My road in life has been direct.
When I was in second grade, I was diagnosed with dyslexia.
I was falling behind scholastically which frustrated me. I studied hard, but my grades were poor.
I decided I wanted to go college, so I started teaching myself new ways to study.
While I was in college, I made the National Dean's List. As a kid, I'd thought that'd be impossible.
After graduating, I started teaching math to students with learning and attention issues.
From the time I arrived, until the end of the year, my students' performance improved by 2-5 years.
All of the kids I taught ended up going to the colleges they wanted to go to and finding success.
Keep following my journey

Helping People

Day to Day

I get up very early in the morning to do live morning commute radio interviews in cities across the country. Then I'll spend some time writing and editing articles for online publications. I often counsel parents and students so they can overhaul their study habits and methods in order to help them find the most academic success. In the evenings, I'll attend galas for organizations like The Family Place in Dallas, which helps students and parents who've hit hard times find educational success.

Advice for Getting Started

Doing volunteer work or babysitting from a young age will greatly improve your people skills. This also works as a great trial run to help you find out if you actually enjoy educating children, or if it's just something that you thought you might like.

The Noise I Shed

From Teachers:

"You're lazy. You're not trying. You don't have any abilities or talent. You'll never be as good as the rest of these students."
