As a homeschooling father of six young children, I know that outside tutoring may sound rather nonintuitive. I mean, home-educators do not usually think that it is altogether necessary to reach for outside help when it comes to drilling their seven-year-old in the multiplication table. 5×5=25, 5×6=30, 5×7=35…
But, guess what? That seven-year-old will soon—if not already—be expected to take the square root of a circle’s radius and multiply it by an enigmatic Greek letter to determine the area of a circle. Now, with just a basic algebraic knowledge, this equation may not prove very difficult for the typical parent to teach his child. But that is just the beginning of sorrows. Soon after, your child will be expected to ply his little brains on equations and mathematical notions and problems in geometry, trigonometry, and differential calculus, the likes through which your high-school elementary algebraic knowledge just won’t cut. Help will be needed.
That is why I’d like to introduce you to a fellow pray-at-home Catholic who happens to run an online and in-person tutoring service, Mr. Eric Hoyle! He’s been featured on this website before, in the Catholic Conversations show, in which we discuss jurisdiction. Mr. Hoyle’s credentials speak for themselves: His SAT score comes in at a staggering high 1580! (The highest possible score is just an inch above that at 1600); he has documented almost 4000 hours tutoring since 2008—no, that isn’t a typo, that’s four, with three zeros behind it! He has a B.A. in music theory and history (not easy!) and a minor in chemistry, which he has taught at the high school level.
Needless to say, Eric is not your typical, contemporary tutor. With expert knowledge in such subjects as mathematics (arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and problem solving; chemistry); and test preparation for SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, etc.; not to mention his general knowledge in Latin, Spanish, science, and music, Hoyle Tutoring presents a pedagogical panoply worthy of a medieval tutor—all that is missing is a lute and colorful stockings.
