#### Education

Sierra College - BS, Mechanical Engineering#### Experience

I served nine years of active duty in the United States Navy, including five years on nuclear submarines as a nuclear machinist mate and three years instructing at a nuclear field-A school. After this, I enrolled at Sierra College to earn my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree, while minoring in math. While instructing in the Navy, I taught 330 students and that made me realize how much I enjoy helping others to grasp concepts. As a result, I now tutor other students in the subjects that I enjoy the most, such as calculus, physics, trigonometry, and algebra. My teaching experience also covers things like thermodynamics, mechanical system design, heat transfer, and air conditioning, so I can assist students to understand those concepts as well. When tutoring, I tend to help the student construct a foundation of understanding and critical thinking that we can build upon as we work through the material. This foundation can be applied to any academic discipline, and even into employment. I believe that tutors should customize their sessions to match the student's curriculum, so that is what I do each and every time. When I'm not teaching or studying, I enjoy playing golf, skiing, and wake-boarding.#### Hobbies
