"Thinking critically and solving problems is a skill and it needs to be fostered like any other. Our brains process information in many different ways, so I like to use a combintation of real-world examples as well as the text book variety. All we need to do is find out how to make the concepts "click" for you, then I will help you develop the long-term knowledge by instilling good habit patterns of studying and practice."

" However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid ...

" Despite having a full-time job, about a month after graduation I realized that there was something missing in my day and that was school. While I do not have plans to return to school as a student immediately, I began to look into other venues where I could be involved in academics and help others succeed. The solution I found was to look into tutoring other students and that is how I found Varsity Tutors.
