Hi, I'm Damon. I genuinely enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about math and view it as a mission to help improve math's reputation among the topics of study. I started tutoring as a math grad student working on my PhD, and continued on during and after my academic teaching. In many ways I prefer tutoring to teaching in a traditional classroom setting, because while tutoring I have the luxury of being able to respond specifically to a student’s concerns and craft my message for just one student at a time, as opposed to 30 or more. I’ve been teaching and/or tutoring math for almost 20 years now, and in that time, I’ve helped all ages and abilities to achieve their goals in a wide variety of topics in mathematics.
My primary goal as a tutor is to adapt to each individual's learning style in order to make learning as efficient and fun as possible. I've been told I have a knack for explaining mathematical concepts in a clear and concise way, which is fortunate for me because I genuinely enjoy helping students overcome frustrations to appreciate how much fun math can be.
I'm available to help with all levels of mathematics, including all K - 12 subjects, calculus, probability, statistics, finite math, discrete math, algebra, analysis, and many more.
My scheduling is flexible, whether you'd like to meet just once to get past a particular problem or topic, or more regularly to learn a new topic or improve your grade. So, whether you're in a class and looking to improve your grade, or you're a homeschooler looking to put together a class, or a busy professional getting ready to go back to school or develop a new skill, (or anything else!) let me know and I can help you get there!
I've tutored and taught Algebra 1 many times.
I have taught and tutored college level differential equations many times, helping students make sense of first-order equations, second-order linear equations, Laplace transforms, homogenous equations, and the like. Although there is a lot of material to keep track of in a typical first differential equations course, a solid background in calculus will go a long way toward success.
I have tutored and taught discrete math many times, and it's one of my favorite subjects.
Since my first undergraduate course in linear algebra, and on through graduate school, linear algebra has always been one of my favorite subjects. I have tutored many linear algebra students on the ins and outs of matrix arithmetic, Gauss-Jordan elimination, linear transformations and vector spaces. I have also taught several college linear algebra courses over the years.
