I am a father to a handsome baby boy born February 2012. I am also a husband to his beautiful mother. I love learning myself, but also love helping people learn. My hobbies include reading, sports (both playing and watching), music, history, and spending time with my family!
As an undergraduate at Florida College (Tampa, FL), I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, focusing on music, history, and biblical studies.
My studies in music included playing the oboe in the Wind Ensemble, singing in the Chorus and Chamber Choir, as well as taking private voice lessons. I have played the oboe in band for eleven years, taking private lessons for 8 of those years. I began singing with the Chamber Choir and Chorus during my first and second college semesters, respectively. Private voice lessons were also part of my music education, which I began during my first semester. Additionally, I took four semesters of music history classes. These classes focused on music history from pre-baroque through the twentieth century, with one semester dedicated to the study of American music history.
After attending church while growing up in Denver, Colorado, I entered college with a solid base of biblical knowledge. While at Florida College, I was privileged to earn college credit for courses covering most of the books in both the Old and New testaments, as well as surveys of Old Testament history and geography, all of which bolstered my knowledge base.
Another facet of my studies was history, with a focus on American history. I took two survey classes of American history which covered pre-history to the present. My other studies included courses focusing on the Civil War, World Wars (from both the American and European perspectives), and American intellectual history.
While attending Florida College, I worked tutoring math in the Florida College Math Lab. I tutored algebra, college algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus. I was head of the math lab during my junior and senior years, meaning in addition to tutoring all levels of math, I was in charge of scheduling other tutors.
Since returning to Colorado, I have privately tutored church friends in math and history. I am currently working towards my master's degree at the University of Colorado at Denver, focusing on the American West and public history.
In preparing students for the ACT's English test, I strive to bolster the student's punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure skills while also counseling them for organization and style. In addition, I strive to help students with time management and testing strategies specific to the ACT.
For four years I tutored math as an undergraduate. I strive to communicate an understanding of mathematical concepts which of course are critical for the ACT math portion. However, I also strive to communicate to students the importance of calm and quick thinking, as well as many test taking techniques that are unique to the ACT.
For four years I tutored math as an undergraduate. I have always enjoyed math and my time as a tutor allowed me to develop new and better ways of communicating mathematical ideas and concepts. I also love to see where math is used in the real world!
I tutored math from pre-algebra to calculus during my four years as an undergraduate. In addition to communicating fundamental concepts of Algebra 2, I strive to show how Algebra 2 is important and relevant to everyday life.
I thoroughly enjoy reading, studying, teaching, and tutoring American history. I am currently enrolled at University of Colorado at Denver as a graduate student working towards my Master's Degree in history. I love to share my knowledge of and enthusiasm for history with those around me!
Baseball has always been my favorite sport and I played baseball through my freshmen year in high school. I love helping coach younger kids in the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, and throwing while emphasizing the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.
I have been reading and studying the Bible my entire life. Additionally, my undergraduate studies included numerous Bible classes including Old and New Testament History and Geography; Evidences; Old Testament Poetry (Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes); as well as classes on The Book of Job; John; Romans, I and II Corinthians, Galations, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, I and II Timothy, Philemon, Hebrews, James I and II Peter, I, II and III John.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching young children because of their hunger for knowledge. I strive to teach children about elementary science by using examples from the world around them.
I have thoroughly enjoy reading since an early age. Some of my favorite authors are Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and C.S. Lewis. I also thoroughly enjoy writing. I strive to help students communicate their ideas more clearly, confidently, and concisely in writing. In reading I strive to help students think critically and analytically about the texts they encounter.
I believe that a well-rounded general education is important regardless of one's ambition in life. I strive to tutor and inspire students to become proficient in general education so they can fulfill their dreams for continuing their education or beginning a career!
I have been reading music since I first learned to play the clarinet in fifth grade. I continued my studies in music, playing the oboe from sixth grade through college. While in college I also began singing. I performed with the Chamber Choir and Chorus groups and received private voice lessons. As part of my undergraduate studies I took four semesters of music history.
Since I took Geometry in high school, it has been my favorite part of math. I thoroughly enjoyed proofs and theorems, as well as all the trigonometry involved. Even during my four years as a math tutor, geometry was still my favorite subject to help students with. While teaching students the fundamentals of geometry, I also strive to show them how it is logical and very easy to see in everyday life!
I write extensively for my schoolwork and always strive to present work free of grammatical errors. I stress to students that practicing correct grammar is not only essentially in writing for school, but a fantastic way to stand out as a confident and accomplished communicator.
From an early age, I have always been an avid reader and that passion continues to this day! While in school, history book consume much of my reading time, however; I thoroughly enjoy most literature. My favorite authors are Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and C.S. Lewis.
I use Microsoft excel extensively for work, school, and personal work.
I have used Microsoft Word extensively for school and work.
I thoroughly enjoy music of all types and I am a firm believer that an understanding of music history can only enhance one's musical experience (whether listening, playing, etc.). I studied Music History while an undergraduate and would love to share my passion and knowledge with others.
I tutored math of all levels for four years as an undergraduate. I believe prealgebra students should understand prealgebra techniques and practices, as well as its importance as a building block for other mathematical ideas. I also strive to demonstrate the relevance of prealgebra to everyday life.
I tutored math as an undergraduate for four years. I try and help students understand basic techniques and concepts from multiple points of view. I also strive to show precalculus' relevance to the world students see every day!
My school work requires me to write papers nearly weekly; therefore, I have developed strategies for quickly and thoroughly proofreading papers.
In both college and high school I thoroughly enjoyed the public speaking classes I took. While some people may never achieve complete comfort when it comes to public speaking, I strive to teach students to clearly and confidently communicate their ideas regardless of their fears.

I grew up playing baseball and softball. I have played softball in both Men's and Co-Ed leagues for the past five years at least two nights a week. I would love to share my knowledge and love for the sport with young players!
Throughout my college career as an undergraduate and graduate student, I have learned that study skills are extremely important to the success of every student. While these skills are vastly important, each student's specific needs are unique. I strive to instill students with study skills specific to their strengths that will help them in studying many different subjects.
