About this tutor

Math doesn't come naturally to everyone, so the key is to find the best way to help relate students to the subject matter. My goal is to meet students where they are, so we can find the best way to move forward in their mathematical journey.

I was a 99th percentile student in math and graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint with a degree in Actuarial Math with a minor in Economics. I am well versed in the vast array of math topics.

At my job I need to explain complex math to people without a math degree. I am skilled in breaking down a concept and getting people to understand it. 

When I see others struggling with math, my default is to help. I have been a math tutor on and off since 2006, and now more than ever I want to help. COVID-19 has forced many students into a new learning environment and they need to adapt quickly. That quickness is unrealistic and many students will need additional assistance. I want to use my skills, knowledge, and free time to help students excel in this difficult time.

I recently made huge lasagnas and turkey dinners for two neighbors who lost their jobs. 


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

Everyone learns differently. Students should look for tutors that are able to make the subject matter more accessible to them, rather than repeating and promoting methods that do not work for the student.

What is my goal for this process?
