The important thing to realize in tutoring is that all students learn differently. I have had over 15 years of tutoring experience: from friends in grade school and college to students I taught at the University of Minnesota, and more recently to friend's children. As such I have seen and have been able to help a very diverse number of students with various skill levels. Students often think that a subject matter is hard because of past low grades or former bad instruction, and the key to helping students is to first show that he or she can overcome the past. It's a matter of being coached and lead into the right way of looking at the subject matter. Though some of us are naturally more talented at certain subjects than others, I have found that with the right teacher, all students can learn any subject matter. The way that quickly help students learn abstract subjects such as math and physics, my specialties, is to relate those ideas to common every day experiences. This is how I tutor, and I have found it to be very effective. If you or your children are struggling with these harder and more abstract subjects, like math and physics, then I can help. I personally find it very rewarding to experience that aha moment with students who finally realize that he or she has just learned a new idea which previously had been so impossible.

After being out of school for almost 7 years, I was in great need of help in mathematics. I hired Long in early March of 2013 in hopes that he could help me improve my math skills for the upcoming fall semester of college. He did just that. I am now on my second semester of school with full confidence in math. He is a very talented tutor with a PhD in Physics that really shows. Long did a great job with putting math in perspective, using examples of everyday life and how it all relates to math. If I ever need help again in the future I will definitely be calling Long for his professional assistance.
Long tutored my son for AP Calculus BC and AP Physics in the Junior year. Long is very good in Physics and Calculus and very happy his tutoring. Long was of great help and my son was able to achieve his learning objectives. Long is very patient and flexible with his availability. In the finals week and other after school classes, my son was not able to have a fixed time for tutoring, however Mr Long was able to accommodate at a very short notice. The content of his class focused on the students requirements and he was willing to address all the questions. Mr long is very open and forthright on the study discussions. His style of teaching is very effective. I would definitely recommend him.
Long is a talented, patient and gifted teacher! He guided me through problems until I truly understood the concepts of Newtonian mechanics. He taught me to approach physics problems much differently than I had been. As a result of his guidance, I have gained a deep understanding of mechanics and have had success in my course. I highly recommend Long and have great confidence he will help you immensely!
Long has done a great job helping me prepare and pass the math portion of the MTLE exam. He is so good that he is also tutoring my daughter in Algebra II. She really likes him as he explains things well and gives great examples if she is having a hard time understanding a specific concept.
My son was struggling with Math class and that was very depressing for me and his dad. While searching in web sites I found about WyzAnt tutoring and I was very impressed with all dealings. Finally I got Mr. Long D as a tutor for my son, I am so happy that he agreed to come and teach my son. My son is very happy with him, his grades went up. As per my son he said he is very consistent and he knows what he is teaching, so totally we are very satisfied and grateful to have him.
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.
