My philosophy is to be patient and help the student become an independent learner (to tutor myself out of a job!). I especially enjoy helping students develop self-confidence through working through as much of the material as they can on their own, providing hints when they need them.

I love music! Voice and piano. I read voraciously and widely, especially philosophy, history, and sociology. I continue to study mathematics and am strongly interested in its artistic and cultural side. Relaxing with some college football and basketball is always good too.
