Former community college math instructor with over 30 years of teaching experience and former chess master offering tutoring in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, logic, and chess.

Methodology

Each topic that I introduce is either firmly related to a topic that the student has already learned or, if the topic is of a completely new variety, I will provide the motivation for why the topic needs to be learned.

Background

I hold a masters degree in mathematics and have taught math to over ten thousand students during my 30-year career as a community college math instructor. If your goal is to simply pass a math course by any means possible and you're not genuinely interested in math, I'm not the right tutor for you. On the other hand, if you are a dedicated student who is struggling with a math course and you truly want to understand the material, then I am the right tutor for you.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $30/h

Details
