About

My tutoring strategy involves a dialogue with my student. I encourage students to build their mathematical communication skills in order to engage more parts of the brain, leading to deeper learning. When students are asked to reflect and explain their work, they strengthen their understanding of the current material while building the skills and confidence to take on future challenges.

I enjoy helping students overcome the challenges of mathematics by cultivating a growth mindset. The way math is traditionally taught only reaches a small portion of students, and promotes a fixed mindset of being either "good" or "bad" at math. I aim to help everyone get better at math, because mathematical skills are something students develop over time, not something they inherently do or don't possess.

Helping students solve a specific type of question is rewarding, but when I can help a student build strong mathematical habits of mind and bolster their confidence with the subject as a whole, I feel I've truly done my job as a tutor.

Em C.

He was such a kind and knowledgeable tutor. Math has always been a hard subject for me and he was never judgements or talked down to me about it. He also did research about my learning disabilities and how to beat teach me. Gene is an amazing tutor! You would be very lucky to have him! I couldn’t have passed my test without him.
