Math and science were my favorite subjects throughout my formal schooling and I can help any student improve their knowledge in these courses by helping them enjoy the subjects rather than be intimidated by them.
What are my credentials? I have a BS and MS in Aeronautical Engineering and an MS in Mechanical Engineering and as a result I've taken many courses in math and science, the basis of engineering.
How long have I been tutoring? I have tutored for over 30 years, at the start finding students in a "word of mouth" manner from friends of the family, work associates and others. While in graduate school at Notre Dame I worked for the athletic department as a tutor for their engineering student-athletes. In addition to tutoring, I have taught several engineering courses at the college level and for the past 15 years I have coached youth baseball, which is a different sort of teaching from the classroom, but still involves guiding young people with a goal of improving themselves.
How will I help, will I do your homework? Doing your homework for you does you no good in the long run. I will guide you through your homework using examples that are similar to your homework in order to reinforce the concepts your instructor is trying to teach. Along the way, I will ask you questions as a way of testing your understanding. These tactics will help you when examination time comes as you will have seen many more examples of relevant questions giving you a broader base of knowledge and more confidence in attacking new problems. I can also create practice exams for you to work under test conditions in order for you to improve your test taking skills.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching and can improve your knowledge of math or science, improve your test taking skills and improve your confidence so you can take on more and more challenging subjects with ease.
