About this tutor

I am a professional computer software engineer for over 25 years with a BS and MS degress in electrical engineering with a minor in Mathematics.  I have an extensive mathematics background and math has always been my passion and tutoring is a rewarding way where I can help others learn.  I enjoy teaching others and feel I can offer an effective way to pick up math concepts from simple math to compex calculus which students may not find obvious from normal classroom teaching.  My hours are flexible and live in central Massachusetts and I am very patient.  I look forward to helping you achieve your goals of learn via tutoring.

FAQs


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

I introduce myself and ask the student what course they are currently taking and what areas they feel they would like some assistance with.  If there are any prior quizes, homeworks or tests, I will briefly review the questions that the student answered incorrectly to and ask them why them think the answer was wrong.  We will go through the solution to these problems prior to studying new topics.


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

I have a bacholors and masters degree in computer and electrical engineering from WPI.  In high school I was an advanced math student that skipped two grades of calculus.  I currently work for Dell as a principal software engineer. 


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

My rate is $40 per session.


How did you get started teaching?

I enjoyed teaching subjects to my son and enjoy helping others learn which is what started my desire to teach.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I volunteered at the local elementary school to tutor some 6th grade children before school that were struggling in math.  I was able to reach the kids and explain the topics in a slightly different way than their teacher did, and they all understood the math concepts and scored highly on their next quiz.  It was rewarding to me to see the children "get it".


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

It is important for a student to decide where they would like to be tutored - at their home, in a public place, and a teacher's home, etc, and a candidate meeting those needs is a first decision that should be made.  Obviously a tutor's qualifications should be reviewed to verify that the instructor is qualified to teach the subject of interest.  Once a instructor is chosen, I believe that after the first session, the studen will have a good feel for the instructor's personality and teaching style.  If the student has concerns about either of those, I recommend to continue looking for an instructor that meets the student's expectations.


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

Why am I hiring a tutor? 

What subject areas am I struggling with? 

Have I been putting in enough time studying?
