The important thing to realize in tutoring is that all students learn differently. I have had over 15 years of tutoring experience: from friends in grade school and college to students I taught at the University of Minnesota, and more recently to friend's children. As such I have seen and have been able to help a very diverse number of students with various skill levels. Students often think that a subject matter is hard because of past low grades or former bad instruction, and the key to helping students is to first show that he or she can overcome the past. It's a matter of being coached and lead into the right way of looking at the subject matter. Though some of us are naturally more talented at certain subjects than others, I have found that with the right teacher, all students can learn any subject matter. The way that quickly help students learn abstract subjects such as math and physics, my specialties, is to relate those ideas to common every day experiences. This is how I tutor, and I have found it to be very effective. If you or your children are struggling with these harder and more abstract subjects, like math and physics, then I can help. I personally find it very rewarding to experience that aha moment with students who finally realize that he or she has just learned a new idea which previously had been so impossible.

Great Tutor After being out of school for almost 7 years, I was in great need of help in mathematics. I hired Long in early March of 2013 in hopes that he could help me improve my math skills for the upcoming fall semester of college. He did just that. I am now on my second semester of school with full confidence in math. He is a very talented tutor with a PhD in Physics that really shows. Long did a gre ...
