I have had a lifetime of experience working around many aspects of mathematics and physics. I had a good understanding of these subjects at an early age. As time went on, I developed an intuitive approach to these subjects. As a result, I feel that I am well qualified to bring my understanding to those on the learning path. I like to use examples to illustrate a point, and have a knack for making what seems complicated, seem simple. On numerous occasions, people have told me that I should be a teacher.
Concerning my background, I have spent a career in telecommunications, including work on the space station, satellite communications, and cell phone technology. Much of the work done required use of physics and mathematics. I work well with people of all ages.

Paul has been tutoring our 17-yr old son (high school junior) for the past 18 months in algebra, geometry, matrix algebra, compounding interest rates, statistics, trigonometry, and calculus. Our son's grades have improved (from low C's to high B's, and even some A-work) and he has far more confidence in his ability to learn. Because he no longer spends so much time struggling with math, his grades in other subjects also have improved. And, very importantly to us, our son has learned that self-esteem comes from working hard to succeed.
Paul is an excellent tutor and a great role model. He comes to each lesson fully prepared to teach and work through problems. He is an engineer by training and profession, not a math teacher, but he uses his experience and problem solving skills to great effect. Paul's approach is to work through problems together and let our son figure out for himself how to solve problems. He will provide suggestions on how to approach a problem, often using examples from his engineering experience to illustrate the issue at hand. Our son has really responded well to this approach, it makes the lessons seem real for him, and Paul has a great way of explaining concepts in ways that can be grasped easily. Paul is also a musician, as is our son, so they are able to relate to one another on that level too.
Paul is always patient and encouraging. We are very impressed with his dedication to tutoring-- he seems to love what he is doing and puts a great deal of effort into his work. I know he is looking for more students to tutor. On an interpersonal level, he has a warm, engaging personality and a good sense of humor. If your child is struggling with math, I know Paul could be a great help.
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 have been tutoring various levels of algebra at the algebra 1 and 2 levels for about a year. I have an innate ability with these subjects, having worked with various levels of math and physics for many years. My teaching methods are well liked.
I have bachelors and masters degrees in electrical engineering and have worked in the field for many years.
I have had a lifetime of working around the concepts and problems of all levels of math and physics. Over the past year I have done a considerable amount of tutoring in geometry, and am ready to take on additional students at this time.
I have been tutoring various levels of algebra for about six months. I would be happy to consider tutoring your child.
For the last year I have been tutoring a student in precalculus and other math topics. My teaching methods are well liked by the student.
At this stage, I am ready to take on additional students for precalculus or other levels of math.
I have been working with various aspects of probability theory for many years in various applications. I have an innate feeling for the subject. I am available for several new students at this time.
I have been working with math at many different levels for many years of my life. I am ready to consider new students at this time.
I am familiar with many aspects of statistics including many topics in the AP high school. I would like to take on several tutoring students at this time. On other levels of math that I have done, my methods were well liked.
