About Doug

I have tutored numerous students while I was in graduate school. Nearly every student would make A's after tutoring. My method is simple. We work lots of problems and learn methodical problem solving processes. I show the student how to solve a problem as if I were teaching a class. I then let the student solve problems while overseeing their methodology. After they learn the correct methodology, we can continue to cover all sections. I have tutored students from pre K to the graduate level. Some students have the stamina to work up to 8 hours per session but most students can go for an hour or few before getting tired. I have a research business and I am an adjunct faculty at NCSU. I took the faculty position to allow me to help students learn. Other than my children, friends and relatives, I have not recently tutored on a one-to one basis recently. I like to start with an hour or two session to see if my methods agree with the student.
