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!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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,

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!

I have helped several students prepare for the ASVAB. I am a math tutor, so generally students come to me to get help with the math-related portions, but I have helped students with all sections. We will use a formula of looking at several practice tests and studying what techniques work for answering entire families of questions. I can help you improve your score!

Thad is the best discrete math tutor. Hands down.

Thad has a great way of explaining the material. I am simply NOT a math person. Thad makes the topics accessible and fun. I never thought I would get through my discrete mathematics course, but with Thad... I'm well on my way to passing. Thanks Thad! 🙏 HIGHLY recommended! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

JONATHAN, 12 lessons with Thad

Very Helpful!

Thad helped Katelyn to understand the problem they were trying to solve; she is looking forward to the next tutoring session.

Tiffani, 4 lessons with Thad

Stress Relieved!

Thad was able to fit us in at the last minute and work with my high school senior who has been having a tough time with AP Calc. After this first online lesson, I could tell he felt a lot better about an upcoming exam. He said Thad was patient, and was able to jump right in with instruction where my son needed the help (even without a preview). My son is looking forward to his next lesson with Thad. Thanks for coming to the rescue!

Kristen, 3 lessons with Thad

Very Knowledgeable, and gives helpful, constructive feedback.

Thad is a skilled subject expert in Discrete Math. His tutoring method is very effective and easy to grasp. I was able to get a lot questions covered with Thad in just two sessions. Kudos to Thad !!

Jessica, 17 lessons with Thad

Patient and Detailed tutor

Thad was an amazing tutor for my discrete structures course. He was very knowledgeable about each topic and had an amazing way of explaining everything through stories. I would definitely recommend him if you are studying any math course as he is great at making complicated topics sound simple.

Sakshi -Ritvik, 11 lessons with Thad

Very knowledgeable and efficient!

Thad not only helped me with describing some pseudocode and a derangement (type of permutation) problem, he did it efficiently and professionally. Recommend him highly for anyone taking college compsci math!!

Kelly, 1 lesson with Thad

Great teacher with awesome examples

Thad was great! We went over my homework assignment, and it was helpful to see his approaches. His explanations of theoretical concerts were insightful and helped me better understand the material.

Anna, 3 lessons with Thad

Great Teacher!!!

Had 7 + lessons with Thad on Discrete Math. Very happy I found him on Wyzant. Highly recommend him for a tutor. Every minute of Thad’s lesson really worth it. Thank you very much Thad!!!!

Olga, 8 lessons with Thad

knowledgeable and friendly

thank you Thad. He helped me think through problems aloud which really helps my comprehension. He was knowledgeable about discrete math and had outside resources to assist me. Would recommend
