Teaching

With over ten years of teaching experience, I have honed my ability to communicate age-appropriate technical skills to a broad range of age groups. My goal as a teacher is to provide a challenging, edifying, and safe environment that students of all ages may excel.

I have taken some time away from full-time teaching to explore my interests in the areas of business and administration, but I am available to sub for classes in the San Francisco area.
