My path to education has been an interesting one and gives me a unique perspective that helps me find different ways to relate to the students as well as giving me more ways to relate difficult subject matter in a way the student can grasp. I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying architecture, but did not go on to the Master's program. During my time at Nebraska, I worked as a Engineering Mechanics Instructional Laboratory tutor at the high recommendation of my Statics professor and tutored for Statics for Builders and Strengths of Materials. This position allowed me to work with architects, construction managers, and engineers.
Without a Master's degree in Architecture it was very difficult to find a job in my subject field, so I started working in the wind industry. I quickly became a go-to resource and was placed in charge of training new employees. After having several jobs in this field relocate and being told how well suited I would be in education, I started to work in the school system.
I am currently employed in an alternative setting IV behavior high school. I enjoy the varied backgrounds of the students we receive as well as the flexibility to teach all subjects to all students. In addition to the academic side, I have experience on the behavioral side and I am currently Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) certified.
My areas of expertise focus on the math and applied sciences particularly algebra, engineering and physics, but I am well versed in Grammar, English, Composition, Economics, Sciences, and some experience in French.
I enjoy problem solving and I use problem solving techniques to help my students come up with a logical method to find the correct answer. I understand that there are multiple ways that a problem can be solved and certain methods work better for certain students. I also strive to introduce real world examples to help justify the student's work and often these examples cause the student to think about a problem in new ways.
I have a flexible schedule and am in this field for the joy of learning, so allow me to help unlock a subject and perhaps the subject that is the most hated, will be the subject that becomes the most loved.

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 worked as a tutor for Engineering Mechanics - Statics and Engineering Mechanics - Strengths of Materials from 2004 to 2006 while I was enrolled at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
