About Shane


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring math for over 10 years. I've taught from middle school to college and been involved with math and science outreach projects with the Physics factory. I have a background in engineering and math education which means I understand how the standards are put together and can prepare you not only for the current material, but where it is leading to. I have real experience applying these skills in real life jobs in addition to the classroom, so I can help you...

I have been teaching and tutoring math for over 10 years. I've taught from middle school to college and been involved with math and science outreach projects with the Physics factory. I have a background in engineering and math education which means I understand how the standards are put together and can prepare you not only for the current material, but where it is leading to. I have real experience applying these skills in real life jobs in addition to the classroom, so I can help you understand how you will be using these tools after you are out of school.

I am a tutor who can help you understand and appreciate math. I have a background in both application and education. I know state standards and practical applications. I can help you see the patterns and structure behind the problems you are doing so it is easier to understand and remember.

Please send me a message to find out if we would be a good fit. I like helping people who want to learn. If you feel like this is you, send me a message.

Helpful Tutor!

My son has worked with some tutors that just do not connect well. Shane is incredible! at explaining pre calc in a way that makes sense to my son. We are very happy!

Knowledgeable and patient

Mr. Shane is great! He is patient and explains everything thoroughly. It is hard to find a great tutor. He has helped my sister as well. He will soon be assisting my mother with a math class she will be signing up for soon.

Excellent Math tutor for graphing and Excel

Excellent knowledge of graphing! Thank you so much Shane! I really appreciated how you took the time to review the concepts of graphing and present this data in Excel for which you are so proficient at.

precalc

He was great, he sat with two of my children and they both said afterwards that it was very helpful.

Michelle, 1 lesson with Shane

helpful, knowledgeable

Great and to the point. Knowledgeable about my grad level stats class. He uses different vocabulary from what I'm used to but I was about to follow what he was saying. I plan to work with him again in the future.

Shane enjoys doing and teaching math

Shane really enjoys doing anything related to math - and this is a great thing when it comes to tutoring. He’s so focused on showing you how to get to the solution that he will spend his own time to help you. Now that’s something you won’t see everyone do! Whatever it takes for you to understand the subject, Shane has got what it takes!

Great Tutor

Shane was able to meet up on a very short notice and helped me complete an assignment. He was incredibly helpful. Not only did he offer explanations for when I was wrong, but helped to solidify ideas I was comfortable with. He was also cognizant of my time limit. I look forward to scheduling many more sessions with him.

Meaghan, 2 lessons with Shane

This is a tutor without peer

To call Shane a good tutor is an understatement. He's an excellent tutor who has such a diverse background. He's helped me with Calculus 3, Differential Equations, and Phyics all on the same day. If you're having trouble with upper division math courses then he should be your go to tutor. I can't recommend him enough.

Brian, 24 lessons with Shane

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Reviewed statistics at an easy to follow pace. Made sure to carefully go over anything I didn’t know. It was obvious that he knew the material very well, as he came to our lesson very prepared.
