As an Ivy League graduate, I have a solid academic foundation. In addition to my BS, I also have an MBA. Furthermore, I have completed the coursework for a PhD in management science, which included several doctoral level math and statistics courses. I have been teaching math and statistics for 17 years at a variety of schools, ranging from career colleges to elite research universities. Although I have taught primarily at the college level (undergraduate and graduate), I have tutored and served as a substitute teacher at the middle school/high school levels.

When I work with students individually, I do not use pre-planned lessons. I assess their needs and develop custom tutoring sessions for their maximum benefit. I like teaching math because math problems all have a specific technique or method. Very little memorization is required. All math problems of a certain topic are completed using the the same methodology. Getting students to realize that is the key. Students who struggle in math will look at two homework problems in a section of a textbook and see two completely different problems. Once they understand the methodology is the same, they will begin to see the same problem repeated with different numbers (instead of two different problems). That is when I know I am successful.

Another great tutor session with Steve! Over the past two weeks he has increased my understanding of Statistics to a point that I'm actually "getting it"! He has a very patient teaching style coupled with teaching method that suits my learning style!

Thanks, Steve!

Steve brings both expert knowledge and tremendous interpersonal skills to his tutor sessions. Steve has both engaged and held our son accountable for his role in the tutor sessions. Steve is patient, well organized and disciplined. He has set a higher level of expectation for our son who, through his strong rapport with and respect for Steve, is excited to deliver against. Steve is worth his weight in gold; increasing the student's self-expectations, confidence, understanding, and yes - greatly improved grades.

Steven S. has been my tutor for 2 weeks now and I have really come a long way with his help. He is definitely a five star tutor across the board. It's been many years since algebra and Steven has made the lessons easy to understand and preparations for testing enjoyable.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have taught math for 18 years from middle school up through college and graduate school. I have 36 college and graduate credits in math and statistics. The courses I teach encompass both discrete and continuous math topics. Furthermore, I have over 400 hours of math/statistics tutoring with WyzAnt; and most of them include discrete math problems. Discrete math is not a subject of math , such as algebra, geometry, or calculus. Rather, it is a description of the type of distribution involved. In simplistic terms, discrete math uses whole numbers, not fractions or decimals. Essentially, it includes "countable sets." The distinction is readily noticeable in probability problems, in which the calculations for discrete variables and continuous variables are much different from each other..
