Veteran Tutoring Program

 

Tutoring

Need extra help in math, science or writing?

The OVMSA and Excel Centers want to increase the academic resources for active duty, veteran, and military-connected students on campus. Tutors selected for the Student Veteran Program are either former military, military-affiliated and non-traditional students. They are excited to work with military students!

Math tutoring will continue to be offered in the center during the Fall 2018 semester! These will be tutor-led study sessions in order to reach as many students as possible. Dates and times are listed below. 

The Excel Center offers specific tutors for veteran students in science and writing! Scroll down to see their information and availability.

Hi! I'm Greg.  I have a bachelor's degree in philosophy and criminal justice from the University of North Florida.  I discovered my love for math through symbolic logic while pursuing my philosophy degree.  I have served five years in the Marine Corps as a Navy corpsman after finishing my first set of undergraduate degrees.  After exiting the military, I decided to return to school to study electrical engineering.  In addition to being a tutor for the Math Center, I am also a philosophy tutor for the Communication Center.
