Bio

I'm originally from Tulsa, OK, and I started teaching high school in New York after college. I enjoy building apps, woodworking, and following the NBA. One of my favorite parts of working with students is watching their confidence grow over time. By providing personalized instruction, my goal is to equip you with the tools you need to solve any math problem that comes your way.

Tutoring style

I love breaking down complex problems into bite-size pieces that are familiar to you. While I enjoy finding the answer just as much as the next person, I try to emphasize the "why" behind any methods we are using. That way, you'll be able to apply those techniques even if the specifics of the problem change.

I'll definitely be looking forward to hearing any questions you may have about any concepts or problems. Adjusting the lesson to what makes the most sense to you is very important to me. If you're ever curious about how a math concept is used in the real world, I'm happy to give you some examples.
