About him:  He has been teaching mathematics for over 8 years at the college/university level and tutoring for over 15 years.   In the past, he have taught at Austin Community College,  at Vanderbilt University (a top 20 ranked university) and at the University of Louisville.  
      Although the bulk of my tutoring comes from the University of Texas - Austin, he tutored a number of middle school and high school students around town as well.  In addition, he have worked with students from just about every college/university in Austin at some point.
      He also have a number of wonderful people who help him tutor in Austin and Nashville.  Everyone he hire must possess AT LEAST an undergraduate degree in mathematics or applied math (such as engineering or computer science) and obviously be a strong, but patient communicator.  A good tutor anticipates questions before they are ever verbalized by the student.  Teaching is my passion, and he make sure that those who work with me have the same love and enthusiasm for teaching mathematics.
   Often times, people are nervous about getting help in math: don't be!  he tell his students all the time that math is challenging for all of us at one point or another.  His intent is to provide clear and thorough explanations, and to present them in an environment in which the student is comfortable.   Although he do not promise to make someone into an A+ student overnight, with regular help just about every student he have encountered makes significant improvements over time.  Think about learning math in the same way you would learn to play piano or learn another language: it takes time, patience, and LOTS of practice.
     His schedule does fill up very quickly each school year, so feel free to contact me at any point about availability.  He keep a very, very busy schedule, but he is doing his best to respond to everyone within 24 hours. 
  Lastly, he have tons of free math videos that you can view as often as you like. You can also use them as a chance to see my teaching style and methods of explaining different problems.  Of course, in a real life session there is a lot of interaction between us - something that is lacking in the videos, although he os doing his to address common mistakes and common questions in the videos .
