“**Excellent!**”

I am an experienced math professor eager to help you understand math. I believe math is a perfectly understandable science. I'm a retired electrical engineer with a master's degree, and I enjoy teaching and love math. I am currently an

My son didn't think he needed a tutor, but after a few sessions with Ray he is really appreciating the one-on-one help. He is able to keep up with the fast pace in class and is better prepared for tests. Overall, it has been a great experience for our family. Ray is excellent. He is very good at assessing what my son needs to work on and is wonderful at teaching. As a result, the tutoring sessions have been a very efficient way of keeping up with his classes. Now he is more confident in math and physics and has more time to spend for other classes/activities.

My daughter takes Honor's Algebra I and was having difficulty with some of the assigned work. Since Ray has become her tutor, her scores have increased dramatically. As a matter of fact, she received a 94 on her last test. Thank you for being such a great tutor. Your work is greatly appreciated.

Ray has helped my son achieve much higher grades in Algebra II/Trigonometry. My son felt lost and a lesson with Ray each week made everything clear and helped him succeed!

My sophomore son has been working with Ray on geometry since the beginning of January. He just got back mid-term exam results and was so happy to see a 20% increase over his last 2 exams. Ray is patient and his teaching style is definitely working. Ray is always prompt and he's been flexible when we wanted to schedule some extra tutoring sessions. My only regret is that we didn't discover Ray earlier in the school year.

Ray was very helpful with a word problem and helped me translate the problem to formulas and then utilize the Excel Solver application to arrive at the problem results. He was very helpful and clearly explained the process that even my brain understood it! Quite an accomplishment!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

As my profile points out, I'm a retired engineer. Algebra is the means of expressing any engineering idea. I have used it extensively. I have also taught it at the high school level.

Algebra 2 is an extension of Algebra I. I've spent many years using it in my engineering career and I have also taught this at the high school Level.

Geometry is most often thought of as lines, angles, and triangles. It certainly is that, but it is also a subject that disciplines the thought process. Once learned anything is possible.

As an engineer, Excel has been a very effective tool in documenting and testing ideas. The graphing capability of Excel is almost always underestimated. I use Excel now as a teacher in my college classes to demonstrate the math I teach.

Precalculus is another subject I've been teaching at the college level for about four years now. The concepts are a bit more challenging, but I've learned how to make them clear.

Some of my engineering career was spent in the testing industry, and Statistics is its life blood. I am very familiar with the concepts used in probability and statistics. For the last few years I've been teaching Elementary Statistics at our local community college.

Trigonometry is a big part of the Precalculus course I've been teaching at our college. The Trig functions are also a big part of engineering. The application of trig functions go far beyond the triangle. They are used throughout physics and engineering to represent periodic motion. All this I can make clear.
