I am an engineer with a strong background in math and significant tutoring experience.
I graduated from the University of Michigan, earning a BSE in Nuclear Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. While at Michigan, I worked in the Department of Mathematics tutoring undergraduate math courses (precalculus, calculus, differential equations). I then went on to work at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory as an engineer where I practiced what I learned in math, science, and engineering daily. I also volunteered through the laboratory’s community outreach program at the local high school tutoring all levels of math (prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, precalculus).
Through my college coursework and my work as an engineer, I have gained further competency in algebra, precalculus, calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and physics. My engineering work experience gives me the unique ability to share real world examples of applied math and physics with students!
My tutoring philosophy is focused on strengthening comprehension and application of fundamental concepts and problem solving approaches. While math problems can seem complicated, they all follow basic rules and patterns. By building and practicing foundational principles and rules, my students can break down complicated problems into smaller, simpler steps. I assess where my student’s difficulties are coming from, give focused instruction on the concept, and give additional problem sets in the area to reinforce good habits.
