Experienced Mathematics Tutor
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!

Very patient tutor
Damon is great at explaining things. He knows what he is talking about concerning college algebra. Very flexible with times and accommodating even with last minute changes. He came through in a pinch and got my son who was failing College Algebra to get a B on the final and pass the class. In only 3 lessons!Valerie , 17 lessons with Damon
Professional, helpful, and clear
Damon was willing and able to help me with a few very difficult set theory problems. He was well-prepared and was able to explain some high-level stuff in a helpful and accessible manner. Highly recommended!Matt, 7 lessons with Damon
Extremely Flexible, Communicates Quickly
Damon tutored my son in Calculus 2. He started after the semester was 2/3 done. He helped my son to get the grade he needed to move forward. He took on a lot of information and helped my son organize and did intensive review for his last exam and final. Would definitely use again.Kimberly Schunk, 15 lessons with Damon
Probably Knows More Than Your Math Professor
Patient, dependable tutor and can explain extremely difficult concepts simply while giving you multiple ways to solve. Excellent in person. Highly recommended for MBA supplemental help around statistics, probability, linear functions, logs and more.Shea, 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
