To all my prospective clients and students:

Thank you for your consideration. To make sure that I am the right tutor for you or your child consider the following:

I believe it is incumbent upon me to ask the right questions, so that my students find answers through their powers of deductive and inductive reasoning. This gives them more confidence in their own abilities. At times I may suggest reading material that compliments the subject for a more comprehensive understanding, and suggest some problems or exercises from their text book.

I studied for 2 years at Georgia Tech before transferring to Georgia State where I received my BA in political science. I have a good understanding of the basic sciences: biology, chemistry and physics.
I feel comfortable teaching math up to high school algebra 1 and 2, geometry, English grammar, writing, the basic sciences and high school biology.

I have a fundamental knowledge of gardening and the apiary arts (bee keeping), and over twelve years of experience in construction and industrial design. From 2005 to 2013 I was an advisor to U.S. Security Force Assistance Teams at the Joint Rotational Training Center in Fort Polk, LA, to US Rangers at Forts Bragg and Benning; and to Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina and Ft. Hawthorne, Nevada.

I wish you success in 2016.

I was a civil engineering technician for a year, before becoming a designer and manufacturer of custom furniture. From 2008 to 2013 I worked as an advisor to US Army Security Force Assistance Teams.

I have a BA in political science and I am an avid writer. I love literature and I read about three books per month on a variety of subjects, from anthropology to biology.

Reading

My wife and I home schooled our four children. They are voracious readers with keen interests in myriad subjects from military history and anthropology to gardening and carpentry. In young students, proficiency in reading is built through practice; in older students, a healthy curiosity for some aspect of their world gives them the motivation to improve. With practice, patience and perseverance anyone can improve their skills. Being bilingual has given me the chance to develop an appreciation for the richness and beauty of words. I think if I convey that to my students quickly, their own curiosity and volition will lead them to success in any field they wish to pursue.

Great tutor!

Solomon was the first tutor to respond to our request and today is the first day of Ardian's Math tutoring. Solomon is calm and knows how to explain the materials to make Ardian understands. Ardian is going to continue having Solomon as a Tutor.
