  • 2011-August 2013

    Humble Beginnings

    Before starting 1stChoice Tutors in 2014, I was employed at The Math Doctor (OB) where I tutored 6-12 math, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT math. I love sharing knowledge (even more than math) so much that when my employer at the time closed doors, I offered free help to students just for the opportunity to teach. Overtime more, and more students were referred to me and before long, I had a full schedule meeting students in coffee shops as well as in-home calls.

  • August 2013

    One foot in, one foot out

    With my clientele growing exponentially, it was time to look for office space. Commuting from house to coffee shop to house was too cumbersome. So I rented out a single room to better accomodate my awesome students. However, I still kept my day job with the Home Depot, too scared to take the leap.

  • May 2014

    Transition to Full Service

    As work relationships between various East Cobb schools and 1stChoice Tutors continued to flourish, it was evident that "I" had to change to "we". Dedicated tutors joined to help the ever growing student base excel in math. We expanded our office from a single unit to an entire suite in less than a year since the first office was opened.

  • Currently

    Continued Expansion

    We are honored to serve all of our students. We love each one dearly and we are fully invested in each of our students academic well being. We hope you will join our family as a student, parent, or a math tutor looking to make a positive difference in people's lives.
