About Gerald

I convey to students that not only is math fun but that everything in life involves math in one form or another. I emphasize that math is a process of getting from point A to point B. I stress that understanding the process and being able to duplicate the process is more critical than just getting the correct answer. I ask students to subject the solution to common sense to make sure that the proposed solution is reasonable. Simply because the calculator gave a result of 150 percent does not translate into the solution being 150 percent. Just as there at least two different routes one can follow to get from city A to city B, there is more than one method to solve a math problem.

I Have taught various math classes from developmental math, beginning and advanced algebra and univariate statistics, at several community colleges. I have also taught Applied Calculus at a four year university. I use my experiences gained from over thirty years experience as a manufacturing engineer to demonstrate the application of mathematics to situations in the real world. These situations occur in manufacturing or healthcare.

I earned both a BS(1968) and MS (1969) in Industrial Management from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a PhD (2005) in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University. I studied Decision Science at the Doctoral Level for a year after a tour of Duty in Viet Nam before returning to work as a manufacturing engineer.

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

I have taught basic and advanced algebra at a local community college for over 10 years.
I taught applied calculus at American University in DC for two semesters. I have taught undergraduate statistics classes at North Carolina A&T both as a PhD student and as an instructor. I completed the PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering in 2009 from NC A&T. My BS and MS were earned from Georgia Tech.

Linear Algebra

I have taken numerous courses in linear or matrix algebra. Additionally I have successfully taken several courses in operations research,including linear, non-linear and dynamic programming, all of which require listing constraints as well as the objective function in matrix format.

Study Skills

While studying for the PhD in Industrial Engineering, I worked approximately 55 hours a week, taught two nights a week at a local community college and took a course at night. I was able to accomplish each of these tasks only by being organized, disciplined and focused on the next task at hand.
