Frequently Asked Questions

Who is tutoring the student?

I am. Read my entire bio HERE

Why do I tutor?

I have been a professional in the field of education for over fifteen years; within these fifteen years, I have seen the downfalls of various methodologies and philosophies of education. The education that I have been taught and have researched regarding the advancement of the field of education is seldom used or implemented in a correct manner. The dynamics of pedagogy have drastically changed because of digital technology in education which was fast-tracked in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Growing up in a home where both my parents were not just educators of tertiary education, they were very much invested in their students progress; when I became an educator, one of the main goals of my career became to benefit students with up-to-date interactive methodolgues of education. Being a private tutor has given me the opportunity to benefit my students based on my continuous research of education.

How long have I been teaching?

I have taught for over ten years at tertiary, secondary and primary educational levels. Presently I lecture music and classical guitar at the University of the Southern Caribbean and I am also a coordinator for two music programmes under the Ministry of Education.

Do you tutor by house calls?

Depending on your location in consideration to my commute and availability, yes. Otherwise, classes are held in POS.
