I enjoy teaching science and mathematics. My teaching style involves engaging students with questions to find out what you know and need to learn, so I can guide you to your own solution. That way, when the exam comes, you're ready.

I have taught Newtonian Mechanics Lab, Electricity and Magnetism Problem Sessions and Intro. to Engineering Design. I have a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on heat transfer from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey, and have Bachelor's degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics from Kettering University here in Michigan.

I am available weekdays other than Wednesday after 7:00 PM, and anytime after 10:00 AM most weekends. I request lesson topics one day in advance.

Understanding calculus is a fundamental gateway into the sciences.

Calculus can seem very abstract at first glance compared to earlier math classes, but with some guidance and effort can be understood.

I have an extensive background in calculus and its application.

My education includes a master's in mechanical engineering and a bachelors in applied physics & mechanical engineering, understanding math has been an essential part of my education.

Differential Equations

I've had extensive coursework in or applying differential equations. At the undergraduate level, I've had Differential Equations and the more advanced Boundary Value Problems, and applied these in Quantum Mechanics, Classical Mechanics, Acoustics, and Electromagnetic Fields at Kettering University. At the graduate level in the department of Mechanical Engineering, I have taken Advanced Math I & II, which solidified my ability to tackle ordinary, partial, homogeneous, non-homogeneous, and systems of differential equations.


I enjoy tutoring and teaching physics. I have tutored physics, taught Phys. I lab and Phys. II problem sessions.

My bachelor of science is a dual degree in applied physics and mechanical engineering.
