Teaching and knowledge sharing is a life giving experience for me. However, not until recently did I realize just how I could share and cultivate this aspect of my life.
I have B.S in chemical engineering and have worked nearly ten years combined in oil/gas industry and the semiconductor industry. I have also studied psychology and counseling in a Master's program. When I look back over my education and career, I realize I am most alive when I am helping, teaching, and sharing with others.
Currently I am also a certified yoga teacher for both adults and children ages 6 - 14.
I immensely enjoy the shift in gears from an industry career to tutoring and teaching.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to create an environment conducive to learning-- an atmosphere that is safe enough to support risk taking and a sharing of ideas; one that recognizes there are different learning styles and incorporates relevant teaching modalities.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would start any first session with a few moments to get to know each other and connect. This would be followed by setting the outline of how we would nominally conduct our time together; for example, review last week's, look at new information, practice problems, wrap up, etc. Then, if there are no questions, we would get started by orienting to the task at hand!
