Bio

Howdy! My name is Tristan and I'm committed to helping others understand the joy of mathematics. I personally have loved math since I was a kid and have continued to do so ever since. I graduated from Texas A&M University with both a BS and MS degree in Mathematics and I am now a PhD candidate at UT Austin. I have tutored many high school students in subjects such as Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Statistics, Calculus, Physics, and more! I love being able to assist those who...

Howdy! My name is Tristan and I'm committed to helping others understand the joy of mathematics. I personally have loved math since I was a kid and have continued to do so ever since. I graduated from Texas A&M University with both a BS and MS degree in Mathematics and I am now a PhD candidate at UT Austin. I have tutored many high school students in subjects such as Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Statistics, Calculus, Physics, and more! I love being able to assist those who need help in these subjects and I would love to share my love of mathematics with your student. I was valedictorian of my senior class in high school so I know what it takes to work hard and understand tough problems. I can assure you that math will become a breeze to your student after working with me!

I've taken many Math courses throughout my education prior to college. I've competed in academic competitions for 7 years and know tricks and tidbits to making Mathematics more comprehensible to the uninterested Math student. My love for Math persisted through college as I majored in the subject and took on Graduate Math courses. Mathematics has always come easy to me and I know with patience and time, I can show your student the same ease.

I've taken three years of Physics in high school, and participated in Physics courses at the college level, earning the highest ranking on 5 placement tests of this subject. I've also competed in academic competitions for Physics and won 1st at the State level during my senior year. I have a Physics minor that can be used to help your students from Mechanics to E&M and even some basic Thermodynamics.

I've worked with 4th graders my senior year as a tutor in writing as well as Mathematics and know the patience required to work with students at this young age. I guarantee I will never give up on students. Their benefit is my first priority, always.

Feel free to contact me at any time via Wyzant email and we can work out a schedule to assist your student. I cannot wait to meet you!

Extremely helpful and very professional

I am very please with my daughter session. Tristan was helpful and patient. My daughter feels much more confident going into her final exams. I would definitely recommend this tutor.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Tristan

Very helpful

Tristan was very helpful in assisting my son with his physics and algebra problems. Was very well prepared and answered my son’s questions thoroughly. Highly recommended.

Cheryl, 2 lessons with Tristan

Extremely Knowledgeable and patient

Tristan taught me how eigenvectors can be related to linear transformations. He was very patient and knowledgeable as he answered all my questions, and by the end of the session the whole section came together in my mind, because of him. Would recommend him to anyone who needs help in math, as he explains abstract concepts very well.
