About Otha

I enjoy helping students acquire new skills in various subjects, often by thinking outside the box, or from a different viewpoint. We are all individuals and we all have different styles of learning. I have taught topics from elementary school to military students in the operation and maintenance of shipboard systems. I have also taught volunteers to build houses with Habitat for Humanity in my community. I have taught all of my new co-workers and supervisors in the Millworks Department at Home Depot the correct way to make sure the customer gets the right product the first time.

My educational background consists of an Associate of Arts in Technology Instruction from the University of Phoenix, a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting with a minor in Electronics from Wayland Baptist University, a Master's in Business Administration from Wayland Baptist University and I have defended my Doctoral degree from Texas Tech University through the College of Architecture. My dissertation is titled "Maximizing Energy Efficiency in Low-Income Housing." I was able to utilize the different iterations of the Habitat homes I supervised to test my theories concerning building homes that reduced energy efficiency without sacrificing quality or the amenities that people enjoy having in their homes.

I have helped many students understand geometry by showing how the abstract formulas can be applied to a real-life problem, taking the concept out of the textbook and wrapping it around an issue in the real world.
