I studied engineering and math at the University of Missouri - Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology), where I earned master's degrees in both subjects. After graduation, I worked as an embedded systems engineer and eventually joined a start-up technology company in 2001. After a few years, the company sold and I was able to become a teacher. I have taught both in high school and at community colleges full-time. I'm now teaching engineering technology and math as an adjunct instructor.
Being a teacher is one of the really great jobs in the world, and tutoring is one of the best ways to teach. As a tutor I get to work one-on-one with students, meaning that we go at the student's pace and take the approach that works best for the student. Tutoring is a personalized way of learning, and it is immensely satisfying when a student truly makes the subject his or her own.
