## Amazing. You will never be disappointed with this man!

Mary, 16 lessons with RodneyMy daughter has been struggling in algebra. We just moved to Louisiana and the math system here was giving us a headache as well as bad grades for my child. After two sessions, my daughter is excited about math again, learning so much and excited to attend tutoring sessions! We live in Mandeville and went through several tutors. This man is so awesome, it is worth the hour round trip drive!

I think I have a unique qualifications to reach and tutor students that need help. I have a lifetime of experience in science, math, and social studies working as an economist, operations research analyst and as a researcher in the U.S. D.A. Forest Service before retiring a few years ago. I tutored neighbor kids part time for several years prior to retiring and found I really enjoyed helping out. I have decided to dedicate the next part of my life to help guide and direct students drawing...

Business,
#### Business

I'm very qualified to tutor business subjects. My economics training and work experience, combined with my accounting background give me a solid basis to tutor business. I've also worked for several years as an Operations Research Analyst/Economist during which I was responsible for building quantitative business models and presenting results to decision makers.

Financial Accounting,
#### Financial Accounting

I've had several financial and managerial accounting students recently and I enjoy tutoring these subjects. I majored in accounting at one time before I switched to economics (forestry economics) as a major. The concepts are basic, and the execution is logical.
Also 6-7 years ago, I passed the IRS's Enrolled Agent exam, which qualified me to argue tax cases in front of the IRS, so I'm familiar with tax law.
If you need my expertise, please contact me.

My PhD is in Forestry Economics and I am a retired Research Economist from the USDA Forest Service. I really enjoy tutoring econ students and I've helped graduate students from LSU and SELA.

Tax Accounting,
#### Tax Accounting

I've professionally prepared taxes for at least 10 years. I became an Enrolled Agent, the highest tax preparation qualification the IRS recognizes below a tax lawyer or Tax CPA. I've dropped that designation since I'm focusing in on tutoring rather than tax preparation as a retirement career choice.

Statistics,
#### Statistics

Statistics is a great subject. I have a great background to help you with statistics. I've taken quite a few statistics classes on my way to my doctorate and I worked in science as a research forester for the US Forest Service. I can provide help in computation and well as theory and planning a study. I have a number of reference books from basic statistics to linear regression, and beyond.

Elementary (K-6th),
#### Elementary (K-6th)

I enjoy tutoring elementary kids, especially in math and science. I think it's very important that the kids get a solid framework in mathematics at this level so that they can go on the junior high and high school math. I believe in a solid foundation of math facts, and to drill techniques. I also think that science, at this age, should inspire. I've worked with home schooled elementary students for the past 5 years, I love to do experiments that amaze, teach the scientific method, and help the student get excited about science.

Study Skills,
#### Study Skills

As a student, I developed a highly successful set of study skills that saw me through 4 college degrees, certification as an Enrolled Agent and helped me in my work life my entire career. I've been expanding my list of techniques during the 10 years I've been tutoring professionally, to accommodate the students I work with. I enjoy working with the kids, watching them like a hawk, then diagnosing them with tricks and techniques to improve their grades.

ACT English,
#### ACT English

The ACT English test is primarily a time management test. I help the student practice clock management, review grammar rules as needed, teach them to use context clues for vocabulary, and know which questions to guess at until the easier questions are all answered.

ACT Reading,

Social Studies,
#### Social Studies

I have a PhD in forest economics and a Master of Social Science (a combination of political science, economics, and sociology. I've also had a keen interest in history, taking numerous college classes and reading extensively. My work as a planner/researcher/operations research analyst/economist exposed me to many of the tools used in social studies research and gave me a good understanding of the topic.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Algebra is the basic tool kit of all math classes your students will take in high school and beyond. It's also very important on the ACT Math test, a gateway to get into college. When I tutor more advanced subjects, I find that many students have problems with Algebra...which causes problems in Geometry, Algebra II (of course), and in Advanced Math, and Calculus. Knowing Algebra well is very important. I like to teach good techniques, memory aids, and alternatives to solve problems. I'd like to help your student.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra II is a fun subject to tutor. It contains just enough complexities to remain fresh and interesting. Algebra is the DNA of all math and sciences. A clear understanding of Algebra will help any college bound student or the student attempting to just get through high school.

