About Scott

I am a patient tutor, with teaching experience and a scientific background.

When I developed complex simulations for the Navy, I learned how to divide problems into smaller pieces and clearly explain them to my coworkers, from the highest levels down into the details. The work was often difficult, but teamwork made it fun.

Learning is often frustrating, but getting timely help makes a huge difference. When I work with my students, I share my thoughts on how to approach each problem, not just to help complete the homework assignment, but to explain the "why" along with the "how". When time allows, I have my students rework specific problems in more intuitive ways, to encourage them to check their work and to help them recognize the patterns commonly found in tests. When I see a need, I also provide simple problems to refresh the more basic skills.

Before pursuing my computer programming and math teaching careers, I worked in a few labs and got a BS in Chemistry, so I am also comfortable tutoring Chemistry.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

AFOQT

I have been teaching and tutoring for several years, but I also have many years of experience developing DOD simulations and working in technical environments.

I look forward to helping students prepare for vocational tests, and when I work with them, I try to bridge the gap between their own experience and the skills and knowledge needed in the workplace.

I have recently helped a student successfully prepare for the ASVAB.

Great tutor!

My son said he wants to continue working with Scott. He likes the way he tutors and he likes the different examples he gives him to understand what he's working on.
