About Landon


Bio

I have long had a knack for tackling math, and over the past decade I have been helping students young and old learn to become more comfortable and confident with one of the scariest subjects around! From teaching in high schools to tutoring in homes, my professional experience ranges from elementary fractions to high school geometry to college entrance exams.

I have long had a knack for tackling math, and over the past decade I have been helping students young and old learn to become more comfortable and confident with one of the scariest subjects around! From teaching in high schools to tutoring in homes, my professional experience ranges from elementary fractions to high school geometry to college entrance exams.

While in high school, I took math to a competitive level through taking tests and becoming one of the best student mathematicians in the state. From this experience, I learned some of the best tips and tricks that make math easier and allowed me to solve problems more quickly - very useful for standardized tests (of which I obtained a perfect math score on both the SAT and GRE). I tutored college students while an undergraduate student myself, and after college, I started teaching in Seattle. While there, I worked with students representing dozens of nationalities, which allowed me to improve my teaching abilities and explain some of the most complex math concepts in the simplest of terms. My teaching career led me back to school to earn my Master's degree in Learning Sciences from Northwestern University, where I focused my research on the best math learning environments and principles for students of varying learning abilities.

I am often described as having one of the most laid back personalities, but I take teaching math seriously. I make it a priority to ensure my students understand lessons inside and out. I want learners to push themselves to ask for help but be encouraged in the fact that they are capable of discovering solutions. My goal as an educator is to make math less scary and hopefully more enjoyable for years to come!

My teaching style differs from student to student as I try to adapt to each specific individual. I look forward to hearing from you so we may discover together what will work best for you and your educational needs!

Baseball

I played baseball during my entire youth, through high school. I competed at the highest levels, representing my teams at state and national tournaments. I decided not to play in college in order to focus on my academic career, but I stayed involved and started coaching high school baseball. I was a utility player who excelled at nearly every position on the field and aim to teach players how to understand the game from all angles.

Reliable, knowledgeable, kind - great session!

Landon was very kind and easy going with my son. He was able to build rapport quickly and shared a lot of information in just two hours. We were very happy with Landon and will call on him again when my son is ready for more!
