My son was super nervous to meet with a new math tutor but Casey made him feel right at ease. He was able to quickly assess his strengths and weaknesses and find better ways of explaining the concepts that were still not fully understand. At the end of the session, a gentleman who had been sitting near them in the cafe commented what an amazing math tutor he was, that he had learned a few things himself, and was interested in seeing if Casey could tutor his son who is now in college.

Casey is very knowledgeable, with patience, solutions, and a friendly / teaching attitude and approach to problem solving. Casey takes time to explain different concepts and breaks it down so it's easy to understand. Casey is extremely easy to work with, and is the best tutor out there.

This is my first time using WyzAnt for tutors. Casey responded very promptly, and made it very convenient for me. He showed up on time, and has a very pleasant personality. I would highly recommend him for your math tutoring needs.

Not only is Casey extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the lesson content, but as a math instructor, he offers practical study and testing skills that can also help improve one's performance. 100% satisfied!

Casey definitely seemed very knowledgeable of the advanced mathematics material. He had difficulty developing rapport with me, and when I'd try to stop him to ask a question, he was not very responsive. He did offer me a free lesson to try again, which I appreciated. If you're used to lecture-style teaching, this is the tutor for you.

It was unfortunate to not be able to build rapport with this student. This session had to be conducted via wyzant's online platform, while it was still very new. I always prefer in-person sessions, since mathematics is so deeply tied to the human connection. This student was an adult graduate student, and due to the nature of the long distance session, the lecture style mentioned above was a necessity due to circumstance. This is highly uncharacteristic of typical sessions. I do wish Mei'ira the best in her studies.

I like how Casey can simplify things down for me so that I fully understand what the problem wants and how to approach the problem itself. I like the way he tutors as well, explaining things step by step. Overall, he's an awesome tutor!

He helped me a lot the night before my exam. He is one of the best teachers I have seen. He explained it really well and I really recommend him. He will make math look really easy.

GRE
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

The ACT exam focuses on the two subjects of Algebra and Geometry. I have qualifications listed for both of these subjects and extensive experience helping many students prepare for college entrance exams.

Algebraic structures (especially of the abstract variety) has always been one of my greatest strengths in mathematics.

I have taught every imaginable Algebra course, and tutored countless students at all levels in this subject matter.

My unique approach and insight into Algebra as a subject matter has given many students I've worked with the ability to not just excel in the course they are taking, but to remain ahead in algebraic endeavors in the future.

Learn about the nature of our number systems, how they interact with each other, what a variable is and means... what Groups, Rings, and Fields are, and how they allow for a greater understanding of nature, physics, and mathematics in general.

Many people I speak with have experience tutoring Calculus. It is the most widely required mathematics course in any engineering program at any major University in the nation. Do these tutors really understand what a LIMIT is???

Calculus is the subject of limits, the idea that we can look at a discrete problem and shrink the scale in such a way that a pattern emerges, allowing us to 'guess' at what the limiting behavior 'should be'. Rates of change (speed, velocity, acceleration, etc), all require LIMITS to be understood fully.

I've taught Calculus at the University level (both single and multivariable). This subject has its own inherent natural beauty, when you consider how nature and physics works, and how calculus can describe natural phenomena we observe on a daily basis.

Tired of the boring problems you are assigned to do for homework? Would you like a translator to take your assignment and put it into a context you can relate to... making Calculus FUN and exciting to learn?

My PhD research is in Mathematics Education, particularly the problems schools, students, teachers and parents are now facing since the implementation of the New Common Core standards of mathematics. I studied at the University of Arizona, where the lead author for the Common Core (Bill McCallum) was my department chair. I attend regular discussions with many math teachers about Common Core issues, and an a regular contributor to many online communities about this subject.

I have taught numerous CS classes at the university level, mostly on theory, algorithm writing, automatons and pseudo-code.

What exactly is a Turing Machine, and how has Apple developed one into the book we regularly use in the digital age? Signup for some CS tutoring and find out!

