Following a two-decade career as an engineer, I returned to school to become a secondary mathematics instructor. I possess a bachelors of science degree in metallurgical engineering and graduated in 2019 from Utah State University with a masters of mathematics degree. I hold a level 4 endorsement to teach secondary mathematics in the state of Utah and plan to attain national board certification.

Ages I’ve worked with:

I currently teach and tutor middle school and high school level students. During graduate school I taught calculus and multivariable calculus to college students as a recitation instructor.

My tutoring style:

I work with parent and student alike to understand goals and develop a tutoring plan. I engage each student with proven pedagogies and work to build their confidence and proficiency in mathematics one step at a time. Students are continuously challenged in my tutoring sessions = they must work hard.

Success story:

During the early fall of 2020 I began tutoring a high school student who was failing his honors algebra 2 class, which had recently moved to an online format. Since the student typically earned straight A grades, the parents were very concerned. After several months of tutoring, the student now looks back at 3 consecutive terms with A grades in math and an overall performance that is at, or very near, the very top of his class at one of the top private schools in his city.

Hobbies and interests:

I love to spend time with my family and friends, run, hike, road trip and enjoy all things outdoors. I also love to cook and enjoy music. I spend way too much time listening to TED Talks and educational videos about philosophy, neuroscience and psychology. Oh, and muscle cars.

Subjects I have tutored:

Middle School Math, Pre-Alg, Alg 1 & 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus
