I am a graduate of Saint John's University (Collegeville, MN) and received a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science. Since graduation, I have worked as a Software Engineer at a Fortune 500, third-party logistics company developing transportation management software. My industry experience has helped me grow my software development skills while providing many opportunities to take on mentorship roles with new employees. For the last year, I have also been involved with CoderDojo Twin Cities teaching students the basics of coding. I find mentorship exceedingly rewarding and I am very excited to use my experience to help students excel in the field of technology.
I find it important to center learning around the student's interests to keep things fun and engaging. All students learn differently and it is crucial to teach towards the strengths of the student. I also strive to give students the autonomy to influence how they want to learn to provide a sense of ownership for the learning process. Preparation is crucial for understanding a student's background, strengths/weaknesses, and expectations/goals. It's equally crucial to incorporate this information into lesson plans for the most effective use of time during the session. I am very excited to work with you to come up with a plan to meet your goals.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, and camping.
