Experienced, Highly Qualified Math Tutor and Music Teacher Available (and other subjects)! My Wednesday availability is for the area around Maryvale and south Glendale. I could add some time on Sunday if necessary. Other days would be for areas more to the East. My approach in my lessons is to identify and correct whatever weakness prevents you from progressing. Math got you down? It can be easier than you think! My knowledge of math has greatly increased my income. It can increase your income, too! Don't get stuck earning minimum wage. I am a highly qualified, experienced teacher and have been tutoring people since 1975. I passed the state AEPA Area 10 test and am highly qualified to teach secondary mathematics. I even help students who are home-schooled! I am also an experienced student with seven college degrees, including a B.A.! I used my Data Processing degree to write some math drill computer programs to help students with basic math skills. Students can access them on my laptop computer! I have worked as a chess coach and have a little time available around my current work schedule. Contact me for tutoring: math, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, test preparation (math portions of AIMS, ACT, SAT, ASVAB, GED, GRE, GMAT, etc.), physics, electronics, computers (software, hardware), music (theory, aural perception, guitar, piano, singing, winds), Spanish, economics, investments, business, and chess. Also: Music Lessons in Your Home on Your Instrument! Music lessons (appreciation/history, theory, aural perception, songleading, guitar, piano, singing, winds) by a professional singer. I use the first lesson to learn about the student's background, current level, and direction of interest. There may be some general instruction. Beginning with the second lesson, instruction is more personalized to the student's individual needs. Personal information: Until 2013, my primary source of income since 1992 was education. I have been to Europe five times, México twice, coast-to-coast in the U.S., and to Hawaii twice (Now I have been to every southern state except Florida!).

Experienced teacher of Test Prep available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills. I typically use books, and also have the tools available to use during lessons.
I have earned my BA and an MA in education which allows me a deeper understanding of not only how to teach, but how to learn. I want to pass on this knowledge to you or your child. I have spent my life developing good study skills and have used them successfully at all levels of my education as an international baccalaureate and AP student and as an undergraduate and graduate student. I have also taught international students the skills necessary to succeed in a college environment in English for academic preparedness classes which not only teach the language but the culture of the university. IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)
Dr. D. B.
I provide assistance in curriculum instruction, conducting discussion groups, and clarifying course content. I train students in developing effective writing and library research skills. I have extensive counseling of students to help them establish goals, identify options, and determine plans for action in reference to their studies. I hold a Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction.
Throughout my tutoring experience, I have helped all my students with increasing their test scores and mastering the subjects being tested. I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization. I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy! I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.
