FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Before our first session I will contact you to determine specific topics and/or improvement areas.  I will prepare for our first session using these inputs.  At the end of our first session I will determine level of progress made and create a plan for future sessions.  After our first meeting I will ask for your review and feedback in order to improve and prepare for follow-up sessions.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

My college education and 30-years flying aircraft in the Air Force provided me with extensive and practical math and science skills.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge by the hour.  My fee is $40.00 per hour.  I have a one-hour minimum charge.  For partial-hour sessions over one-hour I will charge $10 per 15-minute time period.  For example.  A one-hour 45-minute session will cost $70 ($40 + $30).  I accept PayPal, credit card, personal check or cash.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching when I became an instructor in the U.S. Air Force more than 30 years ago.


What types of students have you worked with?

When I was a substitute teacher in New York, I worked with students of all ages and backgrounds...from 7th grade through 12th grade.   In the Air Force, I worked with recent high school and college graduates.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The birth of our granddaughter nearly two years ago.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Hire a teacher who is sincerely interested in helping you improve.  Try to find a teacher who believes: "It's about you (the student)...it's not about the teacher."  To help do this, I suggest asking the prospective teacher how they measure progress.  Do they attempt to measure progress immediately (during the first meeting)?  A teacher who feels strongly about your success will not leave the first meeting without determining if any progress has been made.  Hire a teacher who has a solid plan for measuring progress.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

A student should be as specific as possible when asking for help.  Before the first meeting, students should ask themselves..."What will I say when the teacher asks me what I need help with?" 

Another question some students should ask themselves:  "Do I have strong studying techniques and habits that will keep me on track after our tutoring sessions are complete?"   If the answer is "No" then maybe you should ask the tutor to help you improve  self-study skills.
