Hi, I'm Bobby! I would love the opportunity to make a difference in your student's life through tutoring. I will give you a few bullet points about myself, but the main reason to choose me over others is that I am not your typical "did well in school, but not as well in my social life" kinda tutor. I am a ton of fun. I was the president of my student body, Resident Assistant of the year, and I love people, and learning. Students tend to resonate with me, and that makes all the difference. I also was not the biggest fan of high school, but I loved college, and I can help raise the excitement level of your students about college as well.

Many parents hire me because they want their kids to have a good influence around.
Here are some of my accomplishments:
- 1 of 26 in the state of TN to make USA Today's All USA Academic Team
- 1 of 2600 internationally to win the Southwestern Company's Student Excellence Award
- I was awarded $38,000 worth of scholarships and grants, which I can also help out with.
- I entirely paid for my own schooling, and all of my own bills in college
- I have traveled the world on my own earnings

My tutoring credentials:
- I was trained in tutoring by TRiO student support services
- I was trained in motivation by the Southwestern Company
- I have been working on a college campus for more than 8 years now
- I love math, and I can get most students more interested in it as well.
- I tutor middle school, high school, and college students
- I am currently an employed math tutor at Pellissippi State

What I can help you with in college prep:
- Finding the right college
- Scholarships
- Financial Aid
- ACT, SAT, and PSAT
- Getting excited about college

I am good at what I do, and I love doing it. Hopefully we will get the chance to meet each other soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ISEE

I have been tutoring the SSAT and ISEE for the past year now. I have used the offical SSAT prep book, the Princeton Review prep book, and the Kaplan Prep book, as well as numerous websites. I have also memorized the 300 most common SSAT/ISEE words, and have created a system to teach them to my students. I would love the opportunity to help your student get into the private school of their choice!

Study Skills

I do academic coaching with students where I start teaching them organizational skills, and goal setting. I then provide accountability to the students by having them email me their goals every day so I can keep up with their progress. I also meet with them once a week to to teach them a different skill to focus on for the week, and tutor them in any areas we find gaps. I was trained in tutoring by TRiO student support services - I was trained in motivation by the Southwestern Company - I have been working on a college campus for more than 8 years now.
