I have a BS in mechanical engineering from an ABET accredited college. I have always loved helping others to learn new concepts and share the experience and knowledge that I have gained over the years. My favorite part of the teaching experience is getting to watch comprehension dawn on a student's face as they grasp a new concept. I look forward to the opportunity to teach students and help them to realize their full potential and find what they want to do with their education and their life.
My previous experience with tutoring started when I was asked to tutor a few special needs children. Then during the later few years of my college career, I was employed by the college as a professor's aide. During this time I graded entry and mid-level engineering math and engineering courses. I try to turn tutoring into more of a conversation, and allow the individual to talk out loud about what their current thought processes are, what they don't understand, and what they do know already. I find that this form of learning was what worked best for me when I was a student, and hope to be able to help others learn as I did.
I have been a classically trained trumpet player since I began taking lessons at the age of 10. I performed individually, as well as part of a band, throughout all of junior high, high school, college, and afterwards. I have experience as part of a marching band, and also thoroughly enjoyed being part of my college's jazz band every year I was a student. I have extensive knowledge on tuning, proper warm up procedures, advancing through increasing difficulty levels of sight reading, learning to hear for proper tonal quality, tuning, and more. Giving trumpet lessons should always involve course material that slowly but continually advances the student's ability to sight read more complex music, as well as improving their lip strength, range, and endurance.
