About Calvin

Hey everyone!
My name is Calvin. I'm a recent transplant from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. After graduation I was a theatre apprentice at the Actors Theatre of Louisville where I acted professionally, directed and worked with the education department. There I assisted a teacher doing what's called "Living Newspapers" at a local high school. I also held my own workshops on spoken word poetry. I prepped my little sister for kindergarten when I was 15 and she went to school knowing how to read, write, her colors, numbers, and knowing basic science and history facts.

Specifically for parents: Many times when children have a hard time learning, especially when there is not a learning disability involved, it is simply a lack of interest. In my experience I have learned that the best way to grab a young mind is teach them with things that are relevant to their life. It could be anything from Yo Gabba Gabba to Transformers. My technique is to engage them in the subjects with things they enjoy!


In my spare time I love doing gymnastics, acting, reading, hanging out with my friends and making breakfast!
