## Great teacher!

Hayley, 9 lessons with RodneyRodney H. was very helpful during our lesson, any questions that I had about a problem he would go over it until I understood it completely. Definitely will be doing another lesson soon!

I provide math tutoring for elementary, middle school, and high school courses. I also provide tutoring for the math in the ACT college entrance and ASVAB (military entrance) tests. I have been tutoring for 12 years.

Tutoring is ONLINE using the video chat and interactive white board capabilities within the Wyzant system. If you think ONLINE tutoring can't help you, I tutored a high school senior who lived several states away from my home for nine lessons. As a result of these lesson,...

Elementary Math
#### Elementary Math

My role as a tutor for elementary math will depend on the specific needs of the student. For the younger student, it may be help with understanding what multiplication is. For the 4th or 5th grader, it may involve understanding percents and fractions. For the student getting ready for middle school, it could be help with understanding the beginning concepts of Algebra.
As a tutor, I will utilize the library, the Internet, and information obtained from the students teacher to conduct tutoring session that are tailored to the specific needs of the student.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Learning and applying Algebra requires sound math fundamentals (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). If the fundamentals are weak, I will suggest a course of remedial study to improve the fundamentals. My tutoring of Algebra can provide teaching for a wide range of specific topics such as a)plotting points on a graph for a linear equation, b) the powers of numbers (squared, cubed, etc.,c)working with exponents and polynomials,and d) solving simultaneous equations.
I use my personal collection of text books and excellent resources from the local library and junior colleges to supplement the student's text books and to keep current with what the student is learning in their high school or college class.
I was contacted to provide tutoring for a bright home schooled boy, age14. The purpose of the tutoring was to review algebra topics so he would do well on a junior college, math placement test. For this tutoring I used the study guides available on-line at a local junior college. I met with the boy for three sessions, 2 hours each. We went over 60 algebra problems from the study guides. The comment from his mother, “Andy's score was high enough to get him into the math classes just below College Algebra which is where I wanted to start him. So we appreciate all your efforts on his part.”
My background includes courses in Algebra during high school and college and the practical application of these concepts during an engineering career.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

As a tutor my focus is to provide tutoring for all levels of algebra courses from pre-algebra to pre-calculus and college algebra. I have tutored students in all levels of math from a 2nd grade student wanting to learn to multiply to high school and college students taking honors level classes. An example is a student who had a D average in Algebra 2. We met several times each week to review her home work assignments. With my encouragement to have an "I CAN" attitude toward math, she finished the semester with an A. My background includes an engineering career in aerospace, robotics, and machine vision applications. I have been a mentor to individual youth at schools in our school district. I have helped parents coach robotics teams. Tutoring is ONLINE using the video chat and interactive whiteboards in the Wyzant system. If you think ONLINE tutoring can't help you, I tutored a high school senior who lived several states away from me. As a result of nine lessons, she had increased her confidence in math and successfully passed the military entrance test and was accepted into the United States Navy. With ONLINE tutoring, we can both see each other and upload problems to multiple whiteboards. The student can save the completed whiteboards to his/her computer.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

Geometry involves a series of rules known as Postulates (P's) and Theorems (T's). These P's and T's build on each other as the course. To be successful, the student must learn each new P or T as the course evolves. Failure to do this learning will result in the course becoming very difficult to the student.
I have been tutoring students in Geometry, Algebra, and PreCalculus for ten years. I also tutor for the math portion of the GED, ACT, and ASVAB (military entrance) tests. I have helped over 35 students improve their grades and achieve higher results on college and military entrance tests. I am a retired engineer having worked with projects for aerospace, application of robots in manufacturing plants, and the design of custom optical systems for night vision surveillance.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

I have tutored students in all levels of math from a 2nd grade student wanting to learn to multiply to high school and college students taking honors level classes. An example is students taking a PreCalculus class at a local high school. They needed help to understand the course material beyond what was being presented by the teacher in class. Rylie was a student wanting to finish the course with a A to qualify for college scholarships. We met several times each week to discuss the course material and review specific problems she sent to me before each tutoring session. With my help to complete these problems, Rylie received the grade which allowed her to be at the top of her high school class. she received scholarships for college where she planned to study radiology. In my tutoring, I continue with lessons to help the students keep pace with their current course material. As they prepare for tests and finals, I help them better understand how to solve certain problems. If the student's basic math skills are weak, specific instruction is provided to improve these skills. My background includes an engineering career in aerospace, robotics, and machine vision applications. I have been a mentor to individual youth at schools in our school district. I have helped parents coach robotics teams. I have a college degree (math major) and have taken courses specific to teaching.

