I'm Theodore! I'm entering my second year as a Wyzant tutor (after 5 years at Chegg) and am loving the continued opportunities to help students succeed!

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 in La Jolla, CA. 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 understanding each step of the solution. 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 student success. I am easy to reach and look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals in mathematics and statistics.

Great working with Theodore!

I really liked working with Theodore! He explained the material very well. I will definitely contact him again for another lesson. Thank you!!!

Awesome Teacher

A brilliant and dedicated tutor. You can ask him anything, and he will explain it with such patience. There are no wrong questions. He is kind and considerate, and will walk with you through each step of the problem. You couldn’t find a better Statistics or math teacher. He is the best and will help you be able to do your best. I’m so grateful to work with him for my college classes. I couldn’t have done it without his help.

Great Tutor

One of the best tutors! Theodore is very patient and accommodating and knowledgeable in his subjects. He has been a great help to me with my college statistics and calculus classes.

Patient and Excellent Tutor

Dr. H has tutored me in Intro to Statistics and Psychology Statistics. He is extremely knowledgeable and can explain very complicated concepts in an easy to understand way. I have a much better understanding of my class materials due to his use of drawing pictures to help me "see it." He has taught me about Z, T, F, and Anova tests, distributions, confidence intervals, effect sizes, and so much more. He has shown me how to do the problems on the TI84 calculator and by hand. He is always patient and thorough. If you are looking for an expert tutor, I highly recommend him. He cares about his students and whether or not they are learning. Not only will you earn As, but you will be able to explain what you've learned to others with confidence.

Amazing teacher

In a month, my son got 98% on his first big precalculus test!! I am so grateful for Mr. H help!!

Excellent in all respects.

Mr Theo is Excellent, polite, kind and patient. My son says he is one of the best tutors he has ever had. He finds out what topic my son is working on at school and prepares him for it. He also goes out of his way to send essential materials. He is very considerate, understands deficiencies and works on them. He has made AP statistics simple and enjoyable for my son who is doing great at school. Can’t thank Mr Theo enough for his excellent tutoring and support. We are so glad we found him. Su

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

He is helping me with Calculus-based statistics. I have had limited time to learn the content - He has been a God sent. He leaves me with great notes and is an expert in statistics.

Fantastic Tutor

Theodore has helped me immensely, and I have gotten excellent results in my calculus 2 class through lessons with him. He's very kind and knows the material well. I could not reccomend him more.

Best Precalculus teacher you can find!

Theodore is the best teacher you can find online! He is really knowledgeable, and most importantly can convey the concept super clear. My son is normally absent minded during math class, with Theodore, it is a exception. He is so patient and work question by question with my son to identify his knowledge gap. Having only three sessions with him, I started to see confidence coming back to my son little by little! You should really try this teacher! You will not be disappointed. I actually listened to his whole lecture, he is really good at teaching!

Kelly, 31 lessons with Theodore

The best tutor so far!

Any given day.. I would recommend Theodore to all who want help with statistics! My daughter scored 99% with just one instruction! One can teach only when concepts are clear and he knows his job… Highly recommend him!
