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.

Explains everything so well. He really makes sure you understand. Was able to meet up at last minute. Definitely recommend him
Tony helped me with the math I needed for my master plumbing license. Very pleased. He was very patient and knowledgeable. He showed up each time on schedule and stayed until I was comfortable with the problems.
Our son's first lesson with Tony this evening went well. After trying to connect with several tutors, Tony responded promptly and was flexible to help fit our son into his schedule to help him this evening. He arrived on time and promptly started to learn our son's learning style in order to help him connect in order to learn from him. He started with strategies to help our son learn how to understand how the ACT/SAT works and how to help him maneuver through it and also worked on specific math challenges. So far, so good...Planning on setting up another session this week.
Tony worked with my daughter regarding Pre-Calculus. He taught and conveyed information so that it is understood. He matched my daughter's pace. He answered her questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Tony!
He is excellent, I booked him for my daughter and I didn’t know him, so I send her the picture of his profile and she was like mom please get him, he is the best teacher I ever had for Math, the way he teaches makes mathematics easy. Based on my daughter’s reviews I will really recommend him as a tutor.
Tony made sure I clearly understood the material, and I feel extremely prepared for my upcoming test, and I will definitely continue utilizing his help!
Tony was very helpful walking me through problems and helping me to figure out the best way to approach problems
Tony has a great method of tutoring. He showed me how to review a problem to determine the best method on how to find the answer.
Very patient and knowledgeable.
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.
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.
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.
