"I have a degree in mathematics from Arizona State University. To get this degree, I had to become an expert in Calculus, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. I took 5 semesters of Calculus, the last two semesters being Advanced Calculus and Differential Equations.

The classes were difficult and challenging-- beyond what I learned in high school AP Calculus. I had to become an expert in Calc 1, 2, and 3. I also took Abstract Algebra, Linear Algebra, Partial Differential Equations, and many statistics classes.

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for math. In elementary school, I was always a couple years ahead of my classmates. I studied math books (even in my free time) in the library that were a couple grades above me with other accelerated students in my class. From an early age, the knowledge I have acquired in mathematics is a culmination of a love of the subject and lots of hard work.

At this point I can say I've tutored hundreds of students as a private tutor. I travel to people's homes, meet at local libraries and coffee shops, and even do sessions through Skype. I've worked with middle school kids who are learning the basics of algebra for the first time. I've also helped college students taking Calculus for Business and Economics. I enjoy helping people who feel that math is impossible, and guide them to a place of understanding and enlightenment.

Through patience and hard work, it can be achieved. I love seeing the "aha" moment, when the lights go on for that student. I have helped numerous students pass a math class they felt was impossible at first. I have lost track of how many students I have helped accomplish their goals, move on to the next step in their educational pursuits, or move on to their dream career, after they got their required math classes out of the way. Getting calls from students and parents, thanking me for all my help, after receiving a passing grade, is what motivates me and makes me enjoy what I do.

My specialties are Calculus, Pre Calculus, Algebra 1," less...
