Hello! My name is Gavin and I am very excited to be your tutor! My goal is to promote academic achievement through tutoring and in the process help students develop critical thinking skills they can use in their own life. I was born in Alexandria Virginia, where my aptitude for academia was first noticed and nurtured. My mother gave me multiplication tables to solve at a very young age, in fact I remember helping my teacher explain arithmetic in the second grade. In the third grade I was placed in the "gifted" class with the more advanced students. In the fifth grade I took the SAT for the first time and began attending a summer program in Pennsylvania called CTY or Center for Talented Youth. I took science course such as biology of the senses and forensics, at the time I believed I wanted to be a forensic scientist. But, as we all know things change. I took and passed Calculus my freshman year of high school and took the SAT again at 16 scoring a 1640. I retook it my Junior year and scored a 1780, which I took on with me to college. My best subject has always been mathematics and I hope to share what I've learned over the years with the students here at HeyTutor. Together we will achieve academic excellence!
