No Nonsense Math and Statistics Tutor For HS and Adult Students
Over the past five years I've worked with hundreds of students in math and statistics courses. Subject matter ranges from Pre-Algebra through Calculus, Introduction/Elementary Statistics, AP and Honors HS math and statistics courses, and college (lower division) math, calculus, and statistics courses (including applied statistics courses often included in on-line B.A. programs).
I've found that most students have two basic issues to some degree:
1. They are struggling with or are looking to...

Great Tutor!!!
In efforts to preserve my GPA, I previously withdrew, twice, from Statistics for Social Sciences due to failing grades. I found WyzAnt and Duncan. With Duncan’s tutoring, I went from two failed attempts to a strong A with a 96% and preservation of my overall GPA. I am now working with Duncan in the next level of statistics, Statistics for Psychology. I received an A, 93%, for my first homework packet and have the confidence I will close this academic degree with another A, due to Duncan’s soft skills and dedication. He possesses the ability to meet his students in their own communication style that helps them reach understanding. Duncan also possesses the skill of observation, allowing him to pinpoint areas where you are weak to assist in understanding and excelling process. Duncan is also flexible with scheduling with proper notice, and is very easy to work with. His rates are realistic and reasonable for most, to include college students on their own. I highly recommend Duncan as a great tutor who will assist you in going far in your pursuit of higher education.

Great patient tutor
I was having trouble with graphing and writing in slope intercept form. After one session I was able to understand and grasp what he was teaching me. He was patient because it took awhile for me to grasp what he was explaining. Looking forward to next session and learning more!

Knowledgeable and thorough tutor
Over the several weeks Duncan has been working with my son on IM1, I have noticed an increase in my son’s confidence as well as test scores. Duncan has not only helped with current math, he has pinpointed certain weaknesses in previous areas of math and has my son working on those as well to help him all around.

Duncan helped our 14 year old daughter with Integrated Math 1. He was easy for her to talk to, knowledgeable and best of all she came out feeling more confident. We look forward to having another session with Duncan.

Very Knowledgeable
I was taking Elementary Statistics (math 13) online at Sierra College. The learning style was all online and the lectures were about 20+ years old. I did pretty poorly the first part of the semester and definitely needed a tutor. I worked with Duncan for 13 sessions and he was great! We met and he was willing to go over past sections with me and basically start from scratch half way through the semester. Each session he would explain the concept to me and then go over homework and help me through all my questions, no matter how many times he had to explain the concept over and over again. He was very patient and flexible about scheduling around school. I would highly recommend working with Duncan.

Great tutor.
I really liked how Duncan did all of my problems on his own while I did mine on my own. Then he would stop and go over the problem with me. He also encouraged me to get a solid foundation in the basic concepts first before trying to do more advanced problems. If I take my time and work steadily and slowly, I will do fine in precalculus. I hope I can work with him again.

Very Knowledgeable and Helpful
Duncan is extremely knowledgeable in the math department and he is really good at being patient and bringing it to a level you can understand. He has helped me a lot in actually learning the material.

Knowledgeable and Prompt tutor!
Yesterday was my first tutoring session with Duncan. He is helping me prepare for the GRE. Our first lesson went great! He really showed me what to expect and some suggestions on how to help myself feel a little more at ease about the exam. He is extremely smart with the quantitative section which is great because that is not my strong suit at the moment. We did some practice problems and I noticed that I started catching on with the concepts towards the end of our session. This really showed me that the way he was explaining things to me was clicking. He suggested for me to work on a a few sections of more practice problems on my own and I have already noticed that I knew how to incorporate the concepts he taught me into them! We have already schedule another tutoring session for next week and I can wait to see how much I will progress!

Great tutor!!
I'm currently taking business statistics at Sac State and I was struggling to understand the concepts. I had two different tutors but I still wasn't understanding. I finally met with Duncan and he really explained things in a way that I could understand. It's like a light bulb goes on every time he explains the different concepts. I'm very fortunate to work with him!

Great tutor!
Duncan has been a great tutor. I don't think I would survive my statistics class without him. He is able to break down the information in a way that I can understand.
