Introduction: I am a retired university professor; I have a Ph.D. in measurement and evaluation (the degree for those who make the SAT/ACT/ASVAB etc.) and a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology (so I also help students with memory tricks, time management, and to overcome test anxiety). I make learning fun. I have a number of tricks and tips that help students learn faster while at the same time making them smile. I think of ways that the student will eventually use the information in real life too. This way, their brain will retain what they learn. I love seeing the light bulb go on over someone's head. They have just had an "ah-hah" moment and that gives me a charge.

Dr. Lunsford is the first tutor that our son could relate to and also helped to feel that he could overcome any fear or barrier towards test taking. Our sin is motivated and feels valued. Dr. Lunsford is hands down the best at what he does. Compared to other tutoring agencies, he is kind, attentive and knows his area of expertise. I would HIGHLY recommend him!!

I approached Dr. Lunsford over the summer to help me prepare for standardized tests. He was a huge help in helping me figure exactly where I was going wrong in my test taking and in teaching me strategies to overcome those mistakes. As a result, I landed with a 1550 in SAT and a perfect score of 36 in the ACT. Dr. Lunsford, thank you for all your help and advice - I could not have achieved those scores without your guidance!

I had such a great experience with Dr. Lunsford. I had completely stopped studying for the SAT when I met with Dr. Lunsford for the first time, and in two weeks Dr. Lunsford helped me dramatically. By giving me the chance to do practice tests and then carefully go over them, making sure that I knew why and where I made mistakes, Dr. Lunsford's classes were invaluable. Without his classes, I am sure that I would not have received my score of 1560. In addition, Dr. Lunsford always responded to me very quickly, and also helped me feel much less anxious about taking the test. I 100% recommend Dr. Lunsford !

What a great guy. We hired him to help my wife with Statistics. In just one hour, she was on her way to passing grades and was relieved of all of the stress this class was causing her. Thank you a bunch!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $60 an hour. There is no need to book more than one session at a time. No commitments are needed concerning time frame - I am flexible to work within the timeframe of the client.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    You are welcome to book a time with me to have a consultation or go straight to the calendar to either book a time to come to me or to a mutually convenient place and I also have a wonderful program which will enable me to work with you online. It enables me to see you, you to see me, and for me to write on my screen and you see the answers appear on your screen. I can also see the things that appear on your screen when you want me to see it. I can record the entire session so that you can go back and watch it again for the things that you missed first time.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a retired university professor (University of South Florida, University of Florida, Keiser University, St. Leo University, and University of Tampa); I have a Ph.D. in measurement and evaluation (the degree for those who make the SAT/ACT/ASVAB etc.) and a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology (so I also help students with memory tricks, time management, and overcoming test anxiety).
