I'm Asher, a dad of two kids, math and chemistry educator, and senior food scientist.

I bring focus, energy and care to each session, always finding the unlocked potential in my students. I help turn math and chemistry problems into fun, solvable puzzles.

I'm invested in my students' success: academic performance, self-confidence and perspective on learning. I adapt my tutoring style to suit each course, helping see the broader picture with practical examples, relatable conversation and crisp drawings.

Credentials:
* 20 years teaching and tutoring (public and private middle, high school and college)
* 20 years food science research and development experience (math and chemistry in action)
* TX math education certification grades 8-12 (Scored top 2% for Certification and Praxis tests)
* Bachelor of Science: Chemical Engineering (2002), Bachelor of Music Composition (1997) - University of WI - Madison

My schedule is flexible around current weekly students.

What to Bring:
*Current Assignments: to have a direct impact on immediate areas of concern.
*Reference Materials: Whether virtual or tangible, I help students identify and utilize the right reference materials
*Notebook & Writing Utensil: Writing solidifies a concept, by processing, understanding and documenting.
*Calculator: an iphone is OK, but a graphing calculator is best. I encourage liberal calculator use, sometimes Excel
[Graph paper or graphing notebook: advanced topics, as needed.]

Very good math and science tutor

Asher is helping my son navigate online high school courses in both algebra and chemistry. He is very patient with my very quiet boy and he is very good at communicating with me. In these days of online learning for almost everyone, we feel very fortunate to have found such a good tutor.

Mr. Asher's amazing instruction

He did well! He was very friendly and patient, and awesome! I had to come here because my college puts a limit on how much math tutoring you can get. I already feel prepared to take finals this week!

Josif, 3 lessons with Asher

Knowledge and extremely patient tutor

Asher helped my son with Algebra 2 homework. My son left the lesson with a better understanding. He was patient and thoroughly explained each step. Now my youngest son wants him to be his tutor after hearing my oldest brag about his lesson!
