Math Tutoring

Since math is cumulative, kids can really struggle if they get behind in a class. Also, the math they didn't learn well may come back to haunt them in future grades and classes. We're math specialists and can help students catch up, master the material, and raise both their grades and confidence.

Math tutoring subjects include:

Core Curriculum / Basic Math
Algebra
Geometry
Pre-Calculus
Trigonometry
Calculus
Linear Algebra

Students will learn to avoid careless mistakes, prepare better for tests and quizzes, and develop stronger, more independent study skills so that they become more empowered to learn on their own.

A Chico local, I grew up in town before moving to the San Francisco peninsula for a while. I bounced around community colleges before transferring to San Francisco State University where I got my B.S. in Civil Engineering in 2015, after which I attended UC Davis and completed my M.S. in Civil Engineering, emphasis Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics, in 2017. From there I spent some time working as a software developer for finite element analysis workflows, and am currently working on learning all I can about modern web development technologies.

While figuring my life out in community college, I started working as a math tutor, and have loved doing it ever since. Over the years I've expanded my tutoring repertoire to include all lower division math, beginning physics, and some lower division engineering courses. When working as a teaching assistant in grad school, I realized I was more motivated by helping students understand topics than necessarily teaching to a group. The ability to connect with a student on exactly the terms they need to convey a concept is important to me, and those connections are why I keep coming back to tutoring.

I'm the kind of weirdo that does math for fun, but when I'm not doing that I enjoy playing video games with my friends, cooking way too much food, and spending quality time with my cats. I also dye my hair fun colors every so often, so you might never know quite what to expect!
