I have been tutoring or teaching for slightly more than 19 years. Previously I have tutored or taught PSAT
, and Latin
, all math
through introductory calculus
, an introduction to Thomistic Metaphysics, European history
, and Christology. I attended Plan II at the University of Texas at Austin and have a BA in Spanish Literature
and a BS in Mathematics
from the same University of Texas. I have done work in philosophy
and Latin at the University of Dallas. I have an MA in Sacred Theology from Ave Maria University and am a PhD candidate in Historical Theology at Catholic University of America, where I am very slowly writing
a dissertation on tradition in the thought of Melchior Cano, O.P. My scores on relevant standardized tests are excellent. I have taught at three different high schools in Texas and Wisconsin and one college.
I am interested in crafting with my pupils (and their parents as the case may be) a reasonable plan to achieve their goals; please note that some goals are really just wishes, and there might be no reasonable plan to achieve such a goal. In that case, I would work with student to develop a more reasonable goal. In any case, I am demanding of my pupils but on my part give the necessary effort in return. In addition to competency, I try to provide good example to my pupils. Sometimes a tutor/pupil relationship does not work, and if I were to determine that I am not the best one to help you, I would end our relationship so that you do not waste your money and are able to get the assistance for which you are looking. I work best with students 14 and up but have tutored as young as 10.
I am willing to send a more detailed résumé to parties who have expressed interest in working with me. I am not trained to work with students who have anything beyond a very mild learning disability. If your child has such, it would be to your benefit find another tutor. Finally, I do not schedule any session on Sunday, and a minimum session is one hour; sessions will not be scheduled for less than one hour, and at least one hour will always be charged.
