...As my students have found out, I am friendly, have great patience, good at making difficult subjects understandable and hard-to-remember equations memorable. I can make seemingly dull math/science subjects interesting, so my sessions are always interesting to my students. I highly customize to the specific needs, learning styles, and personalities of my students.

...I wrote "Handbook for Centrifuge Designers" while at Beckman Instruments in Palo Alto, California. It is critical, before going into pre-algebra, that students have a firm command of arithmetic. My experience is that many such students have troubles adding and subtracting fractions, and my first task with such students is to make sure that they have mastery of that kind of calculation.

...My style of teaching is to break a problem into smaller parts. I explain each of these smaller parts by teaching a lesson of a particular problem. I will check for understanding as I explain these smaller parts.

...Pre-Calculus is bridge between algebra and Calculus. It is stepping stone to prepare for Calculus. Trigonometry plays an important role in Pre-Calculus.

...Other areas that I address are test taking skills and better studying skills. There are many different methods learned in Algebra 1. Most students, that I tutor in upper level math, do not have good understanding of these methods, so I invariably end up teaching them Algebra 1 material from the beginning.
