About Kramer

Hi there, I'm Kramer.

I've been a dedicated, full-time math tutor for 2 years. I've studied and worked in math education for the last 5 years, with a focus in Utah Common Core, ACT test preparation and Calculus. I also attend the University of Utah part-time, where I study Mathematics and Philosophy.

I do this work because I love it. I've worked as a teacher, I've worked as a teacher's aid, and I've worked as a tutor. I love the flexibility of being a tutor, but more than that, I thoroughly enjoy working one-on-one with students. Allowing a student the space to learn outside of the constraints of the traditional classroom is very rewarding. Sometimes, this openness can be the the difference between a student understanding and not.

As far as my role in that, I offer guidance. I could list off all the rules dictating why the mathematics we're working on functions the way it does (and sometimes that is a necessary first step), but I prefer to behave more like a councilor or a coach. I'm here to show you how to find your own way through a mathematical concept. I suppose, what has made me good at this, is my ability to adjust this guidance depending on whom I'm working with.

Here's to hoping I can be helpful to you. Thank you for your time.

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've worked hands-on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Algebra I concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. The important thing is to make sure these principles are solid, or else every math class after this will be extremely difficult.

Algebra 2

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Algebra II concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. The important thing is to be sure that you understand the way these capstone algebra ideas relate to the rest of mathematics.

Calculus

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Calculus concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. Calculus is my favorite subject and even though it is difficult, it is a beautiful subject. It is an incredibly powerful brand of mathematics and very useful.

Geometry

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Geometry concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. I believe that without a strong basis in Geometry, then all graphical analysis for future mathematics becomes remarkably difficult--not to mention the usefulness of geometry in day to day life.

Logic

As a philosophy minor I've had to take and pass Logic I and II at the University of Utah. I've only ever tutored one other person in this subject, but I'm confident I could tutor anyone who needs help in this subject.

Prealgebra

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Prealgebra concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children.

Precalculus

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Precalculus concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. Without these core principles (especially an emphasis on graphing) then all math after this is unnecessarily hard.

Trigonometry

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Trigonometry concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. I feel like trigonometry is the lost art in early mathematics. It has a bad rap for being too difficult and too arcane, but, once mastered, I've found it to be incredibly interesting and useful.

Great tutor!

Kramer is a great tutor that makes my daughter comfortable with getting help! Highly recommend Kramer. He has a great way of explaining things in different ways until you understand.
