About Scott

I have been tutoring since 2003 and can cover anything from pre-algebra through Calculus. My approach is a very low pressure and easy going way of learning. I don't make any extra work for students (unless requested), as I find most of them bogged down already.

I simply help students understand what they are currently working on in school and then fill in the gaps in their knowledge. When a student doesn't understand something, I go back to what they do understand and build on that.

I also love playing chess and have taught many young people the game. By starting out with just a few pieces at a time, new players are not overwhelmed by the complexity of the game.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring algebra 1 since 2003.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Algebra 2 since 2003.

ASVAB

After looking into what is on the ASVAB test I wanted to become qualified to tutor for it. I passed the WyzAnt ASVAB content test with 100% and found that it is not much different than when I tutor for my other subjects.

Chess

I love teaching chess to new players. By only introducing one piece at a time, newcomers to the game are never overwhelmed by the complexity of the game. Usually we start with a "pawn battle" and add an additional piece each game.

Geometry

I have been tutoring geometry since 2003.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring Pre-algebra since 2003. This is a very important class as it will serve as a base for all future math.

Precalculus

I have been tutoring pre calculus since 2003.

SAT Math

I have helped many students prepare for the Math section of the SATs every year since 2003.

Scott has a low pressure method of teaching, which my son responds very well to. He met my son where he was at, and personalized his lessons to address his specific areas of need. He is very intuitive and extremely ...
