About Geoffrey

I excelled at Math while in high school and got A’s in Calculus in my first undergraduate career. I then got a second undergraduate degree in Math and Computer Science, concentrating in computer programming at the University of Illinois at Chicago, yet still doing well in the required Math courses. My favorite part of higher mathematics is trigonometry. That leads directly to the Calculus that you will need for engineering. My approach for teaching mathematics is practice, practice, practice. Learn the logic of solving a particular problem, and then apply that logic to similar problems.

My first undergraduate degree is in political science, but back then the University of Notre Dame called it “Government and International Studies.” I learned to read well, take good notes, and analyze the readings for themes and main or important points. Just five years ago I realized that I still enjoyed reading, writing, research, and analysis of themes, so I entered a Masters degree program in Communication. The teachers at IPFW were not only intelligent, but pushed me and my fellow Graduate students to work hard and explore ideas that are not so obvious to most readers. I achieved my Master's degree in 2013 and am now very involved with the political campaigns and political discussions in Indiana and across our nation. I would tutor like George Wythe tutored Thomas Jefferson, in depth using the Classics and accepting only excellent work. I will teach you how to think, which is very important if you want to excel in any field.

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.

Political Science

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame. My Masters degree in Communication included a Classroom Communication lecture that discussed the philosophy of Progressivism. I am currently involved in a five hour seminar on Freedom and what actions a person can perform to increase Freedom in our country. Those three reasons, along with my current involvement with political campaigns and being a precinct committeeman are solid reasons why I am qualified to teach and tutor political science.

Prealgebra

I had good grades throughout elementary and high school in mathematics. I took Calculus in college and got A's. I have a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Univ. of Illinois at Chicago. And my daughter teaches Math at a parochial school in Fort Wayne for Junior High students. She got her Math smarts from me !
