I graduated and have worked for several years as a Mechanical Engineer, with a Masters degree in Business Administration. I have worked as a tutor in a variety of topics, though primarily in mathematics (pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry and through calculus) and science (physics, chemistry and biology). I have worked at times as a substitute teacher for nearly every subject across the high school and middle school curriculum. I am active with the Boy Scouts of America as an adult leader, and with the local Astronomy Group and can bring these subjects to life for my students with 'real-world' descriptions and applications. I enjoy tutoring students of any ages that are motivated to learn.
I have played chess since a youth (over 40 years). I frequently have used chess as a training tool while working as a substitute teacher in high schools. I am well known in our local Boy Scout Council for always have a chess board (or two) with me at scouting events, to give a different challenge to some of the boys. As a result of this, I have been used as the Council Chess Merit Badge Counselor for the (fairly new) Chess Merit Badge. I am familiar with all the basic moves, and the lesser-known moves and rules (en-passant, castling, draws, 40-move rule etc).
I have tutored at a stand-alone tutoring shop (Mathnasium) primarily aimed at elementary school children and math. In addition, I have done substitute teaching in all grades of basic schooling, from elementary school through high school. I've tutored some students that are taking home-schooling courses, to enable them to better understand the concepts being presented in the course.
