About Elliott


Bio

My post graduate experience in mathematics began in 1969 when I was employed as an engineer at Westinghouse Electric Company in Lester, Pa. I was involved in modeling turbine systems and my interest began to focus on probability and statistics. The company encouraged further education and I was happy to oblige them, attending Villanova University at night where I earned a Masters degree in Applied Statistics in 1972.

My post graduate experience in mathematics began in 1969 when I was employed as an engineer at Westinghouse Electric Company in Lester, Pa. I was involved in modeling turbine systems and my interest began to focus on probability and statistics. The company encouraged further education and I was happy to oblige them, attending Villanova University at night where I earned a Masters degree in Applied Statistics in 1972. I coauthored several papers that were published in math and statistics journals. In 1973 I changed career direction and started Temple Dental School, graduating in 1977. I practiced General Dentistry in Linwood, New Jersey until 2013 when I semi retired, but I never lost my love of mathematics.

My teaching experience consists of tutoring high school math after graduating from Penn State for several months until I started working at Westinghouse. I found this to be extremely gratifying, seeing the "light bulb turn on" when a student connected the scattered pieces and now understood not just how to plug numbers blindly into a formula, but WHY it works. Once this level of understanding is achieved, the ease in solving the problems and the good grades follow naturally. So if this philosophy appeals to you, contact me and let's see if we fit together.
