Effective Mathematics/Statistics Tutor
Effective Mathematics/Statistics Tutor
I have tutored and studied, at a graduate level, a broad range of math topics focusing on calculus and statistics. I have found math tutoring to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Many students report that they do not like math and/or are not good at math. Many of the people I have tutored have experienced success in math for the first time and that success was all they needed to change their mind, at least somewhat, on both counts. I love math, and it is very rewarding...
I have tutored and studied, at a graduate level, a broad range of math topics focusing on calculus and statistics. I have found math tutoring to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Many students report that they do not like math and/or are not good at math. Many of the people I have tutored have experienced success in math for the first time and that success was all they needed to change their mind, at least somewhat, on both counts. I love math, and it is very rewarding to see the shift in attitude about math that comes with a new level of success. It can be life changing.
Success in math tutoring requires three things: providing a clear explanation, participating in patient back and forth to insure understanding, and encouraging the student to do the work to cement the subtleties of the material. I focus my efforts in all three areas.
I have arranged my schedule to allow for as much flexibility as possible to schedule tutoring for my students. I would very much like to hear from you if you are looking for the help you or your student needs to be successful in your mathematical pursuits.
Patient and thorough tutor.
Went to Neil for over 2 months for Business Calculus. He was able to expand on the concepts and break each down to create a deeper understanding of concepts. We covered derivatives, integration, chain rule, integration by substitution, optimization, business functions, product/quotient rule, and all the necessary components of these. He took me from a C to an A in the course. Very kind, friendly and flexible. Best experience with a tutor I have had. Look no further he’s the tutor you want!!!!Tracey, 18 lessons with Neil
Patient tutor who knows statistics well!
I met up with Neil for help with statistics. It had been 8 years since I took a math class and he was able to make it a lot easier to grasp. Neil is patient and helped me get an overall good understanding of the lesson and made it fun at the same time. Highly recommend!!!Chris, 1 lesson with Neil
Neil is the best tutor! I learned more from him in the first 20 minutes of our first tutoring session than I did in the entire 2 months of lecture in my Master's Program Statistics class. Neil is so patient and kind, and really has helped me grasp the relevance and purpose behind what I am learning, making Statistics an enjoyable subject. Time flies when I am being tutored by Neil because he has such a great attitude and kind disposition, I actually have some fun during our tutoring. If you are struggling with Statistics, do yourself a favor and setup an appointment with Neil! Your grade will thank you later!!Allison, 3 lessons with Neil

Neil is a wonderful tutor! My daughter is currently taking lessons. He has a deep understanding of the vast majority of Calculus as well as what information is fundamental to begin with which my daughter found to be particularly helpful. In addition to that, he is effective at transferring such knowledge through diagrams and explanations. Thank you NeilEric, 2 lessons with Neil
Great Math Tutor
My college freshman son was having trouble with Stats and after making a hard decision on who to hire for tutoring, I went with Neil. He responded to all my questions and made me feel comfortable that he could help. Well I got a call after my son's first tutor session raving about how terrific Neil is. So glad I made the right decision on which tutor to hire.Lisa, 2 lessons with Neil

Neil was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions. He was able to teach me different methods and made me work out the problems which made me understand them.Caleb, 12 lessons with Neil
Pre-calc patient tutor
Neil worked with my daughter on Pre-calculus. He was very patient and explained everything thoroughly. He is very knowledgeable on the subject. She feels more confident in class and does well on her tests.Karen, 6 lessons with Neil
Patient and very helpful!
After my first lesson with Neil, I felt way more confident in my statistics class. He was able to show me a new approach to solving a problem that made sense. He took the time to explain concepts before moving on to the next section. Neil helped me understand a spreadsheet and how to use my graphing calculator. Will be signing up for more sessions!Abby, 1 lesson with Neil
