I just finished up my first year of medical school at Florida Atlantic University, and will be starting back up for the second year in August of 2014.
About me: I went to Suncoast Community High School, and graduated with an IB diploma in 2000. I graduated with over a 4.0 and was a National Merit semi-finalist. I took the SAT II
, scoring a perfect 800. I also have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring math
subjects including algebra
, and precalc. If you are looking for a math tutor, I might be a good fit for you! I am also competent in and passionate about many other subjects, which you will see listed in my profile.
After graduation from high school I went to the Air Force Academy.
After graduation from the Air Force Academy in 2004, I went on to join the United States Peace Corps and served in Zambia from 2006 - 2008. In Africa I lived in a hut in a small village where I taught preventive health care to Zambian villagers.
Since returning from the Peace Corps, I've tutored in various subjects to students of different ages, always enjoying myself!
Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions about availability!

pilot schools have even issued iPads to all students to asses the impact of technology integration on school performance.
I recently discovered a list of universities that are recording their lectures and posting them on iTunes. The subjects range from philosophy to economics to calculus. So far, I've checked out Stanford's Historical Jesus course as well as Harvard's Mini
Med School. I've found the lectures to be fascinating and am blown away that these very prestigious (very expensive!) schools are offering...
