About Troy

I am currently looking for the opportunity to continue teaching while being a stay-at-home dad. I am looking forward to tutoring individuals or groups in the subjects I love. I have tutored many students in the past and have found it to be very rewarding and educational.

While in high school, I enjoyed math and science and decided to pursue a career in engineering. I attended Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and received my BS in Mechanical Engineering along with a minor in economics. After working in the engineering field for about 6 months, I realized that I needed more exposure to the math and science I enjoyed so much as a student. After this, I decided to pursue a job in teaching and received my MA in secondary education and certification in middle/high school math from Ball State University.

I am looking forward to helping students ranging from middle school to college. I am certified to teach all middle school and high school math subjects and am experienced in tutoring college students. I am prepared to help students with homework, study for tests, and prepare my own lessons if requested.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

The Very Best! — My child has used several other tutors before, and we have found Troy to be the best of all. He is professional, courteous, on time, down to earth and easy to talk to as well as respectful. Most important, he teaches in a way that is succinct that enables my child to grasp the lessons quickly. We are very fortunate and we recommend him most highly. ...
