I have been tutoring on Wyzant since June of this year, and I have 7 years of professional math experience. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Mathematics - Secondary Education and a minor in Theatre Arts. I received academic excellence awards for both Teacher Education and Mathematics. While at UNC I worked as a math tutor for several years and loved it. I tutored Calculus, Algebra, Trig, Geometry, Elementary Education Math Methods, and many other topics. My ultimate goal as a tutor is to do a good enough job so that you won't need me anymore.
Here are some samples of the feedback I received on student evaluations while at the college: "Lee is really helpful in every way possible. If you don't understand something he will go back through it until you understand." - "Lee is an amazing tutor and would recommend him to anyone that needs math help."
For the past 4 years I have taught Common Core Math at the middle school level, but have taught in high school and college settings as well. I currently hold a Master of Science degree in Educational Administration and am pursuing a career as an Assistant Principal.
I am a passionate educator and although I am new to Wyzant's platform, I have a great deal of experience as a tutor and as a classroom teacher. I am really excited to get back to working one-on-one with students needing help with math! Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to schedule a tutoring session.

Terrific tutor for algebra
Lee has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra I on a weekly basis for the past three months. We are so happy that we found Lee! Our daughter hit the point in math, particularly after nearly a year of online learning, where she needed some guidance on some key concepts, needed a little extra time on some of her work, and also needed the emotional boost of feeling that she can "get" math and feel some praise for getting it---maybe a boost of math confidence. Lee has been a perfect fit in working with our daughter. He comes prepared for each session, clearly understanding the curriculum and anticipating hurdles that our daughter might have as she starts a new topic. He has done a mix of review and preview. Our daughter loves the previewing of new topics, as she can go into a class feeling like she already understands the math. The best part for us as parents is that our daughter looks forward to Monday night tutoring. She likes working with Lee, who has a very upbeat, positive, warm, calm manner. And our daughter keeps telling us he makes math fun. What has been most impressive is that Lee is an extremely effective tutor even when our daughter works with him entirely remotely---two time zones away. We very much hope to continue to work with Lee---even after the pandemic is over.Christopher , 19 lessons with Lee

focused, patient, and very supportive!
Lee is a fantastic tutor! I was struggling with a pre algebra concept, and Lee was incredibly quick to check in to make sure if a method was working or not. He was incredibly patient in helping me find an idea that "clicked" and helped me grasp the concept; adapting to using my own ideas and introducing me to visuals quickly if it seemed an idea wasn't working. Lee created a supportive environment for me to feel comfortable going over concepts and asking lots of questions, or expressing my thoughts on the topic! Lee is great at switching on a dime and working from your thought process. Lee is very adaptable, intelligent in method, and patient. His experience shows. I definitely recommend him!Elle, 1 lesson with Lee
