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.
