About Cameron

You may be wondering - why is this "tutor's" hourly rate so high?

The reason I place my hourly rate so high is because I value myself as one of the most effective academic mentors in Houston. I know that may sound like a grand statement but I have a very strong track record (over 10 years) of working with many students and getting the results they want.

I'm not like most other tutors because I don't just teach the material - I show the student how to learn for themselves which is a much more difficult task and requires a great deal of skill and patience (something I have developed over 10 years of tutoring.) I use very advanced techniques and technologies that most other tutors are not even aware of!

In terms of when you will see results: you will see results immediately, however it also depends on what your goals are. I understand that price is a barrier for many people in terms of working with me which is usually why I end up working with only very wealthy families or with those who have a very strong desire to make a drastic improvement in their ability to learn. I may not be the right tutor for you but I have never met a student whom I did not love working with and who did not see the results they were looking for.

Feel free to check out my profile further and you will see testimonials from past and current clients and you can also see that I have logged almost 800 hours just with WyzAnt alone and I have a perfect 5 star rating on every lesson. Of course I understand it's hard to know me just through this profile so I appreciate questions. If you have any please ask! I'm happy to answer them.

I'll tell you a funny story that will illustrate the results that my students achieve: Recently one of my Chemistry students 'complained' that he got into a little trouble with his teacher. I was a bit surprised so I asked him to explain, and he said that he was so far ahead of the class that he was the only student raising his hand and answering all of the teacher's questions. His teacher got 'annoyed' that he was getting so far ahead. Well, I say that is a great 'problem' to have, and I apologize in advance for you/your child's success and confidence, because I might as well say this now: They are going to stand out. If that is not something you want, then again, I may not be the right academic mentor for you. :)

I look forward to helping you or your child make their academic dreams come true!

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.

C++

C++ is simply C with objects. It is one of the more popular languages taught at the university level and gives the student a good background to begin programming.

I minored in Computer Science as an undergrad and studied C++ as part of my curriculum. I received an A in my basic C++ course and I continue to expand my knowledge of C and object oriented programming through independent study.

Differential Equations

I studied differential equations for my undergraduate mathematics degree at the University of St. Thomas. I received a B+ in the course. I have also taken several more advanced courses which require a working knowledge of differential equations.

Linear Algebra

I studied Linear Algebra at the University of St. Thomas and received an A in the course.

Linear Algebra is the study of matrices and their properties. The applications for linear algebra are far reaching whether you want to continue studying advanced algebra or computer science.

Logic

I studied logic, as math major, both in the context of my courses requiring proofs, as well as a separate course (as 'Intro to Mathematics'). I am familiar with set theory, the language of logic, and how to structure and write proofs using logic notation.

I received an A in my logic course and I have since then applied what I learned in all of my proceeding math courses.
