I am a retired IT consultant with a love for Math and a desire to make it both fun and understandable for kids who view it as their nemesis.
My educational background is a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry with a minor in Biology from Boston University.
I am a recipient of the American Board Certificate of Teaching Excellence in Mathematics (grades 6 through 12), which is a national certification and an outgrowth of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act of 2001.
My tutoring experience spans years of tutoring Math at both the Middle School and High School levels as well as SAT/ACT Math prep.
I look forward to making your Math learning experience both an enjoyable and a successful one.

Fantastic Tutor! — Jordan went back to the beginning and helped my daughter build a better foundation for pre-calculus. Her understanding for the course material is much more clear now and her grades improved after each session. Jordan was patient and explained everything in a manner that my daughter could definitely understand. He took more time than most would, and really invests in his clients. Jordan has a t ...
