I am committed to helping students learn overarching concepts and the why behind math, not just how to do math. I strive to make math interesting, and relevant. And at the end of the day I help students understand what a question is asking and how to answer it themselves.

I have been

*$50/hr for one student.
$90/hr for two students.
$125/hr for three students
$25/hr for each additional student
College folk: get a group of 3-5 students and I will charge $100/hr for everyone*

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Received my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. Learned algebra in junior high and was able to skip it in high school. Have been assisting folks in Algebra since college.

I passed Algebra 2 honors in High School with an A+.

I have been tutoring Calculus for about three years now and served as a Calculus TA in college.

Have been tutoring discrete math for roughly two years. U did research in number theory (a type of discrete math) for my senior thesis. I took Discrete Math in college and received an A. Discrete Math is often the first time people have to grapple with different types of proofs and I help to explain the process of solving and writing out proofs effectively.

Skilled at proofs and helping others write proofs for the first time. Have been helping out in geometry since college.

I took AP Computer Science A my sophomore year of High School. I received an A in the class, and a 5 on the exam. I have also since then taken 2 semesters of Object Oriented programming courses which were focused on Java as well as many computer science courses since then.

I have been helping out in linear algebra topics for roughly two years. I received my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. I took Linear Algebra my first year of college and received an A.

I have been helping out in logic for two years. I received my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. I took a summer intensive on Logic in high school as well as doing some personal research in logic in college. Logic can often feel complicated and convoluted and I do my best to make it intuitive and clear. Explaining why we have symbolic logic and how to interpret it in a way that makes sense.

Have lots of experience helping younger students with some of the concepts in algebra. These concepts are often very different areas of mathematics which I can simplify and also know with great depth. This helps keep the topic interesting and relevant.

Learned calculus in high school. The concepts of precalculus are often a diverse set of concepts of which I have a detailed knowledge.

I have been tutoring Python for about a year now. I taught myself much of the basics of Python during my spare time. I took many computer programming languages in college including a course entitled "Principles of Programming Languages" in which I learned five programming languages in a semester, one of which was ruby which is very similar to Python.

I received an 800 on my SAT Math section. I have always been skilled at taking math exams and can help others see some of the tricks tests use on students.

I have been studying Theatre since my freshman year of high school. I started doing professional production work in Lighting my sophomore year of high school and have been taking college courses in Theatre since my freshman year of college and I've gotten an A or the equivalent in nearly every theatre course I have taken. I also am studying Theatre at Hampshire College.

Been helping out with trig topics since college. Received my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. Learned trig in high school with an A.