I have taught Diff EQ in the university setting for lectures of 150-200 students. I have written and graded numerous homework, tests, and quizzes.

Ever wondered how populations grow and shrink in an environment, interested in understanding how your coffee/tea percolates in the pot? What exactly is a dynamical system, and how can we understand it mathematically?

My undergrad degree is in Discrete Mathematics. This is the subject of how "finitely separated" things interact with each other. It includes understanding Linear Algebra (Matrices, systems of equations) as well as basic LifeSkills that do not require Calculus (i.e. continuous mathematics).

Without a firm understanding of the discrete side of our universe (after all, continuous math/calculus is simply an idealization of how things should work, not how they are), Calculus can never be fully understood!

My current research focus is on the teaching of Algebra at the earliest of ages, and how a proper reinforcement of the abstract underlying principles of our number systems can cement a foundation for the future learning of mathematics to promote accelerated acquisition of knowledge in all scientifically related subjects!

Interested in setting up your youngster to excel in mathematics (and by extension all sciences) for their entire academic careers? Don't delay, start today...one is never to young to learn counting and arithmetic!

Finite mathematics is a subBranch of Discrete (finitely separated) mathematics.

Geometry is the subject of shapes and sizes... measurements of the Earth, in the ancient Greek. Spatial reasoning, understanding maps and directions is of vital importance for navigation (even with GoogleMaps or WAZE, knowing Geometry will help you get around).

Subjects like trigonometry and topology are simply extensions or branches of this most basic understanding of shape and relative size! Ever wonder how a donut and a teacup are related (hint: they are topologically the same shapes).

Understanding dimension is another vital concept that Geometry can teach us. 3-D (and dare I mention n-dimensions) problems are something that pose great difficulty to many students. Understanding how to simplify a problem, examining something analogous in a lower dimension can often lead to greater understanding that can then be pieced back together to solve a more complex problem that was initially posed. These are valuable skills that can be learned through studying Geometry and applied to any challenging problem in a vast array of settings.

Start developing your understanding of shapes and size today!

The GRE math exam focuses on the two subjects of Algebra and Geometry. I have qualifications listed for both of these subjects and extensive experience helping many students prepare for college entrance exams.

I have taught numerous Linear Algebra courses at high school, college, and university levels. Homework, tests, and quizzes were written and graded; in fact I was solely responsible for an entire online homework systems design, development, writing and coding at the University of Arizona. This project was done over back to back semesters, while being beta-tested in the classroom.

Learn the skills necessary to work in Industrial Systems Engineering... How do we optimize efficiency given parameters and equations that relate them? We use a system of linear equations and Matrix Algebra to solve that system!

Formal Mathematical Logic is the basis for LAW. Interested in taking the LSAT and going to law school? Would you like to make more concise arguments in your professional life, have a need to find the flaw in someone else's argument, or perhaps you'd simply like to understand the Philosophy of some of the great thinkers of the past... no matter what learning (prop) Logic, and understanding how to make logical inferences and manipulate symbols is a valuable tool.

What is pre-calculus?

See Calculus qualifications.

What is often taught in schools as 'pre'Calculus is simply algebra geared toward preparing someone to learn calculus from a textbook, taught according to a specific curriculum, and answer questions on tests written many years ago that are rarely altered.

I teach mathematics, and the skills necessary to succeed. Be that in a preCalculus, Algebra, Geometry, Calculus or any other course. A few sessions together will open up a new way of viewing the subjects taught in school and students often begin to excel quickly in their current, and future, mathematics classes.

The SAT exam focuses on the two subjects of Algebra and Geometry. I have qualifications listed for both of these subjects and extensive experience helping many students prepare for college entrance exams.

Have tutored students in basic introduction to stats, taught college level statistics for business math, and have helped graduate students learn the math behind machine learning algorithms (support vector machines are statistical in nature).

Trigonometry is a branch of Geometry that deals with Angles and their relationships within shapes.
