"I like to develop study guides with the student to help them pinpoint key topics and through the process engage in comprehensive review of the material. I let the students lead the direction of the sessions through their questions rather than lecturing. I am accessible and flexible with scheduling. I aim to relate the concepts to the student by explaining the information in everyday contexts and develop tricks and mnemonics to best grasp the material."

"Because every person is capable of understanding this logic, every person has latent writing talent, whether they are aware of it or not. I pride myself on being able to bring out this latent talent. I genuinely like working with people and helping them understand language in their own way, and I am good at doing so, as is evidenced by the fact that every one of my students has improved their grades under my tutelage. I also am a very good standardized test taker and teacher, largely for the same reasons I am a good English teacher. I help people see the patterns and logic of tests, and as is the case with my English clients, every one of my ...

" 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 ...
