About Me

Experience Summary

As a student I was always helping my friends and brothers with their school work, especially math. While in graduate school working on my Masters degree I tutored for the athletic department and even tutored some of my classmates who were college professors working on their PhD's. I have been a college teacher for more than 5 years and started doing private tutoring over 2 years ago.

Teaching Style

Teaching style varies by student and by subject, and even varies according to my level of skill in the subject matter. I have been told that I make things that are confusing or hard to understand easy, and I love that 'I see' look in a student's eyes.

My Hobbies

I love trivia games and like pretty much any competitive game, especially chess, spades, and Texas Hold'em. I am a big Texas Tech Red Raider athletics fan especially football, basketball and baseball.

Other Comments

I charge $35 for most hour sessions but am willing to negotiate for regularly scheduled lessons, for longer lessons, and for any lesson you might feel was not worth the money to you.

Subject Commentary

Accounting This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Experienced
I have taught and tutored college level basic accounting and have worked with some intermediate level students as well.
Economics This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Experienced
I have 12 hours of Economics at Texas Tech, have 3 years experience teaching Economics at the college level and another 2 years experience tutoring Economics. I would say I'm expert at the lower level classes in Micro and Macro and have some experience with higher level classes. I attend seminars at the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech and receive several newsletters on Economics on a regular basis.
