I've always had a knack for learning. I can remember in elementary school, my teachers would come to me for geography questions. I would spend my nights and weekends reading encyclopedias and watching the History Channel - I know, I really was that kid.
But, by the time I had graduated from Sandra Day O'Connor High School, I was disappointed in the effort that I put into my school work. I never reached out for tutoring help, so I struggled to motivate myself in subjects like Algebra. I was headed to Arizona State University to study Linguistics when I decided that school was important to me.
At this point, I am studying History and Jewish Studies at ASU. I have learned the value of a good relationship with a course instructor, and having conversations with classmates about course material outside the classroom. In subjects like Hebrew, I have greatly benefited from tutors, who have helped dismantle the fear of learning another language.
In turn, I love to talk about history, religion, language, and writing with my friends and my students! I love helping people unlock the value of understanding history, or appreciating someone else's religion, or just writing an efficient paper.
When I'm not in school, I am probably playing the guitar at my church, drinking specialty coffee, or walking my dog with my wife.
Truthfully, I believe each student has the potential to become a scholar, and I will do anything to empower students in their studies.
