Former Soldier and Indiana University graduate. I am a certified English tutor and I also speak French and German. I spent a number of years living and working abroad and I have experience with a wide variety of Language and Cultural backgrounds. I have lived in Germany, Italy, England, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Panama to name a few. In addition, I have visited many other countries over the years.

I have a BA in Communications from Indiana University. I received my certification (CELTA) to teach ESL through the International House in London, England where I also spent some time teaching.

I have an easygoing personality and a strong familiarity with many cultures. This helps me to have a deeper understanding of the specific problems a student may encounter with their English that is unique to their native language.

In addition to ESL, TESOL, and English background, I was in the military for 8 years and can help potential new recruits prepare for the ASVAB and military service. I am also able to help people prepare for other tests like GED and SAT. In addition to the subject matter, I like to prepare people mentally for taking a test. This involves helping people determine the best way to approach a specific test to achieve the best results possible.

I am enthusiastic, knowledgeable, patient, and culturally sensitive, and I would be a great choice to assist with your ESL/English or your test preparation needs.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I am a Desert Storm era veteran who served 8 years of honorable service both in the USA and abroad. I also served in several specialty positions such as Training NCO, NBC NCO, Equal Opportunity Rep and earned a Master Fitness patch. My scores on the ASVAB were very solid (AFQT was 95) and I have also taken the Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB). I was also a PLDC and BNCOC graduate during my active service. I am able to help potential new soldiers prepare for both the ASVAB for entry into the military as well as other tests they may have and during their term of enlistment. I am also able to give inside tips and sound advice on how to make the most of your military service.

Great tutor

Devin is a great tutor. He has helped me with with every part of the ASVAB testing. He was a perfect fit with his military background.

Jonah, 5 lessons with Devin

Great

Devin is a great tutor with great flexibility. We talked about my ASVAB experience, and he learned that I already have a solid AFQT score (which he wasn't used to). However he got an assessment of where I needed work and focused on those areas during our sessions. He was able to thoroughly explain each definition and/or problem. We learned that a little review would help me increase my score.

Mission Accomplished

Devin was hired because my niece had taken the ASVAB once but really wanted to improve her scores which would allow her a higher level of job placement. They met 3 times and 2 weeks later she retook the test and improved her score by 20 points! It was exactly wanted we needed. Devin was very friendly, polite, and professional. I was pleased with how fast he responded to my requests. I contacted him on a Wednesday and they met on Monday! Ours thanks to Devin for helping her to reach her goal. Devin really helped me improve my score. Without him I wouldn't have had the motivation to continue studying even after our sessions. I took the test and passed it and now I am enlisted in the United States Navy! Devin is a great tutor and is very helpful when it comes to learning about anything and everything. He is very nice and very smart which is something to look for in a tutor. Thanks to Devin for helping me achieve my goal!
