About Calvin

I worked as a middle school math teacher in Florida for 5 years. I taught high school for 1 year and elementary school for another year before I started tutoring exclusively. I have helped hundreds of 3rd graders pass the reading portion of the FCAT. This test is mandatory for promotion in Florida. I help ease anxiety and build the confidence your child needs to succeed. I conducted workshops across the state of Florida including the Upward Bound, Crop, and Care programs at Florida State University. I have a dedicated mission to educating and empowering students. I have tutored thousands of high school students in SAT and ACT prep at CLM Learning Solutions. I have conducted hundreds of 8 person and individual sessions as well as conducted many 25 student workshops to teach strategies for standardized test. I believe that every learner is different and instruction should be tailor-made to the specific needs of each student. I have a passion to see your kids succeed.

At a local magnet middle school in 2003, I posted one of the highest increases in Math scores in the state of Florida. My math class ranked in the top 6 for FCAT mean scores for the entire state of Florida The only schools that had higher averages were schools for the gifted.

I build confidence and generate excitement about the subject matter I tutor. Please contact me to begin your journey toward even greater success!!!

Fantastic Math Tutor!!!

Calvin is tutoring our son who is in middle school. He is an excellent teacher and it is very clear that he has much experience in tutoring kids. He explains things clearly and his teaching style is supportive and very positive. I also like the fact that he is constantly checking for understanding and asks my son to explain a concept back to him- he doesn't simply give questions and point ou
