About us:

If you are tired of going to the large tutoring services where they cram you into small desk with 200 people in the room, you have come to the right place!

The courses for which we offer tutoring are subjects that you can't cram for. That is why I provide weekly sessions to augment your normal studies. If I can help you to really learn the subject, you will be much better prepared for the variety of questions that may be asked on a test. Not only will these sessions help you get a better grade in the course you are currently taking, but it will also help the one after that.

I started tutoring math and physics right after graduation from A&M in the Fall of 1999. I started with small classes that met in either the library at A&M, or out of a spare bedroom in my house. I have many years experience with the teachers at A&M as well as with different teaching methods. I have worked primarily with small groups, but as my business has expanded I am now able to work with larger groups just as well. Weekly class sizes are restricted so that the quality of my service does not decrease, as class size increases.

As for my education, I have two degrees, one in Physics, and one in Civil Engineering. I was 2 classes short of a Math degree when A&M told me to get out. (I was trying to be a professional student.) I have close to 250 hours on my transcript with a wide variety of subjects.

My Family Motto: Instaurator Ruinae (repairer of ruin).
