I'm a recent graduate from the University of Arizona where I studied Aerospace Engineering and became an officer in the U.S. Air Force; I'm also currently a substitute teacher for DVUSD. Prior to that I was a swim instructor for five years and I tutored elementary school children for four years in college.
My favorite subjects to tutor are math and science because they are more like puzzles than problems that happen to require some "out of the box" thinking. I approach scenarios from a visual standpoint and try to explain the subject with several examples to help the student understand the material.
Outside of work I enjoy running, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, diving (water, scuba, and sky), wrestling, acting, singing, dancing, theatre work (crew), slacklining, yoga, acrobatics, hand balancing, and Netflix. I am a firm believer in diversity and I consider myself to be a "Jack of All Trades."
Please don't hesitate to contact me and let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you.
