About Nate

Greetings and thank you for your interest in having me as a possible tutor. My educational background and life experiences have developed in me a keen style of bringing clarity to complex subjects and the ability to relate to various learning styles that goes just beyond "head knowledge" and teaching degrees under present, newer models. This is not to say I oppose formal education...quite the contrary. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and a Master's Degree in Medicine with over 12 years experience as a Physician Assistant in Emergency Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, and Army Medicine. As an undergraduate, I was enrolled in my alma mater's tutoring program for classmates. While serving active duty in the Army, I taught classes to help many soldiers obtain EMT licensure, Associate Degree status, and even higher levels of learning. I also home-school my children and find great enjoyment in helping them excel past current standards and curriculum. One of my greatest joys is seeing that "Aha" moment of clarity over a confusing subject lesson.

Best expectation experiences I bring to the table are having served as a Captain in the Army, having been faithfully married 20 years, and being a father of 3 children. Some may wave these off as minor accomplishments of personal preference for choosing a career, luck in picking a spouse, good genes, etc. Beneficial as these can be, such a simplistic answer misses the mark . So what do I offer your child that would set them above center mass?

Persistence.

To quote Calvin Coolidge: "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

I know this to be true because I struggled as a "D-to-C" student in my youth, coming from a less than advantageous background. Yet I was persistent that I could make better grades. Upon entering college, my eyes were opened to a wide variety of teaching approaches that tapped into how I learned and what style was best for me. From there it was a matter of gaining momentum coupled with persistent hard work, making integrity choices that sustain one's sense of self-worth, and realizing I can be more if I choose to.

Now learning has become second-nature such that I can package information in ways that help others understand not just the material being taught but ways to learn as well.

If you want a personable tutor and are willing to meet in a safe Christian, family home environment of academia, then please consider me a definite option. You won't be employing merely a well-versed tutor but an advocate to set you up for success.
