About Jody


Bio

My tutoring philosophy is to provide you an experienced perspective on your attempted course work.

I prefer that students come prepared to a tutoring session, with written questions about their text and/or class notes. It also helps to bring a first written attempt at any of their homework or other course assessments. If needed, I can teach a math topic from scratch, but that often involves more time used than what the student budgeted.

For my education, I earned a Bachelor of Science...

My tutoring philosophy is to provide you an experienced perspective on your attempted course work.

I prefer that students come prepared to a tutoring session, with written questions about their text and/or class notes. It also helps to bring a first written attempt at any of their homework or other course assessments. If needed, I can teach a math topic from scratch, but that often involves more time used than what the student budgeted.

For my education, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Pure Mathematics, from the University of Texas at Austin. In addition, I tutored undergraduate math courses for 7 years through UT's Learning Skills Center, and for 3 years through ACC's Learning Labs. The majority of my tutoring experience focuses on both engineering and business calculus , as well as ordinary differential equations. However, I have also helped students in non-technical math survey courses, college algebra, pre-calculus, statistics, and linear algebra.

I try to determine a student's competency level(s) in their mathematics course based on their written work, and then I provide tutoring that builds from those levels - "find the student's ability, and work from there". I am willing to work with both students who are struggling and students who are exceptional, and anywhere along that spectrum.

Statistics

Statistics

Most experience is with introductory statistics classes and AP Statistics. Course work taken at UT Austin that focused on math foundations of statistics. Software familiarity varies - have not invested in high-cost packages.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I tutor both Calculus and Statistics, so I've seen how algebra becomes a foundation for those later classes. In addition, I have completed a majority of the course work towards secondary math teacher certification; so I am aware of the topics covered at different points of a student's math sequence; especially regarding when topics are introduced in pre-algebra, algebra I, or algebra II.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I tutored Calculus for 10+ years, as well as algebra; so I have a good understanding of how the algebra concepts lay the foundations for the later calculus course work. Also, the calculus work creates more challenging algebra applications that may not be touched on in an algebra 2 course.
Calculus,

Calculus

- Calculus tutoring experience: 10+ years, in college-based learning labs (still employed). - Experience includes single variable and multi-variable calculus - High proficiency with application problems; integration techniques, and infinite series - Tutoring experience includes both business calculus and engineering calculus courses
Geometry,

Geometry

I tutored Calculus for 10+ years, which includes geometry applications. In addition, college course work in math has strengthened proof development and analysis, which tends to be first heavily used in high school geometry. For online tutoring, there may be significant use of the geogebra.com web site, to illustrate construction proofs visually.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

In tutoring calculus and other maths over the last 10 years, I have often had to reteach algebra and arithmetic skills.
Precalculus,

SAT Math,

SAT Math

Participated in various math and science competitions while in high school. Scored well on both ACT and SAT math sections. Learned about test-taking techniques and test anxiety while employed as a math tutor at UT Austin.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I tutored Differential Equations for 5 years through UT's Learning Skills Center. I also earned a degree in Mathematics from UT, with course work in Real Analysis solidifying my strong background in calculus, which is a significant portion of the mathematics needed to understand Differential Equations.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I am familiar with multiple topics in discrete math, ranging from probability and statistics to number theory and network theory. As there is some variance in how the subject is taught, potential tutees need to bring class notes and textbooks to sessions.

Knows calculus very well

Jody knows what he is doing. He has been a tutor in mathematics for a very long time and it shows. He is patient and will break down concepts. Most importantly he well not just give you the answer but instead lead you in the right direction.

Sue, 10 lessons with Jody

Great math teacher

You can tell he knows his stuff. Very informative and well rounded on this system along with calculus terms. He did a great job

Joseph, 2 lessons with Jody

Knowledgeable and patient

Mr Bean was able to present a different way to look at problems. Helpful in reviewing concepts. Plan to meet with him again. Appreciated meeting in a location convenient for both of us.
