I am a middle school math teacher with the Humboldt Unified School District. As a certified teacher, I am constantly working to learn new teaching methods and techniques.

I started tutoring when I was 16 years old helping my younger brother learn algebra. While a student at Embry-Riddle, I continued tutoring in Calculus and Physics. I love seeing the light bulb moments when a student comprehends a subject that they thought would be impossible to grasp.

My teaching method combines auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning to help with comprehension and retention. With five years of experience as a design engineer and fabricator, I constantly break down abstract concepts into concrete examples and analogies.

I live in the Prescott Valley area with my wife and our four dogs. I look forward to working with you and helping demystify your challenging courses.

I also drive buses for Humboldt Unified School District in Arizona and transport preschool, elementary, and high school students regularly.
