I offer one-on-one tutoring and homework help, and have taught the following curriculums: Machine Science (robotics) and IMP (alternative math).

Machine Science Robotics

Machine Science offers unique robotics and electronics kits for learners of all ages. Combined with extensive documentation, on-line resources, and other educational materials, these guided projects are suitable for use at home, in the classroom, or as after-school activities.

IMP – Integrated Mathematics Program

IMP is an alternative math program for high school students, which includes group work, presentation skills, explaining your reasoning, and exploring math concepts in real world situations.

The IMP curriculum integrates traditional material with additional topics recommended by the NCTM Standards, such as statistics, probability, curve fitting, and matrix algebra.
