About Garrett


Bio

I am a graduate of Baylor University’s pre-med program, where I specialized in science and lab investigatory skills (Biology, Chemistry, Organic/Physical Chemistry, and Physics). I’m a native Floridian, but I moved to Texas when I was five. I enjoy spending time with my two children, going to the movies, traveling, attending church, trying new foods, and reading about current events.
As a physics teacher, I tend to be flexible, relaxed, and willing to do whatever it takes to help all...

I am a graduate of Baylor University’s pre-med program, where I specialized in science and lab investigatory skills (Biology, Chemistry, Organic/Physical Chemistry, and Physics). I’m a native Floridian, but I moved to Texas when I was five. I enjoy spending time with my two children, going to the movies, traveling, attending church, trying new foods, and reading about current events.
As a physics teacher, I tend to be flexible, relaxed, and willing to do whatever it takes to help all students succeed. My tutoring style focuses on identifying student strengths along with the methods and explanations that suit those strengths. I have a knack for finding alternative ways to explain difficult topics that make learning easier. I strive to create a fun, relaxing, encouraging and collaborative environment so that students feel comfortable tackling material, asking questions, and identifying their progress.
I have had thirteen years of tutoring experience. I have tutored students specifically to help them grow their SAT scores by over 100 cumulative points. I am comfortable with tutoring students in all of the concepts and skills tested on the SAT, including the essay. I am also thoroughly familiar with the ACT science section, and I have spent three years tutoring students in ACT Science prep.
I hold an active Texas Standard Teaching Certification in Physical Science in grades 8-12. I have been teaching high school physics and chemistry for thirteen years. I have had the chance to work closely with road-to-college teams at the schools that I have worked for. I have also written teacher recommendation letters for hundreds of my own students to their universities of choice. I’m excited to help students prepare for college successfully.
Ultimately, I want all of my students to find success in whatever their pursuit. I am committed to helping students understand the content so that each can be confident as they go forward in their academic career. I aim to give specific feedback during each of my tutoring sessions, so that students know what they are doing well in and what they need to improve upon. I am always easy to reach, and I will always provide a fast response. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!
