Mostly Mathematics tutor
I am a mathematics and physics major at Arizona State University and have been tutoring mathematics here since January 2013 (I tutored at the largest math tutoring center in the nation (ASU's) for 3 years and got a tutor of the year reward there one year). I am always ready to learn more math and share any knowledge of it with other people (in fact I enjoy doing both!).

I am a mathematics and physics major at Arizona State University and have been tutoring mathematics here since January 2013 (I tutored at the largest math tutoring center in the nation (ASU's) for 3 years and got a tutor of the year reward there one year). I am always ready to learn more math and share any knowledge of it with other people (in fact I enjoy doing both!). I believe the best way to learn math is to understand the underlying concepts behind mathematical problems, to understand the problem solving techniques used to solve specific 'types' of problems, and to question why (to be curious about) certain mathematical truths are what they are.
In High School I took (Geometry and Algebra) Calculus I and Calculus II and received a 5 on the AP Calculus B/C exam. At ASU, I have taken (for math or math related) Math for Business Analysis (MAT211), Introduction to Programming in Java (CSE110), Calculus III (MAT272), Differential Equations (MAT275), Linear Algebra (MAT342), Mathematical Structures (MAT300), Discrete Mathematics (MAT243), Advanced Calculus I (MAT371), Introduction to Abstract Algebra (MAT443), Cryptography I (MAT447), Number Theory (MAT445), Cryptography II (MAT448), Intermediate Abstract Algebra (MAT444), IEE380 (Stats and Probability), Differential Geometry (MAT494), Honors Microeconomics (ECN214), Economics of Money and Banking (ECN315), Probability (STP421), Physics I,II, & III (PHY150,151,252), and Mathematical Methods for Physics II (PHY302), General Relativity (PHY523), and Classical & Continuum Mechanics (PHY521).
Discrete mathematics is one of my favorite courses to tutor.

accommodating and knowledgeable of statistics
He was very patient, nice, and helpful regarding hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, StatCrunch, Ti-84 statistical tools, and calculating statistical formulas by hand. I was very lucky to find him, and I recommend this tutor to anyone who has issues with statistics.Nassera, 1 lesson with Adam
Knowledgeable and brilliant
Adam is a kind, patient individual who is a fantastic math tutor. He takes every problem and explains it step by step, guiding you through it so you can complete problems on your own. He’s very approachable and flexible, always trying to work with students’ schedules to set up time for tutoring. He makes dry subjects like Calculus 1 easy and fun.Uzma, 4 lessons with Adam
Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to!
Adam helped me work through several discrete math problems. He is an excellent tutor. He is also very responsive through email, which makes organizing times less stressful.Caroline, 1 lesson with Adam
Adam is a good tutor who knows the subject really well. He helped me out with business calculus and explained the topic well. I would recommend to anyone taking MAT 211.Matthew, 1 lesson with Adam
Great first session!
Zoey was very impressed with Adam's knowledge of the subjects and his teaching style was easy to understand! We are looking forward to additional sessions throughout the semester!Zoey, 1 lesson with Adam
Great teacher, lots of resources and sociable
Adam helped me hone my Calculus skills before my final by demonstrating his knowledge of the subject and teaching me new skills and tricks. He also provided numerous resources that proved to be helpful and I referred to a few times. I had some great conversation with Adam and overall would definitely choose again to tutor!Alexander, 1 lesson with Adam
Adam had a lot of knowledge about relations, sets, cartesian product, and induction. In addition to the information given during the session he also provided other resources such as videos and textbooks.Nneka, 1 lesson with Adam
Adam was very helpful in going over my review with me, he showed me tricks on my TI-84 calculator that I was not aware of. I would recommend him, wish I would have found him when I was in college algebra!Steve, 2 lessons with AdamTutor responded:
Lists, Distributions, and Statistics (hypothesis tests) Tests on the Ti-84 are very helpful in statistics.
He was good with matrices and inverse operations for MAT 211 but struggled a lot helping me with probability questions. I recommend hiring a different tutor if you are taking MAT 211.Seidy, 1 lesson with AdamTutor responded:
Since this time, I have become much better equipped at solving MAT211 probability questions. These problems in particular involved combinations and permutations in their calculations.
Great tutor. Very responsible.
I'm very glad. Adam is a really prepared tutor and is really helping my daughter. She feels well prepared and gets her math stuff now. Adam is really responsible and always on time and when we send him an email he replays immediately.Ana, 7 lessons with Adam
