About John

Hi, my name is John. Let me tell you about myself. I have a BS degree in Mathematics, a BS degree in Civil Engineering, an MS degree in Civil Engineering, and a PhD in Engineering Mechanics, which most universities refer to as Applied Mathematics.

I am a Civil Engineer and have spent several years as a developer of residential subdivisions. I have also served for a few years as a project manager in the design of industrial projects. Additionally, I have been on the faculty of several universities and colleges, including LSU and the University of Houston. So, I have both theoretical and practical knowledge and experience.

I have taught and/or tutored various subjects at the university level in Math, such subjects as Algebra, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, and Advanced Topics in Mathematics such as Fourier Series, Bessel Functions, etc.; and in Engineering, such subjects as Statics, Dynamics, Advanced Dynamics, Strength of Materials, Structural Analysis, and the Theory of Elasticity.

My teaching style is very informal, and it is very important to me that I make students understand all aspects of anything I am teaching them. So, asking them questions about their understanding of a given point and encouraging them to not be intimidated by their not understanding something and to ask questions about anything that is unclear, are the very essence of the dialogue that I want to establish with them.

I strongly feel that I have succeeded with a student only when the light dawns and understanding comes. And I will work at it until that is the case.
