My name is Lewis. I received my bachelors degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. I attained my bachelors degrees in Economics as well as Applied Physiology and Sport Management. I have three years of tutoring experience. During my undergraduate career I served as a high school tutor for Group Excellence. Group Excellence is a tutoring company that provides their services to underperforming and poverty stricken schools.
As a tutor for Group Excellence my primary duties dealt with STAAR preparation. We focused solely on the math portion of the exam. As member of Group Excellence during 2008-2010, I was a part of the cast that helped Samuel High School improve their school rating from unacceptable to acceptable and helped them avoid being closed down.
Also, for the students that didn't need STAAR preparation tutoring, I helped those students with Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Pre-Calculus and Calculus. My tutoring approach entails isolating a student deficiency and taking a customized approach to strengthen their weakness.
Moreover, I like to integrate real life application to keep the student actively engaged and I'm a firm believer that repetition is the only way to master a subject. Repetition allows a student to learn a subject in depth and perpetuates the work ethic that is necessary to be successful in that area.
