Hi, my name is Ray. I am a retired NASA aerospace engineer with 18 years of college teaching and tutoring experience in mathematics, programming, logic and project management. Although new to Wyzant, over the years I have taught thousands of students and tutored hundreds of others.

I have a Master’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from Stanford and Arizona State University (magna cum laude). I started teaching and tutoring as a side job and discovered I greatly enjoy helping others learn and grow. Now that I am retired, I can dedicate more of my time to helping others.

I love teaching and tutoring online, as it provides great flexibility to the student. I like working one-on-one with you. I will provide an overview of the topic you wish to improve in, work through examples, show you additional resources you can use, and provide homework help.

Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Patient and easy to understand

Ray was excellent!! He explained everything really well. He was patient and made me feel comfortable during the entire session!! He was knowledgeable but able to bring it down to my level.

Connie, 1 lesson with Ray

Clearly explained subject matter

Ray tutored by 9th grade son in geometry. He was able to find a connection with him initially and then was very clear in his explanations. My son was reluctant to try a tutor but now is looking forward to his weekly sessions.

Michael, 6 lessons with Ray

Excel lesson

Ray is excellent with Excel charts. He knows charts very well. He knows how to use the MAC keyboard shortcuts. He is very patient and resourceful. He is a great teacher.

Alexandria, 3 lessons with Ray

Ray knows his stuff. I was super impressed by his knowledge and patience.

We worked on my homework in Excel. I was unsure of some of my answers. He helped with that and to put things in perspective. I have a much better understanding of what I am looking at and how it relates to business. Great and highly knowledgeable.

Awesome Experience!

This man is a lifesaver! Ray is very knowledgeable of excel technology and was considerate of my needs. We were able to quickly resolve my concerns which included both homework problems and technological conflicts when video conferencing. I’ll definitely go back to him if I ever need excel help again. And, I fully recommend him to any friend, college student or person seeking personal enrichment/career advancement.

Andrew, 1 lesson with Ray

Fanatic tutor

Ray really goes in depth when it comes to excel based problems. He would take the time to not only help me and show me how the problem was done, but he took the time to really break down the problem sets. Ray goes out of his way to help challenge you with problems he provides to help you fully grasp your area of need. I can't say enough about how great his services were. For any excel issues I have going forth I can say with confidence that I have someone who will take the time to help me become an expert. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into our sessions Ray.
