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.
