About Scott

Hello! My name is Scott and I am a part-time tutor for WyzAnt. By early evening, I can be found assisting our future’s brightest Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. By day, I can be found at the Advanced Photon Source of Argonne National Lab in Lemont, IL. There, I currently assist today’s brightest Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians with mechanical designs and systems used for 21st Century scientific research.

At both locations, I employ my talents towards two of my greatest passions: helping people in developing their math skills through critical thinking and creating (very cool!) never before seen, "one-of-a-kind," mechanical designs. Both endeavors are almost of a second nature for me and are equally rewarding.

With the math, I have seen and experienced many unwieldy problems, so, I know first-hand how intimidating it may be to a person experiencing a new set of problems. To help. I also know how critical it is to take apart complex tasks and forge them into smaller, manageable (and most importantly, understandable!) elements. With this intent, the once "unsolvable" becomes "solved with success!" The goal is to help students be instilled with a positive, high level of problem-solving confidence that will be engaged onto their next problem set.

Like this "monster": f(x)=a_0+?_(n=1)^8¦(a_n cos??npx/L?+b_n sin??npx/L? )


Hiring a private tutor can be a considered as an unknown risk. I will help reduce that risk by offering the first lesson pro bono (for free). That way, I will have an opportunity to evaluate the need and determine if I am the right tutor or not. The same can be determined for your end, namely, to evaluate me to see if I am the right tutor for the need of the student.
