I am a licensed teacher, tutor, and homeschool specialist with a Master’s in Education from Hamline University. Over the past fifteen years, I have taught and tutored hundreds of students at private and public schools in Minnesota, Maine, New York, California, North Dakota and Wisconsin.
Believing that the relationship between student and teacher is paramount, I use humor, project-based learning, deep content knowledge and my rich experience with diverse learners to bring out the best in my students. I have a great passion for working with young people to develop and realize their academic and life goals. I believe I bring great enthusiasm and curiosity about the world to my teaching, and I know from experience that all students can succeed.
I am currently working on an ACT curriculum and a fantasy trilogy based on 'the little people' of old Norse myth . I live in the Nokomis neighborhood of Minneapolis with my lovely and all-knowing wife, Stefanie, two vibrant sons, Bjorn and Rowan, and a large, rambunctious dog with an unfortunate fondness for hossenfeffer.
