Teacher/Tutor

I offer tutoring services in the following areas

  • High-School Math (including calculus)
  • Middle-School Math
  • Statistics
  • Computer programming
  • U.S. History

Currently, I am a Supplemental Instruction Leader* at ACC in the Departments of Mathematics and Mathematical Development.

For nine years I was an adjunct faculty member at the Austin Community College (ACC). For the first three years I taught in the Computer Science department and I taught Introduction to Programming using C++, Introduction to Computers which was a general survey course of modern computers, hardware and software. and a course in Oracle's PL/SQ>.

For the next six years I taught U.S. History, both first semester (through Reconstruction) and second semester (from Reconstruction). I created my own slides and my own curriculum and tests.


* Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support model that uses peer-assisted study sessions to improve student success in courses that historically have proven difficult for students.


If you are looking for a history, math, or computer science tutor contact me via email.

"Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Yet those who do study history are doomed to stand by helplessly while everyone else repeats it."
