About Neal

I have a degree and a Ryan teaching credential in Mathematics from CSU Chico. I was a high school teacher/coach for 39 years. Whether I was in the classroom or on the athletic field, I felt it was my responsibility to deliver the material in a manner understandable to the student/athlete involved.

Many students have difficulties with math. Over my years of teaching the subject, I have had great success in presenting material that students could understand! I feel the presentation is the biggest key to the SUCCESS!

I can present the material in all subjects in a manner that the students readily understand the concepts at hand.

No one needs to proceed without a full understanding of what has been previously taught. Often times it takes but a few key ideas to clear the pathway to mastering material!

"Great lessons"

- Timothy, Tempe, AZ on 11/5/16

Timothy is one of the hardest working students I have ever had the pleasure of instructing. He inquires about everything in the problem, leaving nothing unexplained. He definitely has the ability and drive to be a high quality Math student.

Ozi is an excellent math student. She is highly focused and takes very limited instruction to understand the concepts being taught. She has an excellent foundation in math. She most definitely has a bright future in front of her as she is a person who can both THINK and REASON!

It is truly a pleasure to work with students who desire to learn, like Mimi. That is the reason I went to college, to be able to teach others. I plan to work with Mimi until she graduates.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have been a mathematics teacher for the past 39 years. During that time I taught the following courses: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I was introduced to many and various methods of teaching the same material to the students. I feel that I have compiled some high quality methods to teach the presented material in an understandable and beneficial way. My students develop a sound and complete knowledge of the concepts which I teach. Many times the success of a student in a math class is dependent upon how the subject material is presented.

Algebra 2

During the 39 years that I taught high school Algebra II, I was able to see how this course came from previously taught subjects and its concepts necessary for students to learn in order to move on to Trigonometry or Pre-Calculus. I have an extensive knowledge of the material contained in Algebra II and excellent methods to explain these concepts in a manner that is easy for the students to understand. My methods are outstanding as this country's educators take us into the "Core Curriculum," aligning quite well with the structure of the SAT/ACT tests.

Geometry

I truly feel that geometry is a straight forward, no grey areas, course. It is a course that I have taught for the past 39 years. During that time I have developed a very deep and sound understanding of the concepts presented. I have been able to utilize this knowledge to express these ideas in a manner that high school students easily understand. I find geometry to be a course which makes students think and reason through problems. This coincides greatly with the "Common Core" curriculum, currently being taught across our nation. This also serves as a great course in preparation for the SAT Reasoning test!

Prealgebra

I have taught algebra classes for the past 39 years. I have many and various ways to present the same material, making it both understandable and meaningful to all of the students.

Precalculus

I taught precalculus for 39 years at the high school level. I have tutored several high school and college students in this subject.

SAT Math

I have been proctoring the SAT test for the past 15 years. During that time I have developed a true understanding as to what the students are asked and expected to do on the Math portion of the test. SAT is a Reasoning test, coinciding quite well with the "Common Core" curriculum, currently being taught across our nation. I feel that I can greatly help all individuals who are trying to succeed to the greatest extent on the SAT test!

Trigonometry

I have taught the concepts of trigonometry for 39 years at the high school level. I helped to introduce the subject at the algebra level and developed it right on through and including the subjects of geometry, Precalculus, and into Calculus. I understand trigonometry quite well.

Writing

While in college, I minored in English. Many of my classes required several written papers critiquing and analyzing literature of all forms. I also helped my daughter extensively with her writing assignments, both while she was in high school and college. I became quite fluent in my compositional work.
