Everything in the world today involves a certain amount of math. Understanding math is extremely important and helpful in both our personal and professional lives. As a tutor my goal is to help build a solid foundation in mathematics for my students so that they can go on to be successful in whatever their futures' may hold.
I have spent most of my life in Colorado. My passions include skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, golf, tennis, and basically anything that allows me to be outdoors. I have a Bachelors of Science in Petroleum Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. This degree provided my with a great understanding of both lower and upper level mathematics. After getting this degree I moved to Wyoming to work for an oil and gas company. I then moved back to Colorado to pursue my masters degree and am currently attending the University of Colorado Denver to get a masters in Business Analytics. This degree consists of using mathematical analysis to create computer models that can find and fix business issues.
In my personal experience from getting taught throughout high school and college, the best way to learn math is to go through practice problems or homework problems one on one or in small groups with a teacher. This is my starting approach when teaching math. It allows the student to work through a problem on their own first, in order to see what they already know and what they need help with. Then I work through the problem with them step-by-step with the goal of teaching the reasoning behind the math rather than just the answer to that particular problem.
I have very flexible availability most days of the week and can travel to students or meet them online. My rate is $40/hour. If we schedule a session and I am unable to meet your tutoring needs there will of course be no charge for you. Please contact me for more information!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.
