About this tutor

I am very patient and will work with the student at their pace.  I do not "put down" or ridicule students that I tutor.  I love teaching math and I love to share that passion with those that have a desire to learn.

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

I start by asking what areas the student is struggling.  Then, I work with them on homework problems and ask them to talk their way through the problem with me.  If I feel that they need more problems to work on, I will give them extra problems to work on before we meet again.

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

I have a PhD in computational applied mathematics.  I taught ten semesters of Precalculus while pursuing my PhD.  I have tutored several people over the years who were preparing for various tests and certifications.  They all passed which made me extremely happy!

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

I do not have a standard pricing for my lessons.  My asking rate is $40/hr but can be flexible.

How did you get started teaching?

I was pursuing my Doctorate degree and my school asked me to teach.  I enjoyed teaching students.  After graduating, I decided to work outside the University.

What types of students have you worked with?

Primarily college students and working adults.  

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

I would say to hire a tutor that is patient and willing to work with the student at their pace.

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

They should determine which specific areas in their class they are struggling with so we can work together on those areas.
