About Summer

I really enjoy individual mentoring which is more than just tutoring of students. Mentoring involves guiding them in the current material and giving them additional tools to use in the future. I love to watch people learn and enjoy use of a variety of techniques to help accomplish their goals. I focus on the strength of the individual and feel that everyone has the potential to learn as long as they have the right tools. Not everyone learns the same so together we can identify the students learning style allowing them to adapt to courses requirements.

I have 19 years of tutoring and mentoring experience for elementary, middle school, high school, college and graduate student in all levels of Math and Science.

Currently, I am an instructor at UT Southwestern Medical Center and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Brookhaven College.
