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.
