I am a Licensed Teacher and I love Math and Science and enjoy being a Tutor. I have special interest and passion for teaching and I have over two years of combined teaching experience in K-12 and university level classes.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics with an emphasis in Mathematics and a Minor in Space Science and extensive experience in the field of physics through the McNair Scholars Program, NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities RGSFO Program and the Stairstep Program. Additionally I worked as a student assistant and taught space science labs and have experience as a K-12 substitute teacher and currently have a long term substitute teaching position with Clark County School District where I perform the duties of a licensed teacher.
