Bio

I am passionate about helping people learn new skills that they can use in their lives. I enjoy reading, hiking and screenplay writing.

I sincerely love seeing when a person understands something that they didn't before.I enjoy explaining concepts and telling stories. I am passionate about creating a learning environment that the student enjoys and feels at peace. Furthermore, I also feel that I improve myself as a person by meeting students and learning from them as I teach - in this way,a mutual learning environment is created.
