Boise State University (Geosciences)
I currently work at RJ Lee Group in Monroeville, PA a consulting laboratory as a geologist/petrographer. Where I have extensive experience analyzing a verity of geologic samples through polarize light microscopy, SEM EDS, and Raman spectroscopy. I’ve spent the last 3.5 years mastering the dying skill of optical mineralogy characterizing samples from Asia, Europe, South America, and North America.
I also look at geologic samples through Raman spectroscopy to characterize minerals and thermal maturity of shale samples. Outside of the lab I’ve collect soil and bark samples while setting up sampling equipment in remote regions of the northwest and investigated mines in Brazil. My experience also extends into GIS where I make maps for legal cases to add a large a ray of data to spatial relations, through the QGIS suite.
I graduated from Boise State University with a B.S. in Geosciences in 2012, although my back ground is in geoscience I have a good foundation in mathematics and geophysics to include the following courses; Multivariable Vector Calculus (Math 270), Differential Equations (MATH 333), Applied Geophysics (GEOPH 305), Physics of the Earth (GEOPH 300), Tectonics (GEOS 541), Volcanology (GEOS 460), Structural Geology (GEOS 314), Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology (GEOS 324), Petrography (GEOS 345), Sedimentology and Stratigraphy (GEOS 315), Geomorphology (GEOS 313), Geochemistry (GEOS 425), and Intro to ArcGIS (GEOS 360).
I’ve tutored from middle school to college level and my approach is simple, complex ideas are built from simple ideas. And take it from someone who struggled through math in high school its not easy seeing the basic principles, and I wish instead of being taught through memorization I was taught to focus on the building blocks and how to use them.

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.
