About Erv

I am a retired engineer from the aerospace industry where I worked for over 30 years. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (BSEE), and Master degree in Computer Systems (MSCS). During my career I have had many opportunities to teach computer classes at the university level (Cal State Dominguez Hills), and provided classroom and on-the-job training for over 5,000 U.S. Army soldiers on the usage of a newly developed computer system for the military. Additionally, I tutored math one-on-one many students in elementary, middle, and high school.

My biggest joy and reward I get from tutoring is seeing the expression on the students' faces when they "get it". It's like seeing a light bulb going on and their faces light up with joy. During my tutoring and teachings I come across students with varying backgrounds and mastery of the subject matter, but I always manage to connect with them and create a learning environment that is suitable for each individual.

The subject of math overall is near and dear to my heart. As an engineer I needed these skills in order to be able to perform engineering work in the highly technical world of aerospace engineering. Working in this highly technical field requires dedication and discipline. I live my life guided by these principles and I apply them to my tutoring policies.

I expect the students to be fully dedicated to achieving their goals which are established during a free "around the table" conference with the student (and the parents/guardians). Progress will be measured against the established goals and provided to the students and parents/guardians.

I understand that all of us can use some flexibility in our busy daily lives, but time is one of the most precious commodities available to us. Hence, a 24-hour cancellation notice is very much appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals on your path to success.

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

Throughout my professional career working in the defense/aerospace industry I was involved in designing various systems that required the knowledge and the application of mathematical principles from the most basic concept to the more advanced such a basic math, geometry and algebra. I am well prepared in these subjects as both degrees I hold (BSEE and Masters in computer systems) required a very intense curriculum for the various math applications.

I have had the opportunity to teach computer classes at the university level. These classes were based on the application of mathematical principles as they relate to computer operations/logic. Additionally, over the years I tutored many students, including my own now grown children at various levels in these math related fields.

I enjoy tutoring knowing that I can contribute and be part of many students' successes.

Elementary Math

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master's degree in computer systems. These degrees required knowledge of the advanced topics in math, therefore I am well trained in the elementary math subjects.

Over the years, as a member of my daughter's school based management board I volunteered to tutor elementary school age students. I also served as a private tutor for my now grown children.

I enjoy tutoring elementary math knowing that I can have an impact on the young minds and shape their future by teaching them solid fundamentals of math.

Geometry

I am a retired engineer from the defense/aerospace industry where for many years I worked on numerous electronic systems that required the knowledge and the application of geometry principles from the most basic concept to the more advanced ones. I am well prepared in these subjects as both degrees I hold (BSEE and Masters in computer systems) required a very intense curriculum for the various math applications.

Over the years I tutored many students, including my own now grown children at various levels in these math related fields.

Microsoft Excel

Throughout my professional career working in the defense/aerospace industry I managed many projects all which required in depth knowledge of the Microsoft office products: Excel, Power Point and Word.

As project manager, I had to generate power point presentation, status reports, progress reports, financial reports, all of which required the use of one or more of the Microsoft Office products.

These tools are the bread and butter for a project manager. Over the many years of using these tools I learned the ins and outs of these tools.

The best way to master the capabilities of these tools, is to use them repeatedly. And that is exactly what I did throughout my career.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I spent the last 15 years as a project manager in the defense/aerospace industry. As project manager, I had to provide to management various levels of information (progress and financial), which was presented in Microsoft power point, and support from the other Microsoft Office products, namely Word and Excel.

These Microsoft Office tools are the bread and butter for a project manager. Over the many years of using these tools I learned the ins and outs of these tools.

Microsoft Word

I started using this application many years ago, for work as well as for my own needs. For work I used it to generate monthly Status and Financial Reports. For my own needs I use it to communicate with friends and for legal correspondence. By repeated usage of this application I learned the ins and outs and the shortcuts the application provides.

Prealgebra

Throughout my professional career (over 30 years) working in the defense/aerospace industry I worked on many electronic systems that required the in-depth knowledge and the application of all mathematical principles from the most basic concept to the more advanced such a basic math, geometry and algebra. I hold a bachelor degree in electrical engineering and a Masters degree in computer systems, both of which required a very intense curriculum for the various math applications.

Over the years I tutored many students, including my own now grown children at various levels in these math related fields.

I enjoy tutoring Prealgebra knowing that I can have an impact on the young minds and shape their future by teaching them solid fundamentals of math.