SAT Math
#### SAT Math

I have tutored students in all levels of math from a 2nd grade student wanting to learn to multiply to high school and college students taking honors level classes. For the math section of the SAT test, I use a specific study guide. This study guide covers problems in algebra, geometry, statistics, and trigonometry. I provide additional materials to help the student understand the more advanced math questions.

## Very Helpful!

Rodney helped me with Excel projects for a college computer applications class. I was struggling with some issues, but he walked me through the problems so I could successfully pass my assignments. He was very helpful!

## Rodney Raised my ASVAB Score!!!

I would highly recommend Rodney's services to anyone who is need of assistance with Mathematics, algebra, or any other numeric tutoring. He helped me raise my ASVAB score in Arithmetic and Math Knowledge by over 15 points. This was done in a constrained time period of two weeks. If we had more time I can only imagine how Rodney would have been able to assist me. Not only was Rodney able to answer my questions but provided me with problems to practice what I was struggling with. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing help with standardized math assessments.

Patrick, 3 lessons with Rodney

## Algebra help

Our grandson experienced a very helpful session. He said Rodney was patient, kind and knew details and found it easy to ask questions to Rodney. It was a pleasant surprise that a tutoring session could so helpful. He is open to future sessions as needed.

## Very helpful but very busy

I was fortunate to get an opportunity to have Rodney assist me with some College Algebra. He was very patient and kind as well as encouraging. I appreciated his help so much! Very intelligent gentleman.

Amy, 1 lesson with Rodney

## Understanding and focused

Rodney provided a detailed and reachable set of goals for my son. He provides feedback that my son appreciates, which makes the lessons easier.

Reggie, 5 lessons with Rodney

## Excel and Statistics

Rodney was fantastic he helped me not only use excel but actually helped me understand statistics which I haven't ever been able to understand. Outstanding teacher wow can't say enough good things!!! Thank you so much. I will be seeing you again soon!!

Jan, 1 lesson with Rodney

## Very pleased

Very helpful and knowledgeable. I am very pleased with his approach to everything. Very easy to get along with, fun and educating. I am very glad I choose him. I learned a lot on the very first visit and that was a pleasant surprise.

## Emergency tutoring

I am so sorry to keep you in suspense for so long. My son got a 75% on his college algebra final. With only two sessions!! You obviously could tell where he was fuzzy and clarified it for him. So yes it was immensely helpful because there was a fear he wouldn't pass. You're going the extra mile for us and it really paid off. Covering the specific types of problems by reviewing his review sheet was genius! Thanks for preparing so thoroughly for the sessions with him. I think that was key in helping him over the hump. He said these things about you; "It was a very challenging test and I was worried I wouldn't pass. He was helpful, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, moved at your pace, good at explaining, encouraging, (he said I was smart). The problems that I missed were the ones that I didn't get to work through multiple times for lack of time." I so appreciate your flexible attitude in being accommodating to our very short notice of a request. You were a life saver for his grade and I'm sure the outcome would have been very dismal without your skillful tutoring. We couldn't have been more pleased with how you imparted your math expertise to our son in a way that he could grasp. I would highly recommend your services to anyone needing the kind of assistance you provided. Our son was receptive to your instruction and it was just the kind of one on one help that filled in the gap for missing understanding. Thank you, Rodney, for your A+ tutoring! I hope this will help you get more tutoring assignments and more kids! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

## Easy to work with.

Rod was able to complete my request on very short notice. He spent time with my son and really put him at ease. My son felt better prepared for the physics test on that week.
