"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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Avery always knows what he’s talking about! He still hasn’t given up on me, even when I make it very, very easy for him to!!

Abby, 14 lessons with Avery

Motivating for teens!

My son was struggling with Trig/Algebra II. Avery’s lively personality kept him laughing. Avery quickly figured out where my son was confused. He made my son explain, show, and understand the problem solving procedures. I would definitely recommend him.

Michelle, 5 lessons with Avery

Professional and knowledgeable tutor

We have been working with Avery for several weeks and we saw an almost immediate improvement in my daughter's grades and understanding of concepts. He is very patient with my daughter and she enjoys working with him. We expect to continue with Avery and to see continued improvement in my daughter's confidence and scores. We have recommended Avery to friends as well.

Liz, 10 lessons with Avery

Excellent!!

My son just started with Avery this past week and for the first time in a very long time, I have seen a sparkle come back into his eyes about his AP Calc BC class. He knows his C can come up now and he is not stuck. He just needed the right coaching and encouragement. We are meeting Avery 3 times this week because my son is so inspired to get this going. He has also staged his ACT math section questions for a later session to ask him about those few as well. Avery is going to be an amazing resource for my son this semester!

Virginia, 11 lessons with Avery

Pleasant, knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Avery spent the hour with my son making sure he understood the fundamentals of problem solving. Instead of immediately reacting to the problem, Avery stressed to him how to decompose the question into its fundamental parts.

Pete, 1 lesson with Avery

Making Progress

You are doing amazing work with my daughter! She feels comfortable working with you, she is learning, and she is becoming more confident! She hasn’t complained about math in over two weeks! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Nicole, 5 lessons with Avery

Another great session!

My son is making progress in each tutoring session. He is understanding geometry better and is feeling much more confident.

Lisa, 6 lessons with Avery

Brilliant

Mr. Avery is so competent and engaging that within the first few minutes made my daughter feel comfortable. My daughter is in advance math and had already written few things she needed help with. Mr Avery simplified everything for her in a short amount of time, and gave her few tips to helpe her solve problems more efficiently. I am grateful for Mr Avery and will definitely continue tutoring with him.

Maisa, 3 lessons with Avery

Great approach to college physics!

Patient and very knowledgeable. Made physics easy to understand. I wish physics were taught the way Avery tutors. I would highly recommend Avery to anyone in need of math or physics tutoring.
