I'm Caden, a straightforward person. If we're comfortable talking I'll try and be funny, but if you want to keep things professional, I'll keep it that way. Most would describe me as a laid back smart kid, I'm going to school for engineering in computer hardware at UNL. I had a 4.0 gpa in every math class I had so I should be an adequate tutor. Currently tutoring for pre-algebra, algebra, advanced algebra, geometry, trigonometry, college algebra, and precalc. If you have anything else we could talk about whether I know enough to tutor.

As a recently graduated Math and Business student from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I have about 2 years of tutoring experience working for the UNL College of Business. I am very experienced and comfortable tutoring statistics, with quite a bit of experience tutoring a wide variety of finance and mathematics courses as well. I have experience with online tutoring and the increased scheduling flexibility that can come with it. I'll come prepared with practice questions for the area we plan to cover, but I am always ready to adapt to any student's needs and learning styles.

On average, students take 9 to 50 sessions.

What do private math tutors do?
