About Dillon

While working as a substitute teacher in 2011, I quickly utilized my Bachelor's Degree and extensive math knowledge to earn a full time math position at a Florida middle school.

Shortly after, my previous years coaching recreational basketball lead me to apply for the head coaching position at the middle school, where I coached for the following 2 years and successfully lead our team to the district's final four tournament. I enjoyed my time teaching and especially loved helping students who were eager to learn about the things which I was passionate and knowledgeable about.

As a previous middle school math teacher, I have taught various levels and subjects of math to a wide variety of on-task and below-task students.

Even since moving away from Florida and coaching, I still follow the game daily and quite intensely. I absolutely loved my time as a recreation team coach, leading a team to a championship game 4 out of the 5 years I coached, as well as coaching more advanced middle school children for Southport Middle School in Port Saint Lucie, FL, where our team reached the final four.

If you have an interest in improving your jump shot, better understanding fractions, gaining a better understanding of zone defenses, or any other grade school or sports related knowledge, please feel free to let me give you that knowledge and help you improve!
