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.
Great tutor and patient!!!
We are a prior military family that just moved to Gainesville, unfortunately the last school district we were in was far behind most schools in VA. My daughter is in the 10th grade, and is taking PreAP Algebra. She was struggling because she wasn't taught certain concepts coming from our old school district and her current teacher assumes the students should already know this and doesn't take to the time to work with the students. My daughter currently has a "D" in her class and I was worried this would be the norm if I didn't take matters in my own hands. So I reached out to WyzAnt and found Anthony. I requested someone who could start right away because my daughter had test and quizzes coming up. I signed up on Friday and he was able to come out on Monday. She took two quizzes today and was so excited with the results she couldn't wait to call me at work when she got home. In one night Anthony was able to accomplish what her current Algebra teacher couldn't do since school started. I would recommend Anthony to any parent who's child needs help in Math as well as gaining their self confidence back. Thanks Anthony!!!Lynoria, 20 lessons with Anthony
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.Michelle, 1 lesson with Anthony
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.Daniela , 3 lessons with Anthony
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.Katherine, 7 lessons with Anthony
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
