About Evan

I earned my PhD in Mathematics with a focus on math education in 2009. I've taught various courses at the University level, in including many sections of math for elementary and middle schools teachers, as well as college geometry and other courses for high school teachers. I have tutored at all levels for the past 15 years, and can help with any type of mathematics or physics.

My significant body of research in mathematics education, which includes grants from the National Science Foundation and Department of Education, makes me an expert on student learning and thinking. I focus, in particular, on students' problem-solving skills, which includes forming a clear understanding of the problem and thinking through how to use the available tools. I know that all students are capable of significant reasoning, and I build on and refine their current thinking rather than just showing them what to do. I also give parents suggestions on ways to support desirable reasoning so as to reinforce ideas developed during tutoring.
