About Anthony


Bio

I learned the value of hard work and focused study from the high quality academic education that I received, and which brought me to graduation from Cambridge University, in England where I was raised. I earned an “upper second”* degree in Geology (BA Honors) (*approx. equivalent to “cum laude” in the US) with a minor in Chemistry, and worked as a geologist for British Petroleum Co Ltd, on international staff for nine years. I have been tutoring now for 25 years, either part or full time....

I learned the value of hard work and focused study from the high quality academic education that I received, and which brought me to graduation from Cambridge University, in England where I was raised. I earned an “upper second”* degree in Geology (BA Honors) (*approx. equivalent to “cum laude” in the US) with a minor in Chemistry, and worked as a geologist for British Petroleum Co Ltd, on international staff for nine years. I have been tutoring now for 25 years, either part or full time. As math, which was a strong component of my education, is always the most in demand subject, most of my tutoring by far has been in math, with the rest being in chemistry and general sciences.

I use a socratic approach to guide students to find solutions themselves. If a student gets stuck, then I will try other ways to explain the problem to them that will help direct them towards the solution. Often I set homework, which may be due the next session, or may be ongoing with check-ins with me. Their improving grades and greater confidence provide me with the professional satisfaction that I have given valuable and valued help.

As a long time tutor, I have instituted a few policies: I seek to be flexible with time, however I do have a twenty four hour cancellation policy, and I do make-up sessions. For in person tutoring, I make it easier for students and their parents by traveling to students’ homes or to a public library local to them..

I have been tutoring predominantly math, either part or full time for twenty five years. Here is a testimonial from one of my students whom I tutored in math from 7th to 12th grade, and occasionally in science:
"Anthony became my tutor in the middle of 7th grade and right away I could tell that it was a good choice.  From that point on up until I graduated high school...He took things that seemed impossible and made them as easy as 2+2.  He tutored me how I needed to be tutored and understood my strengths and my weaknesses.  He pushed me and never gave up on me." Adam A.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve success in your studies. I invite you to contact me today.
