About JERRY
After retiring from UIC my next urge was to pass the accumulated mathematical knowledge to students (I did teach there, but I spent most of my time in R&D). Sixteen years ago, I started to teach math parttime at several universities in the Chicago area. Often I had to find my own approach which might give me an edge over just blindly following the textbooks. It helped me to understand the value  or the lack of it  of different mathematical methods, regardless of how they were selected or presented in textbooks. Occasionally, I may come with alternative solutions that are not taught in school but may be easier for the student. Sometimes students have difficulties with elemental mathematical concepts. I am well aware of these problems  and found that there is no problem too low to teach. Over the decades I have also collected a bag of "tricks" that make some solutions easier and straightforward (as one of my professor told us: "Every good mathematician is lazy!") and I share them with my students. For example, I show students how to verify fast their results in calculus by using the latest AI based web software.
Last but not the least, the latest findings in the psychology of learning show that good oneonone teaching moves up the student’s performance by more than 1.5 standard deviation, i.e., a student in the lowest 6% of the class tends to move above the average, and an average student into top 6% of the class. What more can I say?

I am a retired applied mathematician with PhD in physics. During 30 years in R&D I have contributed in many fields, including meteorology, medicine, oil drilling exploration and applications of AI in industry, doing the real life math. Often I had to find my own approach which might give me an edge over just blindly following the textbooks. It helped me to understand the value  or the lack of it  of different mathematical methods, regardless of how they were selected or presented in textbooks. Occasionally, I may come with alternative solutions that are not taught in school but may be easier for the student. I tailor my tutoring to each individual student.Consequently, I know alternative approaches when a student develops a mental block to some textbook methods. When I tutor, I do not only teach how to solve the problem, I learn, too: I learn how the student thinks, so I can choose the best way to explain the problem and to select the way to solve it.There is hardly a greater reward than seeing that sudden Archimedean "EUREKA" flash in the eyes of your student when everything has become clear and understood.
