Spelman College & Georgia Institute of Technology (Mathematics)
Hey There! My name is DeShawn, I am originally from Los Angeles, California, and I am currently an undergraduate student at the Georgia Institute of Technology pursuing my second bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering. Second Bachelors you say... tell me more? Well, I started my college career at Spelman College studying Mathematics and joined their Dual Degree Engineering program, where I transferred to a technical school, after 3 years and had completed the mathematics degree requirements, to pursue engineering. When I am finished at Georgia Tech I will be receiving a degree from both universities. I know... complicated explanation, but it will all be worth it!
So now some history. While I attended Spelman College I worked in their student Math Laboratory for 3 years tutoring in a range of subjects from college algebra to calculus to differential equations. I was selected my sophomore year at Spelman, as apart of their ASPIRE Peer Facilitated Learning (APFL) program, to be the student tutor for the Calculus 2 courses. On top of tutoring students on campus, I also tutored at Wings of Knowledge tutoring center in Decatur, GA, in elementary math and high school Math 2. Since attending Georgia Tech, I no longer do on-campus tutoring, but have continued to tutor private clients to help them excel in mathematics. I LOVE math, would love to pass on my passion to your students, so they can continue to succeed in STEM, and share the passion with me.
What makes me an outstanding tutor is my love for the subject. I truly enjoy doing math, and it makes me excited when I solve the given problems. Being tutor allows me to share my passion, and get my students just as excited about the subject as I am. A lot of times students become defeated when they struggle with math and it makes them frustrated, but if they have a teacher who can help them get past that initial frustration and continue to push through, it encourages them to want to learn more, and that is what I am here to help them do.
If you think I would be a mach for you or your student, please do not hesitate to reach out and send me a message. I can't wait to meet you all!! Hey There!

DeShawn is doing a great job keeping my daughter engaged and math. She is building her confidence and breaking through to her. Highly recommend.
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 previously tutored high school and middle school students in Algebra and pre algebra helping with their success in school.
I have tutored high school and college students in Algebra 2 for 3 years, helping students gain confidence and improve their grades.
I have tutored in elementary school mathematics at the Wings of Knowledge tutoring center. I also frequently tutor my 3rd and 4th grade level nieces in their math subjects, so I am familiar with the common core math curriculum.
I tutored high school and college level Precalculus for 4 years.
I have taken classes where I had to know and completely understand the application of trigonometric identities and properties in other mathematics and engineering courses.