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I enjoy tutoring High School Chemistry. I find that mathematics is at the base of 90% of the problems the students I tutor have with Chemistry. Chemistry is very logically laid out and once you understand the basic processes, the students can understand what to do. The remaining 10% of high school chemistry consists of memory items, which the students can learn, if they are encouraged to do so. It's fun to tutor chemistry.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra is a critical math topic. I've encountered many students that didn't do well here and math troubles followed them all the way through school. If your student doesn't understand pre-Algebra, they have a very weak basis for going on to the next subjects. I find the easiest way to increase ACT math scores is to review pre-Algebra topics.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

Pre-calculus is really a combination of Trigonometry and Algebra III. It goes over several concepts that are highly useful and necessary if you are to advance to Calculus in either high school or college. If you know your algebra and trig., you will do fine in Calculus. My task as a tutor is for you to understand those concepts and explain them so that you can do well.

Trigonometry,
#### Trigonometry

Trig is normally taught as a part of an Advanced Math or Pre-calculus class in high school. It's a vital and interesting topic and it's fun to tutor. I find that many of the concepts and problems in trig are fairly simple algebra problems embedded into the trig problems. It looks difficult, with with a little time, patience and guidance, you can make it through. I'd be happy to help.

Rodney has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **19 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## great teacher, very patient!!

He really helps me, and I leave feeling accomplished with what I was trying to learn. He’s so nice. I am glad he’s my tutor!

Kimberly, 16 lessons with Rodney

## Offers student ease & comfort

My son is preparing for a unit test. Dr Rodney reviewed several lessons with him. I am not a participant within their sessions but appreciate my son's ease & comfort to talk about his Math. I think the session is building his confidence. I am most appreciative of the notes Dr. Rodney leaves (on the site) to better understand how the session time was spent but most importantly how my son is progressing.

Estella, 19 lessons with Rodney

## great tutor

he was able to break down the confusing parts of the lesson to terms I was able to understand and to read the question for all the words because it will tell you what it is looking for and not make the terminology so confusing

Bryan, 1 lesson with Rodney

## Very helpful

Dr. B. was very understanding and informative. I learned so much in only one hour. Highly recommend for any ACT or SAT help.

Katlynd , 4 lessons with Rodney

## great teacher

Me Rodney was patient and my son felt comfortable asking questions. Will definitely be scheduling future tutoring sessions. Thanks Mr Rodney!

Kelly, 11 lessons with Rodney

## Helpful and knowledgeable tutor

Dr. B. has been extremely helpful with my daughter’s Algebra 2 homework and tests. She’s never had a good math teacher since elementary school. Dr. B. is patient and willing to explain the concepts behind the equations and formulas.

Rhonda, 4 lessons with Rodney

## Paitent and well prepared with Stats

Rodney was excellent; well prepared, knowledgeable and patient. He was early and ready to go, only wish I had contacted him a few weeks ago before I got behind. Thx!

Taylor, 2 lessons with Rodney

## Very helpful

Rodney is very helpful and has a lot of knowledge with tutoring. He goes out of his way to help. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help with Algebra 3. He makes himself available and very reliable.

Tiffany, 14 lessons with Rodney

## Professional and Friendly Tutor

Rodney was great! I was enrolled in a finance class that was giving me a lot of trouble. He showed up on time to the session, he was very well prepared, and he had a solid lesson planned for that hour. He printed out the power points that I gave him from the class lecture and went through the problems step by step. He asked me questions to make sure that I understood. If I didn't understand he was very patient and went back to review. He is also great with time management and it is easy to schedule a tutoring session with him. Nice guy, and great tutor, I strongly recommend him.
