Hi, my name is Curtis. I have been teaching and tutoring mathematics for over twenty years. Starting in high school in Connecticut and continuing through my college days at Cornell, I have enjoyed helping others to better understand mathematics in order to improve their test-taking experiences. I find it very rewarding to see the individual success that each of my students has gained through our tutelage. I enjoy tutoring students of all ages from elementary to college level. I am also ava...
Our son and Curtis clicked right from the start, and worked together once a week during the summer. Curtis gave us positive feedback after every lesson. As a result our son raised his Math SAT score by 80 points!!

Curtis worked with my son on preparing for the Florida FSA in math. He raised my son's confidence and helped us identify areas that we needed to review more in-depth. Curtis showed my son different ways to solve the problems when his teacher couldn't be bothered to explain it in a way that he understood. I highly recommend Curtis for math tutoring.

We secured Curtis a number of months back to teach Geometry to my son. We have never regretted this decision. Curtis has the patience of a saint. He is always encouraging, and to say that he is knowledgeable in his subject matter, would be an understatement. My son has made gains in Geometry due to Curtis' efforts. He is a brilliant, kind tutor who never disappoints!

Curtis has been intermittently tutoring my high-school daughter in Algebra 2 as well as helping to prepare for the SATs this entire school year. He is easy to communicate with both in terms of planning and working with my daughter - and always has positive feedback and constructive advice following every lesson. His manner is relaxed and approachable. Best of all, he is reliable and courteous - if you send him a message, you can count on Curtis to reply promptly and ready to help.

Curtis knows exactly what he is doing and really made me understand Calculus 1 a lot better. He was very well prepared. Looking forward to next session.

Curtis tutored my daughter in precalculus. He helped her understand precal in a new light. Curtis showed her different tools and ways to understand it. He was very patient with my daughter and very professional. My daughter has gone from an F to B+ thanks to Curtis.

Curtis helped my son with 8th grade Algebra 1. Gave my son the self confidence to tackle more complex problems and helped him eliminate a lot of his testing mistakes. Highly recommend Curtis for not only keeping everything on track and building his grade but also for building math confidence.

Curtis is a very good tutor. He is extremely prompt when starting his lessons and very accommodating with his time to work around our busy son?s schedule. He was able to tutor on very short notice as well. He helped raise verbal SAT by 60 points and also with advanced high school statistics. As important as his knowledge was his easygoing manner and ability to build rapport with our son. Frankly it was much easier to get our son to participate in the tutoring than in the past because Curtis was able to make the sessions enjoyable. Thank you Curtis!

My daughter's have been working with Curtis a few weeks now I've seen a difference in my 10 yr olds math ,she's more confidant with her work. She looks forward to Wednesday night for her tutoring lessons. She likes how Curtis goes at her pace and explains things really well.

Mr Curtis is relatable to the student. He is understanding, patient, and explains things very well. He is very smart, and he showed flexibility with the schedule. We will contact him again

Curtis tutored me on Discrete Mathematics. He was able to help me to feel relaxed and genuinely wanted to help me succeed. I've had two tutoring sessions with him and would not hesitate to have another session with him if needed. Thanks again Curtis!!

Curtis is extremely patient and helps to explain why you are using a certain formula. He helps you to look a problem differently and works to resolve it with you. Thank you Curtis!
- Nicholas S. from Johnston, RI
Curtis was very patient and knowlegeable in prepping my son for a advanced college Discrete math class for computer science. He was able to focus on key principles in a short amount of time which allowed my son to come away with a better understanding of these concepts. I would highly recommend Curtis in the future!!!
- Zach A. from Bozrah, CT
Curtis helped me with the basics and beyond of Precalculus. My confidence has improved immeasurably. I recommend Curtis whole- heartedly.
- Stacey T. from Manchester, CT
My parents hired Curtis Y. to teach me math and help me prepare for the ACT and SAT in a few weeks. I want to improve my scores from earlier this year. I thought a tutor would make me feel dumb, but instead, I felt like a genius! Mr. Y's easy going and patient style allowed me to open my mind and remember concepts I had already learned in class. I'm so grateful to my mom and dad for finding him. Working with him gives me confidence that I'll do much better on my SAT later this month and my ACT in December.
