About Douglas

I have taught and tutored all levels of math (including pre-calculus, calculus, differential equations, and advanced engineering math) at the US Naval Academy for 16 years and feel particularly suited to help students prepare for and succeed in college in any math curriculum.

Having tutored extensively, I enjoy the opportunity to work "one-on-one" with a student motivated to learn. The student can get direct feedback and guidance in learning the subject. The teacher can get direct feedback on the progress of the student and shape tutoring to fit the exact needs of the student.

I now live in western NC, but expect to move to eastern NC by the end of 2016.

I have experience tutoring both high school and college students in the fundamentals of algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus and know how to help a student prepare for and succeed in college-level math.

I take particular pride in my ability to build confidence, as well as skill, with any student wanting a better grasp of math on a high school level or college level.

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.

Differential Equations

I tutored differential equations at the US Naval Academy for 16 years (1996 through 2012). I was very successful in teaching students not only the fundamentals of solving differential equation problems, but also how the ability to solve such problems would be useful in both the US Navy and civilian occupations. I am also nuclear trained and used differential equations to solve complex problems particular to the nuclear industry and military reactor systems. I feel that I have extensive experience helping students analyze their approach to solving differential equation problems and analyzing the results of those solutions. Being a mechanical engineer, I have also had occasion to apply differential equations to actual equipment and processes in industry.
