About Grant

I am a professional tutor with two years experience at a tutoring center in Suntree. During this time I have taught a large variety of subjects and students- giving me a large pool of experience in this field. I have the ability to teach several subjects, but I specialize in high school and undergraduate mathematics which includes: Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.

I also have a degree in History from the University of Central Florida so I am able to easily assist students with history/social studies coursework. In addition, due to the massive amount of essay writing required for a history degree, I have no problem assisting students with a writing assignment.

My teaching method alternates between stern and casual - depending on the needs of the student. Normally I am very easy going. I try to make my tutoring sessions not only educational but also enjoyable. However, I can freely switch to a more authoritarian stance if the student needs a taskmaster to keep them working and learning. In regards to the coursework, I focus on students understanding the underlying concepts behind the material. In my experience, explaining WHY this problem works this way, not just HOW to solve it, increases the likelihood of students understanding/retaining the information presented to them. As opposed to just blindly memorizing the material only to forget it all shortly thereafter. This method promotes a greater understanding of the subject which not only helps them on their next test but can continue to help them throughout their school career.

Engaging my son

First session was positive. My son felt he understood Grant well in his explanations of the material and found him easy to talk to. We plan to continue tutoring on a weekly basis.
