## About

Hello, I'm Ron. Thank you for considering me as a mathematics tutor!

Why hire me, over the many other available math tutors? I believe I am uniquely qualified in having a broad and deep knowledge of and intuition for mathematics (with an M.A. from a top school), a background in education (another post-graduate degree, and experience teaching at high school, Community College, and University Undergraduates), and communication / social / mentoring skills from having worked as a software engineer in a corporate I.T. team setting for over 20 years.

My tutoring approach is simple, based on Problem Solving. We go with the problems or questions that YOU are having. YOU set the agenda. Spending an entire session on a single question until you fully understand it is much more valuable than rifling through a big set of problems in a superficial manner. Above all, my goal is to boost your confidence in tackling mathematical challenges.

In the process of solving problems, we will make use of classic strategies that probably sound familiar and intuitive but, unfortunately, are underutilized: Draw a Diagram, Make a List, Solve a Simpler Related Problem, Work Backwards, etc.

If "Back-to-Square-One" instruction is needed, then that is what we will do: At your own pace. Pinpointed to where you actually need it.

Communication will be key, in our sessions: I will ask you to verbalize your thinking through problems: This will actually help you solve them. Even when studying on your own, I strongly recommend thinking out loud.

Please contact me to learn more! I would be happy to schedule a FREE 10-minute consultation phone or video call.
