I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is:
U - Understand the problem - what is being asked
P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem
S - Solve the problem
Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness
I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work. This...

Very Patient and a great tutor
Vernon doesn't only explain how to do the things you don't know how to do. He explains why it works the way it does. He helped me with all of my Geometry. Great Tutor!

Progress!
The light bulb finally went off! My son is showing mastery and understanding of difficult math concepts through his work with Vernon. He is now making Bs on his exams and is more confident in tackling complex problems. What is more important is that he can discern why he got problems wrong. His continued work with Vernon has been huge in making him more comfortable in his pre-AP algebra 2 class. He is less nervous and does not blank during tests. As I have said before, Vernon’s patience and ability to evaluate Joaquin’s understanding has allowed my son to make great strides in this course.

Look no further - Vernon is the best!
Vernon helped me prepare for the math sections of a modified GMAT exam. This included algebra, rates, ratios, set equations, etc. As a mid-career professional, I am a bit rusty on these concepts. I truly couldn't have found a better tutor. Vernon has a very approachable style, easily tackled the practice questions we worked through, and took time to make sure I understood the concepts. In working with Vernon over three sessions in one week, I went from not having a clue how to answer the practice questions to solving 50-60% of the problems in the practice tests. That's a lot of progress in one week and I couldn't have done it without Vernon! I'm very happy to have found him on Wyzant and give him my highest recommendation.

Expert in content and friends for middle schoolers
Vernon has been assisting my 7th grader who struggles with math. Typically, my son dreads study time but Vernon connects really well with my son and has given him confidence as they tackle his homework and studies together. We are glad we found Vernon and we recommend him highly.

Awesome teacher
To impress Brandon takes skills. He evaluated and judges based on their skills. Brandon enjoyed your lesson. We will be calling you back before every test for two hours to ensure he has the concepts down prior to taking the test. Thanks Vernon and we will be seeing you again very shortly. Brad S.

Taught my son more in 2 hours than his teacher did all semester.
I think the title says it all. Vernon explained calculus in an easy to understand way. My son's confidence has soared. He learned more in 2 hours with Vernon than a whole semester with his high school teacher.

Excellent tutor
My daughter was very comfortable with him as a tutor, his teaching style was simple and easy to understand. Step by step. Not rushing to leave before his hour or as I have seen before, gathering their things within the hour which I think is unprofessionally. Vernon is a gentleman, soft spoken will not intimidated even the most shy of kids. He was very thoughtful as he explained how things should be done.

Awesome Math and Science Tutor
Vernon has worked with both of my kids in Algebra I, Algebra II, and basic physics. Vernon is very well prepared and comes to the sessions with the materials needed to teach and provide practice. He is good at communicating with me and quick to respond to my requests. He has a very calm presence about him and both of my kids have benefited from his tutoring.

Calm, organized and knowledgeable
Ryan was able to learn his College Algebra material needed for his class. The tutor is very well organized and moves at the pace that the student needs in order to understand the homework.
