I have graduated top of my class with a Masters Degree in Structural Engineering. I have tutored over 23 Engineering related subjects for about 6 years, two with the University.
As an undergraduate student, I maintained a 3.95 Engineering G.P.A. while at CSUN. I have various techniques to help students grasp difficult topics and ideas. There have been many professors in my family, and I have developed some of my techniques from watching them while growing up.
I was a tutor in CSUN's Engineering Department for 2 years. During that time I have tutored Calculus
1, 2 and 3; Differential Equations
, Mechanics and Electromagnetism
; Engineering Statics and Dynamics; AutoCAD
; Material Science
; Strength of Materials; Construction Management; Structures; Thermodynamics
, Fluid Mechanics, and Hydraulics; Steel Design; Concrete Design; Vibrations; Fundamentals of Circuits; Engineering Statistics
; Engineering Economics
; Fundamentals of Soils and Foundations.
Since then I have worked in various fields of Civil Engineering
, Construction, Drafting, and Seismic Research, tutoring and Manufacturing Engineering. I have also tutored subjects from the Structural Engineering graduate program at CSUN, as well as helping students prepare for the California EIT Exam and the California Civil Engineering PE Exam.
I am also capable of teaching various computer
programs such as AutoCAD, RISA, SAP2000, and Google SketchUp.
As a part of my graduate studies, I have taken courses in Timber & Masonry Design, Pre-Stressed Concrete Design, Advanced Steel Design, Structural Dynamics, Earthquake Engineering, Advanced Mathematics
, Finite Element Analysis and Advanced Differential Equations.
To this day, I continue to study new subjects and grow as an Engineer and Educator. I take it upon myself to always continue learning and providing the services that my current students require. Often times, professors are changing their approaches and expanding the topics they cover. I purchase the textbooks which professors currently use, and I make sure to learn, understand and be capable of explaining the methods preferred by professors. I pride myself in knowing that my students can count on me to help them with almost any topic they encounter, and all of my students know that if there is anyone who can explain a complicated Engineering, Math
or Physics topic; it is me.
Throughout my career as a Civil Engineering student, I have taken nothing for granted. I would always reinforce my understanding of the subject by going through mathematical derivations, and by interrelating topics from different fields in Engineering. I was President of the American Society of Civil Engineers during my Junior year at CSUN and I was also President of the Engineer Honor's Society, Tau Beta Pi, in my last year as an undergrad.
I still volunteer my time and expertise to many Engineering clubs at CSUN. I have helped and participated with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers, the American Society of Civil Engineers, Tau Beta Pi, IEEE and HKN (Electrical Engineering
Societies). I enjoy helping others, and have spent the past four years doing just that.
