Calvin R.


Calvin has been surrounded by teachers his whole life—as a kid, he attended the Runnels School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which was founded and staffed by his family members. As a long-time tutor and now prospective high school science teacher, he is excited to finally be joining in the family trade. After graduating from Georgia Tech in three years with a BS in Biochemistry and a 4.0 GPA, Calvin spent two years mixing it up, academically speaking, by pursuing a second bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. He has won numerous awards for his scientific research, academic performance, and extracurricular contributions, but none have meant as much to him as winning Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for his work as a Linear Algebra TA at Georgia Tech. 

Calvin has been a tutor since 2009, and always eager to work on a wide range of subjects—from math to chemistry to English—with students of all age levels. At Cambridge Coaching, Calvin specializes in helping students with test prep, having himself received perfect scores on the SAT, ACT, and PSAT, along with 5’s on 19 AP exams and a near-perfect GRE. He has experience working with students with social and learning disabilities, including ADHD and autism spectrum disorder.

Teaching and learning are his main hobbies, but he also likes to draw with ink pens and paint with watercolors, fiddle around on stringed instruments (cello, ukulele, guitar) and have Zoom-enabled TV watch parties with socially distant friends.
