Hello, my name is Robert and I would like to offer my services as a math tutor. Math has always been my favorite subject and I think I do a very good job helping others with it. I have 3 children, and I love helping them with homework. I especially like helping with their math homework. I went to Radford University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, and a Minor in Math. Looking back, I wish I would have went for a full degree in Math because that is what I enjoy. Since college, I've worked as a Software Engineer where I've had to put those math skills to work developing algorithms for some very complex aircraft tracking software applications. Unfortunately, due to the economy, I was laid off from that industry in 2010. However, that same week I was fortunate enough to receive a call from an online tutoring service about a Math and Science tutoring position. I worked there for about 6 months and logged over 1000 hours as an online tutor. We tutored students from high school to graduate college in subjects that ranged from pre-algebra to linear algebra. Our clients were from all over the United States and some were from other countries. We were taught to use the Socratic method of tutoring which is "based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas".
Most recently, I have moved back home to southwest VA so that my wife could be with her ailing father. This meant that I had to give up my position as an online tutor, and now I've begun to miss it. I am currently available almost any time to help out.
