Thank you for viewing my profile! I was in the top 3% of my class at West Point, graduating from the United States Military Academy in 1992 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I earned a masters in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2002, then taught at West Point for three years. As a professor in the Civil & Mechanical Engineering Department, I primarily taught fluid mechanics, but also statics and dynamics as well as astrodynamics. I returned to Georgia Tech for the Aerospace Engineering PhD Program, and have completed all requirements short of my dissertation. Having just retired from the Army, I am excited to tutor high school students in math and science. My love of teaching began as a student, when I often found myself tutoring classmates and friends. The opportunity to teach at West Point enabled me to sharpen my teaching techniques, particularly in one-on-one settings outside of class. As a father of three, with my youngest a high school sophomore, I've been able to maintain proficiency as a tutor as well as familiarity with the high school curriculum.

In math, I can cover subjects from pre-algebra through calculus as well as geometry and probability & statistics. In science, I can cover physics and chemistry. With math and science, there is always a problem-solving process. I strive to ensure my students understand each step in any given process, starting with problem recognition. Oftentimes, students will read a problem and will not recognize what process to apply, and thus are either stuck or attempt to apply the wrong process. Once a student understands what process to apply and exactly how to apply it, I believe in repetition until not only is the student proficient but confident. Beyond any particular subject, I can share what I think is important to prepare a high school student for admission to and success at college.

For tutoring lessons, it is best when the student identifies challenging subject areas and homework sets when we schedule the lesson, enabling me t
