I provide custom tutoring in a variety of areas from elementary math and reading to geometry and history. While I am a historian by trade I am an engineer at heart. I have learned that it is easier to adapt my teaching to the needs of students rather than attempt to make them learn in a way which might be contrary to their learning style. I developed this method while an instructor in the Navy and refined it as an elementary school tutor. I love watching students get excited when it finally clicks and they grasp the fun of learning.
I have an amazing wife, who is also a tutor with WyzAnt. And, we also have two children, Nathan and Deborah. I was an engineer for the Navy and honorably separated in 2008. I received my B.A. degree in History from Geneva College in December of 2012 (summa cum laude with research honors). I am currently a graduate student at Trinity International University working on a masters of Church History.
While in the Navy I taught a variety of courses as part of the ship's training department. I have taught numerous classes at various church congregations. I have tutored undergraduate students formally and informally in a variety of subjects ranging from college algebra, chemistry, computer science, and natural science to American and non western history. I also tutored and mentored elementary and middle school students at an after school program for a number of years.
My adaptive teaching style is combined with a solid foundational understanding of the subjects I tutor. I will never come unprepared and I will always be ready to help. I take my students learning seriously and value feedback.
