About Alvin

Hello,

I am an information technology professional who also conducts tutoring and teaches as an adjunct math professor during my off-hour time.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Operations Research. I have the pleasure of being a Mathematics adjunct professor, teaching college coursework in calculus/pre-calculus and Algebra, statistics, quantitative analysis and business math. I also have WyzAnt experience tutoring high school students in algebra and geometry. I am a very patient instructor with an easy going, professional demeanor. I do not feel professionally satisfied unless my students fully internalize the subject matter at hand. I do my best work in a 1:1 setting.

I have previously taught Math courses at College of Southern Nevada and ITT Technical. I currently teach as an adjunct with University of Phoenix and Le Cordon Bleu

I am also a retired Navy Captain (O-6), returning back to the DMV after a two year stint in Houston and previous 10 years in Las Vegas.

Regards and Best

Alvin

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.

Discrete Math

To whom it may concern,

Please add Discrete Math to my list of qualified subjects. I am a classically trained Mathematician degreed from the United States Air Force Academy (B.S - Applied Mathematics) and received a Master of Science degree from the Naval Post Graduate School (M.S. Operations Research). In the past 20 years, I have used my training to teach as a mathematics adjunct professor and tutor students in both linear algebra and discrete math. I am well qualified to tutor these subjects both in theory and practice.
