I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. For the past two and a half years I have worked as an engineer for an exploration and production company in the oil industry. I will be returning to school this fall to pursue a Masters in Business Administration at New York University and saw an opportunity to work in something that I have always been passionate about: teaching. My first teaching experience came at age nine when I began instructing other students in Tae Kwon Do. I got a thrill out of passing my knowledge to other students and helping them become better practitioners. Throughout high school and college I tutored friends and classmates in various subjects, but mostly math and science. I enjoy tremendously the moment when a subject or concept finally "clicks" for a student. In my spare time I enjoy playing and listening to music and learning about new and interesting things.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that making subjects relatable to the student is the best way to make them interesting, and interesting subjects will motivate students to learn and grow.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
The most important thing to establish is a student's goals. Once goals are established, we can develop a plan together that will help the student meet and exceed those goals.
