I first began tutoring and mentoring high school and college students when I was an undergraduate studying Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas. After working with many students I have found that most fall into one of two categories: there are those that are struggling with their studies and need help to reach satisfactory performance and there are those that are driven and ambitious and want to become top performers and bring their abilities to the next level. I truly believe that with some guidance, effort, desire, and discipline academic success is within reach for all students regardless of skill level. My teaching objective is to create a customized, holistic learning experience for each student that seeks to resolve immediate knowledge deficiencies as well as grow their intellectual capacity. I want my students to learn and benefit not only from my academic knowledge of math and science but also grow and gain from my experiences as a graduate from a top university and as a professional with NASA and a Fortune 500 company. As a dedicated life-long learner I spend a significant amount of my free time reading books and materials on a wide array of topics including science, philosophy, business, economics, and history. I love spending time with my family, traveling, and exercising. I’m passionate about solving problems and I truly enjoy helping people win.
