Throughout my academic years, in the public school system and higher education, I have excelled in mathematics. I believe math is necessary for a person to survive in the real world. While attending Harding University High School in Charlotte, NC, I obtained a score of 4 out of 5 on the Advanced Placement Calculus exam. This allowed me to bypass taking Calculus I as a freshman at North Carolina State University, where I majored in meteorology. Meteorology, the study of the weather, requires complex mathematical and scientific knowledge. At the completion of my undergraduate curriculum, I received an A+ in Calculus II and III. In May 2008, I graduated with a bachelor's degree. From October 2008 to May 2010, I taught various math subjects to middle and high school students at two private schools in Laurinburg, NC and Charlotte, NC. I have been tutoring professionally for four years.
For advanced math courses (precalculus, calculus, advanced trigonometry, statistics) I require a minimum of 2 HOURS PER SESSION. I have this policy because my style of tutoring advanced subjects involves more attention to detail. Also, longer sessions benefit the students in understanding how to tackle various tedious problems without rushing. My academic and professional experience provides the most advantageous benefits to students achieving their goals!
My tutoring schedule, if it is allowable, can be flexible for your needs. On weekdays I tutor home-schooled and college students before 4pm and then public school students between 4 to 8 pm. I tutor on the weekends but only if absolutely necessary. Please keep in mind that WyzAnt MUST have your billing information on file before I can help you in the topics you are having difficulty with. Also, I can then have contact with you through phone and provide documentation regarding my experience. Thank you for your time and consideration!
In high school I obtained a top score of 4 out of 5 on the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam. This allowed me to bypass taking Calculus I as a freshman at North Carolina State University. At the completion of my undergraduate curriculum, I received an A+ in Calculus II (more integration based) and Calculus III (multivariable calculus).
I was a math teacher at the Evelyn Mack Academy in Charlotte, NC from October 2009 to May 2010. I taught specialized math to 4th, 5th and 6th graders so they could be prepared for pre-algebra in middle school.
In high school I enrolled in pre-calculus which involves the understanding of advanced trigonometry, advanced functions, analytic geometry, and data analysis. The class prepared me tremendously for future calculus courses I would take in high school and in college.
I scored 670 out of 800 on the math portion of the SAT as a junior in high school. The SAT Math section covers algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry. I am already certified to tutor those individual subjects. Through being enrolled and highly successful in advanced math classes in high school and in college I have become excellent at math! I taught SAT Math preparation at the Laurinburg Institute in Laurinburg, NC and the Evelyn Mack Academy in Charlotte, NC.
At North Carolina State University, I received a grade of B in my "Probability and Statistics for the Physical Sciences" course. The course was required for me to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in meteorology in 2008. Therefore my statistics background is mainly on the undergraduate level. However, I can tutor graduate level statistics depending on the area of study covered.
In high school I enrolled in pre-calculus which included the understanding and manipulating of various trigonometric equations, identities and formulas. This is more advanced than the basic trigonometry encountered in middle school and high school geometry. The advanced trigonometry prepared me for future calculus courses I would take in high school and in college.
Excellent Tutor! — I cannot say enough about Kevin. My recent statistics course has been the most challenging class I have experienced in my academic career thus far. I struggled with the material, but Kevin walked me through it every step of the way. He was not only dedicated and well prepared, but he took a great deal of time between our sessions to construct study guides specific to my needs. He was always availa ...
