A really cool and nice former professional actor tutors all levels of math!
I graduated from college with two undergrad degrees: one in Mathematics and the other in Computer Information Systems. I know - the first though "what a geek". But I swear there was nothing else to do at Northland College (located in Ashland, Wisconsin, population: 8,000) where my alma mater still proudly stands.
That is where and why my tutoring career took off. My freshman year I suddenly realized that, besides understanding math, I had a gift of "transferring" that knowledge to my peers. My gift was soon recognized by the school as they employed me and gave me the title of Tutor/Student Advisor. Needless to say - from then on school was free and my friends started scoring in the 90th percentile.
After four years of extensive tutoring (I worked overtime because people liked me more than other tutors), I was off to Syracuse University for grad school. Guess, what - they too recognized my talent and I got a "full ride" as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. At Syracuse I didn't teach much math (except for one Stats class) but mostly Computer classes. After getting my Master's degree in Computer Science, my students kept calling me for tutoring sessions and the word spread around and now I am doing this full-time.
I live for the "lightbulb" moment! There's no feeling better than seeing a student suddenly get it!
