Queens College (Mathematics)
University of Chicago (Master's)
Indiana University (Graduate Coursework)
I graduated Queens College in 1952 with a BS in mathematics. Then I went to the University of Chicago and obtained a MS in mathematics in 1954. I also went to Indiana University for another two years (1954-1956) and took all the coursework for a Ph.D but did not write a thesis to finish. While at Indiana University, I was also a teaching assistant, teaching many math courses.
After leaving school, I went to work at the US Naval Research Laboratory and worked there until I got a pension. While there I taught math and computer science courses as an adjunct at George Washington University. Then I worked in Private Industry as a mathematician at ITT and BAE until 1993. After that I became a contract system/test/software engineer until about two years ago. I love tutoring because I enjoy helping people learn mathematics who thought they couldn't learn it; I do this by making the material interesting and easy to learn.
I know how difficult it can be to learn mathematics because I found it difficult.

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.
