My name is Terrence, but I go by TJ.

Everybody has their own struggles - time management, conceptualization, practical application - and everyone needs to have those struggles addressed on a person-to-person basis.

Currently working at Illumina, saving up money to go to grad school because i've found out people mostly care about what letters you have before and after your name.

Memorable tutoring moment: I tutored a struggling sophomore from January to May in AP chemistry - in August she sent me a picture of her score - a 4!

Terrence is very patient and encouraging. He makes a point of having my daughter explain the methods she used when working problems so that he knows she understands the process. She "hates" math but never complains about it when Terrence is there to help her.
