I am a mathematics professor with over 13 years experience of teaching and tutoring college students, including non-traditional college students (i.e., returning adult students) and students with learning disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia, and discalculia . I am a patient tutor who enjoys breaking down concepts, solving business calculus problems, and helping students build confidence and enthusiasm for business calculus and mathematics in general. I have a proven track record of helping students improve exam and course grades in business calculus.

I specialize in tutoring students taking business calculus, business statistics, precalculus for business, and calculus for the life and social sciences. In addition, I have considerable experience teaching and tutoring several college courses, namely college algebra, precalculus, applied calculus, engineering calculus (traditional/regular calculus), and regular statistics. I have also tutored students taking quantitative reasoning (at the college level), algebra 1 (high school algebra), algebra 2 (high school algebra), and AP Statistics (high school statistics).

Besides teaching and tutoring, I conduct scientific research on the teaching and learning of fundamental ideas in business calculus and regular calculus such as the concept of the derivative. In fact, some of my research publications have focused on students' understanding of optimization problems, related rates problems, and marginal change (i.e., marginal cost, marginal revenue, and marginal profit).

Great teacher, extremely patient.

Great Teacher

Sydney is the best. I first found him 12 hours before a Bus Calc 1 test I had in college. He is straight to the point, and knows what he’s talking about. He also responds fast and it’s very flexible with time. Overall definitely will be tutoring with him again and a great source for Business Calculus help.

Knowledgeable and Patient

I signed my daughter up for a last minute session to help her prepare for a stats quiz. This was our first time using Wyzant. Sydney was awesome! He responded in a timely manner to my questions and my daughter said he did a fantastic job iexplaining the areas that she was having difficulty with. And she got a 100% on the her quiz! Thanks Sydney!

Excellent Tutor!

Sydney has been extremely instrumental in helping me understand Calculus. He explains things in great detail and really breaks down the questions. In the past tutors have made me feel bad about not understanding a particular concept but Sydney is very understanding and kind. He is a fantastic tutor and I would highly recommend him!

Brittany, 20 lessons with Sydney

Great teacher, understanding

Very understanding, Sydney goes through any problems you have step by step explaining as he goes and constantly makes sure that you are understanding everything and are not confused. Greatly helped me with my calculus homework.

Arsen, 1 lesson with Sydney

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Sydney seemed very knowledgeable on the statistics material. He was patient and attempted to show me how to understand what we reviewed and offered valuable tips. Would hire again...

Kind, knowledgeable and dedicated

Sydney was there when I needed him for a particularly difficult Calculus class in college. I couldn't have gotten a good grade without him. If you get him as your tutor, you're very lucky!

Patience, Intelligence and Kindness, traits that make Sidney the best math teacher I’ve had.

Sidney and I worked together on my summer calculus class almost everyday for multiple months. When I first met with him, my math skills were lackluster to say the least. He didn’t mind however, remained patient and as time passed we noticed my progression. He is particularly good at explaining the reasoning or rules behind what we are working on, this style of teaching helps build a base of knowledge to build from. Besides being a great teacher, he is also a great person. He truly cares for his students and those around him, he wants them to succeed and will go beyond his jobs responsibilities to ensure this success. I couldn’t recommend a tutor more strongly and I know whoever works with him will experience similar success to me.
