I love sharing my knowledge with others, be it one-on-one tutoring or facilitative study/ review sessions. Throughout out college and even after, I have been tutoring students in various subjects, and utilizing various learning strategies. In college, I tutored students in Mathematics and Physics. I actually held a job as Instructional Facilitator for Physics I & II, and was in this position for 1.5years. And even after college, I continued to tutor in Mathematics, as well as standardized examinations such as the GED, GRE, SAT, and ASVAB.
In college, I studied Economics and minored in Chemistry, which exposed me to both social and applied sciences. I graduated top 10% of my class with Cum Laude Honors. I chose a diverse undergraduate study because of my secondary interest in Sciences. I graduated Honors as well, as evidenced by the Science GPA of 3.51. Being exposed to two different fields of study allowed me to obtain a great amount of knowledge. In Economics, I learned different economic theories both on micro and macro levels. The economic theories helped develop strong critical thinking abilities which I apply in my daily activities and work such as spending, money management, marginal benefits, and so on. On the other hand, my exposure to science allowed me explore the field hands-on. Upon graduation, I worked in a biomedical facility as a research assistant, to develop anti-sickling agents for the treatment of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). This research experience was very gratifying because it gave me hands-on experience which many people may never be able to experience.
Prior to graduation, I decided to explore the social science field more, hence my Masters in Public Administration. I enjoyed the exposure I gained on public policy analyses, government and private sector operations, and agency/ inter-agency management. After all of these education I have gained, I want to be able to teach others in areas that I find very impactful such as critical thinking and problem-solving. Among all these three areas of study, critical thinking and problem-solving are two underlying skills that I have gained and developed over time. And of course, my exposure in all of these fields makes me competent to teach generalized subjects and varied topics of interest.
I graduated with a 3.73 GPA from Virginia Tech. After graduation, I undertook an audit course to help me more marketable. I accepted an offer to work for a Big 4 bank where my main function is quality assurance. My critical thinking skills and problem solving abilities has helped me overcome challenges in this new position. I see myself as a very dedicated intelligent individual, and it is my goal to impart many student with the skills of critical thinking and problem-solving.
Many schools today have changed their curriculum which no longer accommodates critical thinking subjects, not to mention the ability to identify problems and solve them intelligently. Notwithstanding, there are evidence that many students nowadays are not well-equipped with quantitative analytical skills which would set them apart from their counterparts in other countries or regions of the country, therefore creating an educational gap. As such, I find it very imperative that critical thinking and problem-solving skills should be integrated in students’ education today, whether it is re-introduced in the curriculum or obtained through tutoring/ mentoring opportunities.
I have highlighted some key points below that has built up my core competencies. I would love to bridge this educational gap and make a difference in the lives of many student. Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me for your tutoring needs at any time. I would love the opportunity to tutor anyone and I look forward to reaching your tutoring needs.

I like to tutor in small groups. I have successfully utilized online tools such as Skype to hold tutoring and facilitative sessions. I like to utilize visual cues and apply concepts practically.

Prince is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and patient. My son expressed how nervous he was upon first meeting but Prince made learning and understanding algebra easier and less stressful. I would definitely recommend Prince.
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.
I have multiple years of tutoring high school algebra.
I have multiple years of experience using Excel at an intermediate to advanced level.
