About Charles

Hi,

My name is Charles. I’m a retired college professor. I am an economist and applied mathematician. I taught economics, finance, and applied math at the State University of New York (SUNY).

I’m also a part-time member of the U.S. Coast Guard.

I tutor all levels of math including, calculus, linear algebra, elementary school, junior high school, and high school math. I also tutor students in economics, as well as probability & statistics. Additionally, I’ve taught students taking the AP courses in calculus, statistics, and economics. I also tutor for the SAT, GRE, and GMAT. When I took the GRE exam I got perfect scores. The GRE is like the SAT on steroids. It’s used when applying to graduate school. When I took the SAT many years ago, I got nearly perfect scores.

My research and publishing has all been in the area of mathematical economics and finance. My work has also incorporated a great deal of material in the areas of philosophy, history, literature, physics, etc. Over the years I have developed a deep understanding of these areas.

Consequently, in my teaching of math and economics I have incorporated some material on the philosophy of math, philosophy of economics, philosophy of science, as well as the history of these disciplines. I have seen that this helps the students. They find out where the math comes from and how we got to this point in our understanding of the material. It makes learning math and economics less dry. It enriches the learning experience. And it makes tutoring sessions more interesting and more fun. But ultimately, the goal is to improve the student’s understanding of the material and to raise the student’s grade.

I have published several scholarly papers and two books. My understanding of the subject material comes from doing research and publishing, teaching at the university level, and handling some consulting assignments over the years.

I live in Huntington, New York. I used to live in St. James near Stony Brook University. I moved a few years ago to be closer to my friends who live west of my location on Long Island.

In addition, I’ve delivered lectures on the philosophy and history of math at a National Science Foundation program for university professors.

My clients believe that I provide real value to the student I’m tutoring.

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.

Calculus

Calculus is one of those subjects that is really interesting. When I first took calculus it opened the world up to areas I had never thought about. I learned more about the world from calculus than any other subject I ever took in school.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is important since it provides the fundamentals for all the math to come in higher grades. Students learn more when they also learn the history of the math and how it’s applied. Which are both areas I try to incorporate into my teaching.

Geometry

I’ve tutored students in geometry for about 20 years. One of the biggest concerns of students taking geometry is learning the proofs. Since this is their introduction to proof writing. Fortunately, I am able to make proof writing fun and my students always master this part of geometry. Moreover, geometry should be the most fun for any student. Look around your room. Look at all the shapes and dimensions. Then think about area and volume. Geometry is a part of every life every day.

Very knowledgable, patient, kind and an exceptional teacher

He taught me a lot about economics that I could never learned or understood on my own; he made me realize that these are techniques that I use every day, but because they are thought of and used differently I make them harder than what they really are. I can not thank him enough.
