I recently finished my studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I live, along with my wife and 8-year-old daughter, in Van Alstyne, Texas - a small town just north of McKinney. My wife is a Tennis Pro coaching many handfuls of students both privately and in groups. I have traveled with my family quite a bit, both in the United States and abroad. I have visited nearly every state in the United States, except distant states like Hawaii and Alaska. Oh, wait - we just visited Alaska for the first time this summer! I even lived a few years with my family in Mexico. My siblings and I had a great opportunity to see much of the world.
My wife is from abroad, too - Cape Town, South Africa. We met here in Texas, but we went to Cape Town to be married. We lived there for some time, until shortly after our daughter was born. The sights in that part of Africa are amazing.
In my free time, I enjoy either picking up my guitar or sitting down at the piano, though I am definitely better with the guitar.
I have many years of experience as a tutor, working at various universities, companies, and even privately. I provide tutoring in subjects ranging from elementary math to Calculus, earth science to chemistry, grammar to essay writing, and foreign languages like French and Spanish. I specialize in tutoring math and science. I am equally as helpful in language studies. I have a great grasp of English, having spent many years as an ESL instructor. I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in French. I am always inundated with students hoping to prepare for and improve scores on PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GED.
I enjoy what I do, especially having the satisfaction of helping others achieve success in academics. My method is geared towards understanding of the material, rather than just rote completion of homework. This is, as the story goes, like "teaching the man to fish." While it may sound cliché, this goes a long way in helping students to achieve true success in their studies.
