I have been called a professor, a teacher, a tutor, and a coach; but I prefer to be known as an educator. In each of these roles that I've played what remains most important to me are the lessons that transcend the subject. While a passing grade or a high score is a laudable accomplishment, I believe real praise should be reserved for the process. In my view, approaching a task with integrity constitutes a greater victory than any possible result. Self-reliance, a positive attitude, the benefits of practice, being responsible: these lessons enable students to succeed in both an immediate and long-term sense. These are the lessons that will empower students to better themselves in the classroom and outside of it. If I do my job correctly, my students will come to recognize that they do not need me to accomplish what they've set out to do.

I have the pedigree to teach at the highest levels. I have a doctorate in Comparative Literature, I have been an instructor at the university level for eight years, I have taught internationally, and I have assisted students of all ages in everything from physics to philosophy. It has been a great privilege to have the opportunities that I have had to develop myself within this vocation. I believe, however, that my qualifications would mean little if they were not complimented by a passionate dedication to education. I feel honored to be placed in a position to help people grow, not simply as students, but as citizens of this world.
