Profile

I'm an Academic Specialist. Linguist. Veteran.

I not only remember the struggles of K-12, but I see that students are highly under served all around America. I decided to quit my Marketing job in California and move back home to do what I can to use my nerdiness to help my community.

I have always had a fascination with the human body. After my stint of military linguistics, I was recruited to work in Human Intelligence. Later, I underwent graduate studies in Philosophy at UC Berkeley.

As a Certified Linguist from the Department of Defense paired with a decade and a half of study, I am confident in my expertise in this field. When I was a Cryptographic Linguist in the Air Force, I was given the opportunity to study at one of the world's top linguist institutions. My insight is certainly unique and learning language has become a specialty for me.

Reading Comprehension is often approached with ambiguous techniques. In my experience, often I would run into the situation where the question asked would not be the question intended. This would frustrate and confuse me; adding insult to injury, my teachers would respond with rolled eyes, heavy sighs, and impatient tones. I believed I was "a bad reader". To my surprise when given the results of the SATs (tested one in English and another in French), I scored exceptionally higher on the French exam. That taught me that the way I was taught and told to view reading comprehension in English was flawed. I developed my own approach which in turn unlocked the skills for me to now have studied over fifteen languages.

My experiences in life always being the "stupid" kid, getting beat up for being in the "special" classes, and the triumph that I experienced is what I desire to spread to all the students who have been programmed as being "defective". I became the TOP military instructors in under 3 years completely revolutionizing the way we teach our Airmen top secret and complex topics. To this day, I proudly hold my 100% student success rate as my most prized accomplishment.
