Teaching since:
1965

I tutor beginning French, high school and college physics, and mathematics from basic arithmetic through calculus. I home-schooled my own kids—two daughters who are now straight-A students at university, including mathematics.

I first began teaching French in 1965 when I was a 3rd year high school French student, helping other students who were struggling to learn the language. Everyone whom I helped showed great improvement in their comprehension.

I'm a retired physicist and engineer who worked as the senior scientist for a consulting engineering firm. Over the years I have helped many students who were having difficulty with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, as well as physics.

I remember what it was like to feel lost and intimidated by math problems that looked difficult. Geometry was easy for me, but algebra was a struggle, until I figured out a fundamental approach that simplified everything. In turn, that approach made it much easier to understand trigonometry.

Similarly, I had a difficult time with high school calculus until I took physics. Once I saw that there was a practical use for the mathematics, it all became clear.

I know what my stumbling blocks were, and how I got past them. That's why I believe I can help anyone who's having a tough time with mathematics, at any level.

Experience

Private Tutoring
Jan 1965 - Jul 2019
Not Applicable

I have been doing private tutoring in French since 1965, and in mathematics since 1983. I also home-schooled my children in mathematics (arithmetic, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus) from 1994 through 2012, and have provided supplementary math tutoring as needed while they attend college.
