I attended Texas A&M University for my Bachelors and Masters in Civil Engineering. After graduating, I moved to Midland, TX to work for ConocoPhillips before moving to Houston. During my academic and professional career, I have enjoyed mentoring and tutoring friends and younger engineers. In college, I was a graduate assistant for computer labs and did a considerable amount of training. During my time at ConocoPhillips, I had the opportunity to educate and mentor interns and new hire engineers from all different educational backgrounds. I remember clearly the challenges I had back in school when learning mathematics and physics, and I believe that is what makes me an effective tutor. I can usually find several ways to explain a topic and relate it to the real world.

What is your teaching philosophy?
As a trained engineer, I have always had to find applications when learning new math skills. Finding real world applications has helped me keep my math skills sharp, and it has allowed me to create a foundation on which I can build higher level math skills.
