About Calvin

I am a recent college graduate born and raised in Washington DC. I completely understand the obstacles that children are faced with every day in this community. In order to overcome these odds and not become a statistic that we all here about on the news each night, I decided the pursuit of an higher education was the only way. In four years I managed to obtain 2 undergraduate degrees from 2 different universities; earning a bachelor's in sociology from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a bachelor's in social work from Salisbury University. I am working full time in the district but I am not fulfilling my itch to help out my community.

I believe participating in this program is a great way to help out my community. I am able to emphathize with adolescents and children who are in shoes I once was in not too long ago. I did not excel greatly in my grade school years and I often wished for an older peer to assist me in my work. I also wished for someone to motivate me to want to learn and better myself. I promise to do my best to counsel, mentor and assist children and parents who want to be helped.

I caught on to math a bit better than my classmates growing up. I have a passion for advanced vocabulary. I was a substitute instructor for a couple of months and I taught theses courses at Jobcorp. I believe history is very important to where we are today.

Students, Parents and loved ones, I am here to help.
