About Garrett

My name is Garrett and I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Stetson University. I pursued a broad range of study, having majored in Humanities and minored in Business and French. I also studied classical violin at the Stetson University School of Music. After receiving my BA, I volunteered with City Year, Inc., an internationally recognized 501c3 non-profit. I served as a corps member for City Year Miami in North Miami High School where I mentored students and supplemented the classroom experience through further Algebra/English (Language Arts) tutoring before, during, and after school. Also, I am a certified yoga instructor (through Yoga Alliance) and I have been certified through the American Red Cross as a water safety instructor with several years experience teaching individuals of all ages water safety skills and swim strokes to students with little to no experience. I have been certified in CPR/First-Aid for over 12 years.

I love to learn and I very much enjoy mentoring and encouraging students to find their unique passion in academic and personal development endeavors. I am very skilled in discerning patterns between differing subject matters and strive to present material in a logical and easy-to-understand manner. I believe that true success is realized when the student finds a way to not only enjoy the learning process but to somehow relate that experience personally so as to solidify new material. I encourage students to find ways to enhance retention of course material through multi-sensory stimulation via reading, writing, and hearing the course material. By engaging multiple areas of the brain, memory retention is enhanced exponentially.

I was an Algebra and general math tutor with City Year Miami and I received high marks in these subjects while in school.

I have an affinity toward understanding the human condition and I find psychology extremely fascinating. What I am unsure of, I am skilled in research and analysis in order to understand how best to support a student.

I received a minor in French from Stetson University and I have been studying the language since I was 12 years old.

My major was a writing intensive program requiring me to write academic theses of extensive length for which I made at least a B, but on most I received an A.

I am committed to helping you improve their grades as well as improve their academic confidence. I have many academic resources at my disposal and I am very motivated to mentor you in a way that will allow them to become considerably more proficient in your endeavors. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience so we may discuss how I may best support your academic success!
