"Hello there, I am an aerospace-industry mathematician and an experienced tutor with a 5-star WyzAnt rating. I can help you! ............ I have 12 years (and counting) of experience in the aerospace industry (I can give specifics when you contact me, but for operational security reasons I do not give details in online posts). My job involves extensive use of advanced math and computer programming. ............ I have an MA in applied math from CSUF and a BA in math (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) from USC. I am continuing my math education even today via a class at my job site. I still know what it's like to struggle with new concepts! ............ I have tutored many age levels, subjects, and in different settings: K-College; Sylvan, Kumon, the Supplemental Instruction program at USC, and a pro bono community center; friends, coworkers, and relatives; math (up to calculus), reading, writing, Spanish, etc. ............ Everybody sees the world from a different perspective. I will find the illustration that makes the concept click for you! I have used physical blocks, ninja star word problems, and whatever else was needed to get the idea across. ............ My most recent tutoring has been through WyzAnt. We don't have to use WyzAnt, but we can if you want. You decide! I can send you the link to my WyzAnt profile once you contact me. You will see that I have a 5 star rating and a clean background check :-) You will also see that my profile says I am not accepting new students...don't worry, I only put that because WyzAnt takes a large cut of my hourly rate when I find students using their website. You will also see I charge $50 an hour on WyzAnt, but actually, I will only charge you $40 an hour, even if we use WyzAnt. ............ I am also a skilled communicator. I have written key portions of winning business proposals, prepared and presented many briefings to the customer, and scored a 770 out of 800 on the verbal section of the SAT. ............ I was also inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and Alpha Lambda Delta honor societies, and I am an Eagle Scout. ............ You can do some truly amazing things with math. The first hour is free, so let's get started!" less...
