Award-Winning Science Tutors in Eads, TN
David ...on those two things, the learning and growth will come. It will come even faster with personalizing your working and applying it to your life. I was doubted in middle school and high school in even getting into college. I ended up doing fairly well on tests and got into a good college. I know what it's like being on both ends. Learning is about being open minded and realizing how much you don't know....

Steven I have a BBA and an MSBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Memphis, and I am a former Instructor at Southwest TN Community College. I started working at Southwest as a Math Tutor, and I've tutored elementary and high school students. I have also assisted several colleagues with standardized placement and proficiency tests and with their undergraduate and graduate courses.... I first try to figure out where each student is academically. They may not know themselves, but I make the best determination that I can with my understanding of the subject area. Next, I begin working with them to bring them up to speed with where they need to be. I explain, demonstrate, and let them practice in their coursework. I try to keep them aware of their own progress, and work with them to bring them to the point where they can master material at a sufficient pace on their own.

Zachary ...level of certification a teacher can achieve in the United States. After teaching in downtown Los Angeles for 7 years, my family and I moved to Memphis and began teaching at GRAD Academy Memphis as the Biology facilitator. I wholeheartedly believes in the mission to disrupt educational inequities. My pedagogy focuses on empowering students through meaningful relationships that are based on authentic care, in order to garner a deeper understanding of Biology.... A man and a young boy once walked along a shoreline covered with hundreds of fish that had washed ashore. As the man stared at all of the flopping fish, the young boy bent down to pick one up and walked towards the water. The man, lacking hope, asked, “What are you doing? You’re never going to save all of those fish.” Releasing the fish in his hand, the boy looked at the man and said, “I just saved that one.” Accordingly, my philosophy is that providing authentic care and empowerment within them engenders hope for the seemingly impossible. All students should have the opportunity to be that one, like the young boy, who will refuse to be hopeless and dare to transform their world for the better. And I owe it to them to care.
