Hello perspective student. I'm a veteran and teaching is my third career. I have been teaching for over 10 years and it is definitely my passion. I recall graduating in the top 10% of my college in Computer Science. I thought I would change the world with technology. After two successful careers in the Computer Science field, I realize it was preparation for the privilege of educating the minds of the future, YOU! Working with the government and industry allowed me to experience real and relevant mathematical on a different level. The math I thought I would never use became very useful.

It will be a honor to have an opportunity to tutor you in mathematics. I have been a certified math teacher and tutor for over 10 years with plenty of success. Success means the student grew and mastered the material. For some that involved passing exams for others it was improvement of letter grades or knowledge. Instructional strategies I use in planning and teaching a lesson are differentiated instruction, cooperative learning, activating prior knowledge, queuing and questioning, and similarities and differences. These strategies work along with being able to have my students formatively assess throughout the process by completing many examples for practice.

My students have range from elementary to graduate students. Some were trying to pass entrance exams while others wanted to do well in class. My techniques involve making math relevant, real, and as simple as possible. I hope you would give me a chance to help you. So, let's get started as soon as possible. We don't want to wait until the last minute. If it is "the last minute" I promise to give you my best and look forward to working with you at your best!
