Hi! I'm Anthony. I'm currently at a sophomore at St. John's College, one of the most rigorous colleges in the country. I've long studied and loved mathematics, particularly the geometry of the ancient Greeks. Furthermore, I've been a tutor in high school mathematics for 3 years. What I teach you'll scarcely find in any middle school, high school, or even college level class. And I do really mean "teach".

Hi! I'm Anthony. I'm currently at a sophomore at St. John's College, one of the most rigorous colleges in the country. I've long studied and loved mathematics, particularly the geometry of the ancient Greeks. Furthermore, I've been a tutor in high school mathematics for 3 years. What I teach you'll scarcely find in any middle school, high school, or even college level class. And I do really mean "teach". Most educators often lecture and merely talk at their students, and this undoubtedly confuses and disheartens students, but not I. I will talk with you, not at you. I will make you an integral part of each of my lessons. There's not "one size fits all" type of teaching because there's no "one size fits all" type of student. Each person learns in different ways, and I've had much experience and great success appealing to those individual peculiarities that really make something "click" with a student. All of this brings my students to love mathematics.
I've always firmly believed that answering the "why" of math to be the most important part, but also the most difficult part. This is why I'll make it a priority that we lay a proper groundwork and then build from that foundation up to something greater. Most teachers do in completely backwards, however, when they start with some such or other theorem and only answer "why" questions if asked, rather than organically incorporating them into the lessons. This is not what I do. Just as we do not travel through darkness with yet more darkness but instead penetrate it with light, so too is it with teaching; confusion is not dispelled with yet more confusion but instead by understanding and knowledge. As such, I teach with the aim towards your increase in understanding and knowledge, not pushing those "why" questions to the wayside but setting them at the forefront of my lessons. All of this brings my students to understand mathematics.
For 8 years, I've had a spotless record when it comes to mathematics, never got anything below an A for middle school, high school,
