About Rodger

My experience in teaching comes from my life's journey of learning with others. With a Bachelor in Science in Electrical Engineering, which I achieved while working full time in industry, I believe that I can provide a significant contribution to any math student. While finding the correct solution to the problem is important, the most important aspect is understanding how to find the correct answer and it is this principle I strive to instill and all my students.

I specialize in tutoring math for not only success in school but also understanding the material. Whether we are working on beginning Algebra problems or advanced Calculus problems, the concept of understanding the underlying principles is the most important thing. The reason for this approach is that in the final analysis it will provide the most success. I like to provide students different ways of looking at the same problem especially if the student is struggling with the standard approach.

In an effort for our sessions to be as productive as possible with very little distractions, I usually schedule sessions at a library. However, if the student prefers a different location, I am more than willing to travel to that location.

I look forward to working with you and helping you understand math so that you can enjoy the success that will follow naturally.

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.

Computer Programming

While working at the USPS I developed a near real time monitoring system which ran on Linux and was written in several languages to accomplish the task. The languages I used were Python, awk, expect, C++, and bash scripts. I also took programming courses while pursuing my engineering degree.

Electrical Engineering

I have a BSEE from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I believe that I can tutor in some subjects such as Analog Electronics while I would be weaker in others such as Electromagnetic Field Theory.

Networking (Computer)

I took EE453 in college and it was computer networks. I also maintained some of the local LAN at the USPS.

UNIX

I used UNIX for about 4 years while working at the University of Tennessee computing center.
