I bring out hands-on materials when a student needs help visualizing and making abstract concepts more concrete. I ask questions to encourage new ideas and involved learning. (read more)
...In other words, one begins to finally understand, fundamentally, why the natural world is described mathematically, and not some other way. The techniques of both Calculus and Linear Algebra are brought to bear on problems of dynamics -- that is how things move and change with respect to one another. I matriculated into the Doctoral Program in Mathematics at University of Illinois. (read more)
...I can teach: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Please contact me for additional information and to schedule a tutoring session.I have been teaching Algebra 1 at the college level for over 25 years. I have extensive experience in helping students to understand factoring of polynomials and exhibit patience in teaching techniques to handle word problems. (read more)
