I built my first computer 286/12Hz when I was 12 and kept on the field. My first 'real' job after High School was with a Computer Tech Support Company. After that, I have been around a multitude of computer systems in the Air Force ranging from simple DOS style interfaces to complex SQL/Oracle databases. Whatever you need help with on the computer, I can figure out a way to explain it to you.
I have an extensive history of math and love the subject (especially geometry). I have taken many classes including calculus and qualitative statistics, so I know we can get you solving the proofs in no time.

Passed TeXes Certification for English, Language Arts and Reading. I'm getting my own class room next year to teach and finish my certification. Finally, I struggled as a reader so I am sympathetic and have coping methods to share.
I have had some of the 'most stressful' jobs in the world. The key to all of them, just like studying, is to stay organized and to make a plan. I can help you take a busy schedule and implement some techniques to help control the chaos preventing you from studying. Along the way, I'll help you figure out what style of learner you are and how you can adapt any professor to your needs.
I was raised on maps. My family and I crossed from east coast to west coast and back four times before I was 13 and my job was to hold the map. This was of course before the days of the bouncing blue dot and google maps. I also honed this skill through many years of practice in search and rescue training and land navigation courses. If you are having any problems with geography, I can teach you how to read the map and the people of the region.
