I am a recent cum laude graduate of Christian Brothers University with bachelor's degrees in both Mathematics and Computer Science. I am currently employed as a programmer in the insurance industry. I hail from an impressive line of mathematics professors: my father was a high school mathematics instructor for over 30 years, and my uncle was a Professor of Mathematics at an HBCU in Mississippi. While at CBU, I was employed for two years as a tutor in the Math Tutoring Lab, tutoring students and non-students as well. My typical method is to try to relate the problem or topic to the student's interests.

I have a passion for Mathematics, and I understand that every person does not share my passion. However, I do wish for everyone to have an appreciation for Mathematics. It surrounds us, and we cannot escape it. This mentality is what drives me to associate topics with the student's interests. A lot of people are stuck on how math will be used in the real world, so I try to find a real world application.

One of the most important things to realize is: you're not the only Algebra student that has ever existed. Therefore, there are millions of previous students who have asked and answered the same questions you may have. There are also lots of sites that have practice worksheets for the type of problems that you may be struggling with. A simple Google (or your favorite search engine) search will... read more

When I was learning to factor trinomials in the 6th grade, the original method my teachers explained confused me to the point of tears. However, they introduced another method, the Box Method, that made the thought process more organized an easier to understand. I have the hardest time keeping numbers straight in my head, so the mental math required for the "shortcut" to factoring... read more
