After earning a degree in Economic Science, I am currently working on a new degree in Electrical Engineering at NOVA Annandale. For many years I have mentored and assisted service men and women, not only in their career tasks, but also in helping them pass college level entrance exams and writing research papers for school. I primarily tutor Algebra I and Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Economics. I also enjoy tutoring History, Geography, Business, and Government.
Outside of tutoring I enjoy kayaking, running, and I am pursuing a private pilot license as well. I also spend much time studying and practicing mathematics in pursuit of my new degree.
Seeing students succeed in areas where they have difficulty is truly rewarding for me. I believe that students learn best when a tutor can instill in them the meaning of underlying concepts when solving any problem. By leading students back to the basic foundation of any subject and then bringing them forward through each advancing level of a given problem, the student will further their ability to reason and to be confident in their abilities. Patience and the ability to try several different approaches until the student succeeds are characteristic of my style of tutoring.
I consider it a privilege to be asked to help improve a student's performance and confidence, and look forward to moving them towards their educational goals!
