Owner, Score Tutors was a company I created to serve the students of greater Atlanta with private tutoring. I managed all aspects of the business, including most of the tutoring. When the opportunity to work for DMA came up, I decided to move on in order to make an impact on a wider audience of students, in subjects I'm passionate about.
