In addition to years of experience with electronic instrumentation and computer-based manufacturing equipment I have for more than 20 years taught and tutored in various mathematics, science and computer subjects. I have worked with high school and college students as well as working adults. I am currently an Adjunct Professor in Mathematics with the University of Phoenix at its Philadelphia Campus. I am very competent in many math and science disciplines, as well as various PC programs, but consider my specialties to be Algebra and Physics. Besides possessing the knowledge I have the patience and explanation techniques that bring understanding to my students.

I worked in technical training for the Siemens Corp. for 10 years. Power Point was used for all classroom presentations, as well as for student handouts. As I was a senior instructor, besides teaching, I developed the course materials for many classes. All of these, as noted above, were done using Power Point.

I am an accomplished speaker, and hold the CTM award of Toastmasters' International. I am a performer, who has appeared in major roles in local "Little Theater" productions of Broadway musicals. I regularly present entertainment programs at senior facilities in the area. I worked for ten years as a technical instructor, training customers on the operation of computer based manufacturing equipment. As such I conducted classes, which required me to speak to groups of 18-20 students. I have also been conducting ground based classes for U of Phoenix for ten years. In addition to this I have decades of sales experience, during which I spoke to groups at sales presentations, both large and small.

GREAT teacher-patient

Barry is helping my great-nephew with SAT math. We had another tutor, my nephew thought he was impatient. He said Barry was a nice guy and very patient. We are so happy we found Barry. I will use him until my nephew has taken every test he needs to graduate high school!!! Thank you, Barry!!!
