...I am one class shy of a minor in math. I have taught mathematical methods for physics - a course which is highly intensive on differential equations. Differential equations are also widely used in graduate physics courses which I took for my PhD.

...Last year, I tutored a student through the entirety of his high school precalculus and trigonometry class. Precalculus contains several hard and fast rules, yet it is also the first math class many students encounter where multiple, drawn-out pathways to a solution may present themselves. If you like puzzles, you might enjoy precalculus more that you expect.

...I motivate my students by getting involved directly such as a lesson on hydraulic pressure had them team up to attempt to life me off the ground and compare it to using a hydraulic jack to do the same experiment. They couldn't wait to "lift the teacher". I bring a curiosity of God's creation into the study of how the world works and the science that physics uses to understand it.

...I like to first focus on understanding the concepts. Too often, students understand the mechanics of solving the problems but not the physical laws (like Newton's laws) behind them. Once the student has a solid foundation, it's time to do problems - lots of them.
