About Darius


Bio

I love teaching! I’ve been teaching for a year at Valiant Cross Academy, but I’ve been tutoring for half a decade.

I have 6+ years experience with all types of Mathematics tutoring from grades 6-12. Although I am experienced in all topics, I specialize in Algebra - whether it be procedural topics (like factoring, solving systems of equations, etc.), or more abstract topics like Abstract Algebra, Complex Analysis, etc. Geometry is a close second - especially when it comes to test prep and...

I love teaching! I’ve been teaching for a year at Valiant Cross Academy, but I’ve been tutoring for half a decade.

I have 6+ years experience with all types of Mathematics tutoring from grades 6-12. Although I am experienced in all topics, I specialize in Algebra - whether it be procedural topics (like factoring, solving systems of equations, etc.), or more abstract topics like Abstract Algebra, Complex Analysis, etc. Geometry is a close second - especially when it comes to test prep and topic breakdowns! I am a very visual/kinesthetic learner so this is typically my approach within the average session.

I believe that there is no concept too hard to grasp and it is my lifelong mission to spread that to my students! I am compassionate and patient by nature, but also headstrong in achieving this goal. Thus I am proficient at meeting the student where they are! I am not deterred by any skill level and it is my firm belief that the seemingly impossible in Math can become not only possible, but easy!

Writing

During the latter half of my undergrad, I worked one on one (through Upward Bound) to analyze text responses for high schoolers. I viewed and made real-time suggestions to various forms of their essays, helping them to refine their unique writing styles. Regarding ACT prep, I aided in their revision of sentence/paragraph structure, topic/thesis sentences, grammar, syntax as well as a myriad of other writing staples.

Great teacher

I definitely recommend him, made everything a lot easier to understand and included notes to remember for future problems. He was pretty flexible and didn’t mind going over time just to make sure you understand a problem. 10/10

Hegan, 6 lessons with Darius

Great Tutor!

Darius made sure she understood the formulas before he moved on to the next series/type of problems. He’s patient and nurturing with his teaching style. I highly recommend!!!

Will continue to use Darius

Darius was well prepared. He reviewed the material I sent prior to the session. He was encouraging and patient. The one on one is perfect for getting ready for major test.

Knowledgeable, focused and patient tutor

Darius comes prepared to teach. He begins by explaining the concept in a way that a student will easily grasp. He then creates examples that he can work through with you until you have the confidence to independently solve problems. The best tutor ever!
