About Eric
My name is Eric M. B. I am a tutor with a four year college degree (B.A.) in math and philosophy and a sum total of eleven years experience in tutoring exclusively to students age 13 to adult. I love to tutor math and see students gain the math knowledge necessary to succeed in their math courses. I put emphasis on mathematical theory and in tutoring I exhibit precision, clarity, and most of all patience. Frequent repetition and further explanation of mathematical theorems and definitions is necessary. I also have the ability to tutor logic, politics, and civics(American government).

During my child's teaching, he learned how to say, write, and identify seasons, meats, clothing, phrases, and questions. The first day he learned how to say the Chinese alphabet. This had not been possible without Jiancheng Wu. :)

About Daron
I would like to personally thank you in advance for your consideration. My name is Daron Fullwood and I would be happy to assist you and your child. I am a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy with a B.S. in Mathematics and I
have a passion for teaching all levels, middle school through College, with over twenty years of math, science, English, and finance training experience.

I believe all students can learn given the right encouragement, a patient learning environment, and a proven approach/technique. My goal for each student is to make math, science, and English fun. I accomplish this goal by customizing the tutoring sessions to the unique needs and learning style of each student. Additionally, I communicate math, science, and English in a language students [and parents] can understand.

My tutoring service is best known for customizin
g our sessions to the unique needs of each student. My approach is to employ our time-tested tutoring technique (see it, learn it, do it, teach it) to simplify the math, science and grammar concepts. This approach, combined with real world examples and interactive computer-based instruction, gives my students confidence and sets us apart from other tutoring services.

Thank you again for your interest in my services! I respect the fact that you have choices so I thank you for considering me. I look forward to your continued confidence and future business.

About Kate
I'm a woman on a mission, and that mission is to make sure that every man, woman, and child understands EXACTLY how their money works.

I've been an accountant for a few years now, and I'm still shocked by how little people know about their own money. I mean, who doesn't have a credit card, a checking account, or own a stock or two? And yet, how many people actually know what that means? And, by extension - how many people are making good, informed decisions with their money?

I provide financial coaching for everyone - whether you're an entrepreneur wondering how to file taxes for their new enterprise, a nervous saver wondering how to maximize their money, or a teenager with their first job wondering what's up with all those payroll taxes!

If you have a desire to learn, then I love nothing more than to teach. I'd love to help educate yo
u on your path to financial stability.

All lessons will be creative and effective. We will set goals in the beginning, check our progress throughout the middle, and see how we both measured up in the end.
