I'm a graduate from an Ivy League college with a degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in electrical engineering. Even though, aside from when I worked at a teaching assistant while getting my masters in mechanical engineering, I don't have teaching background, I have always enjoyed tutoring because I enjoy learning and believe that it's an important skill for life. I primarily tutor high school math and science (physics and chemistry), but I have also tutored college level math (calculus, statistics), mechanical engineering (thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer) and computer science.
The thing that makes a little different from most tutors is that I only do this on the side. Despite over ten years of experience tutoring, I've always kept tutoring as a part-time thing with a limited number of students. I prefer it this way so I can get to know my pupils better. In addition, this arrangement means that I usually have enough free time to be flexible in case the student needs an extra session for a test or midterms, or has to reschedule because of conflicts.
My hourly rate is a little on the high side but depending on the proximity of location and time of day, the rate can be adjusted down.
I have minored in electrical engineering while getting my degree in mechanical engineering. I also worked for three years as a research assistant doing signal and data analysis for a professor of electrical engineering.
I can help with second-year analog circuits and digital logic, along with their related lab classes. I can also help with discrete math and computer architecture classes.
I have basic level exerience with EAGLE CAD circuit board layout software.
I have a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering with a concentration in vehicle engineering and minor in electrical engineering from Cornell University and a Master of Science in mechanical engineering with a concentration in thermofluids from Stony Brook University.
On the academic side I have tutored college students in calculus, statics, physics, chemistry, thermodynamics and computer science (Java and Matlab). When I was at Stony Brook, I was a teaching assistant for a system dynamics class and for senior lab where I worked with students on their wind tunnel experiments.
On the professional side, I'm familiar with many computer-aided design programs, but I am most proficient with ProEngineer Wildfire/Creo. For finite element analysis, I am experienced with ANSYS and ProMechanica. I also have a lot of experience with Matlab for data analysis.
Very helpful — Brian C. was very helpful. He was able to engage a student who was not happy doing math, let alone having a tutor. ...
