About Joey

I have lived in Greenville for over 20 years. I received my education and varsity letters (football, track) from Furman University. I majored in chemistry, and have taught and tutored in science and math, at both the middle school, high school, and college levels.

In teaching, I love seeing when students "get it." It's almost like you can hear and see the lightbulb go on in their brain.

I took (and made A's in) extra calculus classes at Furman. I have taught middle school math and algebra as a long-term sub.

I was a chemistry major (undergrad and graduate degrees), and I worked as a chemist for 10 years.

I would love to help you learn!

I've enjoyed getting to know and guide him. I love the feeling when he "gets" it!

Honestly, I hope he doesn't need a tutor again, but I'd be glad to help him if he does. He seems to pick up on things as I explain them, and is eager to learn.

"The Perfect Tutor!"

It was my pleasure to help him! He just needed some guidance in the right direction, and we were able to think through the problems.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chess

I have played chess for over 30 years. I competed in multiple tournaments as a youth, and winning one and placing second in another. I have taught chess in group settings to elementary and middle school students.

Football

I played football for 10 years. I started in the 8th grade, and was a starter on 2 state championship in high school. Then I played at Furman University, earning 4 letters.

Organic Chemistry

I made A's in all my organic chemistry classes at Furman. I did 4 summers of summer research in organic synthesis. I did 3 more years of this type of work in my first job.

Joey helped my son understand geometry procedures and then made him practice them to reinforce his memory. My son understood him and liked his manner and method.
