I am an Eagle Scout and recent graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) where I earned my Master of Science in Materials Engineering. I also earned my B.S. from RPI graduating Cum Laude. As an undergraduate I was a member of the Materials Science honors society, Alpha Sigma Mu and a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, a community service fraternity. As an engineer my curriculum was heavy in math and sciences.
Being a recent student and TA, I believe that I offer a unique perspective compared to "professional" tutors. As a student, I am able to relate to other students and determine what makes a subject or concept difficult. I understand what methods of conveying a concept seem to be confusing and ineffective on the receiving end and frequent discussion with other students about class materials also enables me to find many different ways to explain the same concept. My experience as a TA has taught me to effectively and confidently communicate in a way that seems to inspire a fundamental understanding. Feedback from students and parents has been highly positive.
I am an excellent fit with SUNY Albany, RPI, or HVCC students. Specific courses I have had much success in are:
All Common Core Mathematics
Calculus 1 and 2
Introduction to Differential Equations
Physics 1 and 2
Materials Science for Engineers
Strength of Materials
Engineering Graphics and CAD
