"TUTORING PHILOSOPHY

Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Catholic Academy, I have found that each student, regardless of age (middle school, high school or even post-secondary) is a unique person who has their own learning style. The key to successful learning via tutoring is to identify that style and use it motivate the student to gain knowledge.

There are two major components to my teaching style: whenever possible:

1. provide more than one way to solve a problem; and

2. use real-world examples to make visual connections to math problems

Bottom line: these thoughts should enable us to have fun while working together. I expect nothing less.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

After graduating from UT, I was a process engineer in the semiconductor manufacturing industry for 15 years. I was fortunate enough to travel the world while working for companies such as Motorola, Applied Materials, and Varian Associates. For another 10 years, I was a consultant, trainer, and book publisher.

I then took the opportunity to become a teacher at a private school here in Austin for nine years, where I taught Pre-algebra, Algebra 2, Pre-AP Algebra 2, and AP Statistics. During my tenure, I went to Graduate School at Texas State University (San Marcos) and obtained my Texas Teaching Certificate and an M.A. in Education.
