About Tony

I have been tutoring and teaching for three decades, and I get tremendous satisfaction from helping students increase their understanding and confidence. As a lifelong learner, I know what it's like to be a student, so I like to provide no-nonsense answers, plenty of examples, and real explanations. Mathematics has been my passion from a young age, and as I have completed my M.S. and Ph.D. in the subject, the fun has not diminished. One of my greatest strengths as a teacher is the ability to show students that math can be funny, exciting and enjoyable.

I started tutoring when I was a high school student, continued informally through college, and my first job after completing my B.A. was in the tutoring center of a community college. Since then, I have taught in that community college, in two high schools, at a professional tutoring center, and in the Math Departments of two state universities.

Believe it or not, I learn a lot from my students. Everyone has a different perspective, and good teaching is a conversation, in which both people get to see through each others' eyes. Every student asks different questions and sees different patterns. One of the most rewarding things about teaching is how my approach is molded, in some small way at least, by every student I interact with.

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.

Calculus

I have taught many sections of Calculus I, II and III at two different state universities. It is one of my favorite subjects to teach, as well as something that I use on a daily basis in my own research.

Linear Algebra

As an instructor at University of North Texas, I have taught Linear Algebra at the undergraduate level. I use linear algebra on a regular basis in my research as a mathematician. I think it's one of the most fun subjects to teach, being one of the gateways from elementary topics such as calculus to higher, theory-based math classes.
