I love learning, and I want to make your learning experience as fun and easy as possible. A lot of teachers rely on repetition and boring busywork, but I believe that learning should be fun and interesting. Creativity is key, even for "uncreative" subjects like Math.

I'm a fun guy. I graduated from Carthage College in 2010 with a degree in Computer Science and a minor in Japanese. I spent my last semester abroad in Japan a tutored English while I was there. When I came home, I started fixing computers and tutoring high school students for a living. I'm also writing a fantasy book called Tales of Eudo the Wanderer, and I'm working on an animation project that teaches Japanese. I'm a little different from most tutors.

Test my skills with a no-risk First Hour. If you don't like me, I'll refund your money and we'll both go our separate ways. But I'm willing to bet that I can help with nearly any academic problem you might have.
