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 writing. With a minor in Creative Writing, I am able to tutor college level composition and criticism. For the last four years at the UA Poetry Center, I have been teaching ages 4-18 varyingly during the week and weekends. I also designed and taught the UA Poetry Center's first collaborative writing course for parents and their children to experience the joys of writing together.

There are few things more rewarding than successful communication between student and teacher. When both are able to share or discover passion for a subject, there is a tremendous, symbiotic growth. Tutoring is special because it allows for this kind of deeper and more worthwhile connection to the material.

I have always enjoyed teaching at all levels; the best way to solidify knowledge of a subject is to help someone else learn. I look forward to learning with you!

Helping with SAT and writing

When I asked him to help my daughter with her calculus and chemistry problems besides SAT, he agreed to do that. I was looking for that kind of knowledgeable tutor.

Excellent Tutor for the SAT

I was listening in on my son's SAT tutoring session last night and was really happy. Mason was patient yet firm and really gave my son great tips for taking the SAT. They are pinpointing my son's strengths and weaknesses which I think will really help him with the test. Mason appears to have a lot of experience and I'm very happy that my son is able to be tutored by him!

Best tutor!!!

I was lucky enough to have Mason as my teacher this evening. The level of professionalism and down to earth nature, made getting my assignment done in no time flat. I am delighted by the quality of his work and generosity of his time. You would be very fortunate to have him as your teacher as well.
