If you would like to work with a patient tutor, a tutor who has the heart of a teacher, and a tutor who knows and enjoys what he is doing, then look no further, you have found me. I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics, and several graduate degrees (including a Ph.D.) in mathematics and mathematics education. I have 12+ years of tutoring experience at the college level. I have also tutored high school students. Although I specialize in tutoring students taking business calculus (calculus for business or economics majors) and life sciences calculus (calculus for pre-med or biology students), I have considerable experience tutoring several college courses, namely college algebra, precalculus, applied calculus, and engineering calculus (traditional/regular calculus). I have also tutored students taking Algebra I and Algebra II (high school algebra). In addition, I have considerable experience with tutoring students taking introductory college statistics.

My approach to tutoring takes the form of explaining concepts (e.g., the derivative in calculus), followed by several examples illustrating how to use these concepts to solve application problems. Typically, most of the time in my tutoring sessions is spent on working and explaining examples, something I believe and have found to be helpful in learning mathematics. Hence, my tutoring motto is: The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics. My goal in tutoring is to benefit the students I work with as much as possible. Consequently, I welcome suggestions that students or parents can provide. I am easy to reach and will always provide fast responses. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Simply the Best!

I was failing business calculus before I started tutoring with Sydney. As he worked with me, I saw my test scores get progressively higher. Yesterday I took my last exam and did much better than I could have anticipated doing! Sydney really is a gifted teacher and helped me comprehend material that felt impossible before!

Great tutor!

Sydney is very good at explaining the concepts in my calculus textbook. I was struggling to sort through all the information given and make sense of it before Sydney started helping.

I’m finally getting somewhere!

Sydney has been helpful in filtering the important information from my calculus text. I was feeling overwhelmed before trying to read it on my own as there is so much information. Sydney simplifies things in a way that is efficient for me and easier to understand.

Sydney is the best!

Sydney is so patient and explains things very well. I felt completely lost in calculus before finding him. I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere and getting a good foundation in calculus.

Patient and knowledgeable

Sydney was patient and was able to help me go though my homework problems to make sure I was completing them properly. He really knows the subject well and I appreciated his tutoring style. I've already booked my next session.

Very Patient and Encouraging Tutor!

My tutoring sessions with Sydney have been so helpful. His style of teaching has been the most effective for me so far. I’m actually starting to enjoy calculus after a lifelong fear and avoidance of math.

Very Patient and Encouraging Tutor!

Sydney is the best tutor I’ve worked with. He is a natural teacher and was very understanding of my fear around math. I’m an older student that recently returned to college after a long break and I was very nervous about taking math again. Sydney is helping me build confidence and enthusiasm and I’m so grateful to have found him. He’s very easy to work with and concepts that made no sense to me before are now starting to click.
