I recently (semi-)retired from the I.T. industry after 40+ years - the last 20 years or so I have been in consulting work. I have always enjoyed teaching/tutoring and looked forward to working with junior engineers to get them "up to speed". Now, I am looking forward to making tutoring part of my daily routine.

Back in the day, I was an undergrad at Harvey Mudd College (Claremont, CA). and grad student at UC Berkeley. Fast forward 40+ years and my wife and I are living in Maple Grove MN (20 miles NW of Minneapolis). In addition to tutoring and working some part time consulting gigs, I love spending time with my 2 grandkids, and my three grown kids.

As an undergraduate student, I tutored engineering and math courses in walk-in 'help' sessions. My subjects were math (calculus I and II, and systems engineering.) As a graduate student, I taught computer programming for peers in my graduate program. The purpose was to share knowledge with my peers so that they could complete computer programming assignments as required in their class work. At the graduate level, I also worked with my Professor in designing and implementing statistically based choice modeling programs using complex mathematical algorithms.

Professionally I have mentored numerous entry level engineers in both hard and soft work skills to succeed on their job. The mentoring was primarily technology related (computer science and math topics), but frequently communication skills were discussed, which are so important on the job. I learned a lot about tutoring through the opportunity to mentor over 40 years of professionalwork. This was something I truly enjoyed, and was instrumental in my decision to tutor after I retired from full time work.

I have a special love of mathematics and continue to teach myself advanced topics to this day. I am still proud of placing 3rd in the State of Arizona math challenge for high school juniors - and "math is fun" has been part of my life ever since. One of my greatest thrills was working with my son through his high school years to prepare him for advanced placement as a math major in his undergraduate work. In the meantime, I keep fresh on my math skills by working problems - including trig and calculus- on a weekly basis. (And YES!, it is for fun too).

I look forward to sharing my love of learning with my students!
