Jordan graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. While completing many interesting research projects in graduate school, Jordan had numerous opportunities to teach college students and to tutor for the SAT. Currently, in addition to teaching, Jordan works as an engineer for JP3 Measurement in Austin, TX. He and his wife, Sarah, have homeschooled their 4 children for a number of years, though some of them now attend regular schools. He continues to enjoy helping his children 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 community college calculus class and this 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 also serves as a Ruling Elder at All Saints Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Austin.
