I have a B.S. in Chemistry and a Master's degree in Engineering Management. In the course of completing those degrees, I completed a number of courses in advanced math including probability and statistics.
Currently, I'm the Director of the Quality Management group at a Fortune 300 company. As part of my duties, I have taught introductory descriptive and inferential statistics to students learning process improvement techniques for over 8 years. I have tutored students for Huntington Learning Center and Above Grade Level in the past. I have over 3 years experience tutoring students in SAT math, statistics, geometry,and algebra.
I like to use the EDGE method for teaching/learning a new skill. EDGE is a 4-step process where you first Explain what you are doing. For Math this might be some of the theory for a problem or maybe formulas that need to be used. The 2nd step is Demonstrate. I'll show students how to work example problems. The 3rd step is Guide. After Explaining and Demonstrating, I'll ask students to work a problem themselves. I will help and prompt as needed to help the student work through the problem. The 4th step is Enable. After the first three steps, I will let the students work through the problems without any intervention on my part. If needed, we'll repeat the steps until the student becomes proficient.
I also enjoy teaching students techniques for succeeding in SAT math. I work with students to help them comprehend both the math skills and strategy necessary to achieve high math scores on the SAT. I help them understand how "elimination", or "pick your own answer" can help solve common SAT math problems.
I especially enjoy teaching statistics. I like to use everyday situations and data sets to demonstrate principles. One of my favorites is comparing the colors of M&Ms in packages to see if the number of yellow is different from green or blue.
I look to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.
