In my life I've been able to develop skill in a range of areas (such as mathematics, sports and music), and I enjoy using my abilities to help others. I scored a perfect 1600 on the SAT in high school and went on to graduate cum laude from Rice University, a national top 20 school, with a degree in math. I later worked as a designer of mathematics-based software and editor/publisher of textbooks, taking on a second job as a tutor in my spare time. After 7 years on active duty in the military,...
In my life I've been able to develop skill in a range of areas (such as mathematics, sports and music), and I enjoy using my abilities to help others. I scored a perfect 1600 on the SAT in high school and went on to graduate cum laude from Rice University, a national top 20 school, with a degree in math. I later worked as a designer of mathematics-based software and editor/publisher of textbooks, taking on a second job as a tutor in my spare time. After 7 years on active duty in the military, I've begun working in the educational field again. I now have over a year of experience tutoring in the Savannah area, and August marked the start of my employment as a math teacher at the prestigious Savannah Country Day School. Test prep, Algebra, Calculus and other disciplines are well within my realm of expertise.
Outside of my mathematical ability, I've been playing tennis since a very early age (my parents are tennis teachers) and competed in tournaments throughout my childhood and teenage years, obtaining a top 100 national ranking. I lettered in tennis at Rice, and during the summers between my college years I instructed tennis at a well-regarded sports camp in Atlanta. More recently, I served as the volunteer assistant coach for the Clovis (NM) High School boys' and girls' tennis teams. Growing up I was also an accomplished piano and organ player, taking lessons for 10 years and playing in recitals regularly. I've continued to play piano and keyboard as an adult, focusing more on improvisational and "by ear" styles but retaining a strong music reading skill.
