I'm a graduate of the Air Force Academy with a bachelor of science degree, majoring in both Astronautics and Engineering Science. I worked professionally as an engineer for more than 20 years in a number of different capacities including satellite launch and early orbit operations, computer programming, computer administration, digital communications, and relational database design and administration. For many years I've enjoyed volunteering as a youth leader, mentor and teacher. I find great satisfaction in ENABLING the student to understand concepts and reduce problems to simple terms.

I tailor my teaching style to the needs and strengths of the student by using everyday language and, whenever possible, examples based on the student's life experiences, natural abilities and interests. I often use physical objects, like puzzles, to enhance what could otherwise be very dry and tedious subjects. My goal is not just to teach, but have the student ENJOY the learning experience!
