Presently a Mathematics Ph.D student at CU Boulder, I have a Master's in Math from Boise State University and a law degree from the University of Notre Dame. I tutored for nine years before going to law school and have taught eight college math classes over the last seven years. I clerked for a judge for two years and passed the bar in both Nevada and Idaho. But, teaching is my passion. It is what drew me away from a full-time legal career. I have presented my theories on math education to three education conferences and am very good at what I love.

I have extensive experience, and have had great success teaching at all levels: elementary through higher-level undergraduate courses.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have achieved the following scores on standardized math tests: 35 on ACT math in 2000, 99-percentile on GRE in 2012, and 78-percentile on GRE Math Subject test (upper-level college math) in 2012.

Algebra 2

I have a Masters in Mathematics and have taught eight semesters of college math. I tutored for nine years and have presented my education theories at three education conferences. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 2011 and clerked for a judge for two years. But my love for teaching drew me back into math and I am presently a Ph.D Mathematics student at CU-Boulder. I have had great success with students at all ages; partly because I know my stuff, but mostly because I love to teach.

Bar Exam

I earned a J.D. from the University of Notre Dame Law School in May 2011, passed the Nevada Bar in July 2012, and passed the UBE in Idaho Bar in February 2013. I am admitted to practice in both States and am in the process of being admitted into Colorado, which accepts the UBE.

Calculus

Although I have tutored just about every math subject there is, I have tutored calculus far more often than any other subject. I rarely encounter a problem that I haven't seen several times in the past and I've had great success helping students make the leap from pre-calc to calc.

Differential Equations

I took Differential Equations in undergrad, earned a Masters, and am presently a Math Ph.D student. I have tutored this particular class and have taken Partial Differential Equations, a graduate course which listed Differential Equations as a prerequisite.

Discrete Math

I took Discrete Math in undergrad, earned a Masters, and am presently a Math Ph.D student. I tutored my fellow classmates and have taken several graduate courses that discussed discreteness: set theory, topology, number theory, etc.

Geometry

I have a Masters in Mathematics and have taught eight semesters of college math. I tutored for nine years and have presented my education theories at three education conferences. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 2011 and clerked for a judge in Reno, NV for two years. But my love for teaching drew me back into math and am presently a first-year Ph.D Mathematics student at CU-Boulder. I have had great success with students at all ages; partly because I know my stuff, but mostly because I love to teach.

Linear Algebra

I took Linear Algebra in undergrad, earned a Masters, and am presently a Math Ph.D student. I have not tutored this particular class, but I have tutored undergraduate analysis, so I have experience teaching upper level undergraduate classes. I have also taken Linear Programming, a graduate course which listed Linear Algebra as a prerequisite.

Logic

My emphasis in graduate school, where I earned a Masters, was Logic and Set Theory. I am presently a Math Ph.D student. I have taught Logic and Set Theory for several introductory undergraduate courses and I have taken several graduate Logic and Set Theory courses, including a special topics course concerning the independence of the continuum hypothesis from ZFC.

SAT Math

I had a 780 on the SAT in 2000 and recently got a perfect score on the GRE math section along with a 78-percentile on the GRE Math Subject exam (upper-level college math).

Worth the fee. — Trevor was incredibly flexible with our last minute request. He was also great with my 16 year old who said Trevor knew his geometry and was great at explaining it to him so he could understand it. ...
