About Darius

Hello!

If you're looking for high-velocity results--at a pace that suits your needs, you've come to the right place.

My expertise is in helping with reading, writing, arithmetic, public speaking, health, and English as a second language. I also specialize in assisting those with learning disabilities.

Just to be clear, I am not your typical tutor. Over twenty years ago, when I was in grade school, I reached a point where I had nearly straight F's; and eventually dropped out of high school. Over the following two decades, I learned a number of accelerated learning techniques, transformed my mind, and developed a passion for education. Since then, I've had straight A's in nearly all of my college courses. Once I made the change, there was no going back. Today, I have a passion for teaching others to achieve the same results!

As your tutor, I will coach you (or your child) in a way that goes well beyond what is offered from most conventional teachers. This is after all how a tutor should be--not just more of what you find in the average class room.

You see, most teachers present their subject matter only one way--their way. Yet, this one-size-fits-all approach fails to accommodate the unique learning perspectives of each individual. By contrast, once I've identified a specific learning style, I adapt my teachings to fit the strengths of the student.

If you or your child have been struggling with assignments, and need help from someone who's been there; or if you want to work with a tutor who understands, I can help. Most importantly, if you or your child would like to feel proud to bring home the A's; and are ready to be a High-Velocity Student, it's time for you to shine!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bodybuilding

I have been an athlete my entire life; and have devoted myself to studying all aspects of fitness, including endurance training, parkour, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, Crossfit, and bodybuilding. Not only have I taught others how to transform themselves, I have personal experience transforming my own body; and have lost about 40 lb. In addition, I have 13 years of experience as a coach and personal trainer; and have been certified since 2007.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have always been a patient and supportive teacher and coach; and enjoy helping children reach their potential. Since there was a time when I was a child who struggled with school, I empathize with those who are experiencing similar difficulties. I eventually learned how to be successful with school; and developed a passion for education. I now routinely receive A's with every college course I take; and enjoy helping children to do the same.

Fitness

I have 13 years of experience as a coach and personal trainer; and have been certified since 2007. In addition, I have 12 years of military experience as a Navy Corpsman (emergency medic). During my service, I was attached to the U.S. Marines for 5 years; and 3 years with a Navy SEAL training command. During this time, I was able to undergo training programs that helped to enhance what I've learned as a personal trainer. My certifications: ACE personal trainer; USAW Sport Performance Coach; and NSCA Tactical Strength & Conditioning Facilitator.

Nutrition

I am currently pursuing my B.S. in nutrition science, and have been receiving As with every class. More importantly, I have devoted over 20 years to researching this field, as it has served to enhance my knowledge base as a personal trainer. In addition, while I served as a medic in the military, I was required to give a number of classes to hundreds of military and civilian personnel. Many of these classes were on diet and nutrition.
