what makes him an awesome tutor

I LOVE MATH! Seriously, it is kinda scary.  I was not always the best at math, and I know where students tend to get frustrated because I made the same mistakes.  I like teaching the same concept a few different ways so students can pick the one that is best suited for them.

fun facts

Life Goal: Own my own Structural Engineering Company.

Words to Live By: Mind, Body, Spirit.

Favourite Mathematical Weapon: The derivative.  So many concepts rely on this simple tool.  It is used in Math to calculate slopes and curvature, in Physics to find distance, velocity, and acceleration, and It could also help eliminate risk and save you money in the business world.

When you're not crunching numbers:  I am usually on my laptop building structures using AutoCAD, or hanging out with friends.  In the spring and summer you can usually find me on my bike exploring the city.

What’s the best thing about you? I am a morning person.  I think that when you wake up early you can accomplish so much more in a day.  I tend to feel the need to be constantly productive and usually finish all my homework way ahead of time.

nerd alert! 

I memorize mental math tricks whenever I get the chance.  It does turn out to be pretty useful though!
