About this pro
Oliver Tutoring was founded by a Yale engineer who has spent several years exploring the cutting edge of pedagogy in order to foster greater interest in STEM subjects. I enjoy seeing students become more excited about STEM subjects (and school in general). I also enjoy when parents and teachers reach out about the growth they're seeing in students.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I regularly review articles on instruction with a particular focus on topics such as STEM pedagogy, mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), and blended learning.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have found that many students prior to college don't have much exposure to scientists and engineers. As I tutor students I seek not only to assist them with immediate academic concerns, but also to serve as a mentor who can support them in exploring STEM fields.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Families most frequently hire me after their student has seen a drastic decline in performance on a math assessment.
