About

Who I Am

With boundless enthusiasm, a good sense of humor, proven leadership skills and an open-mind, my passion for learning and teaching is never-ending. I am not only a learning coach to students but to fellow instructors and the general public ranging from Microsoft applications to Adobe Creative Suite to HTML and Programming. I stay current in my craft and focus on implementing innovation and creative thinking in others while developing lifelong understanding.

My motivation to teach comes from a desire to help others and to see student’s gratification as they learn new concepts. I believe teaching is not about instructing or imparting information to individuals but to fill their minds with not only my knowledge, rather, teaching is empowering students to take responsibility for their own learning, inspiring them to grow intellectually by providing opportunities and clarifying values.
