Hello Thorgerdur, You can begin both problems by replacing 314 with its modular 7 representation: 314^163 = 6^163 mod 7 (a) Note how powers of 6 repeat cyclically in the modular 7 number system: 6^1 = 6 mod 7 6^2 = 1 mod 7 6^3 = 6 mod...

Subjects

I tutor mechanical engineering subjects such as statics, strength of materials, structural analysis, and vibrations. I can also help with linear algebra and multivariable calculus, which are needed to understand finite element analysis.

Style

I believe in building a strong conceptual foundation. I have seen a small investment of time into mastering the basics make learning throughout the semester exponentially faster, easier, and rewarding.

Experience

I graduated from MIT with an SB in Civil Engineering, and I am a mechanical EIT with lots of teaching and tutoring experience. I taught linear algebra for MIT's high school summer program; I worked as a science instructor at the Newman School in Back Bay; and I have been tutoring BU, MIT, and NEU students for the last five years.

Location

I would be happy to meet you in a public space at your apartment. I could also reserve a quiet study room at an MIT library near the Kendall/MIT red line stop.

About myself

A few years ago, I quit my job as an engineer in order to pursue my interest in traditional furniture making. In my spare time, I enjoy recreational flying as a private pilot and fixing up my ever-ailing vintage car. I am also an avid roadtripper, who likes exploring the once wild west.

Emma tutored me for Statics and Strength of Materials last semester. She was always well-prepared, and I remember being continually amazed by her knowledge and competence in the material. She knew how to solve all the problems without looking at them twice, and she would always guide me through the solution instead of simply throwing it at me. She was also incredibly patient and took the time to answer all my questions. She truly cares for her students and wants them to succeed. I would highly recommend her for math, science, and other related subjects.

Very lucky for having Emma to help my son Hart. Emma is very knowledgeable and she is very patient. My son has improved his grade in his Calculus since Emma tutored him several times. Absolutely, Emma is helpful to my son. And we are happy to have her tutoring continue.

Typically I have always been strong in Math and Science. However, since enrolling in my Master's Degree, I have found that I am struggling to remember the material after years without practice. I began to fall behind in the material and so I sought tutoring. The first several tutors we not very helpful. Not only were they hard to reach and schedule, they did not know the material any better than I did. Imagine my discouragement. Eventually, a fortunate turn of events put me in contact with Emma and she was the best by far. Emma is the most responsive and easiest tutor to work with. She is able to explain the concepts in ways that are easy to understand and follow along with. Emma does not simply explain the process and move on, she helps you to work through the process yourself to ensure that you understand. Additionally, I was asked for the material I was studying ahead of time. Emma then reviewed the material and ensured that she met me with a full understanding of what I was working on. Even after the sessions, she would e-,mail me with more material to further explain any questions that I struggled on. Emma truly takes it to the next level with a care and effort that is not commonly found in today's society.

I provide my highest level of recommendation to Emma as a math tutor. She helped me through the hardest class I have ever taken in my life. I had very little math experience prior to taking a very technical graduate program. I needed to take masters level calculus, probability, discrete math and statistics to complete my masters of science in computer information systems.

Emma has a way of explaining concepts so that they are much easier to understand than the way they are written on math textbooks. She takes the notation-heavy gibberish and translates it into understandable concepts that make it much more efficient to learn. Anytime I was confused about a subject I would take in my questions to her and she would be able to explain them in a way I would absorb. She is very knowledgeable in many disciplines. She was able to create practice questions that matched the format and difficulty level of the typical homework assignments. She is very reliable. She put a lot of effort into the lessons. She was very encouraging and she truly cared about my progress. With her help I was able to complete the program successfully.

Emma took the time and patience to help me overcome my difficulties in Linear Algebra. She is precise, organized, and very helpful!

Emma did an excellent job at helping my son prepare for the SAT Math II. With her guidance and his hard work, he scored perfect 800 marks!

Emma came to the session well prepared and broke down complex concepts and made me understand and know how to solve all kinds of problems. I recommend for any engineering class.

Emma did a fantastic job at breaking different problems down. She wouldn't hesitate for a second to jump up and draw out the problem for me while talking me through each step. She allowed me to understand the bigger picture so that smaller details didn't seem so intimidating anymore. She did a fantastic job at helping me prepare for my physics midterm, which I went into feeling very confident thanks to Emma. I highly recommend her!!

Emma has been very helpful. She explains the concepts well and is patient. She is easy to understand and breaks down the questions into steps that I can follow and practice more. She also provides useful websites to facilitate my learning.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I frequently tutor calculus, and I have studied it from many angles. In high school, I scored 5/5 on both AP Calculus AB and BC examinations. At MIT, I aced multivariable calculus. I have also taken mathematical analysis, and it has given me insight into the theoretical development of calculus.

Classes I have tutored:

BU MA123 - Calculus I

NEU MATH1231 - Calculus for Business and Economics

NEU MATH1341 - Calculus I

NEU MATH1342 - Calculus II

I have a SB in Civil Engineering from MIT. I specialize in the structural analysis of trusses, beams, and frames. I am very familiar with conjugate beam theory, the load displacement relationships, flexibility method, stiffness method, moment-distribution method, and energy methods.

While at MIT, I took several discrete math classes covering number theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and probability.

Classes I have tutored:

MIT 6.042 - Mathematics for Computer Science

I took linear algebra at MIT, and the concepts I learned reappeared ubiquitously throughout my engineering coursework. Because of this, I am very familiar with both the theory and engineering applications. I taught an informal introduction to linear algebra class and also have experience tutoring undergraduate-level linear algebra.

Classes I have tutored:

BU ENG EK 102 - Intro to Linear Algebra for Engineers

MIT 18.06 - Intro to Linear Algebra

I am a certified mechanical EIT in MA. The certification process involves passing the FE, an eight hour exam that tests competency in mechanical engineering topics such as statics, dynamics, vibrations, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and materials.

Hello Thorgerdur, You can begin both problems by replacing 314 with its modular 7 representation: 314^163 = 6^163 mod 7 (a) Note how powers of 6 repeat cyclically in the modular 7 number system: 6^1 = 6 mod 7 6^2 = 1 mod 7 6^3 = 6 mod...

Hi Brittany, The only numbers that square to one are 1 and -1. 1 = 1 x 1 1 = (-1) x (-1) So since (tan x) squares to one, (tan x) must be 1 or -1. There are two values of x in the interval [0, pi] that make it happen. tan (pi/4) = 1 tan (3*pi/4) = -1

Hi Barb, The typical way to evaluate 67 x 436 is by multiplying and adding: (60 + 7) x 436. Usually this is written as: 436 x 67 --------- 3052 = 436 x 7 + 26160 = 436 x 60 ---------- ...
