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. I've always been gifted in Math.

I charge the same amount whether I am tutoring one student or four students. When I run review sessions for entire classes the rate is cheaper per person, per hour.
I had difficulty understanding a new concept I learned in my C# class. After two days of struggling to figure it out, I contacted Chris who provided me with much needed insight. Chris answered all of the questions I had on this concept. His industry experience and recommendations were insightful and will allow me to apply what I've learned to future projects.
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.
My Algebra 2 qualifications include volunteering at a High School for 16 years, and effectively took every math class they offer. I have a Degree in Math and 30 years tutoring experience.
I worked for Microsoft for 19 years as a STE, SDET and Software Engineer. I worked on the C++ team at Microsoft. I've been writing shipping code in C# for over six years.
