The daily and constant application of math in my regular profession as a civil engineer makes formulas, equations, and numbers come alive for me. Math is no longer just a dry abstract exercise in rearranging variables and numbers. Instead, they are purpose-based! They have to be, for in my line of work, we breathe deadlines. Calculating a design problem in an overly complicated and very time-consuming process, when there is instead a faster, simpler, and more efficient way to do it, is deeply frowned upon.
Efficient and innovative ways of solving math problems are what I wish to share with and impart to a young student. I also wish to share this valuable sense I developed at work: of what's extremely important, of what's important, of what's somewhat important, and what's not important.
My background education in terms of mathematics ranges from the secondary basics in high school (algebra, trigonometry, precalculus) to more advance courses required for my engineering degree (calculus I - III, and differential equations).
I am eager to teach and conduct classes again. I held a part-time substitute teaching position for K-8 with CPS from Fall of 2006 to late 2007, being assigned to various neighborhood schools. Also, as an engineer, I have volunteered to conduct balsa wood bridge building and competitions at different schools. With these skills, I would love to share them as I offer my tutoring services for you on a weekend. Thank you very much.
