Through a professional history dedicated to individualized education for students on all points of the learning spectrum, I have cultivated a deep understanding of the challenges facing students in a 21st century learning environment. Through customized instruction, flexible and tailored teaching and a student-centric approach, I look forward to helping you/your student excel through the methods that reflect your learning style, creating a road map to lasting success by addressing learning obstacles--and cultivating a love (or at least a strong liking) of learning during our time together!
As a marketing contractor representing nationwide curriculum developers, with four years' experience in educational nonprofits and museums and professional experience as a tutor, I have cultivated a deep familiarity with K-college curriculum, state standards, teaching methods and pedagogy.

HobbiesI have long been a patron of and participant in the arts, and enjoy playing guitar and singing in a local band. Like any Austinite, I adore our city's swimming holes, live music, movie theaters, and galleries. I have a cat, and a garden that doubles as his jungle, to great delight.
