I, like most instructors, believe that students should take responsibility for their own learning. Having said that, I want to assure you, that my goal is to be available as much as possible to help you achieve "your" goal. I believe that students learn best by teaching others, and by practicing.
As Einstein said, and I paraphrase: " I am not smarter than others, I just work longer on a problem." Students tend to give up too soon, or don't spend enough time learning. It's not enough to be able to plug in numbers and get an answer. The most important thing you can accomplish is to understand a problem and be able to problem solve to arrive at an answer. Employers are looking to hire problem solvers, and I will do my best to help you to become one.

 I am very interested in the application of mathematics to the fields of finance and economics.
 I have been actively involved in the aviation industry as a pilot as well as various management positions for over 25 years. I have flown thousands of flights throughout the Southwestern United States, including flights over the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley and Lake Powell. I have also enjoyed working as an Alaskan Bush Pilot flying DeHavilland Beaver floatplanes throughout Southeastern Alaska, and as a medical air ambulance pilot flying a Learjet 35 throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
