I started tutoring math as a student and continued to tutor again after an R&D career in the "real world" of applied mathematics, and years of teaching math (I have PhD in Physics and postgraduate courses in Applied Mathematics). I am even on the local high schools' recommended tutor list. This multifaceted exposure gave me the flexibility to help students with difficulties by tailoring tutoring approaches to their strengths and weaknesses, which is difficult to do in the time-limited classroom environment. In the process, I help students to develop mathematical intuition of braking complex problems into simple ones and to build their selfconfidence. If needed, I will help with a homework as well.

It has been shown that a good 1-on-1 tutoring tends to move a student from low 6th percentile to the class average, and an average student into the top 94th percentile of the class. Let me help you to move up!

Being retired, I am very flexible. My policy is: if you're not totally satisfied with a session, then I will not bill you for it.

Statistics

I have tutored statistics for several years and I have taught statistics courses at Roosevelt University. I have also consulted as a bio-statistician for several years, both in academia and industry, and used mathematical statistics for decades as researcher in AI.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have over twenty years of experience of tutoring & teaching high school and college mathematics. I have taught multiple College Algebra, Intermediate Algebra and Linear Algebra courses at Roosevelt, Benedictine and Lewis Universities.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have taught multiple College Algebra, Intermediate Algebra and Linear Algebra courses at Roosevelt, Benedictine and Lewis Universities, and tutored HS & college level algebra for many years.
Calculus,

Calculus

Besides tutoring, I have taught multiple courses of calculus I, II and III at Roosevelt, Lewis and Benedictine Universities. Pre-calc and Calculus are my favored subjects to teach because they are ta part of the base of my R&D work in mathematical physics and I love to see students to conquer these concepts.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Beside tutoring, I have taught more than ten semester courses of Pre-calculus at Roosevelt and Lewis Universities. Together with calculus it is my favored subject to tutor and teach because I can draw on decades of R&D experience when I relied very much on knowledge of these subjects.

Prepared, knowledgeable and helpful

Jerry met my son at the DG library - my son has a CAlc II final coming up so my son sent sample problems ahead via email as requested. My son said Jerry was excellent and came well prepared. He felt comfortable and was able to understand the material. Highly, highly recommend Jerry!

Very Knowledgeable Tutor

It was easy to schedule a date and time. He took his time explaining and did not rush through the material. I was very appreciative of the help received. We went over Algebra II Trig problems to help me prepare for my test.
