As the son of a professional educator and as one who has enjoyed both teaching and learning as a lifelong passion, I believe that education has an intrinsic value as well as its ability to set students up for future success. Growing up, I had mild cerebral palsy and was mentored by some wonderful, supportive educators who instilled in me a strong self-esteem and the value of an education. My fifth-grade teacher, told me one day after I was quite frustrated with not being able to do some physical activities with the other children "You may never be able to go throw a football and run, but you have a brain, use it!" With that as my premise I now want to encourage students to use what they have to be able to achieve their maximum success.

I actually began my tutoring career before I finished high school when I, somewhat accidentally began Tutoring a fellow student in my health class. I soon found out that I truly enjoyed helping others learn. Since then I have tutored while in college and when I have worked in mid management in grocery retail as I would help the high school and college students as they prepared for various classes and exams.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History from Sam Houston State University and have completed 34 hours towards a Masters in Family Therapy from University of Houston Clear Lake.
My favorite subjects to tutor are English, History, Social Studies, Special Education, Government and Economics. I have taught inclusion students in 6th grade Social Studies and the special needs students truly seemed to build a special connection with me as I also did with them. I also believe that there are natural correlations between the remaining subjects Social Studies is the study of various governments and this is covered in greater detail once students get into high school and study US Government and Economics. History (be in world, or United States), reaffirms lessons of the previously mentioned 3 subjects as well. Furthermore, in all these subjects, good reading and writing bis a necessity.
