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.

Excellent teacher

Theodore helped me understand the concept better. He showed me an easier and more accurate way to work through the problems. I wish I would’ve gone to him sooner!

Sophia, 1 lesson with Theodore

Great Stats Teacher

Theodore helped my son prepare for his Statistics final. He's knowledgeable, patient, and explains concepts well. Highly recommended for students who need extra help on Stats.

Cindy, 2 lessons with Theodore

Very Knowledgeable

Theodore is a wonderful tutor in statistics. My son is taking an intro to statistics class in high school. He has been struggling with many of the concepts but Theodore style of teaching has been welcoming. He knows the subject well and helps my son think for himself. He also gives him practice problems soon after his assignment problems to make sure he truly understands. Jackson enjoys his encouraging and warm teaching style.
