Biography

I've been a professor of mathematics here in Gainesville for about 15 years; teaching primarily at Santa Fe College and the University of Florida. In that time I've had the pleasure of teaching students from a wide range of backgrounds; from middle school and high school dual-enrollment students to men and women in their 50's and 60's coming back to complete a degree. I've taught a variety of classes in mathematics from basic arithmetic and algebra all the way to calculus. And the one thing I've learned from almost two decades of teaching math is that *everyone* can be taught; *everyone* can learn to do math well! Sometimes it's simply a matter of correcting a student's algebra work or filling in gaps in their knowledge. But more often it comes down to correcting a student's way of thinking and studying; explaining the concepts behind the numbers that give it meaning. I take a comprehensive approach---showing students not only how to work a problem but how to approach a problem in order to know where to begin, to know what to do in each specific problem. Understanding both the meaning and the process allows the student to apply the concepts and tailor it to each problem they encounter rather than memorizing a procedure and blindly repeating it on each problem. There's a big difference between tutors that will just work out problems in front of you and a tutor who can teach you how to work out the problems yourself; how to think through the problem. If you're going to spend the time and money to get help, get the right kind of help. Contact me today and let's get started!
