Bio

I first began tutoring in high school for a program at my church. I enjoyed helping others solve problems and develop techniques to remember concepts or turn hard problems into easy problems. I believe that repetition and learning concepts is the key to learning any subject. That is my teaching strategy. I help my student understand why each step is needed.

I first began tutoring in high school for a program at my church. I enjoyed helping others solve problems and develop techniques to remember concepts or turn hard problems into easy problems. I believe that repetition and learning concepts is the key to learning any subject. That is my teaching strategy. I help my student understand why each step is needed. I love math and I have used it substantially in my undergraduate studies for my Electrical Engineering degree. I have led many study sessions in college. As an Officer in the Navy I was responsible for the training of my subordinates.

I aspire to one day become a certified teacher or a college professor. I am going to school online for a Masters Degree in Education. I personally enjoy teaching and passing on the knowledge that I have obtained. Although math is my specialty I am available for a variety of subjects. I look forward to working with all who seek knowledge.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring K-6th students for over 2 years. I am patient and I use games and interactive techniques to make learning fun as well as effective. In K-6th, students are still learning the fundamentals which is key to understanding future concepts, so I believe that this is an extremely important time in their education.

Study Skills

Studying is an important part of the learning process. I have been helping others study/understand information better for over 10 years. It is not enough to just get the information. I have taken courses for a Master's in Education in which I learned about the different ways people learn and I use that information to help others process and absorb information at a faster and more efficient rate than they were before.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Throughout my studies I have taken and tutored algebra 1, algebra 2, pre-calculus, and calculus. I received an A in each class. Algebra 1 is the introduction to working with quantities that can vary or are unknown. In this area of study we learn to manipulate variables and algebraic expressions. I can help make any concept or process associated with algebra 1 easier to understand.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Throughout my studies I have taken and tutored algebra 1, algebra 2, pre-calculus, and calculus. I received an A in each class. Algebra 2 contains more advanced concepts of algebra. I can help make any concept or process associated with algebra 2 easier to understand.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I took a Differential Equations class in college and received an A. Differential equations that have derivatives in them and our goal is to find the original function. We need to understand the calculus concept of integration in order to accurately solve a differential equation. First, the student must be able to understand what type of differential equation it is because each type requires different methods to solve it. I help the student understand the different types of differential equations and the methods we can use to solve them.

Beth, 11 lessons with Major

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Major is helping my son with Algebra 1. He is very kind and patient and my son feels confident Major can help him understand the concepts and excel in the course.

Cynthia, 6 lessons with Major

Very knowledgeable

I haven't had a math class in years so getting refreshed on everything is a big relief. Major has helped me find out quicker and more efficient methods to my math problems. I look forward to more tutor sessions.

Diane, 6 lessons with Major

Excellent teacher!

Major is tutoring me with GRE subjects. He is very patient and breaks everything down for me understand. We have had 2 sessions and I am feeling really good about my progress. Looking forward to reaching my goal with his help!

Excellent Match

Major is a joy to work with. He is very flexible to our schedule and his knowledge is beyond compare.

Terry, 11 lessons with Major

Super Knowledgeable and Super Patient

Major clarified the subject for me. He taught me, "easy to remember" shortcuts. Explaining why certain methods were used and the correct way to use them. Very very patient and super knowledgeable. He wants to make sure you understand the subject. I'm very hopeful of me passing my chemistry class. I will definitely call on him in the near future!

Tina, 1 lesson with Major

Patient and Smart

Major is excellent. I like going to sessions with him and he shows me shortcuts to answering my questions in preparation for my SAT exam. He is easy to understand and very knowledgeable. I did not know how many areas I needed help in until I started doing assessments with him. I am excited about working with him each week when school reopens. Major is helping me with SAT prep and geometry in particular. He makes these topics very easy to understand.

Very patient, knowledgeable, and accommodating!

Daughter continues to look forward to sessions with Major as she claims that he can explain things so that it 'makes sense'. He appears to be extremely patient with her.
