I am an AFJROTC high school teacher and three-time Outstanding Instructor Award winner with 10 years in the classroom teaching aerospace science, math, communications and leadership. I am also an Admission Liaison Officer for the prestigious Air Force Academy and prepare and evaluate candidates for appointment. I pride myself on helping young people enjoy learning while they grow into young adults. In order to ensure that my students learn, I tailor my approach to their individual learning styles. It's not enough just to teach a subject without relating it to a student's life and making it fun. Most importantly, the process of learning should not only improve academic performance, but instill self-esteem and self-confidence.

I am a master educator as evidenced by my selection as three-time outstanding instructor of the year. I teach aerospace science (aviation, astronomy, meteorology, physics, and physiology), leadership education (management, communications, creative and technical writing, life skills and survival training) and physical fitness to high school students. I also am a mentor and coach for several academic and athletic extracurricular activities to include: academic bowl (ACT/SAT, current events, JROTC subjects), computer network security, space satellite mission planning, rocketry, multicopter, drill and physical fitness.

If you have an any questions or suggestions, please let me know. I will work tirelessly with students and parents/guardians to ensure the best learning experience for all.

I have a bachelors in civil engineering and have a strong math background. My greatest strength is to be able to demystify math and relate it to a student's life in a meaningful way.

I grew up in a bilingual family and was a French linguist and translator in the military. I love the French language, culture and cuisine, and bring this passion into my teaching.

After over 20 years as an Air Force officer and 10 years as an AFJROTC high school instructor, I have mastered public speaking, all types of

The Why and not just the How

Todd focuses on scaling your method of self-assessment for career goals. His delivery method is straight to the point for efficiency yet he still allows room for discussion. He is fair and makes sure your time is utilized for learning relevant details.

Knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful tutor

Really enjoyed my lesson with Todd - he took time to prepare for it in advance and worked with me on French pronunciation. Very friendly throughout the lesson.
