I am a patient tutor seeking humans who want to succeed in math or stats.
I will diagnose the student for his/her "math mind" and current level of advancement. Then we will interact on actual problems, where the student will provide essential input on the agenda for the lesson.
We often close by looking ahead to the content the student will see next in his/her course.
I appreciate your viewing my bio. I have enjoyed teaching and tutoring since 1995. I have an MS in Mathematics and a BA in Communications-Writing, as well as a Bible education.
I play basketball. I am a 4th-generation Texan by way of California, where I taught and tutored statistics and all levels of math from Basic Math to Analytic Geometry and Calculus, at a plethora of schools at every level from middle school to the university.
