About Scott


Bio

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.

Photography

I have been an outdoor school/event photographer for 3 years. I have experience with several Canon DSLRs using natural as well as off camera lighting (flash). I specialize in outdoor school photography where we take students through a variety of poses and expressions. The trick is finding the right spot with even lighting and a nice background. Then you just pop a little flash, look for it in the eyes and you're set!

ACT Math

The ACT math section has a lot in common with the SAT, both of which I have been helping students with for years. Doing as many practice problems as possible is the best way to get familiar with the questions. We'll discuss different approaches that can be taken to solve the different types of problems and reinforce any concepts that are weak or may have been missed by the student along the way.

Chess

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.

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.

Easy to understand!

I asked my son how his lesson was and if Scott helped. He said, "So much better. I don't know why they (teachers) make it so difficult." He was very pleased with Scott and we will be using him again as needed.

Erika, 1 lesson with Scott

Awesome Session!

Scott is incredibly helpful, and I really appreciate how patient and helpful he can be when I ask him loads of questions at a time. He really takes his time to explain and even takes the time to teach me some cool Calculator tips along the way!

Kaela, 4 lessons with Scott

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Scott helped review math items, in preparation for the math SAT, that were confusing in a very succinct and calm manner! He provided examples of similar questions on the same topics and discussed different strategies that could be used.

Alisa, 8 lessons with Scott

Very patient and helpful tutor

Scott is patient and takes the time to explain concepts that I'm struggling with. He is very encouraging and positive to work with. Very easy to schedule with, flexible around school and work limitations. A pleasure to work with.

Cindy, 2 lessons with Scott

Highly recommend

Scott responded quickly to messages and was able to fit me in the next day. He helped me with college level calculus and was plenty patient when I asked the same question multiple times. He explained answers to the questions I asked him instead of trying to explain irrelevant and complicated concepts. I would definitely recommend him to people of any age.
