I have taught a few upper division courses, but the majority of my professional work has been teaching introductory geology courses.

I have 10 years experience as a geology instructor at universities and community colleges in the pacific northwest of the United States. I have taught a few upper division courses, but the majority of my professional work has been teaching introductory geology courses. During this time, I have taught hundreds of students the joys of geology. Most importantly, I focus on establishing an overall framework of basic geological knowledge, onto which can be related the more detailed aspects of the discipline.

I began teaching geology classes shortly after I received my Masters, and I continued teaching both during, and after, my doctoral (PhD) studies. I enjoy teaching and I have a real love for the material. I continue to teach as an adjunct (non-tenured track) as this gives me the freedom to live a fulfilling life. During my time as an instructor, I have helped students of all levels and abilities to better master the material and achieve their personal academic ambitions.

I have more than 10 years experience studying, and teaching, geology. Although my research focuses on how volcanoes relate to earth's moving tectonic plates, I have a broad base of geologic knowledge. My research brought me to the Cascade volcanoes and the Andes volcanoes of south America.

I would enjoy working with you as a tutor. I have an upbeat, laid-back style that does not skimp on substance. I have a strong appreciation for students in all situations and from all backgrounds and believe that education can unite us all. I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your educational goals. Contact me and see if my tutoring is the right fit for you.
