I don't teach rote methods. I find out how you think, and then we explore the concept. You will discover what you can do. So it's about you!
I like people. And it feels good to help.
There's a strange feeling of completion when I've helped a student to move from haziness to clarity. And there is a certain beauty in order, too!
His passion for math translates really well into the ability to teach and inspire a student.
We chat a little. Then we talk goals. I assure the student that I can help him to meet those goals. I tell some history to back up my claim.
Then we sit and try to solve some problems - preferrably those that have presented a challenge - and I help the student to see how his innate ability and knowledge to date are enough to make significant progress.
Three degrees in Engineering, including ...
... a Master's degree from GA Tech ...
... and 20 years' experience teaching (most at the college level) ...
... and a love for Mathematics!

A friend knew someone at a parochial school. The head of the Math department was suddenly grievously injured, and wasn't expected to recover. The principal offered me an emergency position as a "permanent substitute." I accepted the challenge.
Months later, the teacher returned, and chose to be my mentor, and thus to permit me to continue. A few months after finishing that school year, I got it in my head to apply to teach at a local vocational school. It was another campus of a school at which I had earned my first degree. They took a chance on me, and I didn't disappoint.
Now years later, having taught at a handful of local colleges and universities, I offer my experience and expertise to you, my new student!
All sorts, really. Capable, talented, challenged.
Because I don't teach rote methods, I can take on any student who wishes to learn. My goal is to teach my students to think. And since thinking is natural, it's just a matter of leadership. I clarify concepts, and I affirm students.
My recent GRE score:
Look for someone patient, insightful and flexible. It's the three things a textbook can't be.
Am I afraid?
Can I stretch beyond what's easy?
Am I willing to put in the time and effort necessary?
