Howdy eh! As a child, I moved extensively among the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica. I believe it was during that period of my life that I developed a desire to help people reach their destination. Many folks/relatives helped our family during our travels.

After taking a job as an Arthur Ashe-National Junior Tennis League instructor for the city of Carrollton and in conjunction with with my love for the sciences it was then that I began my training and education as a high school science teacher and tennis coach. I wanted to help students reach their knowledge/comprehension destination in the sciences and tennis.

I have taught Physics I, Chemistry I, Pre-AP Physics/Chemistry, IPC and been a varsity tennis coach.

I have a high standard when it comes to teaching/learning in the classroom. My students have earned a #1 or #2 ranking for standardized tests in Physics I and Chemistry I in the districts for which I have worked.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your destination.
