About me: I'm originally from Texas, and now live in Portland, Oregon. I love Portland. It is a beautiful city that has the best of both urban and small town life.

I'm passionate about sustainability, the built environment, and community development. I spend a lot of time thinking about and contributing to projects looking to make the world big enough for us all.

For fun, I like reading science fiction, dancing, and making up silly stories with my girlfriend.

Experience: I have over a decade of tutoring experience. While at Harvard, studying Psychology & Philosophy, I helped students in high school and those just entering college grapple with subjects ranging from English Grammar and Literature Essay Writing, to Biology, Political Science and Government, Psychology, and understanding Scientific Principles and Methodologies. In 2010, I started tutoring online so I could offer my services to a broader, global audience.

My focus as a tutor is to help students develop the capabilities necessary for exemplary academic achievement and success in work and life. I do this by taking a student-centered educational approach to tutoring. Student centered educational experiences are designed to encourage and help students to take learning into their own hands. These approaches put student’s needs above all others. Placing the focus on the student requires me to be able to determine and adapt to students’ interests, learning styles, motivations, and backgrounds. These approaches also require me, as a tutor, to act as a facilitator, treating students as active, collaborating participants in the learning process, rather than passive recipients. Or, in other words, rather than teaching students what they should know, I teach skills they can use to learn on their own.

I am able to tutor students all the way from K-12 to Graduate school in a wide range of subjects ranging that include: English, Essay Writing, Reading Basic Math, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, Resume Writing, Research Papers, Biology, Science, Grammar and Mechanics, Internet Navigation, Art History, Literature, and Microsoft Word, Excel, and Office.

While tutoring at, I've maintained an average student rating of 4.63 out of 5.
