I have 20 years' experience tutoring high school/college level mathematics. Most of my tutoring has been informal, but as a graduate student, I supervised my department's tutoring lab. Additionally, I have 10+ teaching all levels of math in a university setting.

I have 20 years' experience tutoring high school/college level mathematics. Most of my tutoring has been informal, but as a graduate student, I supervised my department's tutoring lab. Additionally, I have 10+ teaching all levels of math in a university setting.
I enjoy tutoring because it lets me communicate a beautiful, challenging, and practical subject to others. Helping a student understand or master a concept is priceless.
I have a Ph.D. in mathematics from Texas A&M university, summer 2011. My education and teaching/tutoring experience allows me to quickly diagnose underlying gaps or misunderstandings in knowledge. It also gives me several points of view from which to approach material.
I have taught college algebra, trigonometry, and calculus (and many higher level math courses) multiple times, and I know what is required to succeed in a given subject, and how to lay a foundation for success in future coursework.
I know that mathematics can be hard (really hard). Anyone who simply says, "math is easy once you've got the basics" hasn't really run into the tough stuff yet; there is enough out there to challenge ANYBODY. As such, I don't judge; everyone is at their own level. Challenging though a class or subject may be, hard work and patience are almost always enough to become proficient in it, and together we'll work to get you where you want to be.
