About Russell

! Due to health problems, I am temporarily unavailable for tutoring.!

For many years I've tutored math, been employed as a mathematician, and worked on mathematical discoveries. I've worked wonders with students one on one using two deep principles:

(1) If you understand the math, you will easily remember the formulas and know how to apply them.

(2) Solving complex math problems involves breaking them up into small easy steps (which is teachable).

I teach students how to tap their inner genius to simplify and solve math problems, and when they get stuck, I play math detective to find out where that individual needs an improved understanding, which is often in the basics. Once a student "gets" it, whatever "it" is, self-confidence soars and math become easier and even fun, not only for that class but also into the future.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Calculus

I have had coursework in advanced calculus, differential equations, vector algebra, numerical methods, and other classes at the Oregon Institute of Technology, where I was also employed in their tutoring center for these classes as well as algebra and trigonometry. I have also tutored extensively since. I have also been employed as a calculation auditor for major class actions lawsuits.
