About Dylan


Bio

Since the 8th grade, I have always loved tutoring. I learned early on that teaching other people not only brings out their full potential and brings me joy, but it also helps me stay sharp.

This principle was evident in my life, as it led to me being the valedictorian of my graduating high school class. In addition, this principle was reinforced when I was selected to join the Naval Nuclear field. My instructors explained that teaching others is one of the most effective ways of preserving...

Since the 8th grade, I have always loved tutoring. I learned early on that teaching other people not only brings out their full potential and brings me joy, but it also helps me stay sharp.

This principle was evident in my life, as it led to me being the valedictorian of my graduating high school class. In addition, this principle was reinforced when I was selected to join the Naval Nuclear field. My instructors explained that teaching others is one of the most effective ways of preserving and even broadening our own knowledge.

I have never held under an A+ in any high school class, I always tutored several grades (levels) ahead of any class I was in, my standardized testing skills are well above average (with the SAT running about 1800 and the ACT right under 30) and my ASVAB score was rated within the top 1% of all scores at 95%.

Please contact me if you have any questions, if there are any pricing or scheduling issues I am flexible. The hours of greatest availability fall between 6:00 P.M.-11:00 P.M. On Monday-Wednesday, and 5:00 P.M.-11:00 P.M. On Thursday-Friday. The weekends are generally open for lessons. Feel free to contact me if you need any extra information!

As a final note, it may save you money to not run a background check, as I have been reviewed and received a Top Secret/SCI clearance (This is the highest clearance in the United States, and is required for my job in the Navy). However, feel free to run another background check. Your trust and security are crucial for this endeavor!

Grammar

The relevance of Grammar is one of today's educational system's best kept secrets. While the practice may be tedious at times, mastery of this subject has many benefits. What matters most when studying this subject is the real-life applications that it entails. How you speak and write directly affects your personal and professional communication. Therefore, a good working knowledge of this subject will open many doors in your life.

Elementary Math

Math is one of the fundamental building blocks of success, and elementary mathematics is the fundamental basics of math. I have seen many successes and many failures throughout school, and I have noticed that all mathematical successes are the result of a solid foundation. If your child can master the basics, the more advanced math courses will be nothing more than adding bricks to an already-solid system of sustained groundwork. Trust me, your child will thank you later!

Homeschool

I was homeschooled by a combination of my parents and a computer program until the eighth grade. I understand that there has to be a different kind of connection that occurs for a student to truly grasp and understand information at home, as opposed to a classroom setting where there are teachers, other students, and other outside stimulus involved.

Literature,

Literature

Some literature classes are remarkably boring. Trust me, I know. I have definitely been there. That said, literature can be one of the most phenomenal fields of study solely because it broadens our knowledge base. Through literature we absorb knowledge of history, culture, communication, and thought. I have found that literature is only a story, and stories can be made to be interesting or boring. It's all about the approach.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

Although I am currently in the Navy, my ultimate goal is actually to become a pastor. I have always loved Bible studies, engaging in personal, educational, and professional studies. My entire high school was spent at a Christian school, which was also my church. I was top of my class every year in this subject, never scored below the top 1% in standardized tests that contain Biblical studies, and was the school Chaplain. Although I specialize in many different subjects, this particular subject has special interest and meaning to me.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

In addition to holding the highest grade in my class for Algebra 1 (as a junior high student competing with actual high schoolers), linear algebra has been particularly relevant to my life even after high school. It was a necessity in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program, is prevalent in many courses I am currently taking in sub school, and is one of the essential building blocks of professional knowledge and problem-solving.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the bridge between Algebra 1 and the more advanced maths, such as Trigonometry and Calculus. Having a solid foundation in basic math is important for nominal life skills and everyday practicality, but having a solid knowledge in Algebra 2 will give you the foundation to reach much higher levels of mathematical functionality. My motto for math courses from this subject up is, "learn to make this easy on yourself... it truly is only as hard as you make it."

Sports/Recreation

Basketball,

Basketball

I was point guard (switched between first and second team) in high school on a team that made it to the final four, despite being 5'0. I wasn't the student who had natural talent. On the contrary, I had to study handling, shooting, and finishing techniques using a very rigorous training program. I spent my summers using Micah Lancaster's "IM-possible" training regimen. These are the drills he used to train Kyrie Irving and Mario Chalmers once they became professional point guards for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat, respectively.
Fitness,

Fitness

I was always active as a child, and I have always loved being in shape. I always played sports, which lead to a healthy, fit adult life. I am in the Navy, which has lead to me learning and performing a variation of incredible workouts that are used to train submariners, divers, and even SEALs. I have also been trained by weight lifters who hold state records, in addition to a good friend of mine who holds national high school records.
Martial Arts,

Martial Arts

Being in the Navy is opened me up to some very unique and enjoyable experiences in martial arts. I myself do not have the proficiency to actually TEACH martial arts, but I can certainly reinforce or build on what an instructor has already taught. In my experience, this method has exponentially increased the student's ability to absorb information, master techniques, and advance beyond their current level.
Track & Field

Track & Field

Although I started track late in high school, I ended up going to state in the 1600m race. I'm not the fastest in the nation, and I am particularly short to be a natural champion in track, but that is what qualifies me to tutor in this area. My coach gave me the most extensive training there was to recompensate that I was not built to naturally rule the track. The improvement that simple changes in technique can bring are phenomenal. I have personally seen a multitude of people that are very fit to run, but become so much faster after they develop and perfect their style. In addition, I am a phenomenal motivator!

I have only taken the ASVAB once, because I studied well enough and employed the proper pneumonic the first time. I scored a 95 (out of 99) on the hardest version of the test, which rated me in the top half of the top 1% of all test takers in this category. I auto-qualified for selection into the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program.
