About Avery

"As I seek first to understand and then be understood," students engage the tutoring session.

With 25+ years tutor experience and BS/MS degrees in Physics, I am familiar with applied Math from Arithmetic through Statistics and beyond. My humble college start without college preparation classes in high school, helps me empathize with students in their academic struggles of all ages. Subsequently, my empathetic style involves helping students identify and master basics.

For 9 years, I trained hundreds of tutors and program administrators around the country as a Master Level Trainer for national professional certification program at different levels (Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced).

Moreover, I help students clearly communicate their thoughts, ideas, and explanations during face to face tutor sessions - very important for any tutor. Why is this important? As students practice more short and abbreviated communication through texting, Facebook, etc., they need assistance with sharing complete thoughts during the tutor sessions - especially Math and Science.

Great tutor!

I had been out of school for fifteen years and was taking on calculus for the first time in my life. I was completely lost. After a couple of sessions with Avery, I felt much more comfortable with the concepts and my next exam yielded a 92! He even came on a last minute request for me once, great guy. Highly recommended.
