I am a chiropractor who enjoys tutoring and working with young students. I am a graduate of Edgewood College and Palmer College of Chiropractic. I love to play soccer, run and watch almost any sport. When not working I can often be found watching sports or playing soccer. While working with students my goal is to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves. I help them achieve these goals by tailoring my teaching/tutoring styles to best fit their learning style. Everyone learns and retains information differently and I strive to find out how each of my students learns the best and implement that into my sessions. At the end of the day my goal is to make learning fun and for my students to learn and feel good about themselves. I tutor biology, anatomy, general science, microbiology, biochemistry, math and reading.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to find the learning method that works best for my student and then use that to help them learn the material. I also try to make learning fun and relate topics to things that my students are interested in.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session with a student, I like to get to know them on both a personal and school level. I like to learn about not only what they are learning and struggling with in school but also what their hobbies are and what interests they have. I like to spend the first session as an overview as well to get an idea of what sort of help the student needs as well as their strengths and weaknesses.
