My parents instilled the necessity of always having the appropriate tools for every task. For our sports activities, my Dad spent endless amounts of time researching the sneakers, cleats, helmets, ballet shoes, and cheerleading pom-poms that were to accompany my brother and I. Since there was no internet, we shopped from store-to store to ensure that our equipment would give us the best possible input to our performance. Not rich by any means, our parents felt that it was worth the expense in order for us to perform at our peaks.
It is with these thoughts in mind, that I have approached my career as an educator. I see education as a tool for life. It allows students to be better performers in a variety of ways, not just academically. The well-educated student has been trained to have a positive impact on his community and to be socially sound.
Therefore, it is this awareness that prompted my decision to become a Varsity Tutor. The vetting process, alone, proves that VT believes that the proper tools ensure peak performance. Rest assured that I will be instrumental in this vision of the well-educated student.
