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.
