About Damon


Bio

Hi, I'm Damon. I genuinely enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about math and view it as a mission to help improve math's reputation among the topics of study. I started tutoring as a math grad student working on my PhD, and continued on during and after my academic teaching. In many ways I prefer tutoring to teaching in a traditional classroom setting, because while tutoring I have the luxury of being able to respond specifically to a student’s concerns and craft my message for just one student...

Hi, I'm Damon. I genuinely enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about math and view it as a mission to help improve math's reputation among the topics of study. I started tutoring as a math grad student working on my PhD, and continued on during and after my academic teaching. In many ways I prefer tutoring to teaching in a traditional classroom setting, because while tutoring I have the luxury of being able to respond specifically to a student’s concerns and craft my message for just one student at a time, as opposed to 30 or more. I’ve been teaching and/or tutoring math for almost 20 years now, and in that time, I’ve helped all ages and abilities to achieve their goals in a wide variety of topics in mathematics.

My primary goal as a tutor is to adapt to each individual's learning style in order to make learning as efficient and fun as possible. I've been told I have a knack for explaining mathematical concepts in a clear and concise way, which is fortunate for me because I genuinely enjoy helping students overcome frustrations to appreciate how much fun math can be.

I'm available to help with all levels of mathematics, including all K - 12 subjects, calculus, probability, statistics, finite math, discrete math, algebra, analysis, and many more.

My scheduling is flexible, whether you'd like to meet just once to get past a particular problem or topic, or more regularly to learn a new topic or improve your grade. So, whether you're in a class and looking to improve your grade, or you're a homeschooler looking to put together a class, or a busy professional getting ready to go back to school or develop a new skill, (or anything else!) let me know and I can help you get there!

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have taught and tutored college level differential equations many times, helping students make sense of first-order equations, second-order linear equations, Laplace transforms, homogenous equations, and the like. Although there is a lot of material to keep track of in a typical first differential equations course, a solid background in calculus will go a long way toward success.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have tutored and taught discrete math many times, and it's one of my favorite subjects.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Since my first undergraduate course in linear algebra, and on through graduate school, linear algebra has always been one of my favorite subjects. I have tutored many linear algebra students on the ins and outs of matrix arithmetic, Gauss-Jordan elimination, linear transformations and vector spaces. I have also taught several college linear algebra courses over the years.
Logic,

Logic

I am available to tutor introductory through advanced logic and set theory. Having taught logic at the college level many times over the years and worked on developing logic sections for college math textbooks, I enjoy the opportunity to work as logic tutor and make the subject as fun and accessible as I know it can be.

awesome teacher

Damon is very patient and does a wonderful job helping to make sense of geometry . I would recommend him highly.

Jeanne, 2 lessons with Damon

Calming and thorough.

My son was nervous at first but Damon did a great job at working with my son's tempo of learning. We will definitely have another session again.

Denise, 9 lessons with Damon

My son got a lot of one session. We hope to continue!

Quadratic equation in depth. My son was really pleased and felt satisfied. We will ask Damon to present some challenges to our son when Damon gets to know his understanding of math foundamentals.

Vibha, 8 lessons with Damon

Extremely helpful and patient

Damon was amazingly helpful with my daughter's geometry. We will be seeking him out again when school starts in the fall.

Daniel, 17 lessons with Damon

Knows the subject

Damon is great. Without a preview of the specific problems, he can cover any of my son's review sheets and really help him understand the material.

Mary, 18 lessons with Damon

Easy to understand.

Damon is great! He covers the material in a manner that breaks it down so that I could understand.
