I am a credentialed teacher providing a broad range of tutoring services in the sciences and mathematics. I customize my tutoring approach to each student’s unique needs by determining their specific talents and challenges and by understanding the classroom teacher’s expectations.

I work with each of my students to identify goals, build a weekly study plan, and identify the specific academic and study skills needed. We will review the results on a periodic basis to ensure that we are meeting objectives.

My educational background is in Zoology and Mechanical Engineering. My career took me down many paths from NASA to software startups. I have taught physics and math in the public school system and now provide one-on-one tutoring services. My wife and I have two adult children, one working as an engineer and the other as a teacher.

My rates are reasonable and flexible. I provide tutoring services in your home or other venues as best suits your needs.

Knowledgeable and patient

Todd was awesome! Patient, and easy going. He was on time and even offered to finish the lesson. He did a great job tutoring our son. We will continue using him for years to come if available.

Great Tutor

I hired Todd to improve my son's ASVAB score. He was very patient and had a knack for explaining things in a way that my son could understand. He helped raise my son's score from a 36 to a 70 in a few short months. Thanks Todd!

Todd had a great connection with my son!

My son really enjoyed his tutoring sessions with Todd, he made teaching fun. My son struggles with academics, but Todd was able to explain things to him where he could understand. The few times I met Todd I was very impressed, he is a very kind and patient and encouraging person which I appreciated. I would highly recommend him.
