Having always been fascinated by numbers and the natural sciences, I bring an enthusiasm and an interest to my work that is atypical of those who have been teaching / tutoring for as long as I have (been). What is more is that I carry with me a breadth of understanding, from Algebra to Statistics, and from Calculus to Physics (among other fields), that is uncommon.
Over the course of my life, I have fostered what, in psychology, is referenced as a "need for cognition." I firmly believe that a careful examination of mathematics and the natural sciences can serve as a gateway to a better understanding of the world in which we live.

Very patient, very thorough, and an overall friendly person with a good sense of humor. He knows his math!
he answers my questions fast
Mr. Procopio has helped my son immensely. He is very knowledgeable in Calculus and has been able to explain concepts one on one giving him more confidence. He has been been very flexible in scheduling sessions as well. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics (Magna cum Laude) from Syracuse University, and I hold a Master of Arts degree in Mathematics from the University at Albany.
I have taught and tutored for nearly twenty years, have worked at a variety of institutions, to include Mohawk Valley Community College, Schenectady County Community College, S. U. N. Y. College of Oswego, the University at Albany, and Colgate University.
I currently serve as a Lecturer (Mathematics and Physics) at S. U. N. Y. Polytechnic Institute and Utica College.
My standard rate typically varies from $25.00 per hour to $45.00 per hour, depending upon the amount of preparation and travel that are required. I have been known to reduce the rate that I charge for those students who may be struggling financially and show a genuine interest in learning.
I have known from the time that I was in Junior High School that I wanted to teach, and I began tutoring whilst still a student in High School.
I actually began teaching as I was completing my degree program in Mathematics (Bachelor of Arts) at Syracuse University.
I have worked with students ranging in age from eight to sixty-something, both in private and in group sessions.
