I am currently a college and university teacher with many years of teaching both K-12 students, college students, and adult education students. Subjects I teach include computer networking, programming, office applications, GIS, math, screenwriting, physics, electronics, chemistry and graphics. My bachelors of science is in Mechanical Engineering. In addition I have a masters in Computer Information Systems, a certificate in computer programming and a liberal arts degree. Currently I am pursuing my Masters in Applied Math from University of Washington. I love math and writing. The secretary to the Solano College president once took a class from me and she said to me, "If a student can't learn from me, he or she can't learn." I am well-regarded and loved as a teacher on my campuses. I have often tutored students in various subjects. I love to learn and hopefully inspire that in all that I reach. I use humor and fun and simple explanation to inspire learning.

Really helpful, kind and patient! — She really took time to explain certain steps out. I really appreciate that she explained some of the main principals of algebra too. Shes very kind and easy to talk to so I don't see where I will have a problem speaking up if I don't understand something. I'm so appreciative that she brought me a workbook and worksheets to practice with until our next lesson. ...
