About Darius

I am an English major at the University of Florida. Because of my experience as an English major, I am most adept in matters of reading comprehension, rhetoric/argumentation, and writing, especially the formats that appear on the SAT and ACT. I enjoy teaching and analyzing literature from all time periods, and concerning all topics (my specialization is in British literature).

While at UF I have taken, and excelled, in a number of math and science courses, including general biology, general chemistry, and differential calculus. I am also a proficient Spanish speaker. I am comfortable tutoring in any of the preceding subjects. I have worked with pupils ranging from three years old, to college-aged students, to develop their skills in a variety of areas.

My tutoring style tends to be student-directed. I am a firm believer that consistent, guided practice lends more to the learning process than lecturing alone. Positive reinforcement and encouraging words can go a long way in boosting a struggling student's morale.
