Jerry has a strong background in mathematics, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, statistics. He looks forward to working with students who are into the basics of mathematics. In many of his employment, he became known for applying math solutions intended for particular subjects to unrelated ones. For example, in obtaining his MBA he became exposed to forecasting economics data like GNP and stock prices. He applied the same concepts to solving problems related to rocket engines. Another time he applied computers (then new) to helping his company securely negotiate a contract with the Russian government.
Jerry has worked with young people a great deal, including interviewing for admissions to college, advising the high school Key Club, and is a member of a Toastmasters Club that is composed of younger professionals. He has a strong background in math and physical sciences, and enjoys teaching. He once taught a course in management science along with a young instructor working on his masters in math. Upon completion of the course, the younger instructor complemented Jerry on explaining why the math worked; the younger man said he knew how to manipulate the formulas, but had never really understood why they worked until he learned it from Jerry. Jerry’s skills include leadership, writing, speaking, knowledge of computers, engineering, and law. He has led a variety of community activities, and solved many business problems.

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.
