...I love being able to work with students and clients to help them better understand mathematics. The moment when a challenging problem becomes a "no-brainer" is the highlight of my week. That is the energy that I bring to my sessions.

...I also know that exploring many methods is the best way to build conceptual understanding of math. In many math classrooms today, teachers show their students one way to solve a problem, and then the students simply mimic a series of steps. This approach does not promote conceptual understanding!

...It is from these individual sessions that I find the students learn the most. My tutoring style is strongly influenced by the positive experience that I gained from these personalized instruction with students. Each student has a different way of learning a subject.

I am the son of a teacher, and have tutored friends and peers while in high school, college and also after college. Both having a teacher for a mother and also working with friends has reinforced the following reality: teachers are people too. These experiences taught me that the teacher is a friend or a partner in the challenge of attaining new knowledge.

...Set theory, combinatorics, graph theory, propositional logic, mathematical induction, boolean algebra. Fun stuff! I have taken (and received an A) in college level discrete math (i.e. math for computer scientists vs. calculus), and am approved to teach discrete math via another tutoring company, where I passed their 50 question test with a 90% success rate.
