About Rodney

In today's society, receiving a good education is a pivotal step to reaching your life goals. As a motivator, a trainer, and as a person who leads by example, I take pride into helping, educating and encouraging others who need my advice or assistance. In addition, I am also a good listener for those who need a good listening ear. One way that I help others is to tutor math students; from children who are in their early grade school years, to young adults seeking a higher education. I may not be a teacher or an educator by trade; however, my communication skills and my expertise with assisting others in need, along with my math skills, are more than sufficient to help a student improve his or her grades in mathematics.

During my years in the banking industry, I have acquired customer service and communication skills and I also learned to train and educate co-workers, internal and external customers on various processes and procedures. These skills are vital in tutoring students, especially a subject where many students struggle with. I started my tutoring business in 2012, and use the same approach when communicating with students and parents about providing assistance in the subject. Now that my tutoring business has become a full-time practice, I am able to provide the personal touch that a student needs to learn and eventually master this subject we call mathematics.

During my grade school years, I excelled in mathematics. In 8th grade, I was introduced to Algebra I, and finished my grade school days taking Trigonometry and Functions, in which I achieved grades of a B+ or higher. In my junior year in high school, I scored in the top 15 percent nationally in math on my SATs. During my two years at Howard University, I took Calculus, which was a little more challenging, but it sharpened my math skills to a greater extent.

In my adult years, as I gained experience in dealing with people from a personal and business standpoint, I helped family members and friends with their math problems as a courtesy. Over 3 years ago, I was assisting a co-worker, who was taking a math course at a nearby college, with some of her math problems. Upon helping her, she gave me a suggestion that I should tutor on a part-time basis. After doing the research, and reading a few books on how to become a tutor, my tutoring business was born.

My approach to tutoring is simple. First I offer a free 1-hour consultation to any potential clients. From there, I develop a game plan to get the student back on track with his or her good grades, and if the parent(s) agree to the terms, then I will use the sessions to help the student take a more positive approach to the math subject. During my tutoring sessions, I like to start off with the basic rules of the subject, assuring that the student can master them. As the student progresses, he or she will be able to ultimately handle tougher math applications, and that will help the student gain more confidence learning future applications.

Mathematics is a subject that I had a passion for as a child; as an adult, I can apply the same passion to help each and every student obtain a more positive attitude towards the subject, and to ultimately improve his or her grades.
