About Roger


Bio

I enjoy teaching and working with children. While I believe that all children can learn, they do so in their own ways and at their own pace. It is the tutor’s responsibility to ensure that the student(s) understand the material. It is important to show students how one idea builds on the last. I will help your child learn the material in his/her own way. I consider myself to be patient, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable of the subject matter. I truly believe all children can meet their...

I enjoy teaching and working with children. While I believe that all children can learn, they do so in their own ways and at their own pace. It is the tutor’s responsibility to ensure that the student(s) understand the material. It is important to show students how one idea builds on the last. I will help your child learn the material in his/her own way. I consider myself to be patient, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable of the subject matter. I truly believe all children can meet their potential if they are given the appropriate surroundings and learning experiences. I am very proud of the kind letters of thanks that I have received from parents of some of my students this year.

As an engineer and I have taught planners and engineers how to use software to do calculations. I teach GRE preparation for Kaplan (analytical and verbal reasoning) both to small classes of 3 to 7 students and individual tutoring. In 2009, I was accepted into the Educators of Change program by the Duval County School Board. I am now a certified teacher in Mathematics and Physics (grades 9-12). I have a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and a master’s in Public Administration. In addition, I have learned extensive grammatical skills through writing articles for publication and many professional reports. In addition to my engineering and teaching work, my volunteer activities include being a Big brother and a Guardian ad Litem.

Excellent Tutor

Roger was very patient, accessible, and of course extremely proficient in math - it was obvious it is something he genuinely likes to do! He tried to individualize his teaching style and teach in terms I would personally understand. Roger provided me with a multitude of extra lessons (outside of my own study materials) in areas needing additional work. Roger is an excellent tutor, with experience in teaching all math, but especially in helping students and professionals prepare for the GRE.

Good tutor

Roger met me for a couple of sessions to prep me for the GRE. He knows his stuff and put in effort to bring me materials that were pertinent to my weakness areas. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.

What a Wonderful Find

Roger did an amazing job helping my son get through a tough year in math when he elected to take both AP Statistics and AP Calculus in one year. He worked hard and with Roger's help was able to get 5's on both exams. In addition, Roger has been helping him study for his SAT exams and my son believes it has been a tremendous advantage. Roger is a wonderful teacher and my son really enjoys the time he spends with him.

The Best!!!!

Mr. S tutored my daughter in math for the ACT test. He researched the test, assigned on-target homework tailored to her needs, and gave helpful feedback to her during his tutoring sessions. His patience, kind manner, and cheerfulness made him an excellent tutor for my math-challenged teen.
