I have been a student (I have 4 degrees in mechanical engineering, 3 of them advanced.) and a teacher (I have been full time faculty, visiting professor, adjoint and online faculty.) for a very long time. My teaching style and philosophy have developed and matured based on these experiences.

When I teach, I try to emulate my best teachers, and I also share with my students the ways in which I understood and sometimes discovered concepts. I believe that understanding the fundamental principles is paramount to understanding more complex concepts and tools, and I focus on the process of going from the basic to the complex. Whenever possible, I teach through solving complex problems: I challenge my students to think, to use everything they know to solve a problem, to check and question their own assumptions, and to clearly define the boundaries of their solution. I think it is important to relate concepts and tools to practical applications: it helps to understand them; it helps to remember them; and it helps to make them relevant and worth learning.

Very Helpful My son found him to be very helpful. He was worried about being tutored, but said he was comfortable with Marcos. My son was impressed that he said he would look a couple things up on his own time and go over them next session with him. My son is looking forward to the next session. ...
