I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Statistics from Lehigh University and have tutored algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, number theory and other courses at the high school and college level since 2000. My love of sports began in 1977 when I started playing baseball, which I played through high school and a couple of seasons in a 30 and over league. In addition to baseball, I have enjoyed basketball at a competitive level and enjoy football and golf. I'm an avid follower of all Philadelphia major sports teams.
