Schuyler Dunphy, math tutor

Schuyler Dunphy is now accepting new students for math tutoring services in North Seattle, Shoreline and nearby communities. Formerly a fish biologist, Schuyler (pronounced Skyler), began volunteering as a tutor for Catholic Community Services when nerve injuries sidelined him from his research position. He now offers private tutoring for students who are struggling in their classes or seek to achieve top grades in preparation for college.

“Recent research indicates that it is not helpful to categorize people as inherently good or bad at math,” he says. 
“Unfortunately, parents often call their kids ‘smart’, thinking that this encourages them and boosts their self-confidence. However, challenges in the academic and professional world are inevitable, and encouraging students’ perseverance in the face of obstacles is a more helpful in fostering long term success.”

As a tutor, he wants to foster his students’ ability to learn independently and appreciate that getting stuck on a math problem is unavoidable and an opportunity for growth.

More information about Schuyler’s services can be found at his website.
