About Scott


Bio

Although I graduated in Mechanical Engineering Tech, I worked in Civil Engineering for nearly 15 years before recently deciding to become an instuctor. I have now began using my tutoring experience towards instructing various subjects as well as teaching high school common core integrated math which is mostly algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics.

Helping others is more rewarding to me than the money.

Patient and honest

Scott reviews homework and better prepared our son for his test. He also previewed the next chapters material. Exactly what our son needed. Scott was a huge help!

Beth, 3 lessons with Scott

Patient and knowledgeable.

Challenges the student with problems of increasing level of difficulty. Helps ensure that my daughter revises what she knows and then moves on to the next lesson. Patient and knowledgeable.

Raghu, 71 lessons with Scott

Great Tutor 100% Recommend

Great tutor, he's very knowledgeable on the subject and knows it inside and out. Not only does he help you overcome certain problems, he shows you a methodical route to become a master at the concept. I'm looking forward to our next lesson and taking on Honors Pre-Calc.

Deven, 1 lesson with Scott

GREAT!

Truly a great tutor! This guy is awesome. He cleared up what I did not know for me... presented the material in an easy, understandable way.

Cesar, 7 lessons with Scott

Great teacher

Scott is great, easy to understand from and he is very patient.He knows his stuff and he is very friendly

Mazin, 1 lesson with Scott

Very helpful

We worked on a lot today we got through the area of a triangle and a circle and made me understand Pythagorean theorem better and using sine cosines and tangent.

Oscar, 2 lessons with Scott

Encouraging independence and confidence in math.

Great at leading through the maze of how to solve the math problem. Works along side the student, rather than handing out answers. Good report with teens.

Theresa, 5 lessons with Scott

Knowledgeable Tutor

Often times in math it is the details that cause major chaos in assignments. Scott helped me understand where my mistakes were happening. Very informative, great demeanor, and uses good logic and reasoning. He is privilege to work with and will do great things as he furthers in is career. Thank you.

Elias, 1 lesson with Scott

Caring tutor

Scott is a caring tutor who wants student to feel confident with the new skill taught, wants the student to master skill before moving to the next level. We reviewed elements of first lesson,learned how to open folder and save the information in it.
