Awarded Wyzant.com's Top 50 Tutor Award for 2013. I've been successfully helping students learn a wide variety of subjects for over 15 years. I'm a friendly, calm individual who is good at observing what it is you're struggling with. My style is to identify your weak points by watching you work through problems, to demonstrate a technique that can help you perform better, and then to help you implement the technique to successfully solve similar problems.

At age 16 I coached my fellow students in history, math, and theater. My friends and I won the state History Fair and participated in the national competition in Washington DC. Later I was awarded an acting scholarship to three different universities. Attended BYU where I worked as a statistics teaching assistant while studying economics. Became a mentor/tutor to 160 nontraditional students completing a statistics course online. Finished my undergrad as the Assistant for Teaching Assistant Development for the entire campus.

After undergrad I scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT and successfully taught GMAT courses for the next 3 years. Helped individuals with the math sections of the GRE, SAT, and ACT. Awarded a full tuition scholarship for graduate work in Business Administration at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. At the end of the first year my peers gave me the Mason Gold Standard Award which is a recognition of one who unselfishly contributes to the academic achievement of others through mentoring. Graduated with a focus in Finance and passed the CFA Level 1 exam. Also passed the GACE Mathematics 022, 023 exams.

I love helping students overcome their stumbling blocks and I look forward to helping you overcome yours in the coming months!
