I began tutoring in 2007 shortly after I realized my passion and knack for mathematics. I began my tutoring career as a long term tutor/instructor for a student at my high school who was unable to attend. I served as her sole source of mathematical instruction for an entire academic year. This experience set me up for success as a future tutor of various levels of mathematics.
I refined my mathematical skills and expanded upon that knowledge base when I attended Kutztown University, where I obtained bachelor's degrees in both mathematics and physics. I continued to tutor both privately and in conjunction with a university sponsored tutoring service. I graduated in May of 2013.
I took a brief hiatus from academics from May 2013 through July 2014 to work full time while my wife and I had our daughter in September of 2013. During this hiatus I assisted my grade school aged cousins in their own mathematics coursework while I began the process of preparing to apply to graduate school.
In 2014 I was accepted into the master's program at Montana State University and in August of 2014 my family and I relocated from Pennsylvania. While in Montana, during my own graduate studies, I maintained my tutoring services as much as time would allow (graduate school is a very demanding undertaking).
Now, with my masters in hand and returning to the workforce, I am ready to begin offering tutoring services to the greater Bozeman area.
I offer tutoring services in a variety of mathematics courses ranging from middle school through college level. This typically includes:
- Algebra I
- Algebra II
- Calculus I
- Calculus II*
- Calculus III*
- Differential Equations*
- Advanced Calculus (Real Analysis)*
The courses marked with an asterisks (*) require a special initial consultation before tutoring services can begin. Due to the rigor of such courses it is imperative to know the student's current knowledge and the learning outcomes and/or goals of the course. These courses require significant additional preparation before each lesson.
In addition to mathematics courses, I offer tutoring for high school level physics and chemistry.
For private tutoring sessions, I charge $40/hour. I offer group rates for groups of up to four students: I charge $40/hour for the first student and an additional $20/hour for each additional student.
