I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and went on to receive a Master of Arts in English from San Diego State University. For the past three years my pursuit of and passion for education took me to San Antonio, Texas, where I worked on my PhD in English at the University of Texas at San Antonio. My wife and I have moved back to the San Diego area both to pursue our own teaching careers (my wife is a 5th grade teacher) and for me to complete work on my dissertation on South-American Spanish translations of American literature. I have a near life-long passion for helping students as I have been tutoring in some capacity since I was in high school and have been teaching since I graduated college in 2006, primarily focusing on Public Speaking, College Composition (Academic Writing), and Literature. I believe in student-centered learning, meaning that each student is different in terms of learning styles and interests, so I attempt to tailor my tutoring style in a way that best appeals to student interest and meets student need. Beyond my love of teaching, I also greatly enjoy travelling. My favorite trip was a three week trip to Spain after I graduated college in which I got to make full use of my Spanish skills that I had honed throughout high school and college. Most of my travelling, however, has been in the United States. Last May, my wife and I went to Boston, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, and Rhode Island for the first time, which helped me reach my personal goal of going to 30 states before I turned 30! I am also a life-long sports fan, especially of the Lakers in basketball and the Chargers in football. Beyond that, I enjoy going to concerts, hiking with my wife and dog, watching television and movies, and reading as much as possible.
