Bio

My name is Dominic, and I’m excited for the opportunity to work with you! I graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication (focusing primarily on Political Communication) and minor in Theatre Arts. The professors I had throughout my higher education constantly drilled us on grammar rules; how to write with the audience in mind; and how to “cut the fluff” and submit writing that is topical, personable, and precise.

My name is Dominic, and I’m excited for the opportunity to work with you! I graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication (focusing primarily on Political Communication) and minor in Theatre Arts. The professors I had throughout my higher education constantly drilled us on grammar rules; how to write with the audience in mind; and how to “cut the fluff” and submit writing that is topical, personable, and precise. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and with that came a passion for editing and honing students’ creative and journalistic writing skills. While at LSU, I worked in the student athletes’ tutoring center, and helped several students (running the gamut from golfers to football players) boost their grades in Media Writing alongside several other ELA-focused classes.

After I graduated, I decided to go into education, mainly with the intent of teaching Civics and Public Speaking; however, I was offered a position as a high school math teacher, and five years later, I wouldn’t trade my job for the world. I went on to receive my certification in Secondary Math Education from the University of Holy Cross in New Orleans in 2018, and I received my Louisiana Level 1 Teacher’s License shortly thereafter.

Teaching a classroom full of students has its fair share of issues, I honestly look forward to tutoring sessions because working with students 1-on-1 or in small groups makes for a more focused environment. When I tutor, I like to make sure each session has some sort of objective. Getting students to reach a goal is a lot easier when you’re able to see in real time exactly where their problem areas arise. Starting off with a student, I try to focus more on the work they’re given, just to see what their strengths and weaknesses may be with grade level content. This allows me, in future sessions to pull in remedial content to help them better develop their comprehension of concepts they may not have understood in previous grade levels. The beauty of education is
