Free Math Tutoring

MC 007This is a picture taken at the Math Club that I ran for 15 years

I have been tutoring math for the last fifty years on and off. I have written my own math materials. All of that and other reference material, which I like, is available on this blog. See Maths Index,

I have decided to tutor mathematics for free as I am now approaching retirement. At the moment I am consulting  part time as an engineer, I shall be tutoring at the locations I visit frequently. These locations are the local Library, the local Starbucks, and the local Barnes & Nobles.

The reasoning behind free math tutoring is the same as the reasoning that underlies the research I have been doing into KHTK (mindfulness).

I feel secure to the degree the environment around me is capable of mindfulness.The knowledge of math and science definitely contributes to mindfulness.

Today, I shall be conducting my first free math tutoring session under this program. How many students I am able to tutor shall depend on the time available to me. In the future, I may extend this offer on Skype.

Normally, I shall be tutoring a student once a week for three free sessions. After three sessions I may continue with the same student, or move to another student. This offer is based on first come first served.

This is an ambitious experiment.  This may include tutoring some students to become math tutors. I am excitedly looking forward to its results.

MC 001The Math Club… a busy place!

    Vin: “I feel more secure to the degree the environment around me is capable of mindfulness. The knowledge of math and science definitely contributes to mindfulness.”

    I largely agree with your viewpoint.

    Your students will be very lucky to have the opportunity to be tutored by you.

    Thank you, 2ndxmr. I am sure I can say the same if you decide to tutor.

    Vin: “I feel secure to the degree the environment around me is capable of mindfulness.The knowledge of math and science definitely contributes to mindfulness.”

    Chris: This is a great idea that I will attempt to join in and benefit from and contribute to in some way. My own experience with word clearing showed me that much of human abstract understanding is encapsulated within the meaning of words and that when a person understands better, they seem to behave more rationally. Well, maths are words that I am finally beginning to understand encapsulate and can show the precise relationships between objects. I feel very drawn to continue my education and word clearing on this vector.

      Chris, you have been missing for a while on this blog. What up!

      As a follow up to this OP I am currently writing a PROJECT RECOVER AMERICA. It put forths the basic idea of bypassing the “government” and starting a revolution to increase productivity.

      The solution is simple and very doable. Every person has a skill that he can impart to another person. Let’s start a grass roots tutoring movement.

      By helping others learn, one, himself or herself, learns too. It is a win-win situation.

        haha yes, I have been missing and for the past two weeks backpacking, camping and elk hunting in the Rockies. But I am home now.

          I hope you had a good diversion, and your fill.

          Thank you. It is so restful to unhook from mass communication even for a few days and commune with Nature up close and personal. We camped above 10,000 ft and hiked miles per day. Each day’s weather was tumultuous with alternating rain, sunshine, and even thunderstorms with snow. Very restful.

          I bet!
