My passion of tutoring started in 2001 when I was attending college at Georgia Southern University . In college I was doing pretty well in math while I saw some of my classmate’s struggle. I decided to offer free tutoring after class to help a couple students and that quickly grew into around 20 students. While doing this, I realized how much I enjoyed helping others find success in Mathematics. I quickly changed my major to Education and now I continue to do what I love, teach. There is no better joy to me than seeing a student that formerly struggled in mathematics develop a love of math and learning. After several parent’s reached out to me over the 14 years of teaching for me to help their child, I have found a way to reach students beyond my school: Apple Tutoring.
