After graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Electrical Design Engineering, I worked for ten years as an R&D engineer in a large computer company that now goes by the name of Unisys. While there I was awarded a US Patent for one of my designs. I also taught math at Philadelphia Community College. Eventually I migrated to sales and marketing computer systems products for companies like Okidata, Panasonic and TDK Electronics. More recently I found that I enjoyed teaching math so I joined Kumon Learning Centers as a part time math instructor for three years and now Im at Varsity Tutors. I like the one on one approach, the great online platform and learning tools.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

When I begin tutoring a new student, I like to start from a point where student feels comfortable and confident in the material. This helps me to understand if there are any missing or lack of understanding of important concepts. After establishing this, the student and I will move forward at whatever pace is comfortable for the student to achieve their goal. I try to keep students engaged by asking them questions that help them solve the problem. I try to keep the explanations simple, with visuals if possible, and make math fun.
