I have a strong math and science background. I have worked as an air traffic controller for 25 years and have good technical training. I was a designated trainer at work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 English

I took the ACT test so I know what students are going through by trying to get the best possible scores. Being able to conquer English depends a lot on how you are taught. I am patient and can teach English in an understandable way. I know what they are looking for on the ACT test and will do my best to ensure your success.

ACT Math

I took the ACT test myself. I did very well on the math section. I love math and enjoy helping other to learn to enjoy math as well. I can help to overcome the fear of math. Once you get the hang of problem solving it becomes fun. I had difficulty with word problems, but I enjoy solving them now that I can see just what they are asking for.

Algebra 1

I have a bachelor's degree in aviation which is heavy on math. I recently returned to college and retook some algebra courses. I led a study group in algebra and I did most of the teaching in our group. I taught them easy ways to solve the problems. My niece was also having algebra difficulty and I tutored her. Her grades improved drastically. She had a hard time seeing what the teacher was doing, but my way was easy to understand.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a difficult course, but it is a challenge that can be conquered with the right help. I like to help students overcome the fear of algebra and be successful. I teach them easier ways to work the problems to reach the correct solutions.

Elementary Math

I have always enjoyed math in school. It was my favorite subject. It seems to come naturally to me. In college I would help my classmates figure out problems. I enjoy helping others to learn.

GED

I helped my son to study for the GED test. He passed with flying colors. I enjoy teaching people and seeing the light bulb finally come on and doing the work on their own.

Geometry

I have always loved geometry. I also love teaching someone to how get to know geometry. Once you know the formulas it is not that bad. I am patient and willing to go the extra mile it sometimes takes.

Grammar

While I was growing up I had relatives who were English teachers. I learned proper grammar at an early age. I taught my own children proper grammar as they were growing up as well. I have a very good understanding of the English language and the proper use of vocabulary.

Phonics

I grew up on the SRA phonics program where you learn how to sound out each word rather than just remember what a word is. I taught my own children phonics when the school was not teaching that and my children are much better readers than the kids who did not have phonics. Now my kids are teaching my grandchildren phonics the way I taught them. I teach how different blends of letters sound making it easier to sound out any word.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is one of my favorite parts of math. It is a transition from the normal everyday math to a new way of thinking in algebra. It is always exciting to see someone become successful in understanding algebra and it not only makes me feel good, but also the student has a sense of accomplishment.
