My name is Kyle; I am a graduate of New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) with a Bachelor of Science degree Magna Cum Laude in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in biomaterials and tissue engineering and a minor in biology. My final undergraduate GPA was 3.816. I recently completed my PhD at NJIT in the Material Science and Engineering program. I conduct research at NJIT and meshes traditional engineering principles, biophysics/bioelectronics with neuroscience and pharmacology. While a graduate student, I mentored several undergraduate students in my laboratory so I have a lot of experience interacting with college students. I spent several months teaching at the high school levels as a teaching fellow for a nationally funded program that bring scientists into the Newark Public School system. I have experience teaching Physics to undergraduate science and engineering students at NJIT and have served as a teaching assistant. I have been certified emergency medical technician for the last ten years and a trained firefighter for the last five. I have experience teaching the clinical portion of the EMT course as well.
For the future prosperity of this country, I think it is very important to preach the virtues of science and mathematics to younger students. My teaching style can best be described as a relaxed yet focused approach to conveying information. From my own experiences, I know that students are able to concentrate and understand information best when they are in a low stress and supportive environment. Furthermore, I think that it is essential for students to not only know the information that they are being tested on but to actually UNDERSTAND the information and how it was derived, especially in the math and science disciplines.
