About Wayne


I have degrees in Engineering, Education, and Business. My degrees also include majors in mathematics, chemistry, statistics, and information systems. My formal education includes two Bachelor's, two Master's, and a PhD.

My elementary education was conducted in a one room school house without electricity. I started college at 16 with minimum preparation. I was a not a good student during my first college efforts.

I served in the US Navy for three years. My employers included University Missouri, Virginia Tech, and Lehigh University of Missouri. I worked for several commercial companies including IBM, Air Products & Chemicals, and TKC Communications. I recently retired as a contractor for Department of Justice.

I have three sons, which I tutored in elementary, high school and college. I have also provided adult education training for seminars. I tutored a student in mathematics, who successfully passed the examination to get into dental college. I have tutored several student who failed to keep current in their course and needed assistance to get adequate foundation to continue on their own.

Often, I am asked to tutor a person with a specific goal such as passing a course or a test. A basic approach that I use is to first understand the likely requirement to achieve the goal. I establish or select problems to evaluate the understanding of the student, and then prepare or select problems from a text to work through specific problems until the student can validate their understanding across the required scope. If the goal is to pass a test, I usually take material based on the teacher's previous testing style and help from the student, and make one or two hypothetical tests for the student to complete and review. Frequently, students have not kept up with their homework and need understanding to follow daily assignment. My efforts frequently allows the student to become independent once they have master their previous assignments.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught algebra for students attending middle school and high school. I am currently tutoring 7 grade students in mathematics. I also have a life time teaching certificate in high school mathematics for the state of Missouri. Additionally, I have taught course for over five years in college that requires the ability to perform algebra. Finally, I have a degree in Education with a major in mathematics and a PhD in Engineering.

Business

I received a Master in Business Administration from Virginia Tech. My MBA curriculum was quantitative methods, which focuses on technical aspects of business applications. I have also taken about 12 hours of accounting which plays a major role in many of the MBA programs. Students that have challenges with Statistics, Mathematics, and computer related tasks can obtain significant benefits from my support. Ideally, I would like to follow a student through his or her program with assistance as needed. I have taught business and engineering courses at the following three Universities: University of Missouri, Virginia Tech, and Lehigh University.

Geometry

I taught geometry as part of my requirement to qualify for my certificate for teaching math in the secondary school systems. I have approximately 40 semesters of college credits in mathematics or related courses. Examples of courses that I have taken include the following: Geometry, Solid Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Calculus, Differential Equations, Theory of Equations, Numerical Analysis, Mathematical Statistics, and etc. I am clearly qualified to support your goals in Geometry.

Prealgebra

I have reviewed and understand the Virginia Standards of Learning in mathematics for middle school students. Additionally, I have tutored several students in prealgebra and they all have improved significantly. I have a life time teaching certificate for secondary school mathematics which includes pre algebra. My teaching experience includes tutoring boys in the 7th grade through high school. Additionally, the county has validated my security clearances which I carry with me.

Statistics

I have degrees from the college of Education, Business, and Engineering. In these different areas I have majored in statistics in two of the disciplines. I have completed courses in analysis of variance, co-variance, and experimental design. My major for my MBA was qualitative analysis. My research for a doctorate required me to submit an experimental design for my research. I have tutor students in statistics and taught course such as simulation and operations research that requires a background in statistics.

Study Skills

I have taught in middle school, high school and college. I have degrees in education, engineering, and business. On several occasions I have increased a student's grade in a course by two levels with minimum guidance with students that are motivated to improve. I have worked in the education field in universities, at the Department of Justice, and in the Navy. I have also successfully tutored students on how to study to pass specific test and courses.
