I love math and I love science. Math and science are two areas of study that I take pride in knowing. They are the study of the world around us and how it works to the most minute detail. That fascinates me. So much so that I achieved a Bachelor of Science Degree in chemistry. It is my goal to put this same kind of passion, drive and excitement in all those around me. I hope that I will one day nerd out on math and science with all my students!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning is awesome, and the process of learning should be just as awesome. Education should not be a burden but a joy. I teach with awesomeness and joy.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would start by laying down a foundation for a healthy relationship with the student. The better the relationship, the better the learning process will be.

By helping and encouraging them to think critically and become a better problem solver.
