About Theodore


Bio

I'm Theodore! Although I'm new to Wyzant, I have extensive experience as both a teacher and tutor. In fact, I started my teaching "career" in the 6th grade, when a neighbor hired me to tutor her sons in math. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I tutored in a variety of introductory and intermediate classes (statistics, finite mathematics, Calculus, college and intermediate algebra) and even served as a tutor for the football and basketball teams at Indiana University.

I'm Theodore! Although I'm new to Wyzant, I have extensive experience as both a teacher and tutor. In fact, I started my teaching "career" in the 6th grade, when a neighbor hired me to tutor her sons in math. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I tutored in a variety of introductory and intermediate classes (statistics, finite mathematics, Calculus, college and intermediate algebra) and even served as a tutor for the football and basketball teams at Indiana University.

I am a certified teacher and taught high school and middle school mathematics. For the past several years, I've been teaching undergraduate and graduate university-level courses in math and statistics.

I have experience in a variety of subjects, but especially enjoy tutoring Statistics, Calculus, and all of the Algebra classes (Algebra I & II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus). My focus as a tutor is helping students to succeed in mathematics through an understanding of the steps of each process. I have found that students that can "see" the mathematics can often understand the mathematics, so I encourage students to use diagrams and graphs to visualize problems. I am a patient teacher, as well, encouraging students to ask questions as we work and providing additional examples to help students achieve success.

Through every teaching position (middle school, high school, and college), one factor has remained constant: my focus on students and dedication to helping students succeed. I am easy to reach and look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals in mathematics and statistics.

Precalculus

I have taught and tutored pre-calculus for several years, including some years at a top college prep school. In addition to assisting students with algebraic components of pre-calc, I can assist with trigonometry, analytic geometry, and function/graphing topics. I enjoy assisting students with this important bridge to Calculus and other college-level classes.

Finite Math

I am an experienced finite mathematics teacher and tutor, having taught finite for over 5 years. My Ph.D. focused on the teaching and learning of finite mathematics topics, including probability problems, set notation, and Venn diagrams. My focus on visualizing mathematics is particularly helpful infinite, as it allows students to a better understanding of counting problems, probability, and linear programming.
Logic,

Logic

I am a long-time teacher of the proof and logic course at our university. This course focuses on truth tables, logical equivalences, quantifiers, the logical underpinnings of mathematical proof, and numerous proof techniques. In addition, I have taught modern algebra, number theory, and discrete mathematics classes at the university, all of which utilize logic and proof strategies.

Very patient and encouraging.

Theodore is helping me with Calculus II and even though we haven't had many sessions yet, he has already helped me understand where some of my knowledge gap are and how to start fixing them. He's great, I'm looking forward to continuing our work.

Patrick, 1 lesson with Theodore

Great teacher!

Very good at explaining concepts & is super patient and encouraging. He really cares about my success and deeply wants me to learn & benefit from our sessions.

Grace, 2 lessons with Theodore

Great at explaining and really helpful

He really helped me understand the material. I was having trouble with the Gauss Jordan method and he did a great job explaining it. He also showed me an online tool to help. Thank you so much!

Sophia, 2 lessons with Theodore

Patient and very thorough

Amazing! 1 sessions and my daughter has a better understanding of Math then when she's in her classroom! Theodore is patient and very thorough. He takes his time explaining and never made my daughter feel rushed

Stacey, 3 lessons with Theodore

Excellent Help

Theodore was once again a great help. Brought clarity to derivatives and was patient with examples and explaining everything very well

Gabrielle, 4 lessons with Theodore

Excellent Help

Theodore was more than helpful with topics I was unable to fully grasp and it helped a lot him using graphs and visuals to help strengthen my understanding. Patient and very kind. I know who I will be using in the future with assistance in Calc:)

Gabrielle, 4 lessons with Theodore

Professional and attentive

Theodore has been patient. The need was immediate as I was 1 week into statistics with barely a clue. We are forever grateful. Continuing with this kind of guidance available truly has reduces my anxiety.

Great tutor

I had a great experience with Theodore. I am taking an accelerated statistics course and was having trouble with some concepts. I had a 40-question exam review and he patiently went through each question step by step, even creating his own practice problems to make sure I really understood the concepts we were covering. He taught me easier methods to do almost every problem also. I highly recommend his tutoring! I came away from our session with a way clearer understanding of the material.

Sarah, 9 lessons with Theodore

Patient, Genuinely Concerned, Acutely Knowledgeable, Enjoyable

Theodore is one of those special individuals who truly cares that you are successful. His patience comes from a unique depth of understanding, experience and humility. He definitely has a great deal of knowledge to share, and, additionally, has a significant amount of education regarding how different people learn most effectively. He applies this expertise while tutoring. Theodore is responsive, timely and considerate in his messaging as well. I felt he made learning fun and I felt good about myself during the tutoring session and afterwards, as he gave me tips and encouragement on how to test and study. I highly recommend this wonderful tutor. Thank you, Theodore!

Patient and kind tutor with his student’s best interests at heart

I stumbled on Ted while I was looking for a statistics tutor. Every step of the way, he showed himself to be wise and compassionate and cared deeply about my academic success. You should be so lucky as to have a tutor like him.
