I have over four years of experience tutoring with hundreds of hours of tutoring time. I have an excellent background in tutoring and the courses I cover, much of which I got when I studied Civil Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA)
Although it is a small college of 1600 undergraduates it has a sterling reputation for math, science and engineering. Math and science courses at WPI built upon a strong foundation which started at Oakland Technical High School's Engineering Academy (Math, Descriptive Geometry, Physics, CAD) and Paideia Program (English, History, Government). Although I know that my skills have expanded since high-school, I note my experience there as over 3/4 of my tutees are of the highschool level with the rest usually being college or occasionally being at the middle-school level.
I have been taught and consider it true, that if I can't explain a subject then I don't truly understand it. This fact has led me to work with and help other students throughout my education and to this day. I also believe that visualizing a problem makes it easier to solve and gives a greater understanding of the subject whether it is a single line, a geometric problem or even advanced physics or engineering situations. I make an effort to provide multiple ways to understand a problem and to determine what is the best way for each student to learn.
I have a great deal of experience tutoring at many different levels. Starting when I was just tutoring for fun in high-school and college and I would tutor my friends in whatever classes we were taking or that I had taken. For the last four years I have privately tutored dozens of students for a total of over four hundred hours, including over a hundred on this site alone. In addition I also worked at a after-school tutoring company during a school year and then taught a summer course in geometry to the students there.
I am a knowledgeable and patient tutor who has helped numerous students past what they were stuck on and created a solid foundation for them to continue with. I believe I have helped my tutees in their studies which is attested to by my ratings and reviews.
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler" -Einstein
"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself" -John Dewey
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” - Mahatma Gandhi
"If you think education is expensive, try ignorance" -Andy McIntyre or Derek Bok
“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” - Margaret Mead
"Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army"
The following are subjects that I've taken, which I have an understanding of the fundamentals and applications of, and can tutor in:
Highschool Level Coursework
Statistics and Probability
College Level Coursework
AP Calculus (Single and Multivariate)
Linear Algebra and Matrices
HP and AP Physics (5 on AP test)
Newtonian Physics (Basic and Calculus Based)
Electricity and Magnetism
AP Biology (4)
Material Science (e.g. Wood, Concrete, Steel)
AP History (5)
AP Government (5)
Matrix applications to computer aided design
(California Basic Educational Skills Test)
EIT -Engineer In Training Certification for Civil Engineering
I have worked with AutoCAD 2004 and 2007, and AutoCAD Architectural Desktop for a total of hundreds of hours; including a major project submitted to the CA State Fair in which I put in over a hundred hours of work.
I first used AutoCAD in the Oakland Technical High Engineering Academy in a number of classes.
-To create mechanical drawings
Descriptive Geometry Honors Program (HP)
-To solve Geometry problems
Advanced Architectural Drafting
-To recreate, then design multiple buildings
Physics Honors Program (HP)
-To solve physics problems
Although I only took one college course, "Fundamentals of Civil Engineering AutoCAD." I used AutoCAD in many of my courses, specifically Calculus 2-4, Physics Mechanics, Strength of Materials, and heavily used it in the class of Surveying.
I am CBEST accredited and have tutored students in all of the aspects of the test.
Government and politics are two of my passions. Ever since highschool I have had an interest in government and politics, especially how they relate to people. Although I enjoy knowing about our government I feel the need to spead that knowledge for I believe as Jefferson did that
". . . whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that, whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them right." (as cited in Padover, 1939, p. 88)
Knowledgeable and insightful — Was very familiar with the topic (Calculus) and able to convey ideas and concepts with ease. Jared also connected the specific concept of the chapter with those of future chapters, placing the entire lesson within the context of calculus as a whole. In addition, he was also patient and willing to wait for his student to try to figure out the problem on his own, before he jumped in to help. An ov ...
