About Adam

I am an experienced tutor and professional educator. I have tutored privately in the student's home and also through school affiliated programs. I have experience as a high school mathematics instructor, college level mathematics instructor, and middle school math and science tutor. I am currently employed full-time with a local school district and hold state certification.

I have been described as having a seemingly endless supply of patience. I have a strong understanding of learning styles and teaching strategies. My approach to tutoring can be described as "comfortable." As a tutor my job is to keep the student focused on the topic, to answer questions regarding the topic and to guide the learner towards the desired outcome/understanding. I am a fan of using leading questions and analogies as tools in the tutoring process. Also I like introducing the student to study aides and organizational strategies that may prove to help them as they progress as life-long learners. I do not have one set technique or framework that I use on a regular basis as each learner has a unique style, attitude and need all of which I like to accommodate.

I understand the process of learning through our current educational systems. I have degrees that prove my success as a student and employment history that showcases my ability to share that success with others.

Great, reliable tutor — Adam has been able to reach my son in ways we'd not been able to and has techniques that stick with him and he'll remember and (hopefully) apply! I would highly recommend Adam. He's so patient and kind and that's really important when trying to teach something that's difficult for a student with plenty of other stresses in his day! ...
