About Ray

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 adjunct professor at Northampton Community College where I teach college algebra, pre-calculus and statistics. I am an experienced math professor eager to help you understand math.

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.

Algebra 1

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

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

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.

Microsoft Excel

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

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.

Statistics

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

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.

Excellent!

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
