It's all about the WHY. Why are we getting together to improve your performance? What are your goals? How can I help you get where you want to be? For me, finding the answer to this question is the most important aspect of my tutoring and teaching. If you know why you're putting in the work, I can get you on board with my training method and help get you where you want to be. I'm all about helping you set goals- and exceeding them! We'll likely even have some fun shattering your expectations along the way! I enjoy working with parents to help their sons and daughters achieve at a higher level. I encourage my students to challenge themselves and learn from their mistakes, but also to celebrate and build upon their successes. Just like any good coach, I take my students' missteps as my own and give them the credit for their victories. I've been through a challenging academic curriculum, and it wouldn't have been possible for me to have had the success I did without commitment, persistence, and a strong work ethic. I'm particularly skilled at relating life experiences to these all-important qualities.

While serving as a teacher and tutor for the Princeton Review test prep services, I continually generated referrals and repeat business. While serving as a graduate teaching assistant, I helped numerous students aspiring to gain admission into medical schools learn valuable lab techniques and science methods that have proven valuable in their medical education. Having been in medical and graduate school environments, worked in research and sales environments, and pursued independent business ventures, I have a great appreciation for the value of and the broad applicability of a good science education. My ability to communicate this to students has improved the overall quality and value they receive from working with me. I can't wait to meet you and help you reach (and exceed) your goals!

Biology

My graduate degree subject! I actively come up with methods to make the material relatable rather than just get my students to memorize facts. Whether you're going pre-med, getting into research, or want to be an athletic trainer I'm excited to help you learn and appreciate our life science!

Geometry

Geometry is a great subject because it's all about PROBLEM SOLVING. I believe that if you can recognize patterns and learn how to be efficient, you can become a master of geometry. Let's get started!

SAT Math

I have two years of experience helping students improve their SAT math scores. I can help you learn how to recognize and approach different question types, including all the shortcuts to make you a better test-taker. Let's get started and get you to your goal score and beyond!

SAT Reading

I have two years of experience teaching students on how to approach the different question types found in the SAT reading section. Anyone can improve his or her score if they learn HOW to recognize question types and use the right techniques. Let's get started and get you to your goal score!

SAT Writing

I have two years of experience helping students improve their scores on the SAT writing section. Of all the sections on the SAT, writing is my strongest--I can help you learn how to recognize errors in sentences and how to attack various question types in this section. Let's get started and get you to your goal score and beyond!

Trumpet

I have 23 years experience playing the trumpet. I have studied with various professional players and applied their practice methods. I have played in a variety of bands and ensembles in numerous musical genres. I have played in venues such as Carnegie Hall and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. I am currently working towards recording a second full-length album and continue to play professionally in various area churches and other venues.

Writing

Writing can be fun when you learn how to properly organize your ideas and grab your reader's attention. Having been through graduate school and writing for science papers, I've got the experience to help you become an excellent writer. Not to mention I'd always score the highest on the writing section of standardized tests!
