Hi. My name is Doug M. and I have a strong background in Information Technology -IT, sports, Finance, the Microsoft Office suite of applications, and teaching others of all ages. I have my MBA in Finance and Accounting and a BS in Computer Science. With 3 kids of my own, I am very familiar with most subjects, especially math, science, computers, among others. I am also the head soccer coach for Winfield school, so I am used to working with kids ages 12 to 15.
When I was in school, I was in the Advanced Placement mathematics classes and on the math team. I passed out of 12 college credit hours, mostly of BC Calculus when I was a senior in high school. In college, I was chosen to participate in an Accelerated Professional Track program whereby my undergraduate electives were my MBA foundation courses. This made for a very difficult undergraduate course load, taking both undergraduate and graduate level courses at the same time. However, I knew of no other way of living my college life: working as hard as I could and getting the best grades possible. I ended up with a 3.7 out of 4.0 GPA while still holding down a job throughout my Junior, Senior, and single Graduate year. You see, I graduated with my BS in Computer Science in 3.5 years and finished up the remainder of my MBA in an additional 1.5 years. I accomplished all this while still having an excellent social life, too. Many of my friends asked me how I did it and it all came down to time management. If this difficult equilibrium among studies, social life, and work is something either you or your child strives for; please let me know...as I've been through it. I can give you some tips.
Post college, one of my goals was to become an author. So, in 2008, I decided to stop putting it off and get it done. And by 2010, I had completed my first novel. It was an arduous, exciting, and soul-searching process; but I can now say that it is done. It is posted on amazon.com right now. If you want to read it, if only for the free preview, please let me know. I have started on the next book in the trilogy.
Now, my kids are 16, 12, and 12; and I help out with homework as much as I can. Nothing is more enjoyable than seeing one of them or a student grasp a new concept and apply it for the first time. That is something I strive for each and every time I tutor students.
I hope my life experiences, education, and background give you some idea of where I've been, what I've done, and where I'm going. I look forward to tutoring you or your child!
