A+ Tutoring Minnesota Inc.
I have over 25 years solving math and engineering problems and I have that many years as a math and chemistry teacher/tutor.
I really enjoy teaching my students math skills and "math Tricks." It is great to see their improvement and confidence grow over time.
I have a B.S. in Extractive Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a Master's Degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University (IL). In the private sector I was involved in developing several medical devices for coronary balloon angioplasty (coronary artery pain relief) and was a co-inventor in the medical and concrete material industries.
