About the Founder

My name is Tyrone G. Roberson Sr. I was born and raised in Spartanburg, S.C. and graduated from Spartanburg High School. After graduating, I served in the United States Army for 4 years 8 months. Once I discharged from the military, I attended Wichita State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. As a RN, I provided care to critically ill patients, worked in multiple leadership roles and became a certified Cardiac/Vascular Nurse, Adult Critical-Care Nurse and Emergency Nurse. Several years later, I earned a Master’s in the Science of Nursing from the University of Cincinnati. Currently, I am working as a Nurse Practitioner and I am Board-Certified in Adult-Gerontology and Primary Care.

Our children’s success and health are two very important concerns of any community. I am looking forward to working with the community to assist in these two areas. I had the pleasure of tutoring elementary students in college and quickly recognized the need for tutoring. After speaking with members in our community, I realize our community could benefit from a tutoring program. Tutoring can be expensive that’s why we have decided to offer tutoring at no charge. While in the healthcare field over the last 24 years, I’ve noticed a knowledge gap between the healthcare provider and patient. My goal is to decrease the knowledge gap through education of health conditions, risk factors, diagnostic test and treatment options.
