About Raymond

While most of my time is spent as a commissioned composer/arranger, my fascination with math came as a result of my interest in acoustics and physics in general.

I taught four years (grades 7 & 8) in a Catholic school. I was responsible for Math, English, Religion, Social Studies, and Science for both grades. Years ago, I lived in Pittsburgh, and had to use Trig and Algebra (before desktop computers)
every day at an engineering company. When I worked for a company that handled the marketing for the New York Times, I designed some statistical software to keep track of sales, income, expenses, etc.

I explain things well for an odd reason: when I was young I had terrible trouble with math...until I realized that math requires an understanding - and use - of proper terminology, and the realization that some math is applied logic, and some ways of expressing math ideas are conventions; (A very important, but overlooked distinction).

I think I can be of help to anyone willing to put in the necessary effort - having a tutor does not mean being relieved of work, but the work is sharply focused and relevant to skill development. Math is a way of thinking, not an obstacle to be overcome. If you have problems with math, I get it.
