AutoCAD

I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering, and I worked for approximately 10 years in various engineering roles for corporations utilizing AutoCad and other CAD software. For the past ten years I have been employed as a teacher, and have taught AutoCad, CATIA, and UG, as well as Algebra 2, Precalculus, and Physics at the high school level. I have a great deal of experience teaching and using most commercial software programs for drafting and modeling. I work at a career and technical education center in Oakland County, Michigan.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

The main goal of Algebra 1 is to provide students with a thorough and extensive study of linear and quadratic equations and inequalities and graphing on the xy-coordinate system. Typically, Algebra 1 courses also cover functions, at least at an introductory level. Absolute value equations and inequalities are also covered in most Algebra 1 courses. A variety of other topics may be included, depending on the particular course.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 typically involves the study of families of function. Most courses cover 3rd degree or higher polynomials, rational expressions, radical equations, logarithmic and exponential equations, probability, sequences and series, and an introduction to trigonometry. Depending on the textbook, the course may include other topics. Whatever the situation, I'm more than happy to help you master any and all of these areas.
Geometry,

Geometry

Most high school level courses in Geometry include the study of geometric concepts from an algebraic perspective. This includes a study of both two and three dimensional shapes, congruence, similarity, transformations and the relationships between geometric shapes. Proofs are typically covered, usually in a two column format, although that depends on the district and the text. I'm available to help you master the concepts in Geometry. Contact me to set up a time to meet and discuss your needs.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Typical topics in precalculus include sequences and series, trigonometric functions and identities, matrices, logarithmic and exponential functions, and conic sections. Usually polynomials are covered, specifically the rational zero's theorem and factoring and solving higher order polynomials. Each course may vary in terms of other topics, but often times parametric and polar equations are included, and the idea of limit is usually introduced as well as the idea of difference quotients as derivatives. Whatever the particular topics in your class, I am ready to help you master these ideas. Feel free to contact me for help.
Prealgebra

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

The ACT Mathematics Test is a 60-question, 60-minute test designed to measure the mathematical skills students have typically acquired in courses taken by the end of 11th grade. These include Pre-Algebra, Elementary & Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry and Trigonometry. Students often worry unnecessarily over the fact that Trigonometry is included, however, this usually only accounts for 4 problems. I'm available to help you prepare for the ACT.

Quickly able to relate

Ed certainly has a desire and the determination to help the student he is tutoring! He makes every attempt to be available for extra help and has a wonderful math tool kit that is full of helpful resources. Ed was very quick to make my child comfortable with the whole "need a tutor" issue. He is engaging and certainly knows his stuff. After the first visit, my child said that continuing with the sessions is really going to help - which is saying a lot since he wasn't convinced prior to meeting Edwin for the first time.

Explains problems step by step.

Great tutor!! Explains everything step by step, so you can understand it. Excellent at communicating by email and phone. I would highly recommend.

Very Professional and Prepared

I am very impressed that Edwin comes prepared to the tutoring session, so the time is very focused and productive. He then summarizes the session promptly afterward. Wow! My daughter feels much more confident after working with Edwin. I am afraid to say to much more because then he may not be available for us!!
