I am a recent college graduate from Mercer University in May of 2014. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and I hope to begin attending school to become a Physician Assistant in August 2015. I recently moved to Houston and I am loving the chance to explore a brand new city. I just married the woman of my dreams on August 31, 2014. She is an emergency room nurse at Memorial Hermann Southwest Medical Center. My passion is for lifelong learning and particularly how it relates to medicine and the human body. I think that it is essential for young people to have someone in their life who is excited about learning and who can impart that passion to them. I strive to be a tutor who accomplishes this goal.
I have numerous hobbies which I like to partake in whenever given the chance. I enjoy playing and watching all different sports, but primarily find time to play basketball. I am very interested in fitness and health and enjoy cooking in my spare time. I also enjoy playing games on my Wii and PC, as well as reading all different genres of literature.
In high school I spent a great deal of time volunteering to tutor elementary students in a variety of subjects including reading, writing, arithmetic, science, and Latin. I college I was primarily a tutor for introductory chemistry, biology, and math. I also volunteered tutoring math and science to 5th and 3rd graders while in college and enjoyed it greatly. My favorite subjects to tutor are elementary math and science because I think it is essential to get young students excited in these subjects as early as possible. I strive to make the tutoring process as fun as possible while maintaining a focus on the material. I think it is important to help the students become independent learners and encourage them to be able to use logic to learn to material. More than anything, I want to help my students become effective critical thinkers and to show them how exciting learning can be.
