I am a graduate of Chadron State College. As a former U.S. Marine, I completed my BS in Mathematics and my MA in Math Education through the Hybrid program. I have taught new Marines how to fly on military helicopters. I have also taught Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 in High School, 6th grade math in Middle School, and College courses.
I am a professor at Valencia College. I regularly teach College Mathematics (UCF calls it Finite Math), College Algebra, and Statistical Methods. I teach these face-to-face as well as online; I am very comfortable with creating videos for my classes and working with students remotely.
I am particularly fond of Statistics. Statistics is weird; even die-hard "math people" have issues with Statistics. I like it because there is a lot more common sense and reasoning involved; it's not just finding the right formula to use.
My sessions are very conversational. You know when you're in a hard math class, and you feel like no one can help. But then you realize that you know someone that took the class last semester and aced it - that's me! This stuff is all fresh in my mind and I know what they're looking for and what they're trying to say. I'm here to help.

I love hanging out with my wife and son. We try to do as much as we can as a family. We enjoy all things Disney. I like helping my little boy with Legos. We like riding bikes around our neighborhood.
