About Mason


Bio

I have taught and tutored in many different subjects in various parts of the world. Having benefited from one-on-one and small group instructions myself, I know the value in meeting each student at their level and working with their strengths to generate a command of the subject matter. I don't believe that anyone is "bad" at math or "bad" at English. We all are capable of understanding anything with personalized, careful instruction.

I have taught and tutored in many different subjects in various parts of the world. Having benefited from one-on-one and small group instructions myself, I know the value in meeting each student at their level and working with their strengths to generate a command of the subject matter. I don't believe that anyone is "bad" at math or "bad" at English. We all are capable of understanding anything with personalized, careful instruction.

I have extensive experience as a TA, as a tutor in math and science, and as a writing instructor. I believe my ability to move fluidly between these subjects has given me a unique outlook in explaining math and science to literature-minded people and vice versa.

I travel frequently and am looking to tutor online. I am always near my computer and will respond to any questions or emails almost immediately. Because I am frequently overseas, if you are up studying late at night I am probably awake; I'm happy to work flexibly with your schedule.

For over ten years, I have tutored both SAT and ACT prep in both one-on-one and group settings. My STEM and Humanities degrees give me a well-rounded perspective on how to teach not only the required concepts but also the tips high school students need to finish the standardized tests in an accurate and timely manner.

As a cum laude graduate in Geosciences, I am familiar and comfortable with tutoring both 1st and 2nd semester college physics, chemistry, math up to Calculus 2, and especially all earth sciences including physical geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, geochemistry, and geophysics.

I was a TA twice in Stratigraphy and Sedimentology and once in Structural Geology. In both courses, I was responsible for running the lab portions as well as assisting students one-on-one during and after class. I have tutored geology students while performing geochemical and data-system based seismological research in South Africa and Italy, respectively.

In addition to science, I have always loved to teach literature and writi

Knowledgeable, prepared and exactly the help needed

Mason was easy to work with. He is helping with the physics and chemistry calculations that are needed for a college course in Solar Science. The class requires calculus, physics and chemistry knowledge. His help with the physics and chemistry portion will really change my performance in this class. I wish I had found him sooner.

Shay, 5 lessons with Mason

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mason helped me out with physics homework and was very patient. When I was confused he went back and explained it another way. He made sure I understood everything and never went too fast.

Deborah, 9 lessons with Mason

Patient, effective and knowledgeable

I can’t say enough about Mason. He has a laser focused strategy for achieving success in exam preparation. This has instilled self confidence in my daughter and also boosted her performance. I highly recommend him if success is your goal.

Mason is a patient teacher. He goes over every concept and helped me out with simple and hard problems. He is a great teacher and I would highly recommend.

Sarida, 2 lessons with Mason

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

We just had our first lesson today on Reading SAT. My son really liked Mason and connected with him personally. He was extremely supportive and encouraged my son to look at the reading section a different way. We will definitely use Mason as a tutor to help increase my son’s SAT score. He can’t wait for his next lesson.

Carol, 4 lessons with Mason

Responsive, patient, kind, and enthusiastic

Mason's teaching style is perfect: he is enthusiastic about teaching, patient with his students, well organized, and quick to adjust the lesson pacing to his student's needs. He knows when to nudge and when to challenge you. I can't imagine getting lessons from anyone else for college physics and highly recommend him.

Lily, 2 lessons with Mason

Best Sat tutor

I have been working with Mr. Mason for past 6 month already for sat reading and writing part. He gave me a ton of techniques and a tips where I can approach the passage very precise, clear, and fast. Also, since I'm not a native speaker he taught me a lot of vocabulary through the session. I would recommend student who want to learn sat with Mr. Mason

Brave, 41 lessons with Mason
