###### Teaching Locations:

I won a tutor of the year certificate at the Math tutoring center at Arizona State University back in 2015 and I won a Mathematics competition at my High School in the year 2012. I believe most learning is self-taught, and therefore I first and foremost make sure all students are provided the best resources available for self-learning. In addition, I focus on helping the student build the intuition of the underlying concepts and with easy-to-understand problem-solving tools for particular types of problems.

### About Adam S.

I studied mathematics and physics at Arizona State University and have been tutoring mathematics since January 2013 (I tutored at the largest math tutoring center in the nation (ASU's) for 3 years and got a tutor of the year reward there one year). I am always ready to learn more math and share any knowledge of it with other people (in fact I enjoy doing both!). I believe the best way to learn math is to understand the underlying concepts behind mathematical problems, to understand the problem-solving techniques used to solve specific 'types' of problems, and to question why (to be curious about) certain mathematical truths are what they are.

In High School, I took Geometry, Algebra, Calculus I, and Calculus II and received a 5 on the AP Calculus B/C exam. At ASU, I have taken (for math or math-related) Math for Business Analysis, Introduction to Programming in Java, Object-Oriented Programming in Java, Calculus III, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Structures, Discrete Mathematics, Advanced Calculus I, Introduction to Abstract Algebra, Cryptography I, Number Theory, Cryptography II, Intermediate Abstract Algebra, Engineering Statistics and Probability, Differential Geometry, Honors Microeconomics, Economics of Money and Banking, Excel and Power BI, Probability I & II, Physics I, II, & III, and Mathematical Methods for Physics II, General Relativity, and Classical & Continuum Mechanics.

I'm a CRLA Certified Tutor.
