Career Experience

As an astronomy researcher studying nearby galaxies, I applied all sorts of math to astronomy problems: algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus and even statistics. During my career, I taught astronomy to undergraduate non-science majors, many of whom were intimidated by math. Teaching them helped me understand that every student has different needs, strengths and learning styles. As a private tutor, I have also helped students with learning difficulties, such as anxiety and ADHD. I understand how their diagnosis presents unique challenges to mastering math.

I Love Tutoring Because

I love to help students become confident problem solvers. Often students know more than they realize, even when they feel totally lost. Sometimes they need a step-by-step review of a problem, but sometimes they just need a nudge in the right direction. A good tutor is a good listener and can identify what approach is best for each student.

Tutor Denis K is awesome. She is very knowledgeable, approachable, and clear. She helped me, she explained, and showed me how to solve my Math problem. I'm not good at Math, but she helped and explain me the thing that I have to know. Thank you so very much!
