Hello and I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I completed my PhD in nuclear engineering at Penn State. I have successfully instructed physics and several engineering courses at Penn State. During my undergraduate studies, I was employed by the university as a peer tutor for many of the mathematics, science, and engineering courses offered at the university.
Throughout my academic studies, I have tutored students of all ages to improved grades in the following areas: Physics, Chemistry, Algebra, Calculus, Trig, Geometry, Computer Programming (C++, FORTRAN, MATLAB), Statistics, and Engineering Principles (Statics, Dynamics, Fluid Flow, and Heat Transfer).
I am always willing to alter my methods to fit the learning methods and needs of each individual student. I am also experienced in tutoring group sessions.
I was taught AUTOCAD as part of my engineering curriculum. I have also utilized and successfully taught AutoCAD as a portion of the introduction to engineering course.
I played several years of basketball throughout my middle school and high school years and assisted with youth programs in my local community.
Throughout my academic career, I have learned and utilized programming skills in programming languages including C++, FORTRAN, PASCAL, VISUAL BASIC, and MATLAB. My most recent research has utilized FORTRAN and MATLAB extensively including creation and execution of several source code files for data processing and correlation verification.
I have experience with several versions of FORTRAN including, FORTRAN77, FORTRAN95, and Compaq Visual Fortran. My undergraduate and graduate theses included creation of several programs for post processing of data and additional analysis. These programs included I/O portions to enable multiple uses.
Throughout my academic career, I have learned and utilized skills in MATLAB including the use of the software and the creation of m file programs. My most recent research has utilized MATLAB extensively in data processing and graphical presentation of that data.
I have successfully tutored previous students in the key physical sciences subject areas of general chemistry and physics in preparation for MCAT testing. These students have performed well on this section of the MCAT.
I have a PhD in Nuclear Engineering with research focus in Thermal Hydraulics. I am currently an instructor of mechanical engineering technology.
I played several years of soccer in high school and assisted with youth soccer programs in my local community.
