About GLENN

I have an expertise in education and financial solutions. In my previous experience, I have also worked in South Florida mentoring in a Florida high school where I also conducted testing for ESL students, and reading comprehension and math tutoring sessions. Having served as an adviser for the Mentoring Future Leaders program in high schools, I was awarded a community service excellence award.

I am excited about teaching and learning. There are a lot of tutors to choose from, but if we work together, you will realize the difference and the joy that comes from mastering a subject and building confidence. I employ humor, real world examples and the meaning behind the coursework to ensure excellent results.
