Hello! The Tap Dancing Engineer is here to help you learn.
I have a Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and worked in the automotive industry for 8 years. I have also studied tap dance for over 20 years, including spending time with some of the most prominent teachers currently in the tap dance community. I have a lot of skills that I'd love to pass on to those that need a little help or are looking to learn more.
I'm very excited to start working one-on-one with students to help them learn. Everyone learns differently and the traditional classroom setting often isn't the best way for many students to learn. I love using analogies to explain concepts, especially if I can tie into something that my student is passionate about. For example, I've used tap dance references and analogies to help teach Algebra.
My personality is calm, honest, loyal, and a little silly. OK, maybe more than a little silly. I try to keep the atmosphere light and relaxed as I think this is the best way to learn. I am, of course, also sure to redirect distractions, and quickly get back on topic so that we get work done. As long as my student is putting in their best effort and truly invested in learning, I will put in boatloads of time and effort to ensure we achieve the learning goals while maintaining a happy and healthy learning environment.
