About this pro
TUTORING PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH: I focus on understanding of the concepts and developing the student's ability to solve problems -- rather than tedious drill and temporary memorization. EXCELLENCE: 1. I get results! (Demonstrated improvement: passing courses, raising grades, better test scores, etc.) 2. Knack for establishing good rapport with each student. 3. Focus on understanding concepts, developing skills & strategies to solve problems. 4. Also, my ability to make things understandable, in writing and in discussion.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After spending many years in research and industry, as an engineer and manager, (often running employee training programs, plus part-time college teaching), I finally discovered that I have a special knack for tutoring -- especially when the student is "lost" because of poor teachers, who fail to explain the underlying concepts.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Find the best (not the cheapest). Read the feedback from previous students and parents. Also, make sure it is someone you feel comfortable working with. Invest in your future!
