About Charles

I have enjoyed learning about math all of my life. Being in an engineering field, I use advanced math on a regular basis. Working as a quality assurance manager, I regularly perform statistical analyses for manufacturing lines. As a process engineer, I used spatial and planar geometry as it related to the products we were manufacturing.

I previously was a tutor with Huntington Learning Center, a major New Jersey based tutoring chain. I tutored students in standardized test preparation for SAT, SSAT and ACT math, helping students achieve 100+ point gains on their SAT math section score. I also tutored the following subject material: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry and physics. I was personally responsible for programming and tailoring the tutoring experience for my subject tutoring students.

My collegiate coursework included through Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. I participated in the Peer Mentor program at Rutgers University. The program has undergraduate students assisting professors in teaching the coursework material to the Calculus I and II students. This program gave me good experience early on in teaching complex concepts to students.

I understand that schedules are very dynamic. I ask that my clients provide at least 2 hours cancellation notice. I will do my best to reschedule you into a new time slot, whether it be on a temporary or permanent basis.

I am eager to bring my expertise to you. I look forward to discussing a rewarding tutoring experience with you soon!

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

I was previously a tutor with Huntington Learning Center. With Huntington I tutored all math subjects, including Algebra. My two years of experience with this institution gives me great experience that will help your student.

Algebra 2

I was previously a tutor with Huntington Learning Center. With Huntington I tutored all math subjects, including Algebra. My two years of experience with this institution gives me great experience that will help your student.

Calculus

I previously tutored at a local branch of a nationally recognized tutoring center. I assisted students with learning Calculus concepts and then with any homework as necessary. I have an excellent track record, having helped my last student to a 96% average for the year!

Geometry

I have extensive Geometry experience that goes back over 15 years. My Geometry experience is both applied and theoretical, having used Geometry in both educational and manufacturing settings.

I was previously a tutor with Huntington Learning Center. My years of experience with this institution, coupled with my practical and academic experience, give me a well rounded approach to teaching your student the various concepts, theorems and formulas needed to excel at Geometry.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is a favorite of mine. It gives me the opportunity to shape the way your student looks at the advanced math concepts. I have helped countless students at a local branch of a nationally recognized tutoring center realize Prealgebra success, and I will help your student too!

Precalculus

I have helped numerous students achieve their goals with their Precalculus classes. Some have even decided to continue on to Calculus after attending tutoring sessions with me!

SAT Math

SAT Math is a real specialty of mine. Using proprietary techniques (substitution, omit strategies, etc.), I'll help your student go from a 580 to a 700 in the math portion. And that's just an example of what I've helped my students accomplish. Although not a guarantee, I'll typically help your student reach 100+ point gains.

Trigonometry

Through a local branch of nationally recognized tutoring center I have assisted lots of students in recognizing success in Trigonometry. I take the mystery out of Trigonometry, helping the student realize that it's just a puzzle at the end of the day. I'll help your student demystify Trigonometry too!
