I have helped many students improve their study skills and test scores in this subject. I can help explain the topic in a way that makes sense, and I can help if earlier algebra skills are lacking.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is a vast subject that begins by building on top of algebra and trigonometry by introducing concepts such as limits and infinite series. It then introduces derivatives and later integration. After those concepts are mastered partial differentiation, multivariate integration, differential equations and differential operators are added. Calculus requires strong math skills in foundational math up through the level of trigonometry, and any holes or weaknesses in those areas need to be addressed.
Geometry,

Knowledgeable and Fun!

We prepared for an upcoming exam I had using Excel only. Steven was patient and able to answer any questions I had. He went through the practice exam with me and explained each answer. Definitely going to use him the next time! I went from not understanding anything to doing great on the exam!

My hero!

Steven really saved the day. I was dumb and procrastinated and waited until 4 days prior to the due date of my assignment. I selected instant book and he was the first one to help me. He's very knowledgeable and was patient with me. My second session he fit me in when he had a slight break and we were able to finish my assignment. He saved me because I really screwed up on one of the problems. Math is not my strong suit and this was for an online college class. I will definitely do another session for my last assignment for this class. Mahalo Steven!

Hi'ilani, 3 lessons with Steven

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Steven has helped me in understand how to solve logarithmic and exponential functions equation, differentiation, Rstudio and so on. We are still working together and he is great tutor and overall I like his patience and his flexibility to my schedule. You will be very happy because it is worthy to have him as your personal tutor.

Moussa, 3 lessons with Steven

Really enjoyed working with him.

Steven worked well with my son. He was able to help my son get through his homework with a better understanding of the assignment. He spent some extra time working with my son without billing for it.
