Meet Our Tutors
Hello, my name Wilbur Powell. I received my B.S in Mathematics from Hampton University and M. Ed in Educational Leadership from Regent University. I’m currently a high school mathematics teacher for the City of Virginia Beach. I’ve worked for Hampton Public Schools and Newport News Public Schools as an AVID Tutor for six years. After a three year career in Law Enforcement, I taught high school mathematics from December 2008 until present. I’m well versed in the requirements for the high school math Standards of Learning test (SOL).
Philosophy of Education
My philosophy of education is that all students will and can learn. Students learn at different paces. All stake holders should be continuously learning and open to change. Teachers and students should always be reminded of how special and talented that they are during this endeavor. Building confidence is the key to any educational pursuit. So my goal working with student and other colleagues is to build a sense of self-efficacy.
