About George

I currently teach 8th grade Pre-Algebra. I excel at finding ways to help students understand there is more than one way to solve a math problem. Sometimes, all it takes is for a student to look at a problem from the other side for her to figure out a solution.

Using my background in electrical engineering, I also motivate my students by helping them to understand how mathematics plays a role in the real world and everyday life. Plenty of students see math as an obstacle instead of its true identity, the key to unlocking their futures.

"Following proper steps always leads to proper outcomes when the simple math is performed correctly."

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Algebra has always been my favorite subject. I have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, meaning I've taken all the maths. I enjoy helping students understand the concept of algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra is my favorite subject. I have plenty of experience helping family and friends to grasp this subject.

Basketball

I have been involved in basketball since before I was born. I was in my mother's belly attending my father's games at Georgia Tech. I would like to think basketball is in my blood. I'm not too bad it myself. Along the way I have developed the ability to analyze every aspect of the game of basketball.
I began playing organized AAU basketball when I was about 7 or 8. I was kind of recruited by Cocoa High's current varsity basketball coach. He and my father played high school ball together at CHS. I ended up playing for the same coach my sophomore year at CHS, which was his first hear as a high school coach. I started varsity as point guard from that year until my senior year.
That was about 12 years ago. Now, I am an 29 year old man with lots of basketball knowledge and still a bit of gas in the old tank. I haven't met a high school player yet that I can't handle 1-on-1. If you're trying to improve you're basketball skills, no matter what area, I can help. You can usually find me on the front row of a CHS basketball game yelling and screaming for my tigers. Come see for yourself!

College Counseling

I am a 29 year old degreed electrical engineer who just happened to be fairly smart and exceptionally blessed to make it to and through college without any type of plan or forewarning about anything. Needless to say, I learned about a lot of things the hard way. All I knew is I wasn't going to the army like my mom was going to make me if I didn't. But that was no problem because I always knew college was next. Just didn't know what was going to happen, what to expect, or even what I wanted to be.
I'm sure I probably managed to avoid some of the booby traps college has to offer but I doubt that your that unlucky to find something that I haven't. Even if you do, I'm here to help. I can help with anything.
