I have spent over 27 years in the engineering profession utilizing a vast array of my skills in the areas of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus. In addition, incorporated various levels of Chemistry and Physics. Over the lasts 20 years, I have tutored both individual and in groups of students I. Basic math to differential equations (calculus). These students ranged form barely understanding math concepts to seniors in advance Calculus levels. I struggled in high school and college, but learned the building blocks of how math and science work together to not only create success in the learning process, but creates internal stimulation to gets their own skills which builds their self-esteem. My method of helping students learn is to allow them to teach them selves which allows them to be the active participant. This allows them to acknowledge the differences between learning and doing. True and concept learning is my approach. This has worked for me and is the basis for those who truly understand the "why" rather than the "what or how" I implement learning at the level of the student.
As part of my undergraduate Electrical Engineering work, I successfully completed coursework in all levels of Algebra, deductive logic in software and math analysis, 2 years of math ranging from Pre-calculus to differential equations. Completed probablilistic analysis from both the engineering and business perspective and trigonometry. I have tutored students from junior high school to freshman college students on many facets of math and science. My preference is to engage with students to understand problems not only in terms of equations and progressions of analytical word problems , but to use descriptive methods and examples to help visualize problems relative everyday life.
I have visual and analytic tools that enhance and allow not only the the student to track their progress, but to provides a progressive checklist that tracks their progress throughout the program. Questions and answer discussions at the end of each tutorial session is a great way to summarize and convey skills leaned , and to define ways to prepare for future meetings.

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.
