I am a bio-medical engineering student with a minor in mathematics at Arizona State University. I absolutely love science and mathematics and look for any opportunity to help others to understand why these subjects fascinate me. I am currently in my senior year at ASU; I have a 3.96 GPA, and I am married with two young boys. For the past two years I have been working for the University Academic Success Program at ASU helping students excel in math, physics, and chemistry. Those I tutor come from a diverse background and often require assistance with advanced topics within the aforementioned subjects. Prior to starting my academic path, I spent 8 years in the Army. Half of my military career was spent as an air defense coordinator, and the other half as a respiratory therapist. I have a very broad set of skills and life lessons that I fall back on when I tutor. In my youth I was disinterested in education, and I joined the military when I was 19 because my grades did not leave me with many other options. The Army gave me the opportunity to rethink how I look at the world. I want students, especially young students struggling to find meaning in what they are doing in school, to grasp the impact that education can have in their lives if they embrace it.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I want to help students see the bigger picture. It's difficult to find a fascination in mathematics or the sciences when we are constantly bogged down with all of the details. My goal is to put concepts in context so that students can appreciate where they are going as much as where they are now.
