I got my degree in computer science from the University of Minnesota with minors in math and astrophysics. Since then I've been working as a software engineer, primarily with Python and HTML/CSS/JavaScript. During college I enjoyed working as an algebra and geometry teaching assistant with the University of Minnesota Talented Youth Mathematics Program (after finishing the program myself), and since then I've continued to help math students after school and volunteered in coding workshops to teach kids about Python via computer-generated drawings and Minecraft modding.

For me, teaching and tutoring are how I like to share subjects I'm experienced in and passionate about (especially computer skills, Python, and math) with others. I try to convey the principles and thought process that are the basis of my own understanding of the subject, not just rules to follow or things to memorize. Being able to explain your answer is even more important than simply getting it right! My tutoring style is personalized, with plenty of examples and frequent knowledge checks to ensure I and my student(s) are in sync. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, skiing, woodworking, reading, and vacationing to Lake Superior.
