About Craig

I'm a retired engineer and math teacher with a love for teaching anyone who wants to learn. As an engineer, I regularly used all levels of math (from arithmetic through calculus), statistics, and physics. I hold a California Single Subject Teaching Credential in math and physics (I taught high school math from pre-algebra to geometry).

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

As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, useful in all sorts of applications. As a math teacher working with many students, I found that a lot of people struggle with the subject for a variety of reasons. My goal as a math tutor is to help each student develop their math skills in a positive and constructive way to allow them to accomplish their own goals.

Algebra 2

As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, including several topics taught in Algebra 2 and College Algebra. As a math teacher, I've worked with several Algebra 2 and College Algebra students from many Sonoma county high schools and colleges, and online courses. While the Algebra curriculum is differs between schools and teachers, I work with each student to develop their math skills within the framework of the Algebra course they are taking.

Geometry

As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, useful in all sorts of applications. As a math teacher, I've worked with several geometry students from the local area high schools and online courses. I found that each school and teacher presents Geometry in unique way; My goal as a math tutor is to help each student develop their math skills in a positive and constructive way to succeed their particular class.

Physics

With 30+ years of engineering work, I've helped several high school and college students succeed in their physics courses. My qualifications include a California Single-Subject Teaching Credential for Math and Physics and a Mechanical Engineering degree, which included calculus-based physics courses.

Precalculus

As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, useful in all sorts of applications. Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry are particularly useful in engineering and science fields. I've worked with several Pre-Calc/Trig students from local high schools and colleges to successfully pass their class. While each course presents the math in different ways, depending on school and teacher, I help students develop their math skills to meet their goals within each class, and beyond.

Statistics

As an Engineer, I used statistics to identify and solve many issues in design, manufacturing, and business. As a math teacher, I've helped several students, who are pursuing a variety of careers (Engineering, Business, Nursing, Law, Psychology, etc.), successfully complete their Statistics courses. My experience also includes working with students from several of the local colleges and universities, as well as some online courses.

Trigonometry

As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, useful in all sorts of applications. Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry are particularly useful in engineering and science fields. I've worked with several Pre-Calc/Trig students from local high schools and colleges to successfully pass their class. While each course presents the math in different ways, depending on school and teacher, I help students develop their math skills to meet their goals within each class, and beyond.

Makes it understandable

I didn't understand my trig homework at all, and after meeting with Craig, he made it all make sense. I completely understood the homework after our session. Thank you Craig!
