I am passionate about helping people learn. It is so rewarding to guide someone to be able to achieve something they could not do before.
I love working with students. I am very much an extrovert so even when I am tired or stressed I still usually enjoy working with students. I find it extremely rewarding to see a student who has become smarter after we work together.
I got my physics, math, and Spanish education at the University of Kansas. I got my philosophy and theology education at Benedictine College (KS) and Catholic Distance University (online).
My master's is in theology with an emphasis in philosophy. My bachelor's is in philosophy and theology. I am also a certified high school teacher in AP Physics. I am working toward finishing my degree in physics from my college days and toward becoming fluent in Spanish.
I tutor AP Physics 1, Algebra, Algebra 2, Calculus, College Physics, Engineering, High School Physics, IB Physics, Math, Philosophical Ethics, Philosophy, Physics, Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Science, Social Sciences, Statics and Dynamics, and Trigonometry.
My favorite subjects to tutor are Physics and Philosophy because they challenge me to think and teach both abstractly and concretely. Physics and Philosophy also relate very easily to my life, so I can usually come up with good teaching examples from my personal experience.
I get passionate about whatever subject I am tutoring. I try to move from known to unknown and from concrete to abstract in the mind of the learner. I also try to use as few words as possible so as not to over explain or waste our time.
Outside of academics I am into basketball, fitness, spirituality, guitar, brass, keyboard, vocals, Spanish, and international travel.
