Math prof gives math lessons to high school and college students in Chicagoland

Methodology


I'm a math instructor and author. I can help students in any math class in high school or college, including students in AP math classes, or preparing for ACT or SAT tests.
Since understanding is essential, I ask students questions to guide them to the answer.

Background

I have taught math, tutored math, or written math textbooks for at least 32 years. I've taught thousands of students. My math students (majors) have gone on for masters degrees in math and several other fields. Some are successful math teachers, too.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $3
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $144
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $282

Details

I do not make house calls but meet students only at public libraries.
Students in classes after Calculus are charged an additional $5 fee.
Meetings in Downers Grove, Naperville, Lisle, Bolingbrook or Darien will incur a $4 travel fee.
Meetings in Schaumburg, Elgin, Aurora, Joliet, or other northwest, west or southwest suburbs incur a travel fee of $8.
Meetings in Chicago proper, north suburbs, or south suburbs incur a travel fee of $12.
Meetings in Kenosha, Racine, Gary, or Hammond incur a travel fee of $16.
In each case, you must identify the specific public library you want to meet at.

Ronald's resume

I hold both a bachelors and a masters degree in math, as well as a doctorate in math education.
I've spent 17 years teaching math (at 8 colleges & 2 high schools). I've taught all the courses in a math major (including Discrete Math, Calculus, Numerical Methods, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra & Real Analysis). I also taught courses for general education requirements (College Algebra, Trig, Stats, Geometry, & Calculus) and non-credit courses to help students make up deficiencies (Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra).
Additionally, I spent 15 years writing math textbooks for junior high and high school students (Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Precalculus).
I have received 5 awards for my teaching based on student evaluations, too!
