My name is Eric S. I am a third year student at the University of California Merced majoring in Mechanical engineering. As a student at a UC I know what it takes to succeed and what is expected of every student, so for any high school student wishing to pursue a higher education in college I can provide some great tips and study skills that can provide useful as you move further into your academics. As a Mechanical engineer I have taken many courses that deal directly with Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Writing. I have taken courses in Calculus, Probability and Statistics, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra, Vector Calculus, and I am currently enrolled in a Numerical Analysis course that deals with MATLAB. I have also taken Physics for engineers and am enrolled in Statics and Dynamics which is somewhat of an extension of general physics, so i can prove to be very useful and helpful in that area.
I am currently pursuing a minor in Writing, simply because I have a passion for writing and believe that each and every individual has a story to tell. It is important to tell your story and embrace it, because it is that story that makes us who we are. As a minor in Writing, I can be an extensive help in writing essays, how to break down writing prompts and I can provide tips on what exactly some professors are looking for. I can also be helpful in terms of grammar, vocabulary and the mechanics of writing (i.e., sentence structure, punctuation, etc.).
