About Terrence


Bio

Hello, I'm Terrence!

I received a 4.0 GPA and a Math Education degree from the U. of Kentucky in 2009. I graduated in 3.5 years, scored a perfect 800 on the Math portion of the GRE, worked as a Teacher's Assistant (TA) for Calculus I, and received the Kentucky Mathematician of the year award in 2008. (I am the sharpest spoon!) I also passed the first Actuary Exam (Probability).

I finished 2019 at the 99.96 percentile of Wzyant tutors. This made me one of the top 10 most active tutors on...

Hello, I'm Terrence!

I received a 4.0 GPA and a Math Education degree from the U. of Kentucky in 2009. I graduated in 3.5 years, scored a perfect 800 on the Math portion of the GRE, worked as a Teacher's Assistant (TA) for Calculus I, and received the Kentucky Mathematician of the year award in 2008. (I am the sharpest spoon!) I also passed the first Actuary Exam (Probability).

I finished 2019 at the 99.96 percentile of Wzyant tutors. This made me one of the top 10 most active tutors on Wyzant out of a total of 17,575 tutors! Also, I spent 38% of my tutoring time doing all levels of Calculus.

From 2007 to '11, I owned and operated my own tutoring business full-time. I regularly tutored a wide variety of students, ranging from elementary schoolers to upperclassmen Engineering majors to personalized test prep (ACT, SAT, GRE).

I started tutoring online in 2015 (discovered Wyzant in October 2017), and I am genuinely obsessed.

My love for teaching/Math is genetic (Mother is retired Elementary teacher, Father is retired Math/Physics teacher, his Mother was a teacher/librarian), but it was accelerated when my loving parents arranged 1:1 advanced tutoring for me starting in first grade.

Because of my vast experience learning and teaching, I'm very confident I can help ANYONE quickly gain a MUCH better understanding of their Math material. Also, we may possibly have FUN!

A little about my life outside tutoring:

From 2011-'15, I worked in the solar energy industry (sales, project management, customer service). Although I love and respect the power of the Sun, I REALLY missed tutoring. Sales can be a dog-eat-dog world, and I missed the youthful and curious energy of students. (My favorite Einstein quote: 'I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.')

I'm extremely grateful to be tutoring again, and these 4 years provided me invaluable experience as a listener. (My wife, Lizzie, may disagree.)

Because of this, I'm also confident in my ability to relate to each student. I truly believe I can help ANY student UNDERSTAND Math WHILE having fun!

Statistics is my favorite Math class. While many people complain about "never needing to know this stuff in the real world", Statistics is used everyday in all walks of life. I truly enjoy helping others with AP Statistics, and I've tutored over 20 students in AP Stats.

I have tutored Calculus for over 500 hours! I was a Teacher's Assistant for Calculus I at UK, where I led 20 person recitations for 2 years. I have tutored over 40 students in Calculus, including Engineering majors in Calculus I, II, and III. I earned an A+ in Calculus I, II, III, and IV, which led me to be named the Kentucky Mathematician of the year for 2008. If you can't tell already, I absolutely love Calculus, and I love helping others UNDERSTAND Calculus.

Great instructor

Terrence really knows his stuff and does a very good job explaining the concepts. Will for sure use him again as the need arises.

Matthew, 2 lessons with Terrence

Knowledgeable, Friendly, Enthusiastic

Terrence has been tutoring my son on Algebra 2. Terrence is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and patient. My son has learned very much, done well in his class, and is excited to continue working with him.

Experience & Excellent Tutor!

I couldn’t be happier with the tutoring Terrance provided to my daughter. I notice she was smiling and appeared calm the entire session. Her last tutoring session she prepared for a test with him she scored a 18.5 out of 19. We look forward to her doing as well with the next test. Terrance is excellent!

Dawn, 3 lessons with Terrence

Excellent

Terrence is very knowledgeable when it comes statistics. Well his price is a little higher than other tutors… He is worth every penny! He’s very good at explaining information clearly and accurately and he will help you prepare for your exams so that you do extremely well! I highly recommend him.

David , 8 lessons with Terrence

Great tutor

Terrence helped me greatly with Calc 1. He is very patient and will show you everything step by step. Terrence has good technics and tips that will help you later on.

Gabriela , 1 lesson with Terrence

Excellent tutor!

Terrence is very helpful! He helps think through and solve what at first looks like a complicated problem and turns out to be fairly straightforward. He explains material in a way that is easy to understand and follow. Terrence makes sure that you master what you are working on.

Elena, 32 lessons with Terrence

Best tutor ever!

I’ve been working with Terry since my sophomore year and I would not have passed any of my math classes since if it was not for him. He explains any math concept I have questions on so well and is very patient. He also helps me with my SAT math questions and I always leave our sessions feeling SO much better about my understanding. Terry doesn’t just answer your questions, but he makes sure you understand the answers by creating his own similar scenarios and questions, which is so helpful! I have never been good at math and never particularly liked it, but I have never felt better about math in my entire life! Terry rocks!

Knowledgeable and patient

Terrence really knows his stuff! I was most impressed by his ability to translate his knowledge into the way my course is structured. He’s helping to break down the concepts and give tangible takeaways.

Mary, 10 lessons with Terrence

Super smart, funny, and patient!!!

Just earned 100 percent on my first test. Thank you, Terrence. You were meant to be a teacher. You make learning fun. You make an awful subject entertaining. Thank you!!

Motivating and clear instruction

Terrence is a remarkable tutor. Terrence works with both of my daughters on a weekly basis (6th grade and 10th grade) and I don’t know what we’d do without him. He is kind, patient and explains math in a way that makes it easy, understandable and even fun. My 6th grade daughter, who once struggled in math, has made incredible improvements and even enjoys math now. I highly recommend Terrence for all levels of math, as well as math SAT prep.
