Hello everyone!

My name is Truxton B., and I am ready to tutor you!

I am a senior at the University of Delaware majoring in Civil Engineering. I am also 1 class shy of an associates degree in Architectural Engineering at DTCC. I have taken math courses that include Algebra 1, Algebra 2, trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Multivariate Calculus, and Differential Equations. I can tutor in any of those subjects with services described below:

1.) Homework help! I've been there, and I know how important homework is.
2.) Test prep! Colleges and high schools enjoy testing students, then giving grades.
3.) General tutor sessions: Any topic in the above courses!

I am also quite a strong chess player and the President of the Blue Hen Chess Club. I have taught many students how to excel with chess, and I can help you also! My chess accomplishments include a strong record against 3 different IM's, with a w/l/d record of 1/0/2. I won the reserve section of the DE state championship. My USCF rating in standard time control is 1860 with a w/l/d record of 24/8/12 and my USCF rating in blitz time control is 2002 with a w/l/d record of 22/9/4. If you are new to chess, or rated under 1700, then I am the tutor for you! My coaching services are below:

1.) Review your past games! The key to improvement is to identify your weaknesses, and faults in thought process, and not do that in the future.
2.) Play me in a game! We will do post game analysis, and a live video for your records, and posted on YouTube, if you like. This way you can hear my thoughts, during the game and after.
3.) Thematic lessons: Tactics, strategy, thought process, calculation, tournament prep, opening/endgame principles.

I look forward to hearing from you!
