My name is Jeffrey, and I am a degreed Mechanical Engineer residing in Hudson, NY. I have 7 years of industry based engineering experience and 4 year of College based experience from Rensselaer PolyTechnic Institute. I also have significant experience in working with teens in both a tutoring and mentoring environment. On weekends I also run a church youth group.
As a tutor I am very aware that no two students are alike. Therefore, I recognize that each student will have a different learning preference whether it is visual, auditory, or reading. To provide the best tutoring experience, I work to accommodate these preferences. I am also careful to identify gaps in a students understanding. It has been my experience that a student's lack of understanding current subject matter often results from a gap in fundamental knowledge. In this case it is critical to identify such a gap and to develop the fundamental understanding required. From that point on, building off of that foundation is much simpler. I believe that no student is unintelligent or incapable of learning even the most complicated subject matter. Instead, it is only a matter of teaching the student the methods they need to use to be able to learn. Tutoring must go beyond just teaching subjects by teaching students how to learn independently as well. I look forward to the opportunity to share in my students learning and their future accomplishments.
