About Doug

Greetings! I am passionate about helping you to make math make sense. I have been a professional teacher for over 30 years, teaching mathematics at middle and high schools and also teaching at colleges and universities preparing math teachers. My wife and I have recently moved to Gainesville, GA where I am teaching at Riverside Military Academy.

I love being an educator, particularly in the STEM fields! I love working with students one-on-one, sharing insights and experiences to help them make important connections and to tackle and overcome the difficulties of mathematics. I encourage students to develop enough understanding to be able to explain how to correctly carry out procedures, solve textbook problems, use mathematics to make real-world applications, prepare for exams, and use technology appropriately and productively. I can't wait to work with you to see how much we can do together.

I have become a great math tutor because I have a deep understanding of mathematics, an insightful understanding of what students find difficult in mathematics and how to make it less difficult, a wide knowledge of how mathematics is used authentically, and successful, long-term experience with thousands of students over the years.

Contact me. Ask for help developing the kind of understanding in mathematics that will make your teachers and friends take notice. Commit to doing what it takes to improve. I am excited about helping you become excited about your progress in mathematics!
