Since 2001, I have been tutoring all grade levels, from elementary education to upper-level college courses. In May of 2006, I graduated with honors from Boise State University (BSU) with a B.S. in Mathematics. I presented my Honors Thesis at three conferences between 2004 and 2007. In May of 2008, I graduated from BSU with an M.S. in Mathematics and successfully defended my Masters Thesis.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to look at recently graded material or let the student describe what he/she is struggling to understand.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Tutoring since 2001, taught 20+ semesters of college math, B.S. in Math (2006), M.S. in Math (2008), J.D. from Notre Dame Law School (2011), currently 5th year Math Ph.D at CU Boulder.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$40/hr if we meet on the CU Boulder campus, $50/hr anywhere else.

How did you get started teaching?

Tutoring

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and levels. About 40% have been middle school/high school and half have been college.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I tutor two middle school brothers and their friend and the mothers asked if i would play music with them. I play drums, piano, and guitar, so the four of us had an improv jam session. Unique as far as math lessons goes.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure they explain the why, not the how. Tutors get lazy, too, and will give bandaid solutions rather than fix a cracked foundation.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

"Can I explain this to others?" Until you can explain material to fellow students, you don't really understand it.
