I started teaching in graduate school. To date, I have taught math and science from the basics through an advanced college level. I hold a Doctorate Degree in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Besides my Ph.D., I also have two Master of Science Degrees in Mechanical and Manufacturing engineering. I usually do not work with more than 4 students per school year as it allows me to concentrate on the needs of each individual rather than creating a "tutoring factory." My teaching methods are simple: I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. Therefore, I always start a new subject with going through the theoretical part. Then I follow up with as many example problems as it takes for the student to fully understand the subject.
I have always enjoyed teaching and tutoring is one of the ways I can do it presently as I am employed full time by the federal government. As a mechanical engineer, my day-to-day work activities are highly technical, which allow me to stay erudite in science (math, physics, engineering, etc.). I also mentor summer and professional development students at work. Currently, I have over 5 years of combined experience teaching and mentoring students.
