what makes him an awesome tutor
Everyone learns math at their own pace and using their own language. My goal as a tutor is to find how best to individualize lessons to make sure you have a strong foundation in math. This is why I focus on getting to know your learning style, seeing which areas give you more pause, and then figure out how best to work through it with you specifically. Learning math is often about patience and enthusiasm, both of which I can promise any student that comes to me looking for help.

I can tell you just about anything you want to know about stars and the universe. Different types, how they came to be the way they are, my friends and I even came up with a “monster mash” remix to remember the life cycle of average stars.
