Awarded Wyzant.com's Top 50 Tutor Award for 2013. I've been successfully helping students learn a wide variety of subjects for over 15 years. I'm a friendly, calm individual who is good at observing what it is you're struggling with. My style is to identify your weak points by watching you work through problems, to demonstrate a technique that can help you perform better, and then to help you implement the technique to successfully solve similar problems.
