I have a B.S. in civil engineering from Valparaiso University. I am currently a medical student at the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Il, and I am a PGA-certified golf instructor. I was consistently in the top 10% of my class during high school. I was a member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and president of my pledge class, as well as a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society for academic excellence. My love of learning and teaching stems from my family – for example, my father is a PhD in engineering and was a professor at Valparaiso University.
I am committed to helping others increase their knowledge of math and the sciences, especially at the elementary, high school, and early college levels. I am an excellent teacher – I explain complex subject matter clearly and in steps tailored for each of my students’ learning styles, abilities, preferences, and personalities. Sometimes math and science can be intimidating – I break it down into simple steps to build confidence as well as skill. I also use relaxation, focus, and memory techniques to help people learn and retain information. I use a custom approach for each of my students.
After working as an engineer for a few years, I then used those skills in the world of professional sports, when I founded the Bohlmann Golf School. I taught and coached golf enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels for their overall mind-body balance and performance. My students included autistic children and the physically disabled.
I currently tutor English via Skype for a friend who lives in Vietnam. This friend is also my Hapkido Grandmaster from whom I earned my Black Belt. I have an international family and diverse global experiences, which I bring to my teaching and to my understanding of my students. I hope you will call me for help with all your learning challenges, and we will tackle them together!
