About Stanley


Bio

I recently graduated from the University of Chicago (#6 U.S. News) where I majored in philosophy. An Alabama native, I won a National Merit Scholarship while attending Spain Park High School in Hoover, AL where I also scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT and SAT (35/2340), and was recognized as an AP Scholar with distinction.

I recently graduated from the University of Chicago (#6 U.S. News) where I majored in philosophy. An Alabama native, I won a National Merit Scholarship while attending Spain Park High School in Hoover, AL where I also scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT and SAT (35/2340), and was recognized as an AP Scholar with distinction.

Since I started tutoring, I’ve worked with students of all backgrounds. I have experience with one-on-one, small group, and classroom settings. At the heart of my approach is the belief that every student deserves an engaging teacher who understands the way they learn. It is my goal not only to improve your student's grades or test scores but to help them cultivate stronger studying and test-taking skills.

I work with students on the hard and soft skills of mathematics. I am able to give a number of explanations for the same problem because I have years of experience and insight. I always come to lessons prepared and often with supplementary materials. I know that students looking for a tutor need personalized attention, so I adapt lessons to their needs.

I won a National Merit Scholarship in high school based on my PSAT and SAT scores, and I've been helping others reach their score goals ever since! I teach students the strategies to tackle questions on every section. I work from my very own materials, created in part from past SAT/PSAT tests.

Algebra 1

Extremely talented. Wish we could do in-person. He is flexible with time. My son is strong in math but is currently in an online high school and there is not enough instruction so we are supplementing. If every student could have a teacher like Stanley in middle school, every child would thrive. I can write a book about math teachers; there are far too few that are good at teaching and are nice (this causes Kids to fall behind).

Patient and Explains Everything!

I look forward to arranging additional tutoring with Stanley - he was patient and explained everything to me. Thank you.

Precalculus

He is simply the best. Stanley helps my daughter with precalculus, he always comes prepared with worksheets and homework. If he notices that there is some basic math not being understood he stops and go over it first then he resumes the lesson. We will definitely be using his tutoring for many years to come. Thank you Stanley for all you do.

Stanley is a great teacher

My ninth-grade son enjoyed working with Stanley! He carefully explained the geometry in a way that he could understand. We plan on using him in the future, for sure!!

Renee, 5 lessons with Stanley

First session was great -- ready to book more!!

My son said the session was very good and helped him to better understand the material. He asked for more sessions, which speaks for itself. Stanley was also very constructive in speaking with me on what my son understands and where he needs additional instruction.
