About Armando

The young man in this profile picture is my oldest son. I'm the old man. This picture was taken at his wedding rehearsal dinner a few years ago.

As a certified teacher in both South Carolina and New York, I have over 15 years of class room experience. Also, I have taught college level courses in Small Business Management, World Politics, and Geography.

Tutoring allows me to teach life skills in addition to academic subject matter. These skills include research knowledge, critical thinking, and professional character. My tutoring students will be prepared for both college and career.

Math is everywhere in our daily lives. I am able to take complicated concepts and theorems, break them down to practical purpose, and teach them in an understandable way.

My teaching employment was the result of a career change from small business owner and manager t academic instructor. With nearly twenty years as a restaurant, retail, and financial services owner, I have acquired many hands-on skills to share with my students. These skills include tax preparation and money management.

Students will benefit from our tutoring sessions. Our education will focus on your academic needs and practical use in real life situations. Teaching is sharing knowledge. My goal is to impart knowledge and inspire a passion for lifelong learning.

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.
