As a private tutor for the past 20 years, I have helped countless private, public, home school, and college students make outstanding progress! I've tutored students in elementary school through college, and beyond! Most recently, I've begun working at North Georgia Technical College working with upper level math, English, and pharmacology students. Helping students succeed is what I love to do, and I believe each and every student can be successful!

Students truly enjoy working with me, as I am able to help each understand, sometimes for the first time math and science: My specialty is math: elementary and middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra I and II, geometry, pre-calculus, trigonometry, math for college readiness, statistics, intermediate and college algebra, college pre-calculus, college trigonometry, and college statistics. Another true specialty area for me is the TEAS. With my Masters Degree in Sports Medicine and a minor in Emergency Medicine, it's a perfect fit with my TEAS students who need a strong math and science background. My degree in Sports Medicine also allows me to teach human science courses like anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, biology, first aid & CPR, EMT coursework, and the care and prevention of athletic injuries. In addition, I have helped countless students prepare for an alphabet of standardized tests which include: ACT, ASVAB, CJBAT, CLAST, CPT, FCAT, GED, GRE, ISEE, NET, PERT, SAT, HESI, and the new TEAS VI test.

My students often comment I am patient, encouraging, and able to explain the same things their teacher does in a way they finally understand. I strive to discover how each student learns best! This allows me to tailor each lesson to the specific needs of every student. I have tutored gifted students, regular education students who need study skills, test prep and homework help, college students and students with learning challenges.

If you or your student are struggling, I would be glad to complete a skills assessment to identify areas of challenge. When a student struggles, he or she may have underlying skills which need review. It's helpful to identify how students learn best because not all students learn in the same way. One-on-one tutoring is a great resource for students who want to move ahead, work at their own pace, or fill in the gaps. Proven experience truly counts and I will help to make a real difference for you or your student!

Thank you for reading my profile. I am always glad to answer any questions you may have and I hope to hear from you soon!

TEAS,

TEAS

As an professional tutor for the last 18 years, I have worked with students across the spectrum in a variety of test prep areas, including the TEAS. My Master's degree in Sports Medicine along with my experience as an Emergency Medical Technician allows me to provide much more detailed insight into the specific types of questions on the test. In my experience, I have found some test prep materials offered for the TEAS do not adequately prepare the test taker for the exam. Often, the test prep materials are watered down to the point of creating a false sense of security about the test taker's skill level. In having worked with many TEAS students, my medical background combined with my educational experience and certification has allowed me to identify the components needed for successful test taking. These include a reasonable time frame for improving skills, individualized instruction and periodic skill assessment and review. The TEAS test is used as a tool to measure a prospective nursing student’s skills. The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is useful in predicting an individual’s chances of success in nursing school and identifies which applicants may need additional practice and review before entering a program. The test is scored in four areas, English, math, language and science, and contains 13 sub content areas. The test has a total of 170 questions and uses an objective format. There is a math portion of the TEAS and calculators cannot be used. Once the test is administered, results are usually available within 48 hours. Practice test are available to prospective students. In addition, there are study materials/manuals for extra review.

Increased ASVAB Preteset Score 16 points

After 3 tutor sessions with Jack and completing home work assignments I took the Asvab Pre Test for my second time and my score was a 58 compared to the prior score of 42. Jack uses simple terms and breaks down the math process so that it is easy to comprehend. I am so glad Jack was willing and available to tutor me. Now, I look forward to having many options to choose from for my military career. Thank you Jack!

Great Tutor for the TEAS Test!!

Jack was very eager to help me get a higher score on my TEAS Test. He was very patient and had many different ways to help me study for this test. Overall, I improved my science score from a 50% to a 70.8% with the tutoring from Jack. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help regarding these subjects! Thanks again!

Tutor responded:

Congratulations Michael! Your hard work was the difference. Thank you for the kind comments.

Outstanding Tutor!!

I just had my first session with Jack in preparation for the TEAS. He is very friendly and easy to learn from! We went over topics that I have struggled on in the past and he gave me new efficient strategies/approaches to the test questions. He listened to what I wanted to get out of our tutor session and made use of the hour accordingly. I loved that he not only helped me during the tutor session but also sent me home with reading materials, worksheets, and flashcards to review on my own. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding and knowledgeable tutor.

Excellent Science Tutor

Jack is an excellent science tutor. His methodology is simple and tailored to the understanding of his student. He keeps his teaching simple and direct to the important facts that the student will need to do well in the subject. As a result, he guided and tutored my son, a 7th grader, from a B grade to an A grade in physical science. Jack, please keep up the great job.
