I am a former high school physics and algebra teacher aiming to use my teaching experience to help students be their very best at mastering the material. Having spent 23 years in the US Navy's nuclear submarine propulsion program, I have a wealth of practical experience and can easily provide real world applications for the theoretical subject matter. Because of this experience I can readily answer the oft heard student question "when are we going to use this stuff?" I enjoy helping people in general and I get no greater joy than to help young people succeed in their scholastic endeavors and help them achieve their goals and desires.
Previous military and engineering experience I can provide practical examples, provide detailed understanding and show the reasons for the mathematical methods.
