I tutor math and science to high school students and college students. I tutor Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, pre-Calculus, general Chemistry and Physics. I work primarily in and around the Almaden area of San Jose.
Math (and science) can be daunting for students. When they fall behind they get frustrated and lose motivation. Some just give up. My objective is to first gain the student's trust, then get them caught up on content and assignments. As they gain understanding their confidence builds and they realize that they can succeed at math and maybe even secretly enjoy it. Building confidence is the key to success.
Tutoring is a good solution and it works best when you begin the tutoring early in the term. The extra time with one to one instruction and help gives students freedom to explore and question, learn the material and become confident in it.
I graduated from San Jose State University with a BS in Chemistry and a minor in Physics. I completed course work for a Master's Degree in Natural Science. Then I taught high school mathematics for 2 years. I hold a lifetime secondary teaching credential in California.
I left teaching and worked 30+ years in industry, primarily in production engineering, marketing IT and project management. Six years ago, I began tutoring. I generally have about 15 students that I see once or twice a week.
