Introductory Overview for Mentors|
College Bound volunteer mentors undertake to "strengthen the
student's math, language arts, and social skills while preparing them
for the college journey." That's a pretty tall order. To support the
math component of that responsibility, this webpage has links
(below, left) to some math
resources that I've created explicitly for College Bound.
Please click those links and read those pages. It won't take long.
- Henry, in person - and I'm a volunteer like you. Don't hesitate to get
in touch with me for anything having to do with math, especially as it

applications for decades (http://cs.gmu.edu/~henryh), but more relevantly
I've been tutoring at College Bound since the spring of 2010.
In 2014, Jim Price joined me at MathLab. He's a mechanical
engineer (B.S. and M.S.) who knows his math and puts it to good use,

In the fall of 2015, Marsh McJunkin is already at work in
MathLab. In fact yesterday, Sept. 28, we had a successful evening for
7 students. Marsh has MS degrees in both math and computer science
and has taught both of those subjects, working in high school and
