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!

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.

Algebra 1,

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,

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,

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!

The Best

I cannot say enough positive things about Neal. He is, hands down, the best. He is caring, knowledgeable and incredibly adept at figuring out the best way to explain and support the student. He has given my daughter knowledge and confidence that I am certain she will carry with her throughout her schooling.

Jami, 31 lessons with Neal

Very patient, explains in detail

My daughter was refusing to take the class. She was having a very negative attitude about it, but 15 minutes into the session she changed her attitude 360 degrees because she started understanding those geometry problems. Thank you, Neal. You were really helpful. My daughter definitely will have more sessions with Neal. He is great.

Manuel, 3 lessons with Neal

Tutor makes my daughter start to have confidence again

Neal is really helping my daughter prepare for the SAT. She stated " He is very patient and doesn't make me feel stupid like I have with other tutors!" Thanks Neal!

Wendy, 8 lessons with Neal

Great geometry tutor

I am so glad I found Neal! My daughter did not feel confident in Geometry in 10th grade and it was getting her down. I never really "believed" in tutoring online. Neal should me and my daughter that tutoring online works. Thanks for your help.

Anitra, 2 lessons with Neal

Fantatic tutor

Neal has been patient and informative. Answering all questions and going back over anything that needs repeating. My son is feeling more confident with each lesson and as a parent it’s great to see. He is a perfect fit!

Michelle, 3 lessons with Neal

Geometry

We did some geometry problems: parallel lines and corresponding angles, vertical angles, word problem concerning complementary angles, finding the midpoint and endpoints of line segments. Neal was a great teacher, he works with my son at a difficult time in his life.

Eva, 2 lessons with Neal

Patient and knowledgable

Neal is excellent! He was very patient with my son and explained things very well! He is a great teacher with such a passion to teach. He was very efficient at ensuring each question was answered in the amount of timing needed. he explained step by step processes and just a great teacher overall!

Chiquita, 2 lessons with Neal

Good tutor

Mr. Neal explains the problems very well. He is very patient. It helps that he slowly goes over each problem so you can ask questions and take your time working through each problem.
