Born and raised in Woolwich, Maine I'm a recent resident of the Pacific Northwest. I just graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University in Boston in January of 2016. I currently work full time as a Project Engineer designing and building custom equipment for manufacturing airplanes in Mukilteo, WA.

I've always loved math and science, which drove me down the career path I'm on. I challenged myself in high school and took advantage of every opportunity I could to learn more about these subjects. I took AP classes, college classes online, and was a part of several science and math based competitive teams. In college, I furthered my education by completing advanced courses in math, physics, and engineering.

While I didn't start officially tutoring until I was in college, I've always found the time to help my friends and fellow students when they were having trouble with a concept or problem. I really enjoy being able to explain complex topics in simple, easy to understand ways so that those around me can gain a better understanding of the world.

I spend my free time hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, wind surfing, and traveling. I also have a love for seafood and the open ocean.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My general teaching philosophy is that no subject or material is too hard for someone to learn. Some topics come easily and others require more work and effort to achieve true proficiency. However with some dedication, repetition, and hard work, I believe that there is no limit to what you can learn, and how that knowledge can be applied.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During a first session, I would start by getting to know the student. I would want to understand their personality, how they understand the world around them, and what they like and dislike. These areas may not seem relevant to the particular lesson at hand, but I find students often struggle more with how the material is being taught, rather than with the material itself. By understanding a student, I can more effectively adapt my teaching style to their learning style, to allow them to reach their goals.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I find curiosity to be a driving factor in creating independent learners. An understanding of relevance drives curiosity. If a student can understand why the material matters, why they should even care, then they will naturally become more curious, and soon start learning on their own. So my method would be to explain and demonstrate how the things they are being taught have purpose and meaning, with the hope of sparking their curiosity and desire to learn.
