About Duncan

Since I was young, I've always loved to help my classmates out. In math, English, science and history I always tried to do what I could to express to my peers concepts or facts in a simple and clear way that didn't skim over topics. I found that helping people out not only brought me satisfaction, but also helped me to understand topics better. I often think that when concepts are communicated in class, without a personalized level to the explanation, much can be lost to the student due to the manner in which the concept is explained or a lack of engagement from the teacher. Especially in math, in which I think an underlying hold on concepts is necessary for success and comprehension, there is often a lack of clear conceptual communication.

I've found that each person I've helped often needs explanations tailored specifically to them in order for them to fully grasp ideas and that I am skilled at this. I truly love expressing ideas to people and tutoring a great fit for that. I'm an undergraduate pure math student at UC Berkeley and am currently taking upper division math courses. I can cover SAT/ACT math, calculus (single and multivariable), all other forms of high school math, discrete math and linear algebra. I'm a highly successful student academically. I excelled throughout high school and got a perfect Reading SAT score and nearly perfect Math SAT score. I am currently about to start taking upper division math classes at Berkeley and am very excited to do so. I look forward to helping you out!
