I look at tutoring as an opportunity to help others develop confidence in themselves through a series of small wins. I take time to really understand the strengths and weaknesses of each individual and use a gentle and encouraging approach to help them capitalize on their strengths and overcome obstacles. I believe we all want to learn, the material just needs to be presented in a fun and interesting way.
I feel grateful to be able to help another person and share my knowledge with them. I find it very rewarding to see them build self-esteem and make progress. Those little 'aha' moments when the neurons start connecting are exciting and energetic.

I like to have a good understanding of the goals we are trying to acheive and work together on a solid plan to achieve them.
I have a Bechelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah. I worked as an engineer in the aerospace and heavy duty vehicle industries for over 20 years. I have several patents, written children's books, and created hundred's of logos. My wife and I own a business focused on mental fitness and help others to improve their confidence, motivation, and creativity every day through uniquely themed, fun, collaborative, mental challenge adventures.
I prefer to charge per hour.
I have always enjoyed being in a leadership and mentoring role, from being captain of the football team in high-school, to restaurant manager while going to college, to leading young engineers, to being the father of five children, to being business owner.
I have worked with young and old, motivated and unmotivated students. I believe that every moment is a teaching moment.
As entrepreneurs, we were recently accepted into a business accelerator program. It is a very intense course with lots of learning, thinking, and discovery. I realize that learning is key to changing your thinking. And changing your thinking is key to living a fulfilling and enriched life.
Make sure you are a good fit together and that their style of teaching matches your style of learning.
