I understand the mindset and aspirations of students when confronted with challenges in math. I use a narrative based teaching methodology to explain mathematical concepts to students that extends beyond textbook problem solving and is helpful in handling life situations as well. It is my intent to help my students build mathematical instinct by initiating an inquisitive questioning process through an objective dialog. I use contextual learning as my teaching style to help my students draw c... [more]

I have worked for many years with students who struggle with math. I find that most students who struggle later in math have a weak foundation in the basics. Because of my teaching philosophy I enjoy working with students as early as possible making algebra and pre-algebra particularly important to me even though I tutor math through calculus III. I went to school to study physics and ended up getting a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics. After working in applied physics for a while I realized that I really missed the experience of teaching. My goal now is to continue working at Colleges that f [more]

As a tutor, I strive to improve more than a single grade or subject area by working with my students to develop better habits and study methods.

I believe that with the right kind of support and encouragement anyone can be a 'math' or 'science' person. My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics from the University of ... [more]
