About Rodney

I have over eight years of extensive experience in the nonprofit work development sector as well as over thirteen years of total teaching experience including public school and nonprofit work in the following areas: Computer Skills (beginning, intermediate, and advanced), College Prep Mathematics, Business English, Debate, Spreadsheets, Mail Merge, Data Entry, E-mail, Internet Research, NRF Customer Service Certification, and Job Readiness.

I also have over 26 years of playing experience as both a novice and a professional trumpeter. One of my first professional gigs was backing up Martha Reeves and Vandellas at the Manhattan Center. I have performed and/or recorded with Brooklyn based drummer Brandon Sanders, with Zozo Afrobeat led by former Fela Kuti guitarist/vocalist Kaleta, with latin ska greats King Chango, with Brooklyn based hip hop collective The Lo Frequency on their EP The Export, with Brooklyn based independent MC Rabbi Darkside on his most recent release Prospect Avenue, and with culturally and sonically eclectic collective Sound Kulture.

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.

Algebra 2

I am former Mathematics Teacher who spent 5 years as a NYC Teaching Fellow. My undergraduate degree is a B.S. in Computer Science which I obtained as a full scholarship student from SC State University, and my postgraduate degree is a Masters in Secondary Mathematics Education which I obtained from Lehman College.

Career Development

I currently work for a Brooklyn based nonprofit as a Technology Instructor. I assist in editing resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn pages, online job search, and interview preparation. I primarily work with long termed unemployed adults helping them to identify their skill sets and teaching them how to sell their skill sets to obtain gainful employment. I assist the job developer in making sure that clients present a complete and consistent package to potential employers.

Microsoft Excel

I have MOS Certifications for Excel 2003, Excel 2007, and Excel 2010.

Microsoft Word

I possess Microsoft Office Specialist Certifications in Word 2003, Word 2007, Word 2007 Expert Level, and Word 2010. The only reason I do not have the Word 2013 Certification is because OBT as an organization has not upgraded to Office 2013 yet. I do use Office 2013 at home on a regular basis while at work I use Office 2010.

SAT Math

SAT Math is all about Mathematical Reasoning. It is about identifying all of the overlapping concepts and understanding how they relate to the specific problem. Each problem is like a puzzle whose entry point is found by identifying how the concepts interact. I love SAT Math problems because they really make you think and apply logic and reasoning.

Trumpet

I have been playing the trumpet for 26 years. I have also spent time performing and/or recording with Brooklyn based drummer Brandon Sanders, Zozo Afrobeat led by former Fela Kuti guitarist/vocalist Kaleta, latin ska greats King Chango, Brooklyn based hip hop collective The Lo Frequency and their EP The Export, and Brooklyn based independent MC Rabbi Darkside and his most recent release Prospect Avenue. For the last 11 years, I have played every Sunday at a local church in Brooklyn. I have performed at Cleopatra’s Needle, The Manhattan Center, The NYC Shrine, B.B. King’s, Carnegie Hall, and The Blue Note. I have studied with jazz trumpeters Andrew Loeffler, Jimmy Owens, Waldron Ricks, and Freddie Hendrix.

Great tutor

Rodney helped me with a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet assignment, which I was having trouble with. He was extremely patient and genuinely cared that I understood the material. He possesses a great knowledge of Microsoft office. I'm looking forward to using Rodney again in the future.
