I am a full-time professional tutor with a great deal of experience in both individual and group atmospheres. My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study skills/time management coach. My easygoing approach to students’ difficulties along with my study/life skills coaching has helped students achieve unmeasured success. I regularly help students raise their grades by 2 or more letters. Recently, I helped a failing geometry student score an A- on his final and pass the course with a B. While living in California, I was employed by the San Diego Board of Education as a tutor for the AVID program, a group style tutoring initiative to assist high school students with difficulties and increase their motivation to learn. Upon my return to Knoxville, I began tutoring U.T. student athletes as an employee of the University of Tennessee. I also sub for Knox County Schools and a local private elementary school when my schedule permits. I am a devoted husband and step-father, and in my spare time I enjoy swimming, bicycling, reading science fiction novels, and studying advanced calculus.

Superior tutoring for ACT! — We received my son's ACT scores this morning, exactly what we were hoping for, a six point jump!! We really want to thank you for the excellent help you gave to our son in achieving this. Without your excellent tutoring this would not have been possible. With this higher composite score he has obtained a $4000 year scholastic scholarship. Thank you again ...
