I've been blessed to be a medical doctor in Family Practice for nearly twenty years. Currently serving in a part-time position, my time is freed up to pursue this passion I have for teaching and tutoring. The son of a high school teacher and principal, I have seen both richly demonstrated, as well as personally navigated many years of education and testing in the path to obtaining an MD.

My experience includes having given countless interactive talks on health and disease to community groups, organizations, Christian ministries, small groups, and individuals. In holding an MA in Bioethics, I have delivered practical lectures and talks to college classes, medical residencies, and medical organizations. Also, I have three decades worth of experience in parachurch and church small and large group leading and facilitating, including Bible study, book review, worldview discussion, and sermons.

I've naturally excelled in mathematics, having a mind that automatically thinks analytically, along with having an ability to communicate concepts and methods in an understandable way. I have three children that I have successfully tutored along in their education (the oldest has recenlty graduated as her high school valedictorian), and math is #1 in their requests.

I have had rigorous teaching and training in the life sciences, and frequently encounter them in my medical practice and required continued education. This keeps them fresh and active in my experience with anatomy, biology, and physiology, along with the process of communicating concepts and processes to patients and students.

I look forward to having you contact me to learn more and schedule lessons...
