I tutor because I love science and math, I'm good at solving problems, and I enjoy sharing interesting ideas.
I studied computer science in college, with additional coursework in biology, physics, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and linguistics. After graduation I worked as a technical writer and computer programmer for eight years. I enjoy writing, editing, and illustrating, and I have a deep understanding of computers, how they work, and how to make them work.
In addition to my education I've traveled extensively in India and southeast Asia, I get out to the local trails with my young boy whenever I can, and I draw and paint from life.
As a teacher, I identify the concepts and techniques that aren't yet understood, and I work with diligence until the student really truly gets it. I teach with patience and thought, but I don't waste time. I focus on the task at hand because I love it when understanding begins.
