Introduction: Focus-In-Math offers online tutoring in K - 12 and College-Level Mathematics. As a student who struggled with math in high school, I understand how frustrating it can be to not "get it" after hours of studying the same material. Fortunately, I had several teachers who helped me through those tough times until I could understand new concepts unassisted. Their influence helped me to grow to love mathematics and led me to pursue a career in education. As the proprietor of Focus-In-Math, I take pride in providing my clients with a tutor who has strong content knowledge and uses proven teaching methods. I teach concepts first, applications second and ensure clients understand the material covered in each session before moving forward. This system has proven to raise students' grades, and most of all, confidence. As an educator, It gives me tremendous joy when my students understand mathematical concepts and solve problems independently. I tutor the following courses: Algebra Calculus I, II, and III Differential Equations Discrete Math for Computer Science Engineering Mathematics Geometry Linear Algebra Probability Statistics Trigonometry My background includes: Ph.D. Applied Mathematics, WSU. BS Electrical Engineering, SUNY Polytech. MS Teaching, PACE. NYS Teacher Certification in 7 - 12 Mathematics. 25 + years of teaching experience. TI 84 Graphing Calculator Expertise.

Math Tutoring

My daughter loves her virtual tutoring sessions with Dean. He’s an expert in math but most importantly he uses positive reinforcement to help her find her path. She has always disliked math but says that she really enjoys her tutoring sessions! Such a relief to find her support as she enters accelerated classes that she really enjoys. I highly recommend!!

Math Tutoring

After our second session we really started to click. After a rocky first session, it was evident that Dean put in a lot of work to make our sessions work. I highly recommend Dean. Make sure you allow a few sessions before making a judgement, and you won’t be disappointed. He has answered questions no one else could in my high level math classes.

Mr. Dean is the best tutor I've ever came in contact with, regarding my son who has a learning disability. The information that my son received was clear and concise and he was able to understand the work much easier. My son now loves math and he no longer has anxiety from math. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help with math tutoring.

Dr. Edmeade and his teaching skills has proven to increase my child’s grade significantly. His ability to hone in on how a child processes information and how to address his or knowledge deficits in math is remarkable. He is always punctual, professional and never ends a tutoring session without ensuring that the student has learnt the topics reviewed in the respective session. This he achieves by breaking down the mathematical processes in a stepwise fashion thereby making it easier for my son to understand. He allows him to master each step by having my son teach back what taught to him before moving on to more complex topics. Being an excellent tutor is not just about the subject matter being taught it also encompasses the emotional and mental effect of the student. Dr Edmeade’s positive reinforcement and mannerism has also served to build my son’s confidence in math and his overall attitude toward problem solving and mindfulness.

Dr. Edmeade helped me to excel in my college-level Calculus II course. His attention to detail in demonstrating how to solve the calculus problems that I was struggling with clarified which steps I’d missed and/or did incorrectly. Dr. Edmeade highlighted the concepts involved with each step, reminding me of each problem's connection to what I was learning in class. This offered me critical, mathematical insights. In all, I truly appreciated Dr. Edmeade's professionalism, work ethic, and extra effort, as it helped me to greatly improve. Ultimately, I secured a successful final grade in my Calculus II course. Thanks, again, for all your help, Dr. Edmeade! ~ Myan S.
