I want to help students gain understanding into the problems they solve: I do not want to teach them simply how to solve problems, but more fundamentally why problems can be solved in particular ways. In doing so, I want to enable students to become true problem solvers who think logically and creatively.

About Wes M.

I am trained in philosophy (B.A., University of North Texas, and M.A., Biola University) and have been teaching/tutoring for over five years in math, reading, writing, SAT/ACT, and critical thinking/problem solving. I have taught a wide range of ages, from elementary to graduate students, and in classrooms of 100+ students to one-on-one lessons. Ultimately, I love to learn and teach, and I have a passion for helping others achieve their goals.

My students can expect to learn to think well about the subject we study together. We will not simply pursue the knowledge of how to, for example, solve some math problem, but we will also seek to understand why we can solve it this or that way. So, we will pursue both knowledge and understanding. When students have understanding, they are much better prepared to apply what they have learned to other similar problems. My students will learn to be creative, logical thinkers who can apply what they learn to their studies and beyond.

Wes is a very considerate tutor who will most certainly help you improve. He is always on time never missed a class and even spent some of his time in order for my son to understand the lesson. I higly recommend him he truly deserves the 5 stars. In a matter of a month he helped my son improve drastically in his SAT. In which helped him get accepted to a Univeristy. Thank you Wes
