Teacher, tutor, and author with a PhD in mathematics

Steve W.
I began tutoring students in mathematics when I was a sophomore in college. By the time I began college, I had already tutored more than 100 students, helping most of them to get 90's on all of their math tests.

Throughout college and graduate school, I tutored about 20 to 30 hours per week. All of my clients came through word of mouth. During this time I continued to grow as a tutor and expand.

In 2001 I received my PhD in mathematics, began working as math professor, and also started...

## Calculus AB

Just a first lesson with Steve, but we were especially pleased with how accommodating he was with scheduling a last minute lesson. Grateful for that and looking forward to working more with Steve.

Margo, 1 lesson with Steve

## Steve was very knowledgeable regarding Multi Variable Calculus

First he ascertained the studentâ€™s familiarity with certain theorems. He gave the student additional frameworks for thinking about the subject matter, and she would be happy to have him tutor her again.
