I have been involved with tutoring students in grade school math, and have decided to expand my expertise into the Wyzant system. My education includes a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have worked in the consumer electronic industry for Zenith, Motorola and other companies. I am eager to share my knowledge and study skills with students, and want to encourage them to succeed in school and throughout life.

Approved subjects

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.

Prealgebra

I have taken algebra courses at Linblom Tech high school and U of I circle campus. I completed an electrical engineering degree at U of I. Also, I have done volunteer math tutoring and have several years of volunteer teaching general lessons as well. I like to give real world examples of how math is used, and break down the lesson so it is understandable. I also use memory aids to help with lesson retention. Helping students is something very important to me. It helps prepare them for life I am very passionate about it.
