Hello, to start, I love teaching. I've been a teacher in some fashion for nearly 8 years now, both while in the military and after graduating college. While going to school, I was a part time tutor at Sylvan Learning Center for all levels of Math. I also instructed a few SAT prep courses while at these locations.

After graduating Texas Tech University with a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and English, and a Master's in Classical Studies, I went on to teach middle school mathematics at a small private school in Kerrville, Texas. I am also a fully certified teacher for Mathematics Grades 4-8 and General Education for Kindergarten through 6th Grade.
