I suspect I've come to an understanding of mathematics unlike just about anyone you might have met. I could discuss it endlessly, and in as much depth as any audience would allow. The benefit of this to any math student would be that they will find my patience profuse, my eagerness to clarify its techniques tireless, my ingenuity unparalleled in creating the most illuminating metaphors for its intentions and its practices to those ends. I love mathematics, and while I don't imagine I'll make you love it too, I suspect that together we can make you see it to be as plain and obvious as tying shoelaces or as careless as chewing gum.
My education provided me an introduction to and required quite a command of fairly advanced mathematics. As such, I've developed a robust catalog of responses to "What on Earth does anybody use this for?," as well as a great sympathy for the frustrating, slow process that is comprehension. I imagine you'll find me the guy you just can't ask TOO MANY questions of, because I'll always have a response. I'll see it as just another road to show where we can go with your studies.
My priority in arranging tutoring sessions is the comfort and convenience of the student. I am available to provide at-home instruction, but if your time commitments require something a bit less traditional, like say, meeting at a coffeehouse or a library, I'm willing to be flexible.
