I have been tutoring students informally for over 15 years, from GED students to College of Southern Maryland (CSM) students with great success. I have also taught my own three children math with great results. My 18 year old finished his differential equations class during his first semester at CSM. My 14 and 15 year old daughters are currently studying Pre-Calculus, which I teach them four nights per week.

My style, if I had to describe it, would be a hands-on method, using many examples with plenty of repetition. In my years of experience, I have found that math is not a spectator sport. You learn by doing, not watching. The key to math is learning some basic fundamentals, and then learning how to apply them. My math focus is in pre-algebra, algebra I and II, and trigonometry because it is at this level where students really struggle. The reason for the struggle is a lack of knowledge of the fundamentals, and that's where I feel I can provide the most help.

My biggest strength, as I've been told by former students, is my patience and ability to make math simple.

An extremely patient professional who understands my needs. — I have been out of the math scene for quite some time and Eli has been there for me each step of the way. As a 38 year old returning Pre-Algebra student it can be embarrassing when the simple stuff becomes overwhelming. That's where Eli comes in, his systematic approach to learning has really helped me understand what I need to do. Anyways.... enough can't be said about this man's teaching techniq ...
