About Luke


Bio

Hello! I'm Luke. I have a dual degree from SUNY New Paltz in both Mathematics and Adolescent Mathematics Education. However, the most important thing about me as a tutor is that I am very effective at communicating with students in a laid back, yet productive way. The most common question asked by math students is, "Ugh! Why am I learning this?" And I frequently get students to work with me by answering that question in a way deeper than "You won't have a calculator in your pocket" because...

Hello! I'm Luke. I have a dual degree from SUNY New Paltz in both Mathematics and Adolescent Mathematics Education. However, the most important thing about me as a tutor is that I am very effective at communicating with students in a laid back, yet productive way. The most common question asked by math students is, "Ugh! Why am I learning this?" And I frequently get students to work with me by answering that question in a way deeper than "You won't have a calculator in your pocket" because nowadays we all do. By providing context and logic for the math that the student is doing and by oozing enthusiasm for mathematics, I can reach the people who think they just aren't "math people."

I have tutored every level of math from 6th grade all the way to Calculus 2 for the past six years. I have tutored one-on-one in secondary schools, colleges, and homes, as well as during class with some students. I know how classroom learning goes as I've taught multiple 7th grade math classes and high school math classes including Algebra 1, Geometry, and some electives. While I primarily focus on math, I have experience tutoring other subjects such as English, Chemistry, and Physics.

While I would love to show you how to enjoy math, by working with me you at least won't dread it! I'm very flexible and easy to contact by various methods. I respond quickly and can answer whatever questions you have about me or scheduling.

On top of having experience tutoring 7th through 12th grade Common Core math, I've also had to create lessons aligned to Common Core standards for 7th grade math, Algebra 1, and Geometry. Also, during my undergrad we were required to read through all the Common Core standards from K-12, periodically making lessons aligned with the standards for assessment. Finally, Teacher Certification exams required lesson creating based on these standards.
