Algebra 1

As an engineer, I work with many math and science concepts on a daily basis. I have taken several years of math, biological sciences, physical sciences, and languages in college. During and after this time I have tutored many students in math and the sciences. I have success because I customize the lesson to fit each student’s needs and learning style. I can help you succeed in all of these areas.

Algebra 2

I have taken many college courses in college level algebra and TA’ed homework labs. During and after this time I have tutored many students in math and the sciences. I have success because I customize the lesson to fit each student’s needs and learning style. I can help you succeed in all of these areas.

ASVAB

I have worked for the Federal Government for 21 years - this includes the Army, Air Force, Navy and the Corps of Engineers. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering, Masters in Environmental Engineering and have attended to Air Staff Collage. I know what the military wants out of its candidates.

Elementary Math

I have tutored many students in elementary math in order to build a firm foundation for all the future math and science classes that they will be taking. I take pride in being able to teach several different ways to make sure that the student is ready to move on to upper level math.

Elementary Science

My work as an engineer and my college workload that was heavy in physical sciences has allowed me to be a great asset to those who wish to learn the basics about science. The gateway to adventures in future classes in science are opened by getting the basics down pat.

Prealgebra

In order to tutor in the higher mathmatics, I have to be grounded in the basics of math. I believe that the basics will make the rest of your education easier.

SAT Math

I have worked for one of the major SAT prep companies in the past and I am able to bring a lot of skills to the table for the SAT student.

I like to customize my study sessions with my students to be able to bring out their best. With my previous educational background, I can help students do the best they can on the SAT.

Study Skills

I have mentored and tutored students for over 15 years. I have taught study skills to freshmen entering college and have helped them to achieve lofty goals. The study skills I taught my three sons led them to all be valedictorians in their respective high schools. All three are in computer science and the oldest son graduated from MIT with a double masters in computer science and electrical engineering. I use time management and various aids to help students look at studying in a positive light.
