"Everyone learns in different ways and I have belief in addition to the subject material, developing learning methods, i.e. how to learn, is extremely important to achieving success.

In high school and college, I was a very good student in most of my subjects, but not all of them. I graduated in the top 10% of my high school class while focusing on math and drafting and received the best bookkeeper award in accounting. My associate’s degree is in Drafting and Design Technology focusing on Engineering and Math skills. As an undergraduate, I focused on Applied Math / Computer Science, which I continue to pursue even after a family and long career in Hardware and Software Engineering, and Software Product Management. Most recently, I was a project manager and business analyst in IT and Internet business and received my Project Management Professional (PMP). Understanding our strengths and weaknesses allow us to adjust our approach to learning. Learning is more than memorizing facts. It is applying that knowledge where we realize we have achieved success.

At this time, I specialize in Geometry, Algebra, HTML, and JavaScript. My goals are to determine the best methods of learning so that the student achieves their goals.

I have spent my life learning and sharing what I learn with others. As examples, over the years, I have taught swimming to 3-5 year olds for 2 years as volunteer parent instructor and cooking, sewing, and knitting, to 2 homeschooled girls, ages 8 and 10. As part of my responsibilities as software engineer, I have taught CAD/CAM (Unigraphics) to over 100 engineers, draftsmen, and machinists. As a consultant, I have taught HTML, JavaScript, Adobe Flash, ActionScript, Web Design and Internet Business to graphic artists and web designers. Most recently, I mentored a Project Management Professional (PMP) Study Group for professional adults preparing for certification.

What I believe the keys to success are include using the right tools, having the right mindset, and using study techniques such as outlining, focusing on key concepts, and working on problems. I also believe that Mind Mapping is crucial to understand, review, and recall material, Project Based Learning which uses real examples and a hands on approach aids in the understanding and retention of new material, and the Pomodoro Method of learning in several shorter bursts is a better way to lay a solid foundation for understanding and applying new concepts.

I pride myself in the work that I do and I will help determine what works for you. I expect that a student is mindful and respectful. We will work together so I will look for feedback from student and parents. I have a 4-hour cancellation policy; however 24-hour notice is better. We will determine the best study space and times to study. I will travel within a radius to another location if that is more convenient. I will never bill for a lesson that a student or parent is not completely satisfied.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me help you become successful in reaching your study goals." less...
