I believe to be a tutor there are two critical elements, knowledge and communication. As a tutor, what good is knowledge if you can't share it with the student?
To speak to my knowledge, I will explore my background. Throughout grade school I was always ahead of the curve and when I got to high school I was placed in all honors or sophomore level classes. Upon graduation I had chosen to go to the University of Toledo in Northwest Ohio because my ACT scores and high school grades had qualified me for a scholarship that paid for full tuition and fees. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree. Immediately after undergrad, I started the grad program at the University of Toledo and received my Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on thermal sciences. I am currently employed at a leading Aerospace company designing Fuel Control Systems called Woodward, Inc. My entire professional/educational career would not have been possible without a deep understanding of math and technical sciences (physics, fluid dynamics, calculus, chemistry, statistics, etc.).
I have always been a social butterfly, and I work well with others. Throughout my years of schooling I have always helped other students. In college, I was a teaching assistant for a few courses and even received the "Outstanding Teaching Assistant" award during my 6th year. I was previously employed at a large private learning center, but left shortly after my WyzAnt career exploded! My communication skills have always been far above average throughout these endeavors, and I have always succeeded in helping those who have needed it.
My methods of tutoring can vary depending on what is needed. If current course assitance is all that is required, I would love to answer any questions, provide supplemental material and input, and help with any homework. If course or test prep is needed I can come up with a curriculum and practice examples to prepare your student for ACTs, SATs, or an upcoming course in high school or college.
