I have a passion for learning and I love to spread that joy to others. I did a double major in mathematics and music at Knox College and extensively studied many core aspects of mathematics that most students never get a chance to touch. I believe that a true understanding of mathematics comes from a deeper understanding of these principles. It's more rewarding to know why mathematical principles work the way they do and be able to apply them more broadly than to simply know rote computations. That being said, the student should always be in control of their goals. It's my job to provide feedback, help them reach their goals and gain confidence in their abilities.

I enjoy playing video games and I love to read. Media provides stories that both entertain and deepen our understanding of life. I also play many instruments. Piano is my main one, but it wouldn't be weird to catch me toying around with most anything that makes noise. I can often be found sharpening my skills at a variety of topics, from art to math. I'm always taking some form of class to broaden or hone my skill set.
