Hi! My name is Cameron, and I love tutoring Math
! I am a Strake Jesuit College Prep grad, National Merit Scholar, and I studied Math at the US Air Force Academy, the University of St. Thomas in Houston, and the University of Houston. I have worked with dozens of students from the top Private schools in Houston, and I never get tired of seeing my students do better in school and get into the college of their choice!
When I was in high school I actually struggled with math like many students do, so I know what that feels like. But, when I was considering what to study in college, I decided to really challenge myself, and so I chose to study Mathematics
! And the cool thing I found is that once I developed my skills, I actually enjoyed Math!
My unique perspective has allowed me to help the 50+ students that I have worked with to overcome their anxieties and confusion with math and science. I especially enjoy tutoring Algebra
, and Chemistry
, and I am constantly being told by the students with whom I work that I explain things in a way that makes sense to them (even when their teacher can't!). I think this is because I had to teach myself math, that I know how to explain things to a student in a similar position as I was in. If you are interested in hearing more about my story, be sure to check out my blog or ask me - I am more than happy to share what I have learned.
I have worked with students of all backgrounds (private school, public, and Montessori), struggling students and exceptional ones who just need a study buddy, and even students with learning disabilities. So no matter what your learning style/situation is, I am confident that I can help.
Some examples of successes with past students:
3 St. Agnes students in Honors Chemistry - last semester had low C
's, now 1 has an A and the other 2 girls have B+
1 student from Strake Jesuit - from making B's and C's on Algebra tests - now has an A in the class
A concerned mother came to me who wanted her son to be admitted to St. John's School but his ISEE
math score was not high enough. I worked with him for 2 months, and he achieved a 9 (out of 10) on his ISEE math and was accepted to St. John's.
I assisted a female community college student with severe dyslexia
- had never been able to get above a C in a college course - I helped her to achieve all A's in her science courses and a B+ in her Psychology
Assisted a male college student (a 'C' student) to achieve an A in his Calculus course.
I worked with a female college student (with ADHD) with her Pathophysiology course, she now has an A and has, as a result, been admitted to nursing
school. When we began working together her HESI score was below 60% and after working together for two months, she took the test again, and achieved an 83% - Her parents were so grateful and very proud of her (as was I !!)
Subjects that I tutor (both high school and college level):
Algebra (I and II)Pre-AlgebraGeometry
Thanks again for stopping by, and I look forward to working with you! Have a great day!
