About Cooper


Bio

My name is Cooper and I am a recent graduate of University of South Carolina. In addition to obtaining my B.S. in Environmental Engineering, I am a diehard sports fan and an avid golfer.

Growing up, math was always relatively fun for me. Numbers, patterns and sequences came naturally, and I could always see the "WHY" behind the principles being explained in class. After two years as a peer tutor in college I realized that the math that confused so many of my fellow students just needed to...

My name is Cooper and I am a recent graduate of University of South Carolina. In addition to obtaining my B.S. in Environmental Engineering, I am a diehard sports fan and an avid golfer.

Growing up, math was always relatively fun for me. Numbers, patterns and sequences came naturally, and I could always see the "WHY" behind the principles being explained in class. After two years as a peer tutor in college I realized that the math that confused so many of my fellow students just needed to be explained the way that I saw it. There are many different schools of thought pertaining to mathematics and students nowadays are forced to learn the method that works best for their teachers mind, and not their own! My approach to teaching and learning is "Do what works for your mind". I spend the first session with a student getting to know their methods of inductive and deductive reasoning so that I can better tailor my lessons to each student's unique learning style. I have never met a student I couldn't help and have typically seen improvements a whole letter grade or more!

As a tutor I am 100% committed to your child's success! I use my knowledge and experience to help your student thoroughly understand and become more confident in their problem solving abilities.

Golf

I have been playing golf since I could walk. Throughout high school and college, I worked as a caddie at the local golf course. I also played varsity golf in high school and was on the club golf team at South Carolina. In addition to playing experience, I have given private lessons for the last two years to people I have caddied for. I am a 3 handicap.

Highly Recommended

Cooper is very patient and was very effective helping my son improve his ACT score for math and science by 4-5 points and helping him to achieve the desired composite score. He is reliable and and a very respectful and kind young man.

Kathleen, 6 lessons with Cooper

Very Patient and Efficient

My son, a high school freshman, had been struggling with math for a while. Cooper has been tutoring him since the beginning of the school year and we have seen an improvement. My son understands the material better, and this has highly impacted his grades. His grades have gone up. We are very pleased with the results.

Great Tutor

Our twins really liked Cooper. I liked his approach to the tutoring session. It was only the 1st session, so I will have more to say later. He was on time and very pleasant.

We could not be happier with Cooper!

Cooper was impressive right from the start. He made himself available to the 4-5 days a week we needed help in preparing for the GED. As an adult taking the GED, there was a great deal to re-learn in a very short amount of time. Another tutor wouldn't take our assignment, said it was unrealistic to pass with just 3-4 weeks to prepare. Cooper came in with a 'can do' attitude, was very organized bringing his knowledge learned about the test, best ways to prepare, practice materials, created homework assignments, he sat and walked me through everything, sometimes over and over again until I got it. Above all he was very patient, friendly, we laughed, he made the whole experience tolerable. I wouldn't have passed the test without his dedication to helping me. I highly recommend Cooper for anyone of any age.

Cooper is great!

So happy we found this smart and warm young man. In a single lesson, my son's knowledge and confidence sharply increased. Thank you!

Mary, 2 lessons with Cooper

Great attitude

My son and my son's friend both enjoyed having Cooper as their tutor. He was able to make students refresh their memory and was able to keep boys focused and made it fun to learn.

Anthony, 4 lessons with Cooper

Great Tutor

Very Patient and calm. Helped my daughter with a new understanding of algebra. She had trouble with tests and he gave her practice tests which gave her greater confidence in the classroom, and she is now passing algebra. Last year she failed pre-algebra. This has been the best move we've made with her education.
