About Duncan


Bio

Over the past seven 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 math, Calculus, and Statistics courses (including applied statistics courses often included in on-line B.A. programs). Also, (since it's roll-out three years ago), I've been working with and become familiar with Common Core curriculum (Integrated...

Over the past seven 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 math, Calculus, and Statistics courses (including applied statistics courses often included in on-line B.A. programs). Also, (since it's roll-out three years ago), I've been working with and become familiar with Common Core curriculum (Integrated Math).

I earned a B.S. in Mathematics from UC Davis, have extensive experience working in Public Engineering/Construction, and taught HS math.

I've found that most students have two basic issues to some degree:

1. They are struggling with and/or are looking to improve their understanding of subject-matter.
2. They don't have well-developed academic fluency. That is, they don't know how to apply themselves independently to address issue #1.

I work with students to help them in both areas. I believe it is important for students to not only increase their subject matter proficiency and skills; I work with students to help them become better students overall.

Typically, I will see a student weekly (in some cases, twice weekly) for a short period or over the course of an entire school term. I've had students that I see for only a few sessions (say for help with a particular assignment or to prepare for an exam). I've had students that I've seen throughout their High School career through all of their math classes.

I do work with adult students in all contexts (Junior College, University, on-line courses, test preparation, etc) for varying periods.

With all students, my first question is about identifying the goals of the student-tutor relationship. Then we develop a plan for achieving these goals; this second step involves looking at the student's situation: grades, recent assignments, structure of coursework, student's work product, etc. In short, we get organized. In this process I can quickly identify the areas that a student should prioritize and recommend discrete steps to advance towards their goals.

I've found that tutoring is typically focused on conceptual understanding, skill development, and process (clear and organized work product). During sessions I also help with homework, preparation for exams, and reviewing past material, as needed.

Candid communication is vital in all of my tutoring relationships, and if we work together you will get calls and texts from me and I will welcome the same. This includes parents for High School students; maintaining candid dialog with parents is something I take seriously.

I am available to see students M-F (anytime) and Saturday mornings. I try to schedule HS students 3-5, 5-7, or 7-9 on weekday evenings. This allows for 90 minutes of instruction and time for me to travel between appointments. I do my best to be flexible, and I prioritize students that make and keep regular appointments.

I look forward to discussing your tutoring needs! Please email with any questions.

Thank you.

Duncan M.

Statistics

Statistics

No sub-discipline of mathematics seems to strike more fear into students than Statistics - NORMALCY, HYPOTHESIS TESTING, AND DISPERSION! oh my. Fear not! Fundamental Statistics, Introduction to Statistics, Elementary Statistics are all names for a first course in Probability and Statistics. This course is often taken as a lower division or, perhaps, a widely offered upper division college course. It may even be offered as an Advanced Placement course in high school. Whatever the course name, a comprehensive intro to Stat class will cover the same basic principles - in basically the same order! It's a tough class for sure; but not because the concepts are unwieldy. It's tough because it's new, and with some perseverance and an open mind you can be stat proficient! Students also work with me on any number of other Statistics courses: Business Statistics, Statistics for Nursing, Applied Statistics, BioStatistics, Research Design projects, etc.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

The word Algebra is Arabic in origin and refers to a system of rules used in mathematics. I tutor all levels of Elementary Algebra (Algebra I, Algebra II, and Pre-Calculus). Elementary Algebra is the "rules of the road" for all of our work in Calculus and calculations related to the sciences. It's fundamental and vital to understanding in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields. Algebra I is about learning **basic** skills beyond Arithmetic. It's math boot camp and we do a lot of exercises here. We learn how to be academic **and** we learn Algebra. Algebra I or Algebra II are where otherwise successful and capable students run astray. This is where I see a lot of students, for the first time, faced with a subject that requires discipline and investment of time.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

First read my Qualifications for Algebra I. Algebra II starts with an extensive review and more rigorous treatment of Algebra I. Then we continue with skill development. There is lots of exercise, but Algebra II gets more 'colorful' and interesting than the basics in Algebra I. Algebra I or Algebra II are where otherwise successful and capable students run astray. Here is where I see a lot of students, for the first time, faced with a subject that requires discipline and investment of time.
Calculus,

