I have a strong understanding of science and math, and I love to share interesting ideas. I teach with patience and thoughtful communication.
I studied computer science in college, with additional coursework in biology, physics, chemistry, anatomy and physiology. After graduation I worked as a technical writer and programmer for several years. I enjoy writing, editing, and illustrating, and I have a strong general understanding of computers, how they work, and how to make them work.
In addition to my educational background, I've traveled extensively in India and southeast Asia, I've taught acrobatics and yoga, and I love to draw and paint.
As a teacher, I proceed systematically, first identifying those concepts that aren't yet understood, and then working with patience and diligence, from the ground up, until the student really understands the important concepts and techniques. I don't waste time. I focus on the task at hand because I love to see it when understanding begins.
