I am a retired Electrical Engineer, having spent 30+ years with a major semiconductor manufacturer, so I've actually used a lot of the stuff that you are now learning. I was in honors classes throughout high school, and in college I was elected to Tau Beta Pi – Engineering Honor Society and Eta Kappa Nu – Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society.

During my career, I have extensive experience with teaching and coaching new engineers and technicians, both individually and in groups. I have developed training programs to teach people the underlying basic principles of the subject matter from an intuitive point of view that is rarely, if ever, found in textbooks.

I like most to work one on one with individuals. First, I ensure that you understand the basic principles of the topic at hand. I don't just show you how to do it. I also explain why it works that way to deepen your understanding so you can better apply it to solving problems. Then I coach you to think your own way through how to apply those principles to specific problems. This includes asking questions that will start the thought processes that will let you solve the problem, providing increasingly detailed hints, as needed, about what to consider along the way. I find that this is a superior method of learning. When you find the answer to something that you have spent some personal effort on, the answer “sticks” much better than if someone had simply shown you how to do it. It’s that “aha moment” that makes you remember it! More than that, when you're working on problems on your own, you learn what works as well as what doesn't work. That's important!

My goal is to help you learn both the subject matter and how to work with it. As you get practice doing your normal school work, you get better and better at it. After a while, even those dreaded “word problems” are not so scary. (Yeah, I used to hate them, too!)

To minimize your cost, there are some good, free online learning resources that I can direct you to so you can do a lot of the learning on your own if you want and only get help for those tough spots. You can decide how much or how little help you need.

I want to help you get to the point where you can confidently take on new problems without the need for any outside help. Show up for your next math test confident instead of scared! You may be surprised at what you can do.

Gene was always punctual and brought all the necessary tools he might need. He was positive, encouraging, and only interested in the student's success. He was always in a pleasant mood and ready to throw himself into the session. He was extremely patient no matter how many times he had to explain a mathematical process. He was even patient end endured my over-zealous dog. I am very happy with my choice of tutors.

Gene is very intuitive and a great listener. Our first meeting and lesson was excellent. I am looking forward to working with Gene. I am certain I will learn a great deal from him.

8/31/2014

Gene came to our second lesson with an outline of our needs to concentrate on based on the results of my last exam score. This was extremely helpful and a great way to plan for our future lessons. Gene is highly organized and resourceful making for a great study environment.

9/2/2014

Lesson three was very helpful. Gene's patience and listening skills are abundant!

9/5/2014

Lesson four was challenging. Gene's patience and willingness to find a way to help me understand is admirable.

9/7/2014

Lesson five proved what a great tutor Gene is. He recognized I had hit a roadblock and came back with a new direction!

9/11/2014

Lesson Six: Challenge, linear equations do not come naturally to me, but Gene keeps plugging away with me.

9/14/2014

Lesson Seven and Eight: Working on building some basic skills in deconstruction word problems in order to make my equations. Wish I could say it was a breeze, but Gene patiently worked me through seeing it.

9/16/2014

Lesson Nine: Quadratics, who knew! It sounded so intimidating, but Gene made it not going to say easy, but not so bad!

9/19/2014

Lesson Ten: Starting to wrap it up. Review of our study's on Saturday and a sample Test.

9/20/2014

Lesson Eleven: Exactly what I needed to calm my nerves. Review and Q&A on subject matter we have been covering. Sample Test to do tomorrow and go from there on Monday. Feeling better about it all, thanks to Gene!

Ready, set, go. Gene has been an excellent educator, a pleasure to work with each and every lesson. Now it's up to me.

Would absolutely recommend Gene as a Tutor, Educator, Mentor for anyone needing to learn or understand math!

Gene G. is a master. He will show you the ways of the force to help unlock your inner Jedi.

Gene is WONDERFUL! He is very intelligent, kind, patient and funny! Knows his "stuff" and teaches excel in a way even an "oldish" lady can understand! Like this man to the moon and back!

Gene is a great tutor. He is knowledgeable about the subject and prepares extensively for my lessons which I appreciate (and need!). He's very patient and flexible about hours which works very well for me. I highly recommend him!

Gene helped me through my first Algebra class and is now working with me during my second, and final class. He is always timely, demonstrates a great command of the concepts, and can break the information down into terms that help me understand it. I recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent algebra tutor!!

Gene really does know German well from years of speaking it. More to the point, as a tutor he's positive, supportive, patient, and enthusiastic. Couldn't ask for a better combination.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT math includes a broad spectrum of topics including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, graphing and some basic statistical concepts. The tests include a healthy dose of "word problems". Using a study guide, I can help you master all of these areas and teach you how to fit those word problems into what you know how to do. You'll learn from clear explanations of the math principles and coaching so you learn how to actually use those principles to solve sample problems.

Algebra 1 includes: linear equations, linear inequalities, exponents, quadratic equations, polynomials and factoring, among other topics. Let me explain these and other topics so they actually make sense.

I focus on teaching you the "how" and "why" so you understand how the math works. Then I'll teach you how to use it on sample problems by coaching you on how to figure out when and how to apply what you've learned. When you take a test, you will have confidence that you know how to do the math and you will get better grades.

You can do it. I'll show you how.

Algebra 2 expands on the topics from Algebra 1 and adds some new ones, including logarithms, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial functions, range and domain of functions. As in Algebra 1, I'll explain these and other topics so they actually make sense, then teach you how to use what you've learned.

I focus on teaching you the "how" and "why" so you understand how the math works.

Elementary math includes all of the basic arithmetic topics. These include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I can show the student how to study these for the best effect.

Other areas include fractions, decimal numbers, percents, rates and ratios. These are difficult concepts to many of us the first time we see them, but with proper explanation and examples they become clear.

Basic math also also includes some basic Geometry concepts, like area and volume, and it introduces those dreaded "word problems". I teach my students how to translate from English to the language of mathematics. It's very difficult at first, but once you learn a few principles and get some practice, it gets a lot easier.

I can help students with all areas of the GED test. My specialty is math, and I'm also quite well versed in the rules and use of the English language. See my subject qualifications for Elementary Math, Algebra and English.

I have very good English skills. I can help you with reading comprehension, sentence structure, parts of speech, punctuation, when to use the apostrophe (and when NOT to use it), and lots more.

I can show you how to make an Excel spreadsheet give you the answers you need by using formulas, built-in functions, named ranges, data lookup, and macros for tougher problems. I have used Excel extensively for my own projects and professionally in my career. Also, Google spreadsheets (in Google Docs) are modeled after Excel, so you can use what you learn and have your own "cloud computing" platform for free.

Prealgebra covers such things as basic equations, graphing, and fractions. These topics are used throughout all of your algebra studies and beyond.

I focus on teaching you the "how" and "why" so you understand how the math works.

This is my problem which includes the answer: 12 = 4(b – 2) B=5 PLEASE ANSWER WITHIN 24 HOURS (answer)

Tami, 12=4(b-2) Expand the right side using the distributive rule: 12=4b - 4*2 12=4b - 8 Add 8 to both sides: 12+8 = 4b - 8 + 8 20 = 4b Divide both sides by 4: 20/4 = 4b / 4 5 = b All you need to know is the distributive rule...

If we try to divide 2 by 0, why isn't that just infinity? Well, infinity isn't really a number. It's just a concept and it represents a place that you can't ever really get to. Math deals with numbers, and it just can't handle this. Here's a way to think about it. If I divide 20 by 5, I get 4 as the answer. Turning that around, it says that I would need 4 groups of size 5 to make 20. So what... read more
