About Paul

I purchased an early TI-SR-50 LED calculator in the early 70s a few years after it had been out. I was a six grader at the time. It came with a great book of exercises and activities that showed the power of hand held electronic gadgetry when the slide rule still reigned supreme for sending me to the moon. I was intrigued and began the journey I still travel of loving all things math. I eventually graduated high school and went to college. Ultimately, I found full time employment as a software engineer where I leveraged my love of math and logic into a rewarding career.

At some point, I began to develop ways to give back and share my love of math. I started a small tutoring experiment with two other engineers. We volunteered half days in a round robin format with 7th grade students who did not have proficient math skills. That experience resulted in my choice to teach middle school math. I was fortunate enough to realize that dream after several more years of engineering employment. It was rewarding, though rife with challenges.

I am back doing software, and again I seek to share my love of math with those who may not share my joy. Math is wonderful! It is all around us. The color of the sky is shaped by the interaction of incident sunlight and our atmosphere - which is described elegantly by - you guessed it math. The cosmos in all it's wonder is described by math. The overall abundance of elements distributed through the cosmos - yep - math. Even the shapes of crystals and their foundation in our electronic world are all described using math.

So, reach out. Jump aboard. Let me share my passion for math with you. And maybe, just maybe when we are done not only will you have your questions answered, you may even decide that you too have an interest in math.

My background in Electrical Engineering required college level mathematics beyond Calculus III. I worked for several years in post graduate research in applied mathematics doing quantification of random atmospheric laser communication channels. I loved it.

My first degree was in Geology. At the time I was matriculating, I wanted to do research in spatial distribution of industrial resources. I love rocks.

I will meet you where ever your level of understanding is. I'll work with you to uncover the long lost hidden facts that hold your understanding back. I will ignite your curiosity with examples and real world applications of the topics we study. And I will help you understand and solve your problems with confidence.
