I am offering tutoring in mathematics, computer software/technology, public speaking, writing, and much more. I have a passion for these listed subjects and love to inspire & encourage students to excel. I prefer to tailor my teaching style to fit the student's learning traits. I have been a tutor for several years and also have worked as a substitute teacher in Maryland and Virginia. My career profession is software engineering.

Let me tell you a little bit more about myself:

I am a graduate from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Psychology. I am an active member of Toastmasters which in an international organization which teaches public speaking and leadership. I have served two consecutive terms as the club membership as the club president and also has served as vice-president of education. In this organization I have encouraged and mentored other members. As a Toastmaster my specialty is giving motivational, humorous, and knowledge-enriched speeches.

When the economy took a downward turn, I was employed as a part-time substitute teacher; several years in Fairfax County, Virginia and then in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. During that time, I had great experiences especially with Elementary School students, mathematics, and physical education. I really enjoy the classroom environment and enjoy expressing my passion for creativity and like to show my sense of humor. Also, as a volunteer with the Reston Community Center, I assisted teaching Computer skills to the elderly and as volunteer with the Fairfax County alternative education program I tutored students that wanted to pass the GED in mathematics or writing.

In my professional career I have been a software engineer for more than twenty years with experience in Database Development and Web Development. I currently run a part-time computer consultant firm where I provide the same type of talents including personalized computer/software tutoring, online and in-person.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve you and your family's academic goals.
