Hi, I'm Cannon. I have been fascinated with mathematics since grade school. I decided in high school that I wanted to teach math -- in large part due to a fantastic calculus teacher. I went to Lindenwood University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in both mathematics and computer science. I was blessed with fantastic professors who shared their love of math and cemented my desire to pass that along to others. From there, I attended the University of...
Hi, I'm Cannon. I have been fascinated with mathematics since grade school. I decided in high school that I wanted to teach math -- in large part due to a fantastic calculus teacher. I went to Lindenwood University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in both mathematics and computer science. I was blessed with fantastic professors who shared their love of math and cemented my desire to pass that along to others. From there, I attended the University of Missouri at Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) where I earned a Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics while workings as a Teaching Assistant in both pre-calculus and calculus classes.
I have experience with all levels of algebra, but my specialties are trigonometry and calculus. I also enjoy doing ACT prep. I have spent the last twenty-one years doing my best to pass my love of mathematics on to my students by helping them build a deeper understanding. My favorite part of the job is working one-on-one with students and seeing those "lightbulb moments" when some difficult concept finally makes sense. My focus will always be on making sure students understand not just how, but why. To that end, I use technology as a tool when appropriate, but never as a substitute for learning the underlying concepts.
With so many schools still closed to in-person learning, I know there are many struggling students who could benefit greatly from one-on-one help. I would like the opportunity to provide that help. Please reach out to schedule a no-cost consultation and decide if I am the right tutor for you.
