About this tutor

Enthusiastic Tutor looking for students who need extra assistance. 

I will do my very best to help the student achieve his or her goals.

Whether those goals are to get a passing grade or to get an A in the class or to prepare for the next class.

My teaching experience includes Adjunct Instructor in Math at a Community College. I taught remedial Math to help prepare students to take college level Math classes. 

I work as a volunteer tutor in Math for the Somerset County volunteer services where I teach several students from 5th grade level Math to the high school level classes. I also tutor college level Math classes.

I have also taught several classes in computers and physics.

My education includes a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology. 

In addition to the Math requirements for a Mechanical Engineer I have 15 additional credits in Mathematics. 

I have also completed the class “An Introduction to the Teaching Profession.” This is needed to become a certified High School Math Teacher.

I can offer help in any Math from 5th grade through college level. I am willing to work with individual or with small groups. I will make every effort to insure that my students accomplish their goals. 

I listen carefully to my students to understand their individual issues and goals. 

I adjust the lessons to these goals whether these goals are to pass the next test or this class or if the student needs a strong understanding in Math to pursue more advanced classes. 

I know that all people do not learn the same way. If one approach does not work with a student then 

I will find other approaches until we find one that works.

I find in many cases when a student is having a problem with Math one of the issues is neatness and organization. 

I have a lot of experience and I have been successful in helping students with this type of issue.

I have recently retired and this allows me an open and very adjustable schedule and I can also be flexible with my rates.

I like Math and I do enjoy getting others to understand Math.

FAQs


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

Enthusiastic tutor looking for students who need extra assistance.

I am willing to work with individuals or small groups.

I listen carefully to my students to understand their individual issues and goals.

I adjust the lessons to these goals. I know that all people do not learn in the same way;

If one approach does not work with a student then I will find other approaches until we find one that works for the student. I work patiently with my students.  If after I have explained a particular concept and it is still not clear I will explain it again.  If it is still not clear I will find a different way to explain it until it becomes clear. 

I stress the idea that math is not like other subjects. And that you need to understand the lessons of today or you will not be able to follow tomorrow’s lesson.  A strong foundation is essential. I will adjust the lessons to the student's long term or short term goals.


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

I have a Bachelors Degree in Engineering.  In addition to the required math courses for a degree in mechanical engineering I have 18 additional credits in math at both the undergraduate and graduate level. My degree in Engineering allows me to show my students some of the practical applications of Math.


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

I do not have a standard price.  It depends on the level of the Math and location of the student.  


How did you get started teaching?

I taught Remedial Math at Community Colleges to prepare students for college level math classes


What types of students have you worked with?

Anyone over the age of 10
