My teaching is very interactive - I don't want to provide answers to students, but instead help them find the answers themselves. My goal is to identify the underlying knowledge that is missing - sometimes it is a missing key step on how to set up the problem, other times it is a missing piece of information from several grades past, or maybe its an algebraic trick that is missing. Whatever it is, the goal is to find the skill that the student needs, and then fix that - then the student is able to solve the problem for themselves. It builds confidence and it builds the student up for future successes.

Perfect! My daughter hit a few sections In physics that were not clear and causing issues and Travis was a great help get her back on track. He was punctual, thorough and was able to clearly explain things even with an online session. Would use again.
closeby? Here's a selection of tutoring ads that you can check out.
Superprof can also suggest algebra lessons to help you.
Learning isn't a problem, physics lessons for all!
Taking trigonometry lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