Calculus

Unlike most tutors, I am competent and current in all three semesters of College Calculus. In addition to expertise in high school Calculus - AB and BC, I work with College students in all topics over the standard three semester (four quarter) Calculus series. Calculus is the Mathematical study of change. Though we are introduced to simple change in Algebra, most of science's problems are beyond the scope of Algebra. Calculus gives us the tools to study diverse processes that change over time and/or location. Most students I encounter are enrolled in High School AP Calculus courses or lower-division Calculus at a college or university as part of a math requirement for a science major. I am well-versed in the structure and content of the HS AP Calculus Exams as well as the HS and college Calculus curricula. As a Mathematics undergraduate at UC Davis, I earned A grades throughout the lower and upper division Calculus courses (6 courses total).
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry here refers to High School Geometry. The study of shapes and their properties. In this course, students are expected to gain logic and reasoning skills in a mathematical arena. Geometry is in one sense a 'side-trip' in the mathematics progression; but it is a valuable and necessary experience that develops critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in a more spatial and less analytical way. Often students that struggle in Algebra will find Geometry refreshingly accessible... and vice-versa. However, contemporary math curricula blend elements of Algebra throughout Geometry (in part to keep Algebra skills sharp between Algebra I and II).
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is the 'final wrap-up' of Algebra necessary for success with Calculus. It includes all of the material covered in prior Elementary Algebra courses (Algebras I and II) as well as extensive treatments of Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Functions, with introductions to Continuity and Limits. The rigor of Pre-Calculus courses is greater than previous mathematics courses and is often near the level of many Calculus courses. It requires a greater level of discipline and work than do the Elementary Algebras and Trigonometry courses.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I tutor students preparing for diverse exams: ASVAB, ACT, SAT, SSAT, GRE, CAHSEE, GED, etc. My strategy is to work from the best sample test materials available. All of the major standardized exams have materials available which clearly define the subject matter covered. Using these materials students can focus their time and energy efficiently. In most cases, working with these materials quickly highlights strengths and weaknesses. The work then becomes about building skill and confidence over the **entire** subject matter covered on the exam. Often exam preparation/study is done independently (out of a classroom setting) and a tutoring is about providing structure and support to ensure the students make progress and don't falter.

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

I am well versed in the fundamentals of Statistics and research methods involving, Study Design, ANOVA, and Linear Regression. I learned these skills through upper division study in my career at UC Davis, and by tutoring several students in upper-division and master's level Stat courses.

Probability,

Probability

Typically students studying Probability do so as part of general Introductory Statistics course. Unlike most sections of Statistics, Probability is very much like other Mathematics subjects students are familiar with (namely Elementary Algebra, Finite Math, etc.). It relies heavily on Algebraic rules and is largely computational. Success here is largely dependent on working problems applying the rules of counting. There are some novel mathematical concepts here that one must master to succeed in this mostly accessible subject area.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry... literally the study of Triangles. But it's so much more. We quickly use the relationships found within triangles to define new functions and we have a discrete branch of Mathematics. Trigonometric principles and features abound in and are vital to the study of Calculus. It is a major part of Pre-Calculus courses and it is also still offered as a stand-alone course in High Schools. A fun subject for many students as it combines Algebra with periodic functions and novel problem-solving techniques.

My son liked him a lot

It was our first time having a Math tutor for my son. We didn't know what to expect and was hoping for a good fit. Duncan was easy-going and made my son feel comfortable with his teaching style. My son liked Duncan a lot and wanted to have another session immediately, but he was already booked up. We're looking forward to next week.

Jamie, 8 lessons with Duncan

Amazing Calculus tutor

An amazing tutor for my son. He connects very well with him. Would highly recommend him with no hesitation.

Aslam, 31 lessons with Duncan

Knowledgeable and Assertive

Duncan was knowledgeable and assertive in helping my daughter with her high school IM3 math course. He is professional and proactive. I would highly recommend him.

Michelle, 2 lessons with Duncan

Great confidence builder

Duncan gives my daughter that boost of confidence in her classes. She needed that little one-on-one help to really make sure she grasped the concepts. It has really helped and she gets along very well with him.

Nicole, 15 lessons with Duncan

Excellent tutor

My son took Cal1 and failed twice. With Duncan’s help, he got an A in his 3rd Cal1 class. Duncan went through exercises with my son and make sure he understands the concept. Duncan is patient and flexible. I highly recommend Duncan if you need a math tutor.

Jessie, 23 lessons with Duncan

Great experience

Duncan is really helping our son polish his PreCalc skills. Duncan has been flexible in meeting time which works great for sons schedule. Recommended for high school precalc.

Josie, 6 lessons with Duncan

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!

Andrea, 7 lessons with Duncan

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.

Danielle, 9 lessons with Duncan

Knowledgeable and easy to work with

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.
