Qualifications & Experience

I have over 15 year tutoring with thousands of hours logged teaching Math at all levels from Middle School to Grad School. I have significant experience working with students who have taken Algebra, Precalculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Probability and Statistics. I have also work with students in more advanced courses.
I have experience working with AP students and am quite comfortable using the TI-83/84 calculator, as well and many math software packages such as StatCrunch. I also have a lot of experience with Excel/VBA.
I go beyond just solving problems and work with students to prepare for tests and to overcome their fears.

It is hard getting my 16-year-old son to work with tutors, but he will call Scott for help - it has been very helpful!
