Bio

I have a BBA in Computer Information Systems from Howard University (1982) and a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Marist College (1991). I was a 1985 recipient of the Outstanding Young Men of America Award. I served professionally as a computer programmer for more than 20 years and am currently career changing into the medical field.

I have a BBA in Computer Information Systems from Howard University (1982) and a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Marist College (1991). I was a 1985 recipient of the Outstanding Young Men of America Award. I served professionally as a computer programmer for more than 20 years and am currently career changing into the medical field. I have also completed Pre-Med studies (2003) and I'm currently in the process of completing an official BS Biology degree focusing on molecular biology. My ultimate desire is to offer a potential contribution to the overall cure for cancer. I would also like to complete a Masters / PhD in molecular biology. I have passionately tutored math and science since 1984 and will continue to encourage students to be the absolute best that they can be.

I have had the wonderful privilege of tutoring math and science part time, at all levels, to students (K-12) since 1984. My experience enables me to quickly ascertain each student's best learning style (visual, audible, or a combination) and then teach accordingly. This quality is essential to facilitate the learning process as it is directly evidenced by each student's measurable progress and self-confidence. Many students also develop additional learning styles in this process. I also engage each student to become comfortable enough to present his or her topic of study to someone else. Some of my former students now teach others.

So, I am passionate with each student regarding his or her subject matter and encourage each one ultimately to consider passing on the knowledge to someone else thereby enhancing our global society.

Subjects

Computer

COBOL,

COBOL

I have a BBA in Management Information Systems and an MS in Computer Science. I used COBOL for many of my undergrad projects, including one of my advanced programming courses, which used COBOL. I also programmed using COBOL professionally as an independent contractor. One of the many projects I used COBOL for was a Y2K project with PEPCO in Washington, DC to prevent many of their existing programs from crashing when handling data beyond 1999.
Computer Programming

Computer Programming

I have a BBA and MS in computer science and have done computer programming for 20+ years. I have written many programs, so I am very familiar with developing structured algorithms using pseudocode as well as using flowcharting.

Nutrition,

Nutrition

I took several nutrition couses at the University of the District of Columbia UDC) and Northern Virginia Community College. It was my major at UDC before I decided to switch to molecular biology to ultimately focus on cancer research, of which nutrition plays a major part in cancer prevention/cure. I understand how different foods are processed by the human body and possible effects on the body. For example and important particularly for diabetics, certain foods have a specific Glycemic index, which is an important factor in helping regulate blood sugar levels. Also, the body can convert a high fat diet to needed glucose to carry on glycolysis, but will ultimately end up in ketone body buildup, which would not be good in terms of body pH. Saturated fat contains hydrocarbons without any double bonds and too much can wreck havoc on the body in terms of overall health, etc...
Pharmacology

Pharmacology

I have completed undergraduate pharmacology and graduate pharmacology in pharmacy school, which enables me to understand and teach basic pharmacology. I understand dosage calculations, some drug to drug interactions, etc. I understand drug classifications and potential effects on body systems.

One lesson so far, but was time well spent

Anthony helped my daughter prepare for a Geometry test. She believes as a result of the tutoring session with Anthony that she did much better on the test than she would have. He was very patient and knowledgeable. We will schedule future tutoring sessions with Anthony as need arises.

Great tutor and will help me succeed!

I had trouble passing my TEAS math section and after failing for the third time I decided to seek help. With Anthony's help I was able to pass the TEAS. Anthony is really helpful, encouraging, & nonjudgmental. My last test percentile was 35 and today I scored a 66 which is double. I am extremely happy with my results and will recommend Anthony to anyone who is in need of some help to achieve their dreams.

Great Tutor!

I hired Anthony to help my 15-year-old daughter with Algebra. Anthony was very patient and equipped my daughter with a strong math foundation. He not only helped her improve her grades, but also gave her the confidence to continue on her own. I strongly recommend Anthony as a tutor.

The Turnaround Began After The First Session

Anthony is an excellent tutor. We have noticed a difference in our child's approach and true understanding of his A2 Trig class. Test grades are higher and confidence keeps getting higher. Excellent.

Anthony, 34 lessons with Anthony

One of the best!

With all his knowledge and patience my son is excelling in Algebra. He is always so prompt and a subject matter expert! I highly recommend him if your son or daughter is having a difficult time in math.

Sarah, 9 lessons with Anthony

Knows his stuff!

I had difficulty understanding the concept of the area of a triangle and how it relates to the law of sines and cosines, that is until I met with Anthony. He explained the concept in layman's terms both clearly and effectively. I feel much more confident completing my Trigonometry work after meeting with Anthony & I definitely will be meeting with him again.

Shane, 1 lesson with Anthony

Very knowledgable!

Very knowlegable of the subject matter and was a great help! His positive attitude and pleasant demeanour was an encouragement to me to work harder.

Conchita, 1 lesson with Anthony

Patient

First lesson today and daughter was tired. Anthony was patient with her and was able to draw her in to the lesson. She does wish for more interaction.

Kimberly, 1 lesson with Anthony
