About Nathan


Bio

I love helping students become confident, successful life-long learners, all within the scope of their specific classes. I have walked-the-walk and talked-the-talk from struggling through remedial placement to excelling in graduate course work. I not only understand math but have been in your shoes. I am patient while expecting students to always try their best. Mistakes are a normal part of the growing process.

I love helping students become confident, successful life-long learners, all within the scope of their specific classes. I have walked-the-walk and talked-the-talk from struggling through remedial placement to excelling in graduate course work. I not only understand math but have been in your shoes. I am patient while expecting students to always try their best. Mistakes are a normal part of the growing process.

I have experience as a nationally certified tutor, tutoring in high school and college, as well as volunteer tutoring of the GED math tests. I have also taught middle and high school mathematics and instructed college mathematics. I enjoy working with teenagers and adults of all ages. My tutoring and teaching experience includes elementary school to grandparents in age, as well as non-traditional students, and Veterans.

If both your homework and our sessions are online then I request that you print to PDF your assignment and email it to me before our session. For higher level classes (Calculus, Stats, etc) please do this at least one day (preferably two) in advance to make sure I have time to prepare specifically for you.

Additionally, I can supplement or substitute regular homework with specific and tailored lesson plans.

Shortly after each session, I will report our progress and my observations, including instructions for follow up.

I strongly recommend the use of the Wyzant app for easier communication and calendaring purposes.

I enjoy helping each student recognize that they are, in fact, capable of learning and succeeding in mathematics. I look forward to the opportunity to serve.

I do not tutor CMU/WCCC students in class levels that I at the time teach or students that I have taught in the past as I am employed as math faculty.

I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your math goals.

Excellent Calculus 3 Tutor

We tried to find several tutors prior, but none were able to help with her complicated material until Nathan. Nathan was very thorough and did a great job helping my daughter with her Calculus 3 homework. She will definitely be working with him again!!

Kristina, 1 lesson with Nathan

Trigonometry

Thank you very much Nathan for helping my son Jayce for the past year in Algebra and Trigonometry! You have done an amazing job! We both are very Thankful and we definitely will be using your help with Math again. We made the perfect choice when we found you! Thank you again!

Jennifer, 96 lessons with Nathan

Very helpful and knowledgeable

Nathan helped me understand some complex concepts in calculus 3. I will definitely use him again. He is very knowledgeable and was flexible in scheduling a lesson last minute.

Mike, 5 lessons with Nathan

Great!

My daughter got a lot out of this session. She works very well with this tutor. He was willing to change our appointment on short notice due to a scheduling conflict. 5 stars!

Above and Beyond

Nathan went above and beyond our expectations. He was pivotal in our daughter's success in her college statistics course. Highly recommend.

Kristen, 22 lessons with Nathan

Knowledgeable and patient

Nathan helped with R programming and he was excellent. I wish my instructor for my graduate program was as efficient in explaining and teaching at the same time.

Kevin , 1 lesson with Nathan

Very flexible

He has been willing to work with my son in the areas he especially needs increased understanding. Flexible and helpful. Readily able to work through technical issues to ensure learning occurs.

Amber, 33 lessons with Nathan

Excellent Math Help

My daughter was tutored by Nathan. He was patient and helped her understand concepts that she has struggled with for years. I would highly recommend him. He not only helped with SAT preparation but her math class issues as well.

Haley, 10 lessons with Nathan

Hear good things

Nathan goes in-depth with his instruction. My son likes that aspect, says Nathan really explains the lesson so my son walks away confident he got it.
