Jordan enjoys helping students with challenging math problems and loves to see the dawning of understanding when they grasp a new concept. He found his first true appreciation of the beauty and order in mathematics during a college calculus class, and his love of mathematics has continued to grow. He thinks there is little more wonderful than seeing a mathematical concept, such as a Fibonacci sequence, reflected in the beauty of God’s creation.
Jordan graduated with a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Washington State University and a doctorate in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. While completing many interesting research projects in graduate school, he had numerous opportunities to teach college students and to tutor for the SAT. Currently, in addition to teaching, he works as an engineer for JP3 Measurement in Austin, TX.
Jordan and his wife, Sarah, have homeschooled their four children for a number of years, though some of them now attend brick and mortar schools. Jordan also serves as an elder at All Saints Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Austin.
