Mathematics Beyond Basic Arithmetic

tutoring & advice

 with Raymond Anthony Gant

short description:
This asset helps students who are having difficulty in geometry, algebra, calculus or differential equations.
long description:
Many students do not like mathematics because they feel they don't have a strong background in it. They shudder at the thought of geometry, algebra or calculus tests. Taking a differential equations course can be even more challenging without a sound foundation in algebra. With this knowledge asset, students who need help can get advice on how to think about, rationalize and approach different types of mathematics problems beyond basic arithmetic. This asset is also available for all other types of math, even including those beyond differential equations.
level of difficulty:
all welcome
minimum class size:
Monday through Saturday, afternoons and nights
fee comments:
This fee is per participant and is open to negotiation.

description of :
I have helped many students, from middle school to college, in mathematics and other science courses, and I have been fortunate enough to assist mainstream students as well as students who have mental challenges such as ADD or Schitzophrenia. I like to present concepts both formally and in a familiar fashion so that students can take ownership of them and also learn how to do the same on their own.

's preferred teaching style:
I try to present formal, possibly complicated information in a more practical way so that it may be better understood. I use a mostly informal teaching style, but I do expose students to more formal, traditional mathematics language. I give exercises after each concept in a building-block fashion.
