April 2017

My name is Alan, and I am a graduate of North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC (December 2014) with a BA in Christian Studies. I am currently working on a Master of Divinity through Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. For Greek students, I have had 15 undergraduate and 9 graduate hours of Biblical Greek language courses. I graduated high school in 2011 at Charleston County School of the Arts in North Charleston, SC with a concentration in vocal music, but I excelled at math. I served as a tutor with the National Honor Society at CCSOA from 2009-2011 helping in all middle and high schools levels of Math, French, and Chemistry. I also have a teaching certificate as a Bible Specialist from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). I have a wife, Melissa, and daughter, Amelia, and we love to sing, read, and serve our church.

Alan tutored me in high school for an AP Statistics class that, let's face it, I should never have attempted in the first place. He was very patient and kind while helping me to understand things step by step and no matter how frustrated I was in myself, he never gave up on helping me! By far the best tutor I have ever had :)

Alan tutored me in Calculus while at NGU. He is very knowledgeable in the subject and did his best to help me understand such a foreign subject. He was very helpful to me and I know he would be very helpful to others.

Alan reviewed several of my papers from my Christian Studies classes at North Greenville University. He was extremely helpful and helped me receive an A on one of my papers for a hermeneutics class. I would highly recommend Alan as a tutor. He was very helpful for me and I have no doubt he will be a big help to others!
