About Kirk

Hello and Good Day!
My name is Kirk and I am here to help you reach your goals!
Whether you want an excellent grade on a test or assignment, want to improve in a subject, or want to gain a specific skill, you can do it! And you don't have to be bored to death while you do. With my help, you can achieve your goals with engaging and relevant instruction that won't burn you out after a few minutes.
Seeking expert assistance is a wise choice, so keep up the good work and choose the best help available! I excel in many subjects and have a history of producing success. I have educated at all levels from elementary and early child development to collegiate level tutelage to corporate training and education at Fortune 500 companies. If you desire, I can even provide you with references for testimonials on the accuracy of my statements.
So quit worrying and let's get started!

Before making the choice, this year, to attend graduate school for my MBA in International Business, I worked for a the leading athletic footwear company in the world for nearly a decade. There, I was in charge of training at multiple locations, after winning employee of the year while I was in college. I gained the skills to train and teach using varying methods to ensure retention while instructing hundreds of employees. While working for this industry leader, I was promoted ten times in seven years, but my greatest achievement was getting those promotions for others. I am an advocate for giving success away and so the nearly twenty employees that I was able to develop and gain promotions for stand as my proudest career moments. We can use these same skills to reach your own goals! These experiences and education path have made me an expert tutor in several business subjects, study skills, historical subjects, as well as reading, writing, and English topics.

I attended a work study college where I had to work on campus in addition to the off campus jobs in order to graduate with my bachelors degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in International Business. I have also won numerous other competitions and awards in the realm of academia at all levels and pride myself on being able to teach in a compelling and memorable way. Please see my subject list for further detail if you are considering me for tutelage or view my profile for qualifications.

Generally, I request just 16 hours of notice for a lesson cancellation, but do offer rescheduling. For emergencies or short notice, I can add lessons in as little as four hours to give maximum flexibility to you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary Math

I have passed the proficiency exam for this subject, but wish to highlight some other achievements as credentials. In elementary school, I received several awards for prowess in Mathematics and continued that with approximately 35 visits to various math competitions in high school as a member of the math team. I was one of only two students from my school selected to attend state math competition, as well. In undergraduate college, I achieved an "A" grade in algebra, trigonometry, and calculus courses. I also feel very adept at working with young children and finding relevant, engaging methods to teach them with. That is why I always take time to tailor my methods to the individual to ensure the best results and the ability to continue succeeding in the subject after my tenure.
