I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My wife and I came to Hawai‘i on our honeymoon in 2001 & moved here in 2002. I have been working as a mathematics tutor for more than ten years. I really enjoy it. The world of math contains some really cool things, the Mandelbrot set, Klein bottles, and Hilbert's hotel to name just a few. I like to introduce students to these and other similar, fun topics while tying them to their current classroom material. Understanding where one can go with math makes it much easier, even if we never venture there.
In Hawaii, many students are lost in their current course because they did not do well in a previous course (bad teacher, lack of enthusiasm, etc.). By being aware of that I can quickly help a student fill in the missing gaps in their knowledge and get back on track.
I can help students prepare for exams including PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB, & GRE.
I worked with students as young as second grade and at the other end of the age spectrum, I have worked with a few grandparents. I can work with you, too!
