My objective as a tutor is to deliver maximum life-long values: conceptual understanding, a rekindled love for learning, confidence, genuine self-esteem, and friendship. I deliver these by focusing on conceptual understanding. Most difficulties with the current materials come from not having mastered the earlier concepts or skills. I locate these earlier misunderstandings by asking questions like, "Walk me through this problem and explain your thought process" or "How are you thinking about this problem?" It's normal to get confused responses to these questions, but whatever response is offered, I can dig deeper by asking additional questions. Upon finding underlying areas that are not understood, I deliver focused learning experiences designed to quickly, easily, and enjoyably bring about conceptual understanding. I can off these kinds of mini-lessons immediately and without additional preparation because I myself have conceptual mastery of nearly the entire math and physics curricula from elementary through the first 4 years of college.

When I am not tutoring: I am seeking employment in the medical device and aerospace industries as a Quality Engineer or Reliability Engineer, creating heart and mind expanding experiences for my wife and daughters, supporting my daughter's acting career and rigorous talent development programs, reading for learning or pleasure, authoring heart and mind expanding books, engaging in aggressive personal development, exploring the fullness of what life has to offer, laughing, learning, and creating values for the world.
