Colorado School of Mines at Golden
Teaching others has always been a part of my life. I have tutored in a number of settings since I was in high school. After graduating from the Colorado School of Mines where I majored in Electrical Engineering and minored in Economics, I worked as a computer programmer for IBM for seven years. During this time, I spent weekends volunteering my time tutoring youths at my church. After starting my own business, I left IBM and began a successful property management service which I have managed since 1999. During this time I worked as a part-time substitute teacher for local school districts in Missouri and Iowa. I have continued my volunteer tutoring in Texas up to the present which I enjoy very much.
I work well with young ones and have a simple and creative teaching method which can make seemingly complicated subjects easy to understand. I am a patient tutor, yet I push my students to get to a level of proficiency that they may not have believed they could achieve.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught k-6th as a substitute teacher for over 12 years now. I specialize in helping k-6th students understand seemingly difficult subjects such as math, science, and English in an easy-to-understand way. I currently substitute teach in my local school district and have years of experience teaching students in the k-6th grades.
I have tutored students for over 20 years in a variety of subjects, making a seemingly difficult subject easier by approaching it in a direct, simple way. Study skills are an important part of my teaching which can build confidence in a student, improve their efficiency, helping them make good decisions and assisting them in becoming an independent learner.
