Since I was young, I found I had an affinity towards mathematics. It is one of the subject that I can understand without difficulty and feel great about! I enjoy learning and teaching new, challenging math concepts, and many of my peers have approached me for help over the years. In June 2010, shortly after graduating of Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas, I choose to join the Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering at Texas Tech University wishing to pursue my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.
Mechanical Engineering was my career of choice because I have a strong need to be challenged and overcome myself. Engineering challenged me alright; it proved to be quite rough but rewarding nevertheless. My curiosity on how the world around us works drove me. This engineering path also gave me the opportunity to participate in my first internship. Last June through August 2014, I had the opportunity to work as a Facilities Mechanical Intern for CH2M Hill; there, I discovered that I am great working with others and can naturally assume a role of leadership.
Throughout my education, I have gained great value in the teaching process. I believe a good instructor must show passion, patience, and possess the ability to make topics contagious to his/her students. I would sum up my teaching philosophy with one of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
Although I have lived over nine years in “The Lone Star State," I am originally from Panama City, Panama. While living in these different countries, I have gained a great appreciation for all the different cultures of our people. I am bilingual and am currently working on my third language: Mandarin Chinese. You could say "people" are one of my hobbies. I also enjoy soccer, playing my guitar and appreciating nature.
Let us learn, grow and achieve, together.
