I love to help someone who is struggling in math
begin to succeed and to gain confidence. I especially love to help students understand Statistics
and Advanced Algebra
. During the past 20 years I have tutored several students in these subjects, and have even tutored younger, elementary-aged students.
I tutored one young man from middle school math through Honors PreCalculus
. I also tutored his younger brother for several years. Following is a statement written by his parents: "Jack H. began tutoring our sons in mathematics
when they entered junior high school and continued helping them into high school. He helped them with Algebra, Algebra II
, Geometry, Trigonometry
and PreCalculus. One of our sons took these courses as an honors student and achieved excellent grades in honors mathematics. Mr. H. adjusted his schedule to help our sons before a difficult test or if they needed extra help to understand the material. He knows the material well and communicates in a patient and supportive manner. Having been a long time classroom mathematics teacher, he understands and minimizes the frustration and confusion a tutor can create by using different mathematical theory, techniques and methods in his tutoring sessions than are used in the classroom and in homework assignments. Our family highly recommends Mr. H. for mathematics tutoring."
In order to minimize your anxiety hiring a tutor you have never met, I don't charge for the first consultation session. Although I prefer tutoring in my home in Sun Valley, I will be happy to discuss a location more convenient to you.
Being recently retired from full-time teaching has allowed me to more easily adapt my schedule to that of a student. I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you succeed in your subject.
