My name is Cooper and I am a recent graduate of University of South Carolina. In addition to obtaining my B.S. in Environmental Engineering, I am a diehard sports fan and an avid golfer.

Growing up, math was always relatively fun for me. Numbers, patterns and sequences came naturally, and I could always see the "WHY" behind the principles being explained in class. After two years as a peer tutor in college I realized that the math that confused so many of my fellow students just needed to be explained the way that I saw it. There are many different schools of thought pertaining to mathematics and students nowadays are forced to learn the method that works best for their teachers mind, and not their own! My approach to teaching and learning is "Do what works for your mind". I spend the first session with a student getting to know their methods of inductive and deductive reasoning so that I can better tailor my lessons to each student's unique learning style. I have never met a student I couldn't help and have typically seen improvements a whole letter grade or more!

As a tutor I am 100% committed to your child's success! I use my knowledge and experience to help your student thoroughly understand and become more confident in their problem solving abilities.

Golf

I have been playing golf since I could walk. Throughout high school and college, I worked as a caddie at the local golf course. I also played varsity golf in high school and was on the club golf team at South Carolina. In addition to playing experience, I have given private lessons for the last two years to people I have caddied for. I am a 3 handicap.
