Aloha,

I am a professional mathematics tutor living in Hawaii. I have been tutoring since 2001. These days, I am focusing on Discrete Math. But I still enjoy working with students in all the other math subjects listed on my profile so please don't hesitate to reach out to me today.

I have a degree in Mathematics/Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University. I have been working as a mathematics tutor for more than fifteen years. I really enjoy it. The world of math contains some really cool things, the Mandelbrot set, Klein bottles, and Hilbert's hotel to name just a few. I like to introduce students to these and other similar, fun topics while tying them to their current classroom material. Understanding where one can go with math makes it much easier, even if we never venture there.

I started tutoring online several years ago and met students both online and in-person until recently when everything became virtual, so I am well-versed in navigating the challenges with online tutoring vs. traditional, face-to-face sessions. Honestly, there's not much difference. As long as I can see my student's face and hear their voice, I can tell if they are struggling or really 'getting it' and can act on it right away.

I can help students prepare for the math portions of exams including PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB, & GRE.

I worked with students as young as second grade and I've tutored grandparents. I can work with you, too!

I have been tutoring for 15+ years and have worked with every level of student. Algebra I has been one of the courses I have helped the most students with. I can help you too. I am fully trained and thoroughly knowledgeable. Contact me today!
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is not hard. It’s just another layer on top of arithmetic, algebra, trig, and so on. It’s amazing what you can do with Calculus and how everything fits together. I enjoy helping Calc students. I feel like we are speaking a foreign language that most people don’t understand. And that’s kinda fun!

Discrete Math

I took several discrete math courses in college (I have a B.S. in Mathematics/Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University). Topics like logic, logical operators, and combinatorics are some of my favorite topics to study and tutor students in. I have tutored several students who were taking discrete math courses and was able to help each one of them!
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I took several linear algebra courses in college. (I have a degree in Mathematics/Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University.) I am qualified to tutor this subject. I have been tutoring since 2003 and I like working with students of all ages. I am patient and understanding. Linear algebra, logic, and other "non-mathematical" math topics are my favorites!

Very good with giving examples and explaining step by step how to solve a problem. Very patient and highly knowledgeable. He has a way of knowing within the first few minutes what your learning style is!!

Mary, 2 lessons with Thad

Excelleant tutor

We want over the Sets and subsets section for Discrete math and Did review questions to prepare for my next exam. By the time we finished, I felt more confident in my abilities by the time finished and passed my exam after

Smart, patient calculus tutor

I had a calculus lesson with Thad and he was great! Super nice, knowledgeable and good at making complex things seem more simple. He was also really patient if I was having trouble understanding things.

9th grade algebra

Thad did an amazing job with my son in the online environment and made productive suggestions on how to make it better for follow on sessions. Online wouldn’t be my first choice, but Thad quelled my reservations. I couldn’t imagine it going better in person. He is certainly an excellent choice for academic support.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Thad is so patient and flexible with scheduling. He is knowledgeable in math and explain concepts very well. He is willing to find examples to make sure you understand what he's trying to teach you.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Thad

Awesome tutor!

My boy's are learning a lot and look forward to meeting with him. He is easy to understand and very knowledgeable. I recommend him to anyone who needs help in math. =)

Jeanette, 5 lessons with Thad

Amazing!

Thad helped me with Statistics and he is the best tutor. If you're considering it, give him a try. I have NEVER liked math, and am incredibly intimated by it. Thad's easy-going attitude and explanations were incredibly helpful. He is smart and makes math slightly less intimidating. 5/5

Jillian, 3 lessons with Thad
