About Tony

Great teachers impart knowledge while forging strong relationships.

I have done volunteer tutoring at the Elementary level and privately within my community. I have also coached SAT students for several years with a high rate of success. I am patient and communicate well with young students.

While I am approved to teach subjects such as Science, Reading and English, my great love is Math at most levels. I have always regarded math as not to be avoided, but a challenge to conquer. I am qualified in Elementary Math thru Algebra-2, and working on more.

I am eager to showcase my talent so send me an email, give me a call. I will be one of your great teachers.

I accept payment for each lesson only if you are satisfied.

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.

ACT Math

I love to teach math and have done so to both adults and children. I am a trained engineer with a lot of math in my background. As a tutor I know how important it is to get input from the student so we can figure things out together. At the same time I realize that the student is looking for guidance so I am always prepared.

Algebra 1

I am able to explain math with little effort. I was trained to be logical; I worked as a Computer Programmer for many years, which required a structured approach. However, I am also very caring and patient. I love teaching math to young children.

Algebra 2

I love explaining math. As a young person I enjoyed the challenge of learning math. Today, I welcome a similar challenge to pass on my skills to young minds. I have a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. I am also very patient.

Elementary Math

I have done volunteer tutoring at my child's school. I know how to explain things to young children, and I am very patient with them. I love teaching math to kids.

Elementary Science

I had to master science in school to attain my Engineering degree. I particularly enjoy Chemistry and Physics. Science is fascinating as it is the major force behind discoveries and inventions.

English

I am qualified to teach English because I have utilized both verbal and written English in business communications for many years. I have taught volunteer English in Elementary school. I am familiar with the grammar, the vocabulary and the way to structure sentences properly.

General Computer

I have used personal computers for many years and know enough about most topics, so I can take it to the next level. I am confident I could impart that knowledge.

Grammar

Grammar is important so that you can speak and write in the correct format if only as required in a business environment. You earn respect by having that communication tool at your disposal. By my training and I feel able to differentiate between the formal and informal way of self expression.

Microsoft Access

I am qualified to teach Microsoft Access. I used Access on the job for 3+ years. I linked data from an Excel Spreadsheet so I could query a copy of the company's database file. I know how to write my own queries. I also know SQL scripting. I did formal training in Access at Community College in Clarkson, Ga.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel for more than 10 years, both at work and for record keeping at home. I am able to explain the common formulae and formatting.

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word almost daily for business and personal purposes. It has been a part of my routine for 15+ years. I posses the skills to teach this communication tool effectively.

Prealgebra

I have studied and utilized math for many years and performed exceptionally well. I am able to relate mathematical concepts to real life situations, so it is better understood. I was trained to be logical. I love teaching math to young children, but also adults.

Precalculus

Having studied math beyond high school calculus I am quite comfortable solving problems in precalculus. It is important to engage the student at all times, so it helps that I can speak the language of math quite fluently.

I enjoy watching a student grasp a concept that was at first proving difficult. Patience is necessary since students learn complex ideas at different rates.

Precalculus is always a welcome challenge.

Reading

I am an avid reader. I read almost anything. I read to my children from very early, and I encouraged them to always seek solace in books. I am sure I could do well at teaching reading.

SAT Math

I feel qualified to tutor SAT as I have tutored 4 students for the SAT and they all passed. One scored in the 96 percentile and another in the 91st. I make sure you ace all the easy questions and then take it from there. I am best at SAT math.

SAT Reading

I am qualified to tutor SAT reading based on experience. I have consistently used my reading skills at work as a Programmer and Engineer to interpret and write documents. Written communication is an integral part of my routine. I have also tutored SAT.

SAT Writing

I have always had to be logical in my work as a Programmer. Words have impact and misplaced ones could create the wrong meaning. I have learned to proofread whatever I write and make sure the English is of the best quality. I have tutored SAT in the past.

Soccer

I am an USSF E licensed youth Soccer coach. I coached U-13 coed Recreational team for 2 seasons and was an Assistant to a Boys U-14 Premier team for 2 years. I love teaching soccer to children not yet 12 or so.

Spelling

As a trained Engineer I have to focus on being precise. Spelling has been an important part of my work since I have to communicate via written correspondences such as email and reports. As a professional I have to be accurate or else my work will suffer.

Vocabulary

A good vocabulary is essential for communicating and for understanding what is being said. We miss out on a lot if we understand only half of the words being used or read. To improve vocabulary I focus on reading, writing down the words that are unfamiliar, finding the meaning and rereading the sentence or paragraph. I then try reusing the word in a sentence.

Writing

I am qualified to teach writing. I have written e-mails and business reports on a daily basis for many years. I know when slang is ok and when precise language is required. I have good grasp of grammar and vocabulary.
