I've always been gifted in Math. I learned in High School Geometry Class that I was also pretty good at explaining concepts to my fellow students. The next year, I started my tutoring career as a Junior in High School. I kept tutoring off and on through my days at UCSB, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematical Sciences. After UCSB, I attended the University of South Carolina where I was a Teaching Assistant in Calculus and worked in the tutorial center.
When I left South Carolina and returned to California, I started tutoring full time. I worked in the Moorpark College tutorial center as Senior Tutor where I both helped students with their work and taught other tutors how to teach, instead of giving answers.
Outside of Moorpark College, I helped individual students in their homes improve their Math and Science skills. After a couple of years of being a fulltime tutor, I decided to get a "real" job, as my parents called it. I applied to Microsoft and was hired. After working at Microsoft for a couple of years, I started volunteering at a High School in their math department, where I helped out for sixteen years. I also started taking 3-4 private tutoring students a year. All told, I have tutored full time or part time for over 25 years and 100s of students have achieved better math skills and grades through their own efforts with my help.
I am qualified in any level of math from 6th grade standard all the way up to differential equations. I also provide excellent SAT/ACT/GRE math coaching because I can provide techniques in determining what isn't the answer. Many years of experience, exceptional patience, and the ability to explain concepts in simple terms multiple different ways make me an excellent tutor.
