I encourage my students to utilize different methods of working through a problem so they can gain a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts they are trying to learn. I specialize in all mathematical subject areas up to Linear Algebra. In High School, I tutored students individually for three years who were enrolled in the following math courses: Algebra 1, 2, and Pre-Calculus. Currently, as a Computer Science major, I tutor students enrolled in Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Linear Algebra. Additionally, I tutor students in Java programming. My tutoring sessions vary from student to student as I like to adapt to each student's learning needs. I am available for tutoring sessions Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
