My most recent endeavor was working in cooperation with others to establish a Writing Center at National University. Graduating with honors and a Master's degree in Secondary Education-English and later a Doctorate in Etymology, I recognize hard work and attention to detail produces success in education.

As a devoted educator: two years as a student teacher, three years as a college professor-I recognize creating successful students is a responsibility crucial to forming a successful community. A complete education provides the establishment of knowledge - a vital article in a productive life. I specialize in tutoring English, grammar, literature, math, vocabulary, and writing for success in elementary, middle, and high school. College composition, literature, and creative writing are also within my specialties.

I try to allow flexibility with my time. While I have established a 24-hour cancellation policy, makeup sessions are available to accommodate possible instruction disruptions. Two makeup sessions are allowed in each lesson plan.

To offer students a comfortable environment to work with me, I tutor in virtual classrooms, cell phones, and other modern platforms. For convenience to older students and parents of younger students, I travel to locations closer to students as required.

My excitement to meet new students can only be matched by my desire to improve their grades and education. I await our journey together.

Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor!

Troy helped my daughter with her Lit/comp assignment. Although it was a last minute request Troy offered to help and worked very patiently with her. My daughter was not only able to complete her assignment in time , she is also confident about the book they are reading at school. All this with one session!

Highly Recommended

I hired Troy to help my son excel in his writing for high school Honors English class. After just a few lessons, I have seen a noticeable improvement in my son's writing. Also, Troy is very patient and understands the material well. He takes time to discuss my son's performance and progress with me. It is very hard to find tutors who don't feel rushed, with their busy schedules. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good English tutor.

Patient and fun tutor

Mr. Troy M. is a really good teacher and I like him a lot because he is patient and fun. He explains concepts in a way where it is not boring and you are paying attention without getting bored. Mr. Troy M. also has taught me certain writing rules which I didn't previously know such as try not to use which and that. Overall, I am happy with his class and I would recommend Mr. Troy M. as a tutor. P. S. I am a 5th grader.
