About Charles


Bio

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...

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.

Elementary Math

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.

Homeschool

Calculus,

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.
Geometry,

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.

Extremely knowledgeable, great tutor!

Charles and I worked on Econ and he makes the material much easier to grasp. Wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend. Great tutor and a really nice guy!

Reid, 24 lessons with Charles

Great tutor and very knowledgeable

Charles has a great love of Math and it shows in his tutoring. He is really great with my daughter. She really enjoys working with him and even says he is funny. He keeps the work fresh and fun. He is tremendously knowledgeable and has a really good teaching method. She has only had 2 lessons so far, but she is learning a lot.

Laura, 9 lessons with Charles

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.

JULONE, 5 lessons with Charles

Genuinely caring and encouraging tutor

Professor K. tutored my son in college introductory economics . My son had decided to withdraw from the course but because of professor K. he not only learnt stuff , he was also encouraged to study on his own .he ended up with an 83 on the course. Professor k. went above and beyond in texting him to find out if he needed any help. Professor K. is a not only a great professor , he is a great human being ( such individuals are tough to come by)

ZEENA, 2 lessons with Charles

Excellent tutor. Patient and knowledgeable

thank you so much for tutoring my son, in Quantitative Methods, he could not have gotten through this class without your help. Excellent and patient tutor. Highly recommend Charles
