We started Army Smart to help service members and veterans find academic success after service

    Our Story    

I started my Army career at the Third Infantry Division in Ft Stewart, Georgia. I was surrounded by extremely competent senior NCOs who helped shape me into the officer I am today.

 

A group of NCOs I worked with were all struggling to pass the same statistics class. After spending over a decade in the Army they had lost the prerequisite math knowledge to be successful in a college statistics class. I spent several months tutoring them individually and they were all able to pass with grades of B+ or higher.

 

I started Army Smart so I could help more service members like them. Intelligent, driven, and competent individuals who are struggling with difficult classes and just needed a little extra help to succeed in college.
