About Kerry


Bio

After obtaining my degree in statistics, I worked for some time in banking. My tutoring career began with high geometry in April 2000 when a neighbor asked me to tutor his granddaughter. From there, I contacted heads of math departments and guidance counselors at local high schools, increasing my student base. After expanding locally I started tutoring students across the United States and foreign countries at various online forums in subjects including algebra, geometry, trigonometry,...

After obtaining my degree in statistics, I worked for some time in banking. My tutoring career began with high geometry in April 2000 when a neighbor asked me to tutor his granddaughter. From there, I contacted heads of math departments and guidance counselors at local high schools, increasing my student base. After expanding locally I started tutoring students across the United States and foreign countries at various online forums in subjects including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, precalculus, calculus and SAT math preparation.
I tutor students of all ages from elementary through college and adults who are working and taking online courses. My students have ranged from 8 years to 65 years old and working both in person and online, I am willing to work a variety of times, including mornings, afternoons and evenings. I have even worked very late hours online to accommodate students from other parts of the United States and in other countries as well.

My love of tutoring first stems from my love of mathematics that I have had since I was a young boy. Going beyond that, I enjoy helping people and gives me great satisfaction seeing those that have struggled in math greatly improve under my teaching methods. The greatest satisfaction is hearing from students years after I have worked with them thanking me for my help and seeing what they have accomplished.

I believe my approach of teaching, giving tips and tricks to help learn materials is more helpful than the standard "by the book" methods. I try to be friendly with those I work with so they are comfortable working with me. While being friendly, that doesn't detract from the work that needs to be done. I basically try to provide a calm, relaxed atmosphere which I believe makes it easier for students to learn a subject they are struggling with and probably don't like.

I like to review and past topics that might be of some difficulty as well as assist in understanding homework and preparation for exams. I believe my approach of working step by step through problems has been a benefit to students. I also believe in making math as simple as possible, often providing tips and tricks to make learning easier. Instead of memorizing a formula, I like to provide ways to understand the method involved so memorization is not needed. Often, a simpler approach is a better approach and I also enjoy showing students a variety of methods to solve a problem, allowing him or her to choose whatever method or methods are most comfortable.

Students from elementary through college who are struggling in math, feel free to contact me for a relaxing, yet rewarding and productive learning experience.
