“These people make the world more positive, and I want to be part of it. Tutoring is just plain fun!”

Bernard Hicks has been tutoring low level math students since 2010. Hicks combats his students’ math fears and frustrations with a mix of humor, enthusiasm, wisdom, and interest in their everyday lives.

Students enjoy working with Hicks because of his ability to establish rapport and help them understand math. One student voiced his appreciation when he said that Hicks is a friend in addition to being a tutor.

Hicks states, “The people I’ve met are super people needing a hand up. They are good people.”
