About Scott

I used to develop simulations for the Navy. Some of the systems I worked on were complex, so I learned how to divide problems into smaller pieces. Performance was often critical, so I used various approaches to come up with efficient solutions. In order to manage the quality of my work, I had to develop ways to visualize and clearly understand everything, both at high levels and down in the details.

I try to share these skills when I tutor my math students. It is easy to be unaware of a bigger picture while working with the details, and learning can be frustrating when you don't have a good map or timely help. I usually explain the "why" along with the "how" and I encourage my students to slow down and really understand what they are doing.

Before pursuing my career as a computer programmer, I worked in a few labs and got a BS in Chemistry, so I am also comfortable tutoring Chemistry, particularly at the into level.
