As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for..." With me, you are getting over forty years of tutoring experience from a Certified, Highly-Qualified, Secondary Mathematics teacher with classroom experience in all math courses from Algebra 1 to Pre-Calculus.

Although I have gained considerable insight from my classroom experiences, my tutoring sessions are not like sitting in a classroom. I am very personable and engage my students in interesting ways. I am excited about what I teach and my excitement is contagious. Since I took several courses in psychology as well as in math and science, I have a real interest in how people learn. As such, I am able to help my students build the necessary bridges from where they are to where they need to go academically. Since joining WyzAnt late last year I have clocked over 200 hours of tutoring with a rating of 4.8 out of 5. This demonstrates my success with my students.

I have tutored students from elementary school to graduate school in a variety subjects. While studying Math, Science and Psychology at Davidson College, I began tutoring elementary level children. Later, while a graduate student studying Psychology and Mathematics at Duke University, I began tutoring undergraduates needing help with Math. The caliber of my tutoring with other students earned me a position on the team that tutored student athletes. Also, I tutored students in the Duke MBA program who needed help with courses in Advanced Algebra and Calculus.

Later, my wife and I decided to educate our children at home. We started with Kindergarten and continued through high school. I assisted them with a variety of subjects over the years as well as with Math. This gave me experience with teaching all age levels and in a variety of subjects.

As a certified Secondary Math Teacher in Texas, I taught Algebra, Geometry, Math Models and Algebra II in the Irving ISD. In that capacity, I worked with students who had a wide range of abilities in math, both the math-challenged and the proficient. Many of my students also struggled with learning disabilities. This gave me considerable experience with assisting those with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia and other challenges. In addition, I worked extensively with students to improve their testing strategies to help prepare them for the TAKS test, the ACT and the SAT. I am proficient in the WyzAnt system in the GED; ACT English, Math, Reading and Science; and, SAT Math, Reading, and Writing.

Although most of my work in teaching and tutoring has been in Math and Science, I have a broad educational background with interests in history, English literature, languages and the social sciences. My specialties include my ability to communicate in terms that are easily understood by the person with whom I am working. I work well with people of all ages, am patient and have an aptitude for explaining complex concepts in everyday language. I live in Irving and am currently available with flexible hours.

Study Skills

Having struggled with ADD in my own life as a student, I understand the difficulties many have in developing good study skills. Since my wife and I educated our children at home, we were able to spend considerable time helping our children develop good study skills. When I began teaching math in the Irving ISD I worked with my students to help them with their overall academic progress which included helping them to improve their study skills. In fact I am currently working with one of the students I tutor to help him become more organized in his study habits. Developing good study skills involves learning good time management; using a calendar to schedule appropriate time to study and complete lessons, such as term papers; learning which subjects require daily practice and completion of homework versus those which can be addressed in blocks of time; developing techniques to overcome learning challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, etc.; and learning the importance of developing overall discipline in one's life.

Chess

I have played chess for over 50 years. While in high school my best friend and I played frequently. At that time, he was one of the top 25 players in the U. S. A. under age 16. Needless to say, I learned much about the game during the many, many times he beat me. However, as time past and my skills improved, I began to win more and more games against him. Although I was not able to play on a regular basis while raising a family, I play regularly now both online and in face-to-face matches. I am familiar with all of the rules of the game and the various strategies which one can employ. I know all of the standard openings and am familiar with most of the standard reference works including Modern Chess Openings.

Since the STAAR tests are basically end-of-course exams in various subjects, I am able to assist students with the preparation for these tests since I have taught and/or tutored the subjects on which these tests are based.

As a Secondary Math Teacher, an essential part of my job was preparing my students for the TAKS exam. We spent a significant amount of time each week with drills and testing strategies in order to help prepare them for the test. We also conducted practice testing sessions through the year to identify areas in which each student needed additional instruction. I am qualified to tutor for both the ACT and the SAT. Besides math, I have a strong background in reading, science and social studies, and I also tutored students in these subjects and helped prepare them for the TAKS exams in these areas.

Great tutor-Thank You!!

I sent him my Pre-Cal review ahead of time before he came. When he showed up at my house he was rather prepared. He even bring his own textbook, calculator, and paper just in case I didn't have one of those things. Not to mention he actually he showed up when I had to schedule a tutor a last minute. Which is pretty great. He was super sweet and really helpful. I asked a lot of really dumb question; he was very patient with me. I recommend him.
