About Carl

I have had many careers in my almost 62 years. I worked as a professional cook (5 years), a computer hardware technician (5 years), a computer hardware test tech instructor (2 years), a computer software consultant (20 years) , and a building contractor (12 years).

I attended School at Central New England College and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I studied chemical and mechanical engineering and have a degree in business management. I also have a current contractors supervisors license. I love to read and learn new things.

I started tutoring in High school, where I helped the fullback on my football team to go from a D to a B in math. My experience as a test tech instructor was with a Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) program. Here I was training people from many walks of life, helping them make the transition into a new career field. I find helping students discover their ability to accomplish tasks previously thought to be insurmountable very rewarding. I hope I will be able to help you and yours to find the same satisfaction.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I was an AP math student throughout high school. I went on to college to study engineering at WPI. When I was in high school I tutored the fullback on the football team. We got his math grade from a D to a B.

Elementary Math

When I was in high school I tutored the fullback on the football team. We got his math grade from a D to a B. I am the oldest of eight children and I have no problem relating to students of all ages.

Elementary Science

I excelled in all of the areas of scientific study and would love to share my love of these topics with your students.

Fortran

I passed a course in Fortran 4 in college. I programmed Fortran 4 on a Prime computer for four years in Worcester MA. I worked as a computer consultant for over 20 years.

Geometry

I was an AP student from third grade throughout high school. I went on to college to study engineering at WPI. I would love to show your student how geometry can be relevant in their daily life.

Microsoft Word

I have been programming computers since 1968. Microsoft Word is the most common word processor available in today's market. It is the type writer for the twenty first century. Allow me to share with you the tips I have gained over the years.

Physical Science

Physical science or earth science has been a love of mine since I was a boy. I have been an AP student since the third grade. Science has always been my forte. Let me share my love of this subject with your student.

Reading

I have been an avid reader all my life. Reading is the key to opening up the endless possibilities in life. Let me help your students open up the vast array of entertainment and knowledge locked in the fiction and nonfiction so readily available to the reading community.

Swimming

I have been tested and passed my Red Cross senior life saving badge. I live on a lake and swim for recreation and exercise in the summers. I have competed on swim teams in my youth. I am familiar with multiple swimming strokes including the crawl, Australian craw, breast stroke side stroke, butterfly, back stroke and elementary back stroke.

Vocabulary

I am an avid reader. I always read with a dictionary beside me. Words are power and the light to clear the darkness. Nothing helps you hold your own in any conversation like a good vocabulary. Only with a good vocabulary, can you speak at any level you desire. Nothing gives a wrong impression of your knowledge faster than bad grammar and improper use of vocabulary.
