About this tutor

Do you feel nobdy cares, doesn't understand you, or won't take the extra time to explain because you aren't like the rest of the class. Do you want to finally gain an edge and turn you ADHD into a gift of unlimited potential instead of it being a curse everyone makes it out to be? You can spend less time studying, reading, and memorizing boring concepts, while achieving an exciting true working comprehension of the subject that applies to your interest. Uncover innovative learning practices that will keep you focused so you can know what to study, not just how to study? Is your goal not only to obtain short term academic success but long term retention of complex concepts required for higher learning insitutions and the advancement of applications for the real world while using ADHD to your advantage. Do you struggle grasping a clear comprehensive understanding of the core basics and building blocks of mathmatics, science, and advanced writing techniques, and find yourself lost as concepts become more complex. My goal is to help you focus on you first then the subject. You will learn to be your best not only at school but also prepare yourself for life after graduation. I will teach you to think, question, understand, and problem solve for both academics and how your education will shape your futrue career. Once you learn how to tap into your the gift of ADHD the sky is the limit  in both school and life. I want you to understand people with ADHD are brilliant creative visionaries whose mind is highly complex compared to most others. Unfortunately you sometimes have trouble dealing with those who fall into the masses. You must understand that you are not unteachable or a distraction but an artist who is a free thinker and a strong minded individual who is not afraid to think or question ideas outside the realm of "one size fits all" cirriculums. I will tell what, this doesn't really doesn't frustrate others as much as it scares them. 

If you are looking for a tutor who just reviews you homework, recites you notes back to you, and is your study buddy, then I am not the right tudor.

I have 30 years real world experience and have worked for and with some of the most cutting edge companies on the globe such as: General Electric, The Johns Hopkins University and the international water giant Suez. I orchestrated, directed and actively taught coutless learning sessions, online courses and was the key presenter at large scale seminars and professional events speaking to all types of people. Secondly I have also had the opportunity to work with small businesses and startups where I was able to work on a more intimate levle with both clients and employees. Third, I am a proud disabled US Army Veteran who understands overcoming hardships and what it takes to succeed. In addition, I am lifetime memeber of the International High IQ Society, International Who's Who of Poetry, and National Honor Society. I am a company visionary, published author, screenwriter, and research sciencetist. I have worked in surgery, medicine, chemistry, engineering, music and arts, as well as creative, business and technical writing. I have a BS in Biology/Biochemistry  and Certificate in Astrobiology. There are a lot of choices for tudors, but I am unique and probably the most well rounded instructor available. I aim to be more than an academic tudor and more of life mentor who understands what they are going through. I don't teach you to cope with ADHD I teach you to recognize, utilize it, and ride the roller coaster of excitement to sustained success and happiness both inside and outside of the classroom. 

If you are interested in possibly using my learning/mentoring service please contact me directly. We can discuss what you want and how I could possibly help you meet those needs. The second step is to set up a one on one personal evalution to get to know you as a person. I currently have three slots open for the right person who shares my values and dedication to learning. Each scholar is different so each program is customized to both the individual's academic and life goals. In conclusion I welcome and encourage all scholars at the High School and college level. I accept anyone who needs assistsance especially those dealing with diagnosed learning disabilities. Life is hard enough but learning shouldn't be. Trust me I know.

I currently specialize in the following subjects for all types of students. I find the biggest issue is that students fail early on and then just get further and further behind. Step one with me is to always ensure each scholar masters the basics of their subject. If you master the basics everything else down the road is much easier.

    Craig actually spent the time to get to know me and worked to uncover why I seemed to know the material but still was getting D's on my exams. He not only helped not only with my Algebra but taught me how to use my ADD to help me instead of hurt me. I spend less time being frustrated and more time focusing on what I need to know and not wasting time on stuff that is not relevant. I am now a B student and working towards an A next semester.
