I am an experienced high school Math and Physics teacher living in Anchorage, Alaska. I have taught and tutored in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and Physics, and have helped dozens of students succeed in these challenging subjects! I can also tutor in college level math subjects such as Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Number Theory, and more. I am especially adept at cutting through jargon and making sure that students attain a demonstrable mastery of the subjects, using rules, memory devices, clear cut examples, and real world applications.
I am available not only for in-person tutoring in the Anchorage area, but also online sessions. Working late on the East Coast? Take advantage of the fact that I'm four hours earlier than you! Available on short notice as needed.

Scott honed in on exactly the problems that our daughter was having and helped her correct them. He is really engaging, easy going, and very good and explaining a very tough subject. He is an excellent tutor!Lucy, 1 lesson with Scott
My daughter likes Scott; she said she likes the way he explained things. As I hovered in the background I heard him giving encouragement and confirming that she knew the concepts. I was so surprised to hear that; because she gave me the impression she was really struggling with the concepts. He hit on the fact that she needed more confidence about her work. We’ll be scheduling with Scott again!Phyllis, 3 lessons with Scott
Scott is an amazing tutor. While other tutors declined my requests for help due to it being late, Scott helped me and I went from being worried about my final to feeling very confident! Great guy!Adam, 2 lessons with Scott

Excellent tutor, very patient!
My daughter really felt like Scott helped her understand Algebra. He was very patient while helping her with her homework, giving her tips that made it seem much easier than she thought it was before.Charlotte, 1 lesson with Scott
By going over basics, including examples and practice, I was able to finally understand it. I appreciate that Scott made time to help me before my test. He obviously knows his topic conceptually and explains it in a way I can grasp.Marie, 17 lessons with Scott
Scott gave clear instruction.
My son took an AP Physics class. He was very happy with class. Scott gave clear instruction. My son wants to return for future instruction. He also gave feedback to parent.Elaine, 1 lesson with Scott
My son stated that Scott has by far been the best tutor he has had.
They worked on Algebra 2 and covered various concepts. My son expected to cover 1 or 2 of the areas he had questions on and to his surprise they were able to cover everything. He is able to simplify explanations making it easy to grasp the concept. Great session.Lorie, 1 lesson with Scott
