...I show them how to convert between degrees and radians, how to find various trig and inverse trig functions and how to relate their studies to the real world. Since I have been working with college level trig students for several years, I have a rich, deep understanding of the subject. Much of my engineering background involved trig also.

...I have a passion for Physics. Everything around us can somehow traced back to the laws of Physics, which I think is very fascinating. I have tutored Physics for over 10 years and believe my success with students comes from being able to relate physics concepts to day to day experiences and examples.

...Berea has a work-study program which requires all students to work a number of hours throughout the week. During my time at Berea, I worked as a Teaching Assistant (tutor) in the Physics Department for at least ten hours each week. I have also held a secondary position in the Math Department where I tutored in subjects ranging from Developmental Math courses to Differential Equations.

...I often see a glazed look come over my students' faces when I mention synthetic division or conic sections for the first time. Advanced algebra always seems complicated to the uninitiated. I know how to help them see that polynomials are just the next step after quadratics and that sequences are just special kinds of lists.

I have a BS and MS in Physics from Georgia Tech and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University. I worked for 30+ years as an applied mathematician for Westinghouse in Pittsburgh. During that time I also taught as an adjunct professor at CMU and at Duquesne University in the Mathematics Departments.
