I'm a recent UC Berkeley mechanical engineering graduate (Fall 2012, GPA 3.1). I'm currently living in north Oakland and seeking an engineering job in the Bay Area. My subject areas for tutoring are core mechanical engineering classes (fluids, thermo, circuits, dynamics, etc), math (single & multivariable calc), and physics (dynamics, waves, E&M).
My previous tutoring experience was roughly a year, during senior year of high school - I tutored algebra (references for that available on request). In addition to that, I've helped other students with material I excel at throughout my academic career - as a Berkeley engineering student, there is a strong atmosphere of cooperative learning, with students forming study groups to work on difficult concepts. There's an unspoken understanding that everyone has certain subjects that are particularly challenging for them, and helping each other is the best way to ensure success in all subjects. For instance, last semester I devoted some extra time to helping students in my numerical analysis class with the matlab programming projects; since I had taken E7, I had a leg up in Matlab and was able to provide support. One of these students was a friend of mine, and one introduced himself in class and asked for help. I've really found tutoring to be a win-win, not only because it makes for a positive and effective learning environment, but also because it helps me to solidify and test my own understanding of a concept - and above all, of course, because I enjoy the teaching experience.
