Math tutor in Palos Verdes
Harmon was raised in Palos Verdes and attended Palos Verdes High School. He graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. He always had an easier time with math than most of his friends growing up, but seeing how other people struggled is what attracted him to tutoring. He tutored as a volunteer sporadically through the end of high school and college. After that Harmon tutored math at Mathnasium and recently tutored at Study Hut, where he mainly tutored math but also assisted students in general education physics, English, and middle school history. He has tutored kids from seventh grade through twelfth as well as college students. Harmon specializes in tutoring Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, Regular and AP calculus, Statistics, Calculus 3, and Linear Algebra. To Harmon, an important part of successfully tutoring a student is being patient with them and understanding where they might be struggling. Harmon tries to build connection with his students by relating the material to everyday life and using humor to make students feel more at ease with math. Through his experience, he has been able to build math self confidence and lessen test/math anxiety.
