BLACK PROFESSOR PROMISES TO PAY STUDENTS FOR BAD GRADES
Award-winning Speaker, Author, & Professor – Joe Martin, Ed.D.
Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — National award-winning speaker and author, Professor Joe Martin, claims schools pay him literally thousands of dollars each year for one reason only, "Because I help struggling students ace college. Period." However, the over 550,000+ students who’ve attended Professor Martin’s lectures in the past know his presentation is anything but common, as he promises to pay students $100 for any course in which they receive a "C" or lower after hearing or reading his message called, "Tricks of the Grade: Street-Smart Strategies for Acing College."
Martin, who’s based out of Tallahassee, Fla., is a product of his own message. He grew up in one of toughest inner city ghettos in Miami, Fla., the son of a 16-year old, single mom who was also a high school dropout and abusive alcoholic. However, at the age of 24, Martin made history by becoming the youngest professor ever hired to teach in a tenured-earning position in the state of Florida.
"After I graduated from high school, going to college wasn’t even an option," Martin recalls. "My standardized test scores were so low that I was told I wouldn’t even be allowed to ‘drive’ by a college, let alone get accepted into one. I laugh now, but hearing those comments at age 17 was very demoralizing."
In spite of being told he wouldn’t succeed in college, Martin persisted in pursuing his college degree, ultimately was voted "Student of the Year" at his university (The University of West Florida), and graduating at the top of his class by the age of 20. Martin credits his academic success to 10 strategies he calls the "Tricks of the Grade."
His book and eCourse, "Tricks of the Grade: Street-smart Strategies for Acing College," is popular among college students across the country. Although Martin doesn’t offer his book in bookstores, he has sold thousands of his books and eCourses through his web site and at his live lectures. He currently boasts a client list of well over 750 colleges and universities.
"Joe’s ‘Tricks of the Grade’ workshop was an absolute hit on our campus," says Katherine Titus-Becker, the student activities director at Florida Southern College in Lakeland. "Several students have commented about how they were using the techniques he taught them. They (students) said they’re achieving grades they once thought were unreachable."
The success of his book and lectures have garnered Professor Martin national recognition. According to Eric Lambert, the executive director of the Association for Programming Campus Activities (APCA), "Joe is one of the hottest speakers on the college market. Wherever he goes, he literally changes lives." APCA honored Martin as their national "Campus Speaker of the Year," as voted by college students across the country.
