Teaching Philosophy and Additional Information
I have been at MC since 2013. I have taught and advised students for nearly 20 years.
My goal is to not only help you develop a path to graduation or transferring, but
to make sure you study what you are truly passionate about, are able to follow your
dreams, and make a living doing what you love. And if you don't know what that is,
then you and I will figure it out together. While I teach history, I can help and
advise on any subject, and will move heaven and earth to get you the answers you need
to be successful at MC.
