Bio

My tutoring practice utilizes a peer based approach that challenges traditional hierarchical and authoritarian educational systems. I have always believe that any individual in need of tutoring is in need of an alternative to the default system of instruction. After all, if traditional methods of education worked, you wouldn't be here for tutoring. My alternative system opposes the existing classroom social structure to create a student owned process of discovery through guided trial and...

My tutoring practice utilizes a peer based approach that challenges traditional hierarchical and authoritarian educational systems. I have always believe that any individual in need of tutoring is in need of an alternative to the default system of instruction. After all, if traditional methods of education worked, you wouldn't be here for tutoring. My alternative system opposes the existing classroom social structure to create a student owned process of discovery through guided trial and error. I do this by focusing on cooperative, collaborative, and critical dialogue rather than simple instruction. In practice this creates a more engaging learning environment and makes the learning process as painless as possible.

I have been using this approach to tutor professionally for 6 years at the college and high school level in math courses such as Calculus, Geometry, Algebra, and Statistics, as well as standardized math tests like the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I also have experience in computer science tutoring with subjects like Python, Java, Data Structures, and Algorithmic Design. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mathematics and Statistics with a Computer Science minor and I have completed all coursework for my PhD in Informatics. Along with my experience in tutoring, I have been a TA for hundreds of students across multiple courses at multiple universities. However, at the end of the day it is not my credentials that make me a great tutor, but the personal skills I use in my approach to tutoring.

I structure my tutoring sessions around Bloom's Taxonomy, but overall each meeting is custom tailored to my students. As this is a collaborative process, I'm happy to incorporate any suggestions or requests you may have. Please feel free to contact me or schedule our first session so that we can get started!

Calculus,

Calculus

I've been tutoring Calculus 1, 2, and 3 at the high school and college level for over 5 years. This includes Calculus 1 and 2 as AP Calculus AB and BC and Calculus 3 as Multivariate Calculus and Vector Calculus. I have tutored Calculus courses as an official university tutor, a volunteer high school tutor, and as a private tutor, giving me experience helping many differing kinds of people in these classes.
Geometry,

Geometry

I've been tutoring students in Geometry in person and online for over 5 years. This is one of my most commonly requested courses, as many students struggle with the introduction to proof writing. However, I have a great deal of experience in writing proofs through my math degree and have identified many of the common mistakes students make through my years tutoring the subject.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I've been tutoring Precalculus online and in person for over 5 years. This is a pivotal course to math education, as it is typically when most students get their first introduction to trigonometric functions and the unit circle. These concepts persist through nearly all future math courses, so I make it a focus in my tutoring to ensure these are understood.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I've been tutoring SAT Math prep for 5+ years. Standardized test prep like the SAT is one of the few subjects that I alter my tutoring style for. While I still focus on building a thorough understanding of core math concepts, I also cover many test taking strategies essential for succeeding on the SAT.
