About Adam

I love tutoring because of the peace and relief that I can help bring to my students. I care deeply about the success of those I tutor, and one of my greatest joys is being a part of helping those I tutor achieve their goals. I love helping those who have not been in school for a while, as well as those who struggle to keep up with their current course load. I enjoy connecting the concepts I am teaching to practical, real-world applications, so if the abstract nature of what you are learning turns you off, I would love to help show you how you can use it outside of an academic setting.

I have four years of tutoring experience outside of Wyzant. I specialize in entry-level statistics, college algebra, remedial college math courses, and entry-level accounting courses. I prefer to work with students who are behind in their coursework, and I am very good at making the daunting task of finishing a class seem more manageable.

My philosophy of tutoring is that I am in a place to help you with concepts that you have trouble understanding, not merely helping you complete your work. I strive to add the maximum value possible in each session, so I ask that you have questions and concerns written down before each lesson.

I charge 28 dollars per hour, but I am willing to negotiate lower prices if you decide that you want to use me for more than 5 sessions. I can travel or meet online. I have a 3 hour cancellation policy for online sessions, and a 24 hour cancellation policy for in-person sessions.

I am very good at making math understandable to those who dislike it or are frightened of it. I excel at connecting concepts from Math courses to the real world, and I have a passion for making sure you understand the concept, rather than merely the process involved in solving problems. I used to hate math, so even though I now have a passion for teaching it, I understand where you are coming from if you hate or fear it.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, and even if you are worried about the fee or anything else, please just let me know.

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 four years of experience tutoring students in every topic involved in Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I have four years of experience tutoring a "College Algebra" course, which is an Algebra 2 level college course.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel is one of my favorite programs, and I regularly tutor people in its use. I use it nearly every day for a variety of purposes, and I am well qualified to teach both the basics of spreadsheet use, as well as the use of PivotTables and PivotCharts.

Prealgebra

I have worked with college age students for four years teaching some of the basic concepts found in Prealgebra. Whether you are a parent with a young child going through the course, or a college student who is taking remedial courses, I will work with you so that you understand the material and are able to efficiently apply it.

Statistics

I have four years of Statistics tutoring experience at the high-school, undergraduate, and graduate level.
