I am a recent graduate of University of Texas at Houston, where I earned my M.D. Also I attended St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, OK where I received a B.S. in Biology with a Pre-Medicine emphasis. I tutor Math and Science of many varieties with a special love for Biology and Chemistry. I have five years of experience tutoring Math and Science during my time working on my undergraduate studies and while I was an EMT.
My love for math and science propelled me into the healthcare field, which I felt was a calling for me. I loved learning how the body worked and how to fix it. This fascination forced me to delve deeply into Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Microbiology as all living things are complex and all these subjects were necessary for me to achieve the basic understanding of medicine I wanted.
My teaching philosophy is that the mind is complex and that no two are the same. Therefore, I recognize that being able to relate an academic subject to real life interest, provide multiple modalities of learning (verbal, visual, and kinesthetic), and even just providing alternative verbiage/vocabulary when describing a subject a subject can be the difference between a subject sticking in a student's head or the concept flying right past them and landing on the wall at the back of the room.
Outside of academia, I continue to be a Boy Scout at heart, with a love for the outdoors and all things nature. I am also an active member of the Society for Creative Anachronisms where I am a rapier fencer (sword fighting). I am also a fan of soccer especially the Houston Dynamo and US Men's National Team.
