About Howard

With 18 years of experience I identify each student’s strengths and areas in need of improvement to raise each student's grades and test scores with practical, effective strategies. A life-long learner myself, I successfully tutor multiple subjects and SAT, ACT, and ASVAB tests. Students who work with me routinely raise SAT scores by 250 points (old SAT) and ACT scores by 5 composite points. Further, my brother has a profound learning disability; I have an intimate understanding of the academic struggles of these students. Many students with learning disabilities enjoy learning with me because of my patience and ability to connect with the student and his or her specific learning style. Your son or daughter will be successful. I look forward to hearing from you. Free Consultation.

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.

General Music

I earned a minor in Music from Tulane University where I studied the development of Western Music from Medieval Gregorian chants to Bebop Jazz of the 1950's. I also studied Eastern and Indigenous music as well as Music Theory. Further, I pursued a career as a songwriter for 10 years performing, recording, and copywriting original material while traversing the country.

Study Skills

I have a Master's degree in teaching high school English. I have tutored students for 10 years and study skills are an essential component of success. I create organized sections within a binder for each subject with a journal that itemizes the the due date, requirements, and notes. Further, study skills are created independently for each student's style of learning.

Perfect tutor for impossible class — Howard did a perfect job in tutoring an impossible class. I was taking an online Intro to Logic course with a professor who didn't teach out of a book and who wouldn't respond to questions. The class started off with a low score on the first exam and didn't get much better until I was desperate for help. Initial meeting with Howard was simply to explain what the course was, provide any material th ...
