My doctorate is in Systems Engineering from the Case School of Engineering. My specialty is multi-level hierarchical modeling of global systems. I am a guest lecturer for the Global Issues course and mentor masters thesis projects for the Case School of Engineering.
My masters of science is in management science from the Weatherhead School of Business at Case Western Reserve University. At Weatherhead, my concentration was operations research and operations management. I have a robust background in linear programming, supply chain, optimization techniques, simulation, modeling, business strategy and technology, probability, statistics, graph theory, game theory, logistics and more. In addition, I tutored students in both operations research and the Executive MBA program.
I received my undergraduate degree in mathematics from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. While at Occidental, I taught Honors Calculus workshops using UC Berkeley's Academic Mastery Program format. The workshops concentrated on group problem solving and verbalization of mathematical ideas and concepts.
I was also an instructor and lecturer for mathematics at Cuyahoga Community College for five years.
I love math and find joy in explaining it to others. I feel that math can be the easiest subject. It's like a puzzle that someone gives you step by step instructions to complete. It is my job to outline the steps and fill in any missing parts of the foundation.

Elementary Math

Learning elementary math is key to mastering mathematics. I have instructed 5th-11th graders in elementary math as well as college students at Cuyahoga Community College. A strong foundation in elementary math is a requirement for success. Imagine trying to play monopoly without knowing the rules. It just would not make sense. The basic rules must be known and practiced to excel. Try me and you will be quite happy. I love mathematics and am driven to convey the points and practices necessary.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Includes study of real numbers, basic algebraic operations, linear equations and inequalities, rectangular coordinate system, graphs of linear equations and linear systems. Applications and activities to build skills in problem solving are developed and reinforced.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Includes simplification and basic operations on polynomials, exponents, factoring, rational expressions, radicals, and quadratic equations. Includes applications and activities to build skills in problem solving.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry introduces the study of points, segments, triangles, polygons, circles, solid figures, and their associated relationships as a mathematical system. Emphasis is placed on the description and use of inductive, deductive, and intuitive reasoning skills. Powers of abstract reasoning, spatial visualization and logical reasoning patterns are improved. Points, segments, triangles, polygons, circles, and solid figures are the structures studied. The focus is on comparisons between these figures concerning surface areas, volumes, congruency, similarity, transformations, and coordinate Geometry.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Basic computational skills. Basic operations of whole numbers, integers, fractions, and decimals; ratios, proportions, and percents; averages, exponents and square roots; introduction to algebra; applications; math anxiety, study and test taking skills.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus completes the formal study of the elementary functions begun in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Students focus on the use of technology, modeling, and problem solving. Functions studied include polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, radical, piece-wise, and trigonometric and circular functions and their inverses. Parametric equations, vectors, and infinite sequences and series are also studied.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

Proper preparation for the SAT is crucial for college admittance and consideration for academic scholarships. Not only does the subject material need to be mastered but, test taking strategy is paramount to success on the exam. I have worked with professors who have helped write the exam and I know of the methods used to construct the problems and associated answers. SAT content for the mathematics section includes: Number and operations questions. About a quarter of the mathematics questions address the following concepts: Arithmetic word problems (including percent, ratio, and proportion), Properties of integers (even, odd, prime numbers, divisibility, and so forth), Rational numbers, Sets (union, intersection, elements), Counting techniques, Sequences and series (including exponential growth), Elementary number theory. Algebra and functions questions. Just over a third of the mathematics questions address the following concepts: Substitution and simplifying algebraic expressions, Properties of exponents, Algebraic word problems, Solutions of linear equations and inequalities, Systems of equations and inequalities, Quadratic equations, Rational and radical equations, Equations of lines, Absolute value, Direct and inverse variation, Concepts of algebraic functions, Newly defined symbols based on commonly used operations. Geometry and measurement questions. Just over a quarter of the mathematics questions address the following concepts: Area and perimeter of a polygon, Area and circumference of a circle, Volume of a box, cube, and cylinder, Pythagorean theorem and special properties of isosceles, equilateral, and right triangles, Properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, Coordinate geometry, Geometric visualization, Slope, Similarity, Transformations. Data analysis, statistics, and probability questions. A little more than a tenth of the mathematics questions address the following concepts: Data interpretation (tables and graphs), Descriptive statistics (mean, median, and mode), Probability.

Very Helpful and Accommodating

Dr. Craig's assistance was very helpful in reaching a positive result on our son's midterms. He was also very accommodating in terms of scheduling assistance prior to testing, despite personal conflicts with the timing. Thanks, Craig!

Mike, 3 lessons with Dr. Craig

Helped my son immeasurably. Wish I would have known about him sooner.

My son was ill and missed 10 days of school. He was struggling with geometry even before his illness. Luckily out of many options I picked Dr. Craig to tutor my son. In only a few sessions not only is my son on track with math and geometry, he is getting "A"s. I want to keep him tutoring my son as needed for "maintenance" so he will keep getting those "A"s and not be frustrated. Thanks for your dedication Dr. Craig. You are one-in-10 million!

Celeste, 4 lessons with Dr. Craig

A great fit - very down to earth.

Craig is a great tutor, very down to earth and easy to work with for my child. He will work through the problems providing several methods or ways to solve so they are easier to learn. Craig is reliable and follows up, as necessary.

Sally, 76 lessons with Dr. Craig

Very flexible.

Made last minute changes to accommodate my sons schedule. Helping him in his class work and get ready for upcoming SAT tests.

Kathy, 16 lessons with Dr. Craig

Very professional, knowledgeable, and committed

I came to tutoring with definite negative ideas about math/algebra and my abilities to do math. Craig worked with me to identify area where I was missing key concepts, and I was able to solve problem that I never thought I could have in the past. I left my lesson feeling a lot more confident about my abilities to do algebra. Craig was very professional, knowledgeable, and committed to helping me understand algebra.
