Bio

I have tutored math and science for 25 years. I started at Pima Community College, tutoring in math, chemistry and physics for five years. Since 2013 I have been an instructor in a GED program. Through the years, many students have thanked me for explaining things in language they can understand. I believe that most students have more skill than they think they do..

I have tutored math and science for 25 years. I started at Pima Community College, tutoring in math, chemistry and physics for five years. Since 2013 I have been an instructor in a GED program. Through the years, many students have thanked me for explaining things in language they can understand. I believe that most students have more skill than they think they do..

I find there are four common areas where beginning students struggle; fractions, percents minus signs and word problems. If these are areas you struggle, I am the right tutor for you, but my favorite thing is graphing equations.
A combination of strong communication skills, patience, and knowledge of mathematics give me the ability to help those who lack the confidence and skills needed to turn math into a friend instead of a foe.
Learning should be fun.

I prefer to meet at U of A, PCC or a library.

A patient and awesome tutor

Al tought me how to finally understand word problems and in a very easy understand way. Also he did not only teach me one way but a couple of ways on how to solve fractions and dividing decimals he made everything so much easier to understand. All in all I would highly recommend Al for anyone looking to learn math in a fun environment. Thank you Al
