Qualifications & Experience

For 30+ years, I have tutored and coached students from middle school to college in Physics and various Math (Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, and Calculus.).

For 8 years, I trained tutors professionally for nonprofit certification organization. My teaching philosophy is simple - helps students identify, learn, and master basic skills. Over my career of helping different students, I understand how to engage students and enable them to express clear, precise, and consistent thoughts. Clear talking leads to clear thinking and clear thinking leads to improved virtual learning. (Online rate is $25))

I believe without these learn-able communication skills students fail to perform on assessments. Moreover, these skills are transferable to other STEM and non-STEM classes and life learning too.
