In the early 2000s I spent two years as an aide in a Math and Science Alternative Education setting. During this time I assisted students with everything from basic math skills to algebra 1. The following year I took a position teaching mainstream math, including algebra 1 and geometry. Since then I have worked as a carpenter, a bookkeeper and in the printing industry. All these positions required me to apply my math skills in the real world. Two years ago I went back to school and became certified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I now help people, not only improve their diet, but also the overall quality of their lives.
I have always found math to be very logical and systematic...because it is! It is all a matter of breaking down the steps/formulas and determining which numbers go where. I am also a big believer of REALLY knowing the skill sets that preceded your current mathematics level. For example, you can't be expected to do algebra if you can't add/subtract/multiple/divide. Computers and calculators are great tools, but I do not feel they should be solely relied on to do the "work"...that is what the greatest computer of all, your brain, is for!
My approach to nutrition is from a whole foods, ancestral perspective. I believe things such as the "food pyramid" have lead us astray, and could very well be the cause of many of our current health crisis. I have seen amazing results, in myself and my clients, by cutting out processed foods and returning to a whole foods diet.
I look forward to working with you to reach your mathematical and/or nutritional science goals! In the early 2000s I spent two years as an aide in a Math and Science Alternative Education setting.

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.
In June of 2013 I graduated from a 9 month certification program, in Nutrition, offered by the Nutritional Therapy Association. NTA is a independent vocational institution based out of Washington state. Since graduation I have worked with clients one-on-one and given several dozen group talks on the subject of whole foods nutrition. My philosophy is based on healing systems, rather than chasing symptoms.
