"My name is Chuck. I'm 33 years old, I have a B.S. in computer science and a minor in math from North Carolina State University.

Back when I was a college student, I planned and delivered lessons in front of a class, held office hours, and worked with students one-on-one for a programming class. When I was in high school, I tutored my peers in algebra, algebra II, pre-calculus, and calculus. I enjoyed both settings - I liked the classroom because I got to play with technology, and I actually like public speaking and making PowerPoint presentations; I liked working one-on-one with students during my office hours because I got to know some of them as friends (at the time, they were also my peers - I was a sophomore teaching classes with freshmen through seniors) and I was able to go into more details than I ever could in a 30-minute lecture in front of a class. If there was anything they didn't understand, I could dedicate some time to focus on them, and I was always happy to make time outside of scheduled hours to help people.

In high school, I also tutored my peers one-on-one in algebra, algebra II, pre-calculus, and calculus for service hours. Then, now, and always, I've found math to be interesting and fun, and I hope to bring that to you as well!

Three times, I scored an 800 on the math section on the SAT way back during the Civil War (just kidding...it was in 2003, but it was back when a perfect score was only 1600 points). I also scored an 800 on the SAT II in math and another 800 in physics. From middle school until late in college, I was active in math competitions, representing the state of North Carolina in national-level competitions in Mathcounts and the American Regions Math League. More recently, I took the Praxis II exam as part of an effort to go back to school to get a teaching certificate, and scored a 195 out of 200, s" less...
