About Clifton

Hi, I'm Cliff.

I own a Master's in Math (UAH 2004) and have twelve years experience as a math instructor at the college and high school levels. I also have many hours of tutoring experience, both privately and as an employee of a large national tutoring service.

I'm proficient in math at all levels through all college undergrad courses. I also have tutored students in ACT/SAT preparation. I can also help with writing assignments, especially in technical and scientific areas.

My tutoring "office" is anywhere the student chooses -- library, coffee shop, student's home (in Huntsville), etc.

I also have recently added an online capability.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have many hours of experience in ACT math prep, and am well versed in each of the tests' topics.
My preferred method is to work sample tests, offering tips and taking the student's questions for each problem. These sample tests are available in ACT manuals at most bookstores. I ask each student to obtain such a manual for use in sessions with me as well as while working on his/her own.

Discrete Math

I taught Math 110 (Discrete Math) several times at UAH. These are the topics, straight from the catalog's course description:
• college algebra
• sets and the algebra of sets, including the set operations and relations
• logic and the algebra of logic, including logical operations and relations
• combinatorics, including permutations and combinations
• elementary probability and its applications
• descriptive statistics
• an introduction to matrices and their operations and applications

Precalculus

I have taught precalculus at both the high school and college level, and have tutored in the subject as well. As such, I know what to emphasize with an eye on the student's calculus future.

Patient

The first session was great but was a bit awkward. He discussed the solutions of the problems and explained information in a way that was understandable. He was very patient and wrote out problems for me to do while walking me through each one.
