Casey is a mathematician, holding a BS in discrete mathematics focusing on computer science and business from the Georgia Institute of Technology, summa cum laude. He was trained and served as an undergraduate teaching assistant for both the Math and Computer Science Departments. Research interests include game theory, network theory, combinatorics, algebra, industrial systems engineering (optimization and efficiency science), computer science and algorithm design. Casey also holds an MS in Pure Mathematics from the University of Arizona. He held titles of both Graduate Teaching Assistant, serving as lead instructor for many mathematics courses, and Graduate Research Assistant, where research topics covered random matrices, asymptotic analysis, combinatorics, poker modeling and game theory.
Casey now pursues interests in the field of Mathematics Education including:
Tutoring and Academic management.
Early education, focusing on the Common Core mathematics curriculum.
Teaching the fundamental principals of algebra through Arithmetic instruction by using simplified visual learning examples that can be easily grasped by the youngest of learners.
Test prep at all levels including: all mathematics AP exams, SAT, ACT, GRE mathematics, both general and subject specific, LSAT, and science subject tests, like SATII Math and Physics.
Topics I enjoy particularly enjoy teaching include:
Geometry, Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Statistics, Mathematical Modeling, Combinatorics, Algorithms, Probability, Logic, Set Theory, Number Theory, Abstract Algebra, and Problem Solving.
Casey has over 15 years experience teaching mathematics at the College and University levels, Elementary, and tutoring Elementary, Middle, and High School students of all ages and varying levels of mathematics knowledge.
From the basics of Arithmetic to advanced Abstract Algebra, the approach to interpreting a problem and solving it never changes. Reformulation of a problem into a context that makes it of inter
Casey has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 110 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Casey is a proficient tutor with a great, deep knowledge of all the subject matters needed to succeed on the Mathematics GRE Subject Test! His explanations are clear and the solutions he proposes for the problems are very efficient. I highly recommend Casey as a tutor for any mathematics students.Pavel, 1 lesson with Casey
Fluent in Discrete Math
Casey was patient and very thorough when explaining the difficult concepts of math proofs. We appreciate that he was available on short notice to help my daughter with an advanced course in discrete math.Carlene, 2 lessons with Casey
Knowledgeable and friendly tutor
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.Tracy, 1 lesson with Casey
Easy to work with, very helpful, and friendly!!!
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.Alex, 1 lesson with Casey
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.Mercedes, 2 lessons with Casey
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!Karen, 11 lessons with Casey
Knowledgeable, lecture-style teaching
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.Me'ira, 1 lesson with CaseyTutor responded:
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!Jasmine, 13 lessons with Casey
The best 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.Mohammed, 3 lessons with Casey
