Thanks for looking at my profile! I have been teaching and tutoring math and the sciences since 2001, and I am extremely comfortable with the material and how to tutor it to the individual student. I specialize in math from basic algebra through advanced calculus, as well as physics with and without calculus. Within my travel radius, my fee on Wyzant is what you see. I do not go up nor down with that fee because at that level, I can fill my entire schedule, and I don't believe in wasting eit... [more]
