For 12 of the past 16 years I have worked in various schools in the greater Washington DC metropolitan as a specialist in behavior management and as an academic supplemental services provider. I have been both a long and short term substitute teacher, and a Youth Corrections Officer as well. I have a well rounded skill set, and very cable of identifying and proficiently addressing the needs of most youth. For the last two years I have worked primarily as a stay at home father and mentor to a small group young men.
My approach to tutoring is simple. Meet students were they are, and provide the formulas and strategies to get them where they need/want to be academically. Students are the bar. In conjunction with the goals of their parents and the standards set for the state/school, we all begin the process of skill attainment, critical thinking, subject mastery, and goal achievement. I truly do believe youth can be high achievers, and I have spent the greater portion of my professional career helping youth reach those goals.
I look forward to and am honored to assist in bringing your child's higher achievement goals to fruition.
