I am a PhD who has taught Math, Computer, Placement testing (e.g. SAT, ACT, etc.), Education, Astronomy, and Economics. I have taught in colleges, high schools, homes (private tutoring), and other venues. I am an academic and a Christian who enjoys helping students reach their goals as they enjoy the learning process.
I believe in being a "guide on the side" rather than a "sage on the stage." When the student engages in real world problem solving, learning becomes more meaningful and lasts for a lifetime. I believe in a Zone of Proximal Development for each student, so that they are constantly challenged, but in a way that allows them to progress step by step -- so that they are encouraged as they see their understanding of a subject grow at a steady pace. I like for them to be involved in the planning of their progress so that they have a sense of ownership of their learning.
I have availability evenings and on weekends and I also available by phone if a student needs immediate assistance.

Bob was great to work with. He was able to break down some of the more complicated problems and show the concept behind every solution. I will schedule another session with Bob when needed.
Bob takes as much time as I need to explain concepts in an easy way that I understand. He is very patient and knows the material. He is flexible in the times he can meet which helps me with my schedule.
I will admit I was skeptical at first, Bob had a much lower price than everyone else listed. But on our first meeting, he was prompt, patient, and very helpful.
We met a total of 6-8 times over the course of a few months and it was exactly what I needed.
I spent time each week after our session going over my weak points. On each follow up session I improved.
Bob truly understands what is needed for a student to succeed on the GRE.
Bob is helping me with statistics. He's great at working with older students that have gone back to school.
I recently took the SAT and scored at the 98 percentile. I can show you techniques to achieve your highest score on SAT or ACT.
I scored at the 98 percentile on the SAT this year in the combined Math and English scores. I can help you to achieve higher scores on the ACT or SAT as well.
I am well versed in sets, functions and relations, matrix algebra, probability, graph theory, logic, mathematical induction, and algorithmic thinking. I am also familiar with Boolean algebra, linear programming, and number theory. I think of discrete mathematics simply as the mathematics that is necessary for decision making in non-continuous situations. I have taught math for 25 years including teaching college Finite Math. I have a master's degree in Operations Research.
I have a doctorate in Education. My studies included a deep understanding of how students of all ages learn best. I have also taught various subjects for Mathnasium, Club Z, and Sylvan, in which we focused on K-6 students. I currently teach 5 and 6-year-olds part time for Waterstone.
I have been playing the guitar and performing for audiences for 50 years. I have tutored novice guitar players once in a while for over 30 years. I have excellent pitch and I come from a family of musicians.
I have been using Outlook for about 15 years and I have been teaching for 30 years. I have a PhD in Education. For teaching Microsoft Outlook, I would start with how to: Create and manage file folders; Add and use contacts; perform Calendar basics; Use Fonts, hyperlinks, and spell check; Recall and replace sent messages; Send automatic replies when out of the office; Send and open attachments; Use instant search; and a host of other functions.
I am especially proficient in girls' soccer, as I was a part of a soccer program my daughter participated in for 13 years. I was an assistant soccer coach for part of that time. I am familiar with the rules and the winning strategies of the game.
As a teacher for 25 years, it has been very important for my students to know and understand study skills. As a PhD, I have had to develop study skills for myself to maximize my learning. I would be glad to tutor anyone to improve their study skills.
Having acted and directed in a number of plays, I have a heart for theatre and would love to share this with others. Each one of us is gifted with unique skills; the challenge of a theatre tutor is to help the student identify and develop the unique gifts that they can bring to a performance. I have taught children's theater for the past three years.
