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. I am currently looking for the opportunity to continue teaching while being a stay-at-home dad.

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.
Troy arrived on time (actually a little early which was perfect) and my son was immediately comfortable with him. It was obvious Troy knew exactly what my son needed. His demeanor was professional yet friendly and we look forward to more sessions with Troy.
Was very nice - connected with my son right away. He explained things in a way that my son really understood, and left him feeling much better about the subject than he had in a long time. We will use again!
Update: My son has worked with Troy 3 times now, and we are very happy with the lessons. Troy is able to keep him on track, even when my son tries to sidetrack Troy! My son also feels confident with the things he is learning, and I think that is half the battle.
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.
