About RAY

I am comfortably retired but really enjoy helping people learn. I have four masters degrees in different areas. Have taught at over a dozen colleges and universities. Like tutoring much better than teaching, because it is focused on the needs of particular students.

Have been working with elementary school through college students mostly in mathematics. Can work with you on test preparation for ACT,SAT, CLAST, GRE, GMAT etc. I would prefer to start right away with the particular thing a student has trouble learning. It may be necessary to back up some, if earlier material is really the problem. Try hard not to lecture or put you to sleep.

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

I taught pre-algebra and algebra for VCC for 10 years. I have a good record.

Algebra 2

I have long time College Algebra teaching experience, in addition to lots of tutor time.

Business

I hold MS degrees in Management, and Industrial Engineering, have run a couple of businesses, am computer literate, and can learn what I need to know quickly.

In addition to my 4 masters degrees, my 40 years of work experience, mostly in management, has given me a really good understanding of a lot of disciplines, like quality assurance (I was QA Director for the world's largest ammunition depot), engineering (Chief Engineer for an aircraft plant), and logistics (head of logistics division).

A necessary part of most of my positions was the need to be responsible for my people, who numbered from a couple dozen to about three thousand at one point. I was good at all of the Human Resource functions, particularly the selection of great intermediate managers, and the training of everyone in the work force.

I was responsible for budget preparation and execution for large and small organizations, and learned to "sell the programs" to upper echelons.

Calculus

I taught calculus for Florida Southern College. I have also been tutoring several students.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students in math from 5th grade through graduate school. They do very well, and I enjoy helping them.

Finance

I used to teach corporate finance, investments, and personal finance for Florida Southern College. I still tutor regularly and invest personally.

Political Science

In 1981 I earned a Masters in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. For over 31 years I worked for the government, largely in management and executive levels, where a degree of political sensitivity was invaluable.

In recent years I have been an adjunct professor at 8 different educational institutions, mostly doing math and business courses, the latter involving political issues. All had institutional politics.

Prealgebra

I taught prealgebra for 10 years at VCC.

Public Speaking

The only college course in public speaking was as an undergraduate a long time ago -- but -- I was an active participant in Toastmasters in three different decades. I also took the Dale Carnegie course, and held a number of executive positions where public speaking was required.

I'm sure I can help someone who is starting to learn about public speaking.

Statistics

Used to teach Statistics and Quantitative Methods (another stat course) for Florida Southern College. Usually did it 3 times a year for 11 years. Tutor statistics pretty often now.

Study Skills

Study skills are needed by students at all levels. Important elements of study skills are environment, time management, focus, and avoiding getting stuck.

I have been a teacher at the college level, for over 20 years and have been tutoring various subjects, mostly math and quantitative courses for over two years now. I believe I help my students more by getting them to improve their study skills, than by giving them information.

Awesome Tutor

Ray is an awesome tutor! I was freaking out for a statistics exam and he really took the time to explain things to me! He will use the time however you want it. It doesn't have to be lecture the whole time, which is what I loved. I didn't want it to feel like I was in class the whole time. I highly recommend him! Thank you Ray!
