Rather than a bunch of formulas, I present one concept with several applications. I make presentations that are energetic and animated. I involve the student by giving the first steps, then let them make the conclusion. Examples are available.
I've successfully taught and tutored Math at middle school, high school, and college. I've taught Arithmetic to Calculus as well as sciences up to Chemistry and Physics. I've developed several improvements over traditional presentations. Student comments are available upon request.

Built three websites. Success in working for the Federal Government. Served in US Navy from 1978-1984.

Eastern Florida State College Adjunct Math Instructor Employed: 08/2001 – 12/2002
I taught Intro Algebra Prep (MATV-0024), which is a math class for students lacking the skills to begin college level math courses. In my class, each student had to pass a chapter test before beginning the next chapter. Those that kept up were able to take the State Exit exam, which determined if they would pass the course. Prior to my final semester, I became dissatisfied with the organization of the text, so I rewrote the homework problems, made chapter and section outlines, and wrote homework solution guides. I began the course by teaching fractions and other basic concepts; I used those lessons to teach more advanced concepts later in the semester. As a result, 52 of my students took the exit exam in the fall of 2002 and all of them passed. I earned the position because of my previous success working at the college as a Math and Science Tutor beginning in 1991.
