Retired naval officer with MS in applied math offers math tutoring lessons in San Diego county.

Methodology

I use the Socratic method of teaching in the classroom. The majority of my students are taking high school or college mathematics courses. I place a lot of emphasis on guiding students to a correct solution by asking appropriate questions as the student attempts to solve a problem.

Background

Since retiring from the Navy, I have been an operations manager and program manager for a defense contractor and have held various sales and sales management positions in the financial services industry. Recently (2005- present), on a part-time basis, I have taught Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry, Calculus, Physics, and Differential Equations at Grossmont Community College and for Vincennes University. I also been an online instructor of Algebra at Ashford University. In addition, I have taught or currently teach AP Statistics, AP Calculus, Geometry, Pre-Algebra, and Biology at the Children's Creative and Performing Arts Academy in San Diego, CA.
