I am a PhD who has taught Math, Computer, Placement testing (e.g. SAT, ACT, etc.), Education, Astronomy, and Economics. I have taught in colleges, high schools, homes (private tutoring), and other venues. I am an academic and a Christian who enjoys helping students reach their goals as they enjoy the learning process.
I believe in being a "guide on the side" rather than a "sage on the stage." When the student engages in real world problem solving, learning becomes more meaningful and lasts for a lifetime. I believe in a Zone of Proximal Development for each student, so that they are constantly challenged, but in a way that allows them to progress step by step -- so that they are encouraged as they see their understanding of a subject grow at a steady pace. I like for them to be involved in the planning of their progress so that they have a sense of ownership of their learning.
I have availability evenings and on weekends and I also available by phone if a student needs immediate assistance.
