About Darryl

Hi,

Thank you for considering me for your tutoring needs. Whether you are a parent searching for your child or a student looking to conquer a new subject, I believe that I am your person. I not only have the background, but I also have the system that will help you WIN.

Here's my approach:

1. Belief and Confidence. I am a fond believer that what holds most students back is their belief and confidence in their abilities. Confidence and belief can serve as the cap to our achievement. From day one, I focus on building confidence and belief in my students.
2. Learning Bent. We all learn in different ways; that's why I work to find my students learning bent. Discovering the correct learning style can save hours of wasted time doing things that don't work.
3. Patience and Challenge. Teaching and tutoring a new subject can be a tightrope to walk. It takes a balance of patience and encouragement while also challenging and pushing. When working with my students, I maintain this balance to bring out the best.
4. Relationship. I've found that students are more likely to buy into succeeding when they know that there are people in their corner. From day one I'll build a healthy relationship that creates trust.

My Qualifications:

I am a graduate of Michigan State University, Go Green! I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with a minor in computer science. I completed course work in Trigonometry, several Calculus courses, several statistics courses, and more math related subjects. I've tutored students from Winter Park High School, South Seminole Middle School and schools in my home town in Michigan with a combined background of 2 years. Also, I've mentored students from JA Academy (Oak Ridge H.S) and on a college level.

I facilitate goal setting and personal development related workshops at colleges and organizations. I've spoken to audiences across the U.S. In this work; I teach students how to achieve their goals and reach their maximum potential. In addition to this, I've taught personal and interpersonal skill development on a corporate level as a manager within a Fortune 250 company. I also teach on Sundays to the youth at my church ages 10-12. Combined teaching experience is over four years.

What's Most Important to Me:

I care! I care if my students succeed in the subjects they're challenged with and in the life that they live. I strongly believe that the subjects we conquer in school translate to the obstacles we conquer in life. Math or any other subject a student faces is an opportunity to arise to the occasion and win now and win in life later; that's why I care.

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.

Great first session!

Darryl worked with my sister on her college level algebra, and the feedback I received from both parties was positive, encouraging, and really great! I am looking forward to watching my sister gain the confidence in her math skills over time that I have faith will come from working with Darryl. Very happy to have a motivating and positive professional in her corner!
