I am a graduate of Oregon State University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Aerospace Engineering. Since graduation, I have found a passion for helping others learn or improve their knowledge. Most recently, I have worked as a ski instructor teaching young children (3.5-5 yrs.), coached kids soccer (8-10 yrs.), and tutored math at a local community college. In each of these settings, I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge to a wide variety of people through engaging interactions. My job is to build confidence, check understanding, and provide encouragement. To me, math is a puzzle, and there are multiple ways to solve a puzzle. Everyone has their own thought process; it is part of my responsibility as a tutor to connect with the student so we can learn to work together. In my spare time, I like to strike a balance between getting outside, playing the sports I love, and working on improving myself through online classes and continually sharpening my skills.
