I was an outstanding math student in my younger days, competing and often winning at state-level competitions in high school. The key to most Probability problems is figuring out how to set them up correctly. That part can be interesting and challenging, as very different-looking problems may in fact reduce to the same mathematics. The solutions are then generally straight-forward, and only require a very few formulas to be memorized. A few hours per week of one-to-one interaction can do wonders for your understanding of difficult subjects. I teach math (pre-algebra through calculus and st [more]

As an experienced and patient tutor of physics and of math subjects through calculus and college first year linear algebra and differential equations, my great delight is in seeing the "light bulb" of comprehension in my students' faces. These subjects are not as difficult as they often seem to my students before they meet with me. My concrete illustrations and introductory exercises have been highly successful in getting students on track for academic success and in recognizing their own unt... [more]

"The key to education is to get to them before they realize that they're learning" - Unknown. Rather than teach a specific set of material, I prefer to give my students a set of mental tools that enable them to tackle the target material and use the subsequently developed analysis skills to find better ways to learn. I will require you to comprehend concepts and will not teach rote memorization methods unless special needs call for it. I have taught middle and high school classes on math ... [more]

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy and I am willing to travel to a location convenient for the student.... [more]
