I have a Bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I have about a year of straight tutoring experience through the University work program. I have been working with students/children since 2004. First, it was through the YMCA working in after school programs, which included tutoring, mentoring, and directing after school activities with elementary and middle school aged kids. For three years I worked at a small town high school as a football coach, leading young men and teaching them the fun and life lessons football can give. As you would expect, I am well-versed in chemistry courses and several other science courses. Math is not my strongest area, but I am very much able to relate concepts and problem solving skills to students as needed. I relate very well with children and older students. My teaching style is direct yet patient. I hold the student to do their work, but I do not get inpatient if a student is slow to learn a concept. If the student doesn't understand something, I am not showing it in a way they can understand it. I then change the way I am presenting the information so that the student understands it. Adaptation is a very big part of my teaching style.

Football

I have been playing football since I was 7 years old (about 15 yrs). I have coached football teams ranging from YMCA flag football youth teams, youth tackle football leagues, and for the last two years I have coached on a high school football team going from a volunteer helper to the offensive coordinator this year. I am very well versed in several different types of offenses from the single wing to the spread option. I am also very competent on the defensive side of the ball. I know and use football jargon when it comes to positions, plays, routes, etc. I can speak intelligently about pretty much any subject when it comes to football. If you have any questions or in need of help in any area of football, I am more than able to handle any requests.
