University of California, Santa Barbara
Ph.D., Electrical Engineering
I have always had an affinity to help others, especially in academia. I have been blessed with a knack for simplifying what seems complicated to students. After high school, I left my home country of Jamaica to go to Macalester College, a small Liberal Arts college, in Minnesota.
After 4 wonderful years of Minnesota and the frigid tundra, it was time to return to a climate more favorable to a Jamaican, so I decided to further my studies by joining the PhD program in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While working on my doctorate, I started tutoring students for standardized tests. It so happens, that I am phenomenal at drastically improving students’ test scores.
After completing my PhD in Electrical Engineering, I decided to devote myself to my passion for teaching and tutoring, which led me to start my own company, Tutoring Machines, LLC. In my own microcosm way, I am changing the world, one student at a time as I help them reach their goals through higher education
