Dear Prospective Students and Parents,

The summer is a great time to review the previous year's material and prepare for next year. Get ready to learn quickly, have fun, and gain confidence in your ability to do math and raise your grades too!

In addition to SAT and ACT, I tutor for all high school math subjects from pre-algebra to AP calculus and IB Mathematics. I've helped to significantly improve students' scores and grades (as much as from an F to an A) in high school math subjects for more than four years now. I also offer sessions to undergraduate students taking any subject up to differential equations.

I will come to your home or to a public venue (e.g. a library or coffee shop), wherever is more comfortable and convenient for your learning. My hours are also very flexible, including a wide mix of days, evenings, nights and weekends (during the school year).

I truly believe that math can be fun and easy if it's broken down for you in a way that you can comprehend it. If you just need a tune-up, we can skip straight to the nuts and bolts. I'm very passionate about helping students succeed in math, because I believe it is the foundation of having a good set of life skills.

I graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in economics and mathematics. There I tutored calculus to several students. Post-undergraduate, I began as a volunteer group tutor before becoming a private full-time one-on-one tutor. I enjoy every minute of it, and it's been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far.

I value a student's desire to learn and to commit to having a good educational relationship. Being open about your needs, concerns, and things that are going well is very helpful to improving your math skills. My promise is to be supportive and to ensure that you have the best chance to do well.

Yours in math,

Dexter

Differential Equations

I took Differential Equations as an undergraduate during a semester exchange program. I received an "A+" in the course and also received honors as the top student in this course. I informally tutored students during the course, but never for a company. I feel very qualified to tutor this subject. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Economics and Mathematics.

Ultimate Professional

Dexter is the ultimate professional. His communication and follow up is spot on and sincerely appreciated. He definitely understands the financial and time commitment that are being invested. He comes in prepared; he leaves assignments prior to the next meeting; and he delivers a summary and status after each meeting. Additionally, I spoke with Dexter early on about my son's laid back attitude and lacking comprehension of the importance of good grades, good study habits, etc. in meeting bigger life goals (top college, good job, etc.). Dexter clearly understands and takes seriously his role as a mentor to young students. I am extremely pleased thus far and hope that Dexter will remain a resource for us for a long time to come.

Very thorough and extremely patient

Dexter is the perfect tutor for our two seniors. After the first visit with my daughters he provided an accurate assessment of their strengths and weaknesses and laid out a strategy. We also gave him a near impossible task of increasing Math SAT scores - which he exceeded. Even after the SATs ended we are still working with Dexter weekly on Pre-Cal and my daughter would not have it any other way. Our one regret is that we didn't find Dexter sooner! We highly recommend Dexter for all children, even those with learning differences.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much, Audrey, for the opportunity to continue working with your daughter! It's rare to find students who take initiative and want to do better always. I'm really looking forward to the next five months. You and your husband really make me feel like a part of their journey to succeed, and I'm going to miss that after June!

Very patient has really helped to build my sons confidence

Dexter is a wonderfully thoughtfully and gifted tutor. He has helped my son achieve better grades in his IB standard level maths and this has lead to an all round improvement in his grades for his other IB subjects as his confidence has improved. He is patient and methodical and shows my son exactly what he needs to do to gain the most points when answering questions.

Fiona, 36 lessons with Dexter
Tutor responded:

Students like your son challenge me to always stay on "top of my game!" He's a thinker, and it's been exciting to help him hone that quality into making math more fun, less fearsome, ad easier to learn for himself. He's becoming a more independent mathematical thinker, which puts a huge smile on my face. I look forward to working with him the next five months. He's a joy to work with! Thank you!

Exceeded Expectations

Dexter far exceeded our expectations during the first session with our son! We look forward to a productive and rewarding relationship and keeping our son on track!

Tina, 2 lessons with Dexter

I'm so pleased.

My son has met with Dexter a couple of times and now insists that he is understanding Geometry. My son is committed to this tutor and expects to improve his grade. Dexter explains the problems in relatable terms and he is positive and enthusiastic about what he does. He is a value to us. You are the best help Dext.

Very patient, Great tutor Algebra

Where do I start, Dexter is very helpful, flexible, and very patient. I haven't seen math besides basic stuff since 2006 and for lack of better words I hate math. I told him this and he was not afraid to tackle my fears, he asked me basic information and without me knowing was able to see my struggles by simply listening to my questions and answers. Easy to get in contact with whether its email he WILL respond within hours, cell phone you can text which is a plus. His patients is awesome with my constant questions and some were the same questions he did not seem at one point frustrated, instead he found different ways to explain the problems (drawing pictures and examples). He is able to explain them in many ways even applying our daily lives. I have a very busy schedule a father of three and a husband with a full time job and a pitbull puppy of 9 weeks so how busy do I sound. Well Dexter said "no problem" he worked with me to find that good time for me, I wanted to quit instead he said lets do longer sessions and knock this stuff out. Now for me that works but for many maybe not, my point is that he can adjust to your schedule or work with you to find that good schedule. What is very good Dexter can adjust to where your knowledge is, give Dexter a time and place with coffee and rest assure he will do his best to accommodate you, Dexter is a A++ tutor whom I highly recommend.
