Beth grew up on the east coast and moved to Texas as a young adult. She first thought of teaching after working with special needs kids at summer camp, and that led her to study special education. Not long after, she got married and started a family, and stayed home to teach her four children, two of whom received generous scholarships. She originally started tutoring as a way to make some extra money while still homeschooling her kids. After her own kids were launched, she spent three years as a math interventionist at Great Hearts Classical Charter School. Her students often say that she makes math less scary, that they don’t cry any more, that she explains things in a way that makes concepts more clear. Prior co-workers have exclaimed, “This was the most engaging example of math tutoring I have ever seen. The pacing was quick and vigorous, but the scholars were met just at their right level.” Her students at Great Hearts showed definite improvement in test scores, and her private students often bring up their SAT or ACT scores, or raise their grade in class. Though math is her strongest subject, she has also taught Spanish and some ELA. She lives for the moment when the light goes on and a student “gets it”! She also loves giving cooking classes and sewing lessons. In her free time, Beth enjoys gourmet cooking, gardening, and swing dancing.

“Shaun Ford, you are awesome! You were tremendous. I’ve learned a tremendous amount of tips on how to start writing my paper even if I don’t have the time…I will definitely be trying these in the future! I thank you for everything!” – Writing Retreat Participant
“I learned many things that I will apply to my writing, so thank you very much, Shaun!” – Writing Retreat Participant
“I had to commute from two towns over, take time off work, and come to campus on a Saturday morning at 6 a.m., and Shaun made this retreat worth all of the burden. This is the kind of programming that I expect. My confidence in my abilities and even finding joy in writing have all increased dramatically in only one-and-a-half days! Shaun is a fabulous facilitator, teacher, and tutor. I was formerly disappointed with the lack of support I experienced in my program before Shaun created this programming. Thank you, Shaun!” – Writing Retreat Participant
“Mr. Ford is awesome. He really cares about your learning philosophy. He knows a ton about literally every subject. He doesn’t baby you, and the lectures are really interesting. Sometimes you can just look around and see people just totally engaged with what he’s lecturing about.” – Anonymous survey respondent

Kyle G. has a dual degree in Math and Physics, but his love and passion for the STEM fields started long before college. During elementary school, he developed a deep curiosity for math – not just for successfully solving problems, but for learning the intricacies of how and why math works. In his spare time, Kyle pursued his other main passions: community and teaching. He was a leader within his Boy Scout troop, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in 2005. In college, Kyle focused his studies on Math and Physics with some added Education courses. Since graduating, Kyle has worked in the field of lasers and optics for more than 15 years although he never gave up on teaching. Even while occupied with his professional career Kyle still managed to serve as an adjunct professor at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and as an instructor for LiDARs.
These days, Kyle is fulfilling his passion for teaching by bringing his excitement for STEM to students who need a little (or a lot of) extra help to feel confident or to guide students who are ready to ramp up their learning trajectory. Kyle’s philosophy is that no two students are the same, so he focuses on adapting to how each student learns. He also loves fractals and doing proofs.
Dominic E. received his BA degree from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) in Jazz Studies. He is an accomplished musician who has won multiple awards for his playing and musicianship and has performed many different genres of music in several states. Dominic is a multitalented and skilled person whose love for music is only matched by his passion for math. Dominic’s love for math began when he was very young. He has been in advanced math classes, won multiple awards for his math abilities and academic performance, and uses his free time to discover new ways to understand and approach math. He believes that math is vital to many things which we do and he loves seeing students understand and come to appreciate it, as well as see its application to everyday life. In addition, Dominic recognizes that people learn differently and he has developed many ways to help students understand math, science, and music. Dominic firmly believes that math and music are intertwined and he, therefore, combines them in his teaching and tutoring when it is appropriate. Dominic is a unique individual who does not always learn in the traditional way that some schools teach. He has a strong desire to understand things on a deeper level so that they make sense to him and he seeks to help his students understand information and not just give back what was provided. He prides himself in meeting students where they are and helping them find ways to understand that work for them. One of the things that makes Dominic enjoy his work so much is when he is able to help students understand and go from struggling to success. Dominic has tutored many students in levels of math from elementary through advanced college, worked as a substitute teacher, taught small groups of students, worked as a high school teacher in math, technology and science, and tutored students in music from beginning to very advanced levels in theory, composition, performance skills, transcription, and song writing in most genres of music. Dominic combines his keen sense of humor and deep knowledge base to challenge students to understand material while building their confidence to try things which they previously thought were difficult or impossible – often times by tapping into their creativity.
