I received my BS in nuclear engineering from the University of Tennessee. I am currently seeking my MS in Engineering Management at USF. I have informally tutored classmates and underclassmen while at the University of Tennessee. My favorite subjects to tutor are math, physics, and engineering because I enjoy problem solving. My approach to tutoring is hands on problem solving while helping the student grasp concepts with real world examples. I enjoy any activities which get me outside including fishing, hiking, and golf. I am former nuclear engineer with in-depth knowledge in calculus, physics, engineering, upper level math, and statistics. Pick me if you want to grasp concepts quickly, learn how they apply in the real world, or talk about fishing!

Q & A
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I show them how what they are learning is used in the real world.
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that students learn best when they discover the answers themselves. I guide students so that they reach the correct conclusions and can apply the concepts.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I gauge where the student is and how I can best help the student reach their learning goals. I also engage with the student so that I can relate the material to areas that they are interested in.
