About Gideon

I am a math and English tutor with several years of teaching experience. I have a bachelor's degree from Baylor University, and I am completing a Ph.D. in philosophy from Saint Louis University. I live in Mobile, Alabama, where I've most recently been an adjunct professor at both the University of South Alabama and the University of Mobile. I am an avid reader, an active writer, and a math enthusiast.

I scored a perfect 800 on the Quantitative section of the GRE, and took many mathematics courses at the collegiate level. Even now, I still enjoy learning new math in my spare time. I am excited by the opportunity to communicate my enthusiasm to students, and to give them the skills necessary to solve whatever problems they might encounter in their coursework.

As a graduate student in philosophy and an adjunct professor, being able to read and write excellently - and teaching others to do so - was part of my job. I can teach you to write more clearly, to organize your thoughts more effectively, and to improve your grammar and style. I can also teach you how to understand and interact with the books or articles you read for class.

English and mathematics can be daunting or frustrating subjects for many students, but they don't have to be. With practice, material that used to seem very difficult can become straightforward - or even enjoyable! I look forward to the opportunity to help you maximize your potential.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

While I did not take the ACT exam for college, I scored a 770 (99th percentile) on the mathematics section of the SAT and a perfect 800 on the quantitative section of the GRE. I took numerous college-level mathematics courses and continue to have recreational interest in mathematics. I can make mathematical concepts that seem very difficult clearer and simpler, and I can work with you at your speed - slow or fast doesn't matter to me!

SAT Math

I scored a 770 (99th percentile) on the SAT Math when I took it in 2005, and have extensive educational background in mathematics (multiple college courses) - I would be happy to provide documentation upon request.
