I will come to your home to tutor with the stipulation that there is a parent or other responsible adult present in the house.
I often work with gifted children who need to be challenged. A teacher of a large class often has very little time to keep such a child interested. I can provide the extra stimulation that is required.
I also work with children with learning challenges. I engage these students in real-life situations to make them understand the material better and to ask them questions in areas in which they have interest.
I have tutored public and private school students, as well as home school students in mathematics through Pre-Calculus, as well as History. I assist students with homework and test preparation, and introduce them to what comes next in the curriculum. This makes it easier for the student to comprehend the material once the teacher introduces the new subject.
Also, I tutor preparations for SAT subject tests in mathematics as well as the overall ACT and SAT tests (including English, Critical Reading, Writing and Vocabulary), as well as Science, AP World History and AP European History.
During the last seven years I have been tutoring grades 4 - 12 students (in public, private and home schools) in the above subjects. I also worked as a high school teacher for two years early in my career so I have nine years of experience.
I retired seven years ago from a career in engineering as well as teaching engineering topics in seminars and lectures world-wide, including their underlying mathematical concepts. My work for a large number of years was focused on engineering cell phone and satellite telecommunications networks worldwide. I worked in Eastern Europe, West Africa, India, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.
My degrees: I have two Masters Degrees: one in Electrical Engineering (KTH, Stockholm, Sweden) and one in Business Administration (University of Santa Clara).
I am willing to travel to the homes of students in the Peninsula area of the San Francisco Bay Area (Hillsborough through Santa Clara) as well as the southern portion of the East Bay.
I enjoy tutoring -- the challenge of teaching and training for tests.
