About Preston

I have a PhD Degree in Educational Research with a minor in Mathematics. I have two Master's Degrees in Mathematics (MA and MS). I have a BS in Mathematics as well. I have done extensive research in pedagogical techniques and I am able to communicate with students at all levels. I enjoy teaching, especially one-on-one or a small group setting.

I am very patient and willing to move at the student's pace. I encourage questions and my answers will not intimidate the student. The experience will be enjoyable.
