"Hello!

Nice to meet you! Things you need to know about me: I have a passion for learning about the world around me, and I absolutely love to help others gain a similar understanding and fan that spark which lives in all of us. I have a B.S. in mathematics from UH-Clear Lake, and after six years at a government agency and the last three years as an actuary with a major accounting firm, I have recently decided to return to Texas in order to attend graduate school for a PhD in Physics. I am located off of Saturn and Gemini near the Space Center.

I have privately tutored in many subjects, including but not limited to everything from basic fractions to differential equations, abstract algebra, and complex analysis in math, as well as basic undergraduate physics, chemistry, actuarial and computer science, and even music, as I play piano, violin, and am currently learning to sing. I have published in a math journal with undergraduate research, but I also take great pride in my ability to connect with students of all backgrounds and skill sets. I do not adhere to the notion that some people are "better" at math than others; in my experience, the largest stumbling block for students is almost invariably the sad and incorrect notion that math is somehow just "too hard" for them, that they simply are not suited for the subject. My biggest joy is seeing the light in a student's eyes when they realize that it is in fact not "too hard," and that they are more than capable, provided someone takes the time to actually learn where their specific gaps in understanding lie and help work with them to figure out the best way to fill them in. I believe the best teachers cater their teaching specifically to the student, which is why I prefer one-on-one teaching to any other form, giving or receiving.

I look forward to working with you! Best of luck in all endeavors." less...
