I think the first person I tutored was a friend when I was in college. I had an excellent grasp of algebra, calculus, and physics and she had almost none. After two years of tutoring, she was off on her own. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor's in civil engineering and was the valedictorian of the graduating class.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have tremendous experience in engineering and tutoring skills. I still use them every day to resolve engineering equations. As a data analysis software engineer, I use them in the development of engineering calculations and plotting of data. As a team leader at my workplace, I also mentor my team members and review their work.

The transition to Algebra is a very important step in anyone's education. When I took Algebra a long time ago, I could not understand the mixing of letters and numbers in an equation. However, that stage is passed, and it all became clear. One should always see the need for it even in complex scientific problems. Even today, I made use of Algebra to solve an x-axis scaling problem at my regular work.

Many professions such as mechanical and civil engineers require extensive understanding of geometry. Others such construction engineers require good understanding of geometry. Still others such interior and fashion designers require basic understanding.

Geometry is the study of how to measure the world: position, distances, angles, areas, volumes, and perimeters.

Pre-calculus and calculus may appear to be abstract mathematics, but they are not. They are used in many scientific areas when practical problems need to be solved.
