“**great math tutoring**”

I am a retired Electrical Engineer, having spent 30+ years with a major semiconductor manufacturer, so I've actually used a lot of the stuff that you are now learning. I was in honors classes throughout high school, and in college I was elected to Tau Beta Pi – Engineering Honor Society and Eta Kappa Nu – Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor

I am so happy we are able to have Gene as my son's tutor again this year. He is great at what he does and honestly cares about helping.

Gene is a breath of fresh air. He clicked with my son and I right away. We are both feeling very encouraged about learning math. Gene is more about getting my son to the point where we no longer need him. That's what Gene considers success! Me too! Until that day comes, we are honored to have him.

Could not have asked for a better experience. My son feels a lot better about algebra and he outlook for that class has improved.

My son said he already feels better about going to Algebra. We are excited to see how much better he feels after lesson number 2

Has been working with my Grandson on 8th grade math. Grades appear to be rising and he has a better understanding of the tasks.

Gene took the time to teach me how relations and functions relate to my coursework in algebra 222. A knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and generous tutor who will not stop supporting you even after the session is closed! I highly recommend his services.

Stays on track, and most of all explains his mathematical reasoning behind the problems. No rush, or hurry. Learned the basics of Geometry in under 30 MINUTES!

Gene is very patient and understanding. He was very well prepared for each lesson. I never had any doubt of his skills and preparation through out our entire time together.

Gene has done an excellent job with my son! I highly recommend him......he is five stars all the way. He treats the student like a young adult and speaks on a level that they can understand!

Lesson four was challenging. Gene's patience and willingness to find a way to help me understand is admirable.

9/7/2014

Lesson five proved what a great tutor Gene is. He recognized I had hit a roadblock and came back with a new direction!

9/11/2014

Lesson Six: Challenge, linear equations do not come naturally to me, but Gene keeps plugging away with me.

9/14/2014

Lesson Seven and Eight: Working on building some basic skills in deconstruction word problems in order to make my equations. Wish I could say it was a breeze, but Gene patiently worked me through seeing it.

9/16/2014

Lesson Nine: Quadratics, who knew! It sounded so intimidating, but Gene made it not going to say easy, but not so bad!

9/19/2014

Lesson Ten: Starting to wrap it up. Review of our study's on Saturday and a sample Test.

9/20/2014

Lesson Eleven: Exactly what I needed to calm my nerves. Review and Q&A on subject matter we have been covering. Sample Test to do tomorrow and go from there on Monday. Feeling better about it all, thanks to Gene!

Ready, set, go. Gene has been an excellent educator, a pleasure to work with each and every lesson. Now it's up to me.

Would absolutely recommend Gene as a Tutor, Educator, Mentor for anyone needing to learn or understand math!

Gene G. is a master. He will show you the ways of the force to help unlock your inner Jedi.

Gene was always punctual and brought all the necessary tools he might need. He was positive, encouraging, and only interested in the student's success. He was always in a pleasant mood and ready to throw himself into the session. He was extremely patient no matter how many times he had to explain a mathematical process. He was even patient end endured my over-zealous dog. I am very happy with my choice of tutors.

Gene is WONDERFUL! He is very intelligent, kind, patient and funny! Knows his "stuff" and teaches excel in a way even an "oldish" lady can understand! Like this man to the moon and back!

Gene is a great tutor. He is knowledgeable about the subject and prepares extensively for my lessons which I appreciate (and need!). He's very patient and flexible about hours which works very well for me. I highly recommend him!

Gene helped me through my first Algebra class and is now working with me during my second, and final class. He is always timely, demonstrates a great command of the concepts, and can break the information down into terms that help me understand it. I recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent algebra tutor!!

Gene really does know German well from years of speaking it. More to the point, as a tutor he's positive, supportive, patient, and enthusiastic. Couldn't ask for a better combination.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 includes a broad spectrum of topics including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, graphing and some basic statistical concepts. The tests include a healthy dose of "word problems". Using a study guide, I can help you master all of these areas and teach you how to fit those word problems into what you know how to do. You'll learn from clear explanations of the math principles and coaching so you learn how to actually use those principles to solve sample problems.

Algebra 1 includes: linear equations, linear inequalities, exponents, quadratic equations, polynomials and factoring, among other topics. Let me explain these and other topics so they actually make sense.

I focus on teaching you the "how" and "why" so you understand how the math works. Then I'll teach you how to use it on sample problems by coaching you on how to figure out when and how to apply what you've learned. When you take a test, you will have confidence that you know how to do the math and you will get better grades.

You can do it. I'll show you how.

Algebra 2 expands on the topics from Algebra 1 and adds some new ones, including logarithms, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial functions, range and domain of functions. As in Algebra 1, I'll explain these and other topics so they actually make sense, then teach you how to use what you've learned.

Elementary math includes all of the basic arithmetic topics. These include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I can show the student how to study these for the best effect.

Other areas include fractions, decimal numbers, percents, rates and ratios. These are difficult concepts to many of us the first time we see them, but with proper explanation and examples they become clear.

Basic math also also includes some basic Geometry concepts, like area and volume, and it introduces those dreaded "word problems". I teach my students how to translate from English to the language of mathematics. It's very difficult at first, but once you learn a few principles and get some practice, it gets a lot easier.

I can help students with all math portions of the GED test. I've successfully helped students pass the GED to improve their lives or careers.

Geometry was the math class that started my love for mathematics and led to a very satisfying technical career as an Electrical Engineer. I love solving puzzles, which is exactly what this subject is to me. This is where I really started to learn how to analyze a problem and come up with the solution.

I can show you how to make an Excel spreadsheet give you the answers you need by using formulas, built-in functions, named ranges, data lookup, and macros for tougher problems. I have used Excel extensively for my own projects and professionally in my career. Also, Google spreadsheets (in Google Docs) are modeled after Excel, so you can use what you learn and have your own "cloud computing" platform for free.

Prealgebra covers such things as basic equations, graphing, and fractions. These topics are used throughout all of your algebra studies and beyond.

Precalculus goes deeper into algebra and includes new topics such as complex numbers, factoring quadratics where the first coefficient is not 1, solution of systems of equations with more than two unknowns, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, partial fractions, and new conic sections such as ellipses and hyperbolas. I am well-versed in all of these topics and I can help you understand these challenging topics. Understanding what's "under the hood" can make them much less difficult to master!

SAT math includes a broad spectrum of topics including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, graphing and some basic statistical concepts. The tests include a healthy dose of "word problems." I have all of the official released sample tests since 2005. We can use these to both identify where a student needs skill updates, and for practice to build your confidence. You'll learn from clear explanations of the math principles and coaching so you learn how to actually use those principles to solve sample problems.
