About Dante

Hello! I'm Dante, I have recently graduated from UT Tyler and am currently working as an engineer in the Tyler, TX area. While in college, I tutored algebra, statistics, calculus, trig, and many other topics for the Math Learning Center in the UT Tyler Mathematics Department.

I thoroughly enjoy helping people learn math, as it is something I am passionate about and that I use extensively on a regular basis. I emphasize a conceptual understanding of the material at hand, not a memorized fashion of learning that will only hinder your critical thinking skills. Please feel free to get in touch with me and we can get through whatever problems you have together.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taken many, many classes that require basic algebra 1 skills. So many Algebra 1 is second nature to me. I have taught these skills for years as well.

Algebra 2

Algebra II is the foundation for Pre-Calculus. As you can likely infer, the topics covered in this curriculum are also second nature to me. I like to take my time with students when helping with this subject given the magnitude of laws learned in Algebra I that need to be well understood but are often times not so. Graphical explanations are the best way to gain conceptual understanding of what they (the students) are learning.

Calculus

I finished my senior studies with a theoretical model of a open thermodynamic system using an upper-level calculus technique - the Laplace Transform. I appreciate the beauty of calculus as it is a tool to describe the moving world around us quantitatively. Again, I emphasize a conceptual understanding of each problem for each student instead of pushing them through it and them resulting in just memorizing formulas and steps. I will often point out physical applications where the concepts apply.

Physics

I use the tools learned in my calculus classes to apply them to Newton's Laws of motion, to Bernoulli's relationship, and many more phenomena covered in university physics curriculum. I went through four years of thermodynamic, fluid mechanic, static and dynamic physics classes. Physics is the most fun topic to teach since the concepts to not have to be pointed out, most people experience them every day.

Easy Going and Experienced

Dante has made the impossible and made me feel excited about math, looking forward to passing my semester. He makes sure you understand everything that is being covered, and is very approachable if you have any questions. It is ok to be wrong and not have a clue of what's going on, he is there to get you on track. I am thankful to have found and picked him to help me on this journey.
