Lehigh University (Civil Engineering)
I have recently tutored someone in algebra which I am very comfortable in doing. I am presently tutoring someone in calculus which is a bit more challenging. I graduated from Lehigh University in 1972 as a Civil Engineer and a few years ago retired from the State. I took Calculus 1, 2 and 3 in College a long time ago so am presently refreshing my knowledge of it. I have the ability to read a textbook, interpret it, then explain it in simpler terms to help someone understand it. I enjoy helping people with math which comes relatively easy for me.

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.

He did have other tutors at OCC, but he told me that I explained things much better than they did and I helped him more.
