"My experience in tutoring began in 2006, when I tutored my classmates through our Physics and Calculus 1 courses. Ever since, I have been tutoring, giving me 14 years of experience. While at Lamar University, I earned a Bachelors in Physics (2015) and a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering (2015).

This year, I have transitioned to teaching only online, and that has greatly freed up my time to pursue many of my passions, including one-on-one tutoring.

I break down hard problems and connect them with real world situations to make learning the most abstract things feel natural and like home. I have had many success stories and am told quite often that I tutor better than the teachers or professors assigned to the class.
