University of Georgia (Economics)
Dartmouth College (MBA)
I am a recently accepted student at the top-ten ranked business school the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth pursuing my MBA with a full scholarship. Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I struggled in math in elementary, middle and high school. As a result, I decided not to go to college immediately after high school and chose to go to the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) in Orlando, Florida. After graduating from MMI, I moved to Atlanta to work in the motorcycle industry. Unfortunately, I moved here right before the recession (2007) and lost my job about a month after moving here. After spending months trying to find a job, I decided to go back to school and earn a Bachelor's degree.
After starting at a community college, I realized how behind I was in math. I had to take remedial classes to get up to college proficiency in math. Taking these classes, however, was a great experience because it forced me to learn the basics of math. Then, when I transferred to the University of Georgia (UGA), I took pre-calculus and earned an A in the class. This boosted my confidence and encouraged me to take more math classes. Although I was a business major in college, I ended up taking Calculus I, II and III, Sequences and Series, Linear Algebra and Mathematical Statistics - excelling in all of them.
During my journey to acquire advanced knowledge in math, I also tutored for UGA's athletic department. There, I tutored student-athletes in math and economics. Throughout my 5 years of tutoring I have learned how to take complicated ideas and explain them in easy to understand ways. Because I started in remedial math classes and finished at the collegiate level, I have a deep knowledge of math. This allows me to answer most math questions and explain difficult concepts. I also know the best and most efficient ways to acquire this knowledge.
I start my initial tutoring sessions by connecting with the student and getting to know him or her. This makes the student more likely to look forward to our sessions together. This also makes the tutoring sessions more enjoyable as I know math can be boring to most people. Because I enjoy music, movies, sports, fitness, cars, etc., I am usually able to connect with my students in some way.
Each student is different, so I customize my tutoring methods based on the student's needs. Typically, however, I like to see what the student's problem area is by asking him or her questions about what they find most difficult. Then we will start to focus on these problem areas to build the students confidence. After these problems areas are addressed, I like to either help the student with class assignments or help the student learn new concepts so that he or she can get ahead of the class. This tends to boost the students confidence because he or she knows the material before the teacher teaches it and this encourages class participation - followed by better grades on exams. This method has worked every time. I look forward to meeting you!

On time, pleasant and knowledgeable. He has a good style with his approach. Helped my daughter and I would use him again.
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.
