Expert Math Tutor – Former College Teacher – 11 Years Experience
Hi! My name is Decker, and I have been a tutor and educator for 11 years, teaching math at UW and BC, and tutoring one-on-one and in small groups. I attended a Top 10 school as an undergraduate and received an Honors Bachelor’s degree in Math, plus a Masters of Business, MBA, summa cum laude, with a GPA of 3.9 out of 4.0. And I have more than 10,000 hours of experience.
I am frie…
VITALIA B. from Bellevue, WA My son is very pleased. Decker is very easy to contact and schedule a lesson. He arrives on time and the lessons are very productive. We will continue to work together as needed. Thank you.
Brea N. from Bellevue, WA We have been using Decker as my sons high school math tutor for some time now. Decker has built a wonderful relationship with my son and has showed a very patient and calm approach when helping my son. Quite often I hear him explaining things that my son might not have grasped in his math class and the way his regular teacher taught it. Decker is always patient and can try different examples of teaching techniques until they are grasped and understood. My son's math grades have greatly improved since we have started our weekly sessions. Thank you.
Charna K. from Seattle, WA Decker is a real professional, qualified and great at delivering what he knows to his student. He has missed a few sessions due to illness, and communication about this needs improvement.
Maureen K. from Bellevue, WA My son had his first session with Decker last night. It went very well. He said that Decker is a great teacher and he thinks he will learn a lot from him. He helped my son get a grasp on concepts that had challenged him.
Susan C. from Bellevue, WA In just two sessions, Decker clarified a few key concepts my daughter was missing in pre-calc. She scored 100% on this week's quiz, and her confidence in math is back. Outstanding.
Marie J. from Bellevue, WA We have had many no-show, no-calls. My son needs consistent reliable help, and really liked Decker's teaching style, but he is not getting the help when he needs it. We are done trying to get him tutored by Decker. We've had our son set up with two other tutors through WyzAnt, and each time we have cancelled out with them when Decker decides he's available again... but then has been a no-show each time. He comes with his own set of rules and contract about not giving him enough cancellation time or being late, the biggest is about transportation fees if you live outside of his made up driving circle. We live in the same city Decker lives, he lives in the North end we live in the South end. He asks you not to share with WyzAnt that he has his own rules. He is an awful communicator, he only seems to want to correspond via email... not convenient when I'm at work, and can't check my emails, which I have told him multiple times almost in each email correspondence. I have even asked him to correspond with my son directly if he can't meet him. His email messages are so cryptic. It's hard to figure out what he is trying to say. When you respond it'll be 1 to 2 days before you hear from Decker again... and get a totally different answer. Don't waste your time. Lot of time is wasted with communicating but so un-reliable. Good Luck!
Piali C. from Sammamish, WA Decker is excellent with our son. He is patient and creative and my son truly enjoys his lessons with him!
