Mathematical concepts have always come easy to me. It is a talent I was born with and enjoyed every subject from arithmetic, to geometry and trig, algebra and calculus, linear algebra and real analysis. It was an easy transition to computer science. My career took me from database programming to web development and continues to evolve.

I have found that the most common problem a student has with any higher mathematical concept is a building block that was missing or overlooked. My responsibility as a tutor is to recognize what’s missing and reinforce those steps needed to comprehend the problem at hand.

Volunteering as a tutor at the College of Alameda brought rewards I had felt when I tutored disabled students while studying at SF State. I have worked with foreign students and students with speech and visual disabilities. I am now paid to tutor at the college and extended to community centers and private sessions.

I received a BS in Computer Science and a BA in Mathematics from San Francisco State University.

Genuine Tutor AND Person

Rusty has a deep understanding of the math concepts and has a very holistic approach to solving problems of the topics we covered. In addition to being erudite as a tutor, he has a genuine interest in not only making sure I understand the material on a deep level but also in my success as a student, as a person! He comes across as a person who's main goal is to better the academic careers of his students, and I think this attitude translates to increased student engagement during sessions, thus facilitating a more effective learning process.

Personable and knowledgeable tutor

Rusty taught is teaching me HTML and CSS, and we will move on to JavaScript next. Rusty is friendly and knows a lot about the subject. Now I can write basic web pages and forms and publish them on a server.
