As a teacher with 22 years experience in both middle and high school classrooms, I bring wit, knowledge, and a supportive attitude to tutoring sessions. I am a Florida-state certified teacher with certification in math, science, special education, gifted, and psychology.
My day job is teaching high school level students and adults to pass all four sections of the GED. I am exceptionally skilled at doing so with one of the highest rates of students who pass the GED in my school district (the eighth largest school district in the US). In other words, hiring me to tutor you or your child to pass the GED is money well spent.
When I wake up in the morning, when I go to bed at night, and everything is between is about numbers. Math makes sense to me. My training as a middle and high school math teacher has taught me how to communicate that which comes to me naturally to those for whom math is a chore. My sense of humor and my delight in helping students makes me an excellent math teacher and tutor. My goal is to make math make sense to you.
Do you know what a comma splice is? Do you know why it is important not to end a sentence in a preposition? Do you know whether to use him and me or he and I? I do. That's why you should hire me... As a teacher with 22 years of experience helping students write better, I can make improving your essays painless.

The first lesson, I was a little nervous my son wouldn't like it, but when we left he said mom I Love it! Todd made it fun for him to learn so it wasn't just another hour of school for him. Our son is gifted and Todd has experience teaching gifted kids which is a definite bonus. He has a mid term and our son feels more confident taking his test than he would have before the lessons.
He makes math less complex and stressful. He has a great sense of humor and very comfortable with him. Great tutor!!!
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.
I have successfully taught 6th grade for eight years. I am certified in middle grades math 5-9, science 5-9, gifted K-12, and special education K-12. Additionally, I have successfully tutored students from 3rd grade through 8th grade for almost 20 years.
I teach GED completion for Hillsborough County Schools, and I have helped 22 students complete and earn their high school diploma over the past three years.
