I used my 25-years as an engineer to create unique and different ways to solve Algebra 1 and 2 problems when I taught at St. Michaels Catholic Academy for nine years and nine years tutoring various ma

Methodology

When I first meet a new student, I go over several ground rules which are designed to allow free communication between the two of us. Examples include: "If I go too fast, let me know; if I go too slow, let me know. If you have a question, go ahead and interrupt me."

Over the years of one -on-one tutoring, I do my best to find out the student's learning style. This may take a couple of lessons to make that determination. Then I use that in all future lessons.

Then I do my best to make our lessons as much fun as possible. Why? Because I learned students learn easier and fast in a more relaxed session.

Background

I taught other engineers during my 25-year career. During that time, l also taught three one- and two-day adult short courses, both nationally and internationally. I taught high school for nine years and have tutored for nine years to over 1000 students.

Several of my high school students now work in a variety of positions here in Austin. One attended the Air Force Academy and now flies jet planes; and another joined West Point and is now an Army Ranger.

• Adults in writing, editing, and other subjects

St. Michael’s Catholic Academy: 2001-2010

• Taught: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 2, Pre-AP Algebra 2, and AP Statistics Philosphy
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
