After graduating with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Texas A&M University I taught high school math subjects from basic math to calculus at a public high school in East Central Illinois for 34 years. During that time I also earned a master's degree in education. While there I started the computer education program at our high school. I also served as chairman of the math department for 28 years. During those years I served on the Advisory Panel for the Psychological Corporation in their development of a test to measure Computer Readiness. I have attended many of the International Society for Technology in Education annual conferences.

Even after a successful career in public school teaching I still have the desire to continue helping students to learn mathematics. To that end, I have spent the last 14 years successfully tutoring students (at a private learning center in South Florida) in high school, college, and professional math subjects ranging all the way from basic level high school math through IB math and AP Calculus up to college level calculus. I also have prepared students for the math portions of the SAT and ACT tests.

My approach to tutoring is to help you understand the logic and strategies in math concepts and the methods used to solve math problems. I will work with you to make math easier to understand and to help you succeed in your math course. I will expect you to put forth your best effort to learn.

I will provide periodic assessments of your progress. I will also expect you to provide me with notice of cancellation of our session at least four hours prior to our session time.

Excellent IB Math Tutor!

Al M. has helped my daughter to excel and feel confident in IB math (Topics: Pascal's Triangle, Binomial Theorem, Angle measure (degrees and radians), Arc length, area of a sector, and area of a shaded segment, the Unit Circle, arithmetic and geometric sequences (finite and infinite)). He is very knowledgable, patient and encouraging. He explained the problems thoroughly to ensure she fully understands the concepts in deriving the answers. He also has helped her to better understand the importance of communicating well the mathematics that she is showing for the solution of problems. He is also flexible and enthusiatic about the topics - showed short cut method to computing combinations. We will continue to use Al M. service and highly recommend him to those who truly want to fully comprehend the IB math material, as he will ensure that goal is accomplished. Thank you Al M. -Delena, 5 lessons with Al M.
