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. In addition, I have considerable experience teaching and tutoring several college courses, namely college algebra, precalculus, survey of calculus, applied calculus, traditional calculus, calculus for the life and social sciences, and statistics.

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

incredibly helpful

I was very unsure of myself going into my midterm but now I have great confidence in my ability. Mr Sydney clearly explained the problem thoroughly to the point where there was no confusion. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking math help

Knowledgable, patient, and respectful.

Sydney is a excellent tutor. He is knowledgable and very patient. He never makes me feel inadequate or stupid but will go back and repeat as many times as I need without getting frustrated. He knows his stuff really well and can work with any problem on the fly, so I don't have to send the homework 3 days ahead as some tutors have requested. Usually, I have a hard time finding a tutor I feel really good working with, so Sydney was a great find for me.

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!
