I currently attend medical school, getting my Master's in Surgical Assisting and I received my undergraduate degrees in Biology and Philosophy from Virginia Wesleyan College. My interest in the subjects that most students have difficulty with makes what I have to offer essential. Being able to teach a student to have an understanding of the work given to them so that they can be successful in any educational subject is one of the most rewarding things I have done in life. The fundamentals of subjects are what I have the capability to teach so that students will forever have a complete understanding.
In my free time I love to draw or play basketball. I was a collegiate athlete so I like to stay active now that I am no longer playing basketball at a competitive level. I also love animals so I am either playing with my fianc's dog Peaches or visiting my family to spend time with them and the family pets Diesel, Diamond, and Reign.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is that everything can be broken down into small, easy concepts that will be remembered for a lifetime.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session with a student, I would try to develop a relationship with them, finding out their likes, dislikes, and who they are as a person before I find out who they are as a student.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Finding out what sparks a child's interest and relating that interest to the subject they struggle with is something that I take pride in. This interest will allow the children to want to continue to learn more on their own.
