About Duwaine

Math has always been an important part of who I am and has helped me immensely in achieving my goal of understanding the world around me. It has been an integral part of fulfilling my desire to learn how to learn and I want to give back by sharing with you the wonders of being a mathematician. I am a mathematician and academic at heart. I tutored math in high school, as well as math and computer science and chemistry in college. I have a bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Lawrence University and I have worked for the last 10+ years using my reasoning skills as a mathematician to develop into an accomplished problem solver. I have applied these skills in multiple industries, from manufacturing and finance/insurance, to healthcare and information technology.
Motivated and driven, I have learned that teaching, and being a guide for others, is one of the most effective ways for me to stay current with my own knowledge of basic concepts and ensure my own understanding of new ideas. I have learned and tutored math in many different learning environments and I am equipped to introduce you to many different exciting learning techniques that will ensure your success and enjoyment of a subject that exists in every part of our lives.
I have tutored and taught students from ages ranging from 6 to 35 in mathematics, chemistry and computer science during my high school and college years. I have also facilitated the Odyssey Program for the Odyssey Institute, teaching the Theory of Constraints and the fundamentals of thinking processes. My students have successfully prepared for and passed with distinction the common entrance, CXC, GCSE and SAT exams. I have also tutored college students in calculus, algebra, geometry, graph theory, and analysis. During my tutoring engagements, I will identify your unique learning needs and establish with you your most comfortable learning environment and the most suitable teaching approach for you. Leveraging my experience with thinking processes, I will also expose you to learning how to learn so that you can gain and retain even more knowledge than I alone can impart. I also focus on helping you apply the concepts that you need to learn in real world scenarios that are relevant you.
I have observed and heard from many students and adults that they cannot see how they will use math in the real world. My professional experience as an entrepreneur and information technology professional gives me a perspective from which to demonstrate how relevant math can be in the real world, and how important it can be in ensuring success in today’s data driven economy.
Explore the wonders of math in way that makes learning fun and build a foundation or build on any existing foundation to lead your success at any level.
