Nothing makes me happier after a tutoring session, than hearing my student say, "Now I've got it! It wasn't hard after all!"
My approach to teaching Math is to explain it in little bite-size chunks, that are easy to follow. These I call micro-tutorials, because they are self-contained little learning units.
I have been teaching math in one form or another all during my professional career, which has included college instruction, statistical consulting, in-company training of engineers in industrial settings and high-school student preparation for Texas TAKS testing.
I believe that I can clear up confusion and fear of math in any student who wants to understand it. Nothing makes me happier after a tutoring session, than hearing my student say, "Now I've got it! It wasn't hard after all!"

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.
I successfully passed the ACT test.
Apart from my background as a corporate statistician and teacher of other professionals, I have a long history of publication of scientific and technical papers, based on Advanced Algebraic models, in peer-reviewed journals. A list of my publications can be made available on request.
