About Avery

I have been tutoring high school to college-level STEM subjects for the past few years now, and over that time, I have successfully taught a range of students with different backgrounds and goals. I recognize that each student is unique and pride myself on catering to all of my students' individual needs and preferences.

To give you a little background, I started off double majoring in computer science and applied math at the College of William & Mary. During my free time, I would volunteer as a tutor for public schools in Williamsburg, VA, and eventually I was hired as a tutor for the College of William and Mary. Later on, I became fascinated with computer engineering concepts. This led me to transfer to the University of Virginia, where I graduated with a BS in Computer Engineering. I have also gained plenty of industry experience working as a software engineer and as a data engineer.

As an engineer, I know how math and science subjects build on themselves, so it's important to me that my students truly grasp their material. Because of that, I try to make that material as relatable as possible.

Some subjects that I'm proficient in are calculus, differential equations, probability, physics, and a variety of programming languages and concepts.

I believe that learning math and science can be very rewarding, and I will work very hard to help my students succeed. My hours and availability are generally pretty flexible, so please feel free to contact me about appointments outside of my listed time ranges.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Avery held several sessions with me to work on different aspects of object oriented programming in Python. He is very knowledgeable in this language, and could help me resolve issues where I was having trouble to debug on my own. Additionally, he would push me to solve issues myself without giving the answer -- I found this very useful in retaining the content we covered. I also left each sessio
