I have 2 Masters Degrees: one in Mechanical Engineering and one in Material Science Engineering. I worked as an engineer for over 10 years. Although I enjoyed engineering very much, I did some tutoring during graduate school and found that I liked that as well.

I am qualified to tutor in any of the math subjects and any of the physical sciences. I also have expertise in several of the Microsoft Computer applications. I have tutored Middle School, High School, and College Level students. I LOVE Math and Science and I hope to make learning these subjects fun for you!
