Mathematics wasn’t easy for me. I was the student who needed tutoring and summer school. 

I found my love of teaching through math. As a tutor in college, I had my “Aha!” moment as I helped a friend who was struggling with math. His sincere “thank you” when we finished made me realize I had a teaching skill. Even though learning wasn’t easy for me (and maybe even because it wasn’t easy for me), I found my place in helping others learn in a field dominated by difficulty.

After teaching and tutoring for over ten years, I saw the need for a locally-owned tutoring company that provides one-on-one tutoring to meet each student’s individual needs. As the Lex Math Tutor's founder and owner, I ensure all students feel welcomed and supported.

I have always been passionate about school and learning, but it took me a while to figure out my calling in life, as teaching/tutoring is a second career for me. I started my first career in human resources and training/development before moving on to the Thoroughbred industry. After a few years in this field, the stars aligned, and I returned to school to become a special education teacher. 

I have helped struggling learners realize their potential through personalized attention and intentional focus. Utilizing various learning strategies, I differentiate my instruction to meet learners in their development zone. I aim to work alongside students to ensure that they are successful. 

Reviews on Google and Facebook:

LP: "Tyler is extremely professional, prompt at appointment time, and very knowledgeable about math. Great with our 7th-grade son that needed help in pre-algebra.  He was very patient and kind in his teachings. Really appreciate this service, especially with my kids going to a hybrid school with 2 days of homeschooling a week. It helps mommy and child from getting frustrated with each other!!! THANK YOU, TYLER!"

KM: "Super helpful! Very nice and professional. I would definitely recommend for math help!"

JV: "Tyler is extremely professional and easy to work with. My daughter needed an AP Calculus tutor, and he has helped her tremendously. Her scores have improved and she’s gaining the skills and confidence needed to score high on the AP exam. Highly recommend."

ZB: "In the experience I have had with Lexington’s Premier Mathematics Tutoring, it has been clear that they care about student success. My tutor, Tyler, took his time and ensured that I was understanding the concepts I was learning and not just a given homework problem. All teaching was very easily understood and widely applicable."

DR: "Tyler is a fantastic math teacher for my daughter.  He teaches in a way that she can relate to, and he finds ways to teach in a fun way.  Additionally, Tyler is always prompt, easy to reach, and reliable.  Great tutor!"

AB: "Tyler is amazing. He really helped me understand my college math course when I needed a little extra help. I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a math tutor; he’s a total lifesaver."
