Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I have a Bachelors degree and two Masters degrees in Mathematics from the United States Naval Academy, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Georgia. All of my degrees were earned with at least a 3.9 GPA and I earned the honor of being named the top math major from my undergraduate institution when I graduated. I have also had the pleasure of teaching mathematics at two different colleges and started tutoring math and physics over 20 years ago. Please allow me to accompany you on the exciting journey of exploration into math and physics!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that it is crucial for a good tutor to be proficient in his subject. A tutor who muddles through material and solutions to problems can do more harm than good to his students. In addition to being knowledgeable in his subject, a good tutor is able to break a topic down into manageable pieces. I believe that a good tutor must genuinely care about his students and be willing to invest not only time, but also emotional energy into his students. A good tutor must earnestly want his students to learn and succeed. A good tutor is also patient, and understands that learning is an iterative process that takes considerable effort on both the part of the student and the teacher. A good tutor must understand that learning math can be difficult and challenging, but this is also what can be satisfying about studying it.
