Bio

As a formal educator, I taught Advanced Placement (and International Baccalaureate) Physics in Arizona for six years, taught two years of junior high physical science, and was a substitute teacher for three years while earning my teaching certificate. I spent two years studying physics and mechanical engineering at the graduate level at Arizona State University, as well as over 40 hours in graduate level secondary school education topics specializing in physics and math education.

As a formal educator, I taught Advanced Placement (and International Baccalaureate) Physics in Arizona for six years, taught two years of junior high physical science, and was a substitute teacher for three years while earning my teaching certificate. I spent two years studying physics and mechanical engineering at the graduate level at Arizona State University, as well as over 40 hours in graduate level secondary school education topics specializing in physics and math education. Though my teaching certificate in Arizona has expired, I was certified to teach Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. In addition to formal education, I have done private tutoring off and on ever since my junior year in college.

Currently, I am working as a mechanical engineer in the nuclear power industry (a field in which I have over 11 years of experience).

I tend to use a Socratic questioning approach to tutoring, particularly in topics where the student has had instruction but may not feel confident yet. In addition, I work with students to develop a problem-solving mind set regardless of which specific topic we may be covering. Above all, I always try to make the learning experience fun!

Mechanical Engineering

I have a BS in engineering from the US Merchant Marine Academy (my major was Marine Engineering, but the course work is very similar to mechanical engineering with an emphasis on shipboard propulsion and power generation). I also have completed two years of graduate school at Arizona State University in mechanical engineering. I have worked for 11 years in the nuclear power industry as a mechanical engineer. I have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and registered as an Engineer-in-Training in Arizona as of 2001.
