We started Army Smart to help service members and veterans find success after service
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 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 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 and driven individuals who are being held back by compulsory math and stats modules.
Out team has grown to include 35 volunteer tutors from across the services as well as several civilian volunteers who help us analyze data on how to tutor in the best possible way. We hope to continue growing and help more service members achieve their goals through higher education.
