I love science, especially the multidisciplinary nature of earth sciences. I also have a passion for English and writing.
I currently work as a Geologist for an engineering consulting firm in the Western suburbs.
My enthusiasm, patience, and knowledge of how subjects are practically applied will serve to help students from a wide range of ability levels.
Effective communication in any medium is very important to me. Additionally, I feel the best, most exciting, and most useful knowledge is that which is understood in the big picture - it is this that I would work to instill in students along with the basic lesson being taught.
My most recent student that I tutored for the ACT increased his composite score by six points. With patience and a good attitude, am confident that I can help even the most struggling student raise their score.
HobbiesI attended UW-Madison on Evans Scholarship, and continue to stay active in the Western Golf Association/ Evans Scholars Foundation.
I spend my free time reading, running, spending time with my girlfriend and nieces and nephew, and hanging out with my dogs, Zelda and Dottie.
