I have lived in Atlanta since I was 5 years old and am a product of the Atlanta public school system. I began helping my siblings and classmates with their homework while in the 2nd grade and began being used by teachers to help my classmates during school instructional periods while in the fourth grade. I continued to assist classmates during my High School and College years (I have a BA from Davidson College in North Carolina) and have always gotten a great deal of personal satisfaction from knowing that I was able to help someone.
I have worked with youth in some capacity for all of my adult life. I have served as a volunteer football coach every year since 1995 and have been a part of 10 championship teams. Professionally, I worked as a Fulton County Juvenile Probation Officer for 12 years (1991 - 2003), and I have been a part-time volunteer math teacher asst at Harper Archer Middle school for the last 2 years and plan to continue and expand that relationship this school year. I currently attend Western Governors University where I am working towards my 2nd BA ( Mathematics Education grades 6 - 12 ) as I finally pursue my first love, Teaching. I have enjoyed many success in my life, but I have found that that for me, there is nothing quite like the expression on a learners face when they finally "get it". PRICELESS!!!

Math can always be broken down into the basic functions of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and these when confined to 2 figures can be done rather easily. My specialty areas include everything from grade 1 through High school geometry, Algebra and statistics. Earned my spurs helping students prepare for the now defunct High School Graduation test.
Good Writing comes naturally as a person learns to trust their own thoughts. I can teach you to do this, and it want take that long.
Helping others is what gives my life meaning. If you are serious about your learning, then I would love to be your guide.

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.
