After 21 years of school I have experience both as a student and as a tutor.
I have been tutoring formally and informally since high school, where I would help friends and members of my scout troop who needed a little help with some of their subjects. I also helped some prepare for standardized tests like the SAT, I have always had a knack for standardized tests and was willing to share my insights, mindset, and methods that helped me get a 34 on the ACT as a high school freshman and a 1550 on the SAT as a junior (back when it was out of 1600 before the third section was added), one question away from a perfect score.
In college at Auburn University I was asked to be one of the paid tutors employed by the college of engineering with regular office hours so any student from the college could schedule time with tutors who the professors and administration considered to be the best students and most responsible individuals. I helped many struggling students stay in engineering and make it through their weed out courses. Courses that I tutored included: Calculus I II III, Physics I II, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Circuits, Digital Logic, Linear Signals and Systems, Digital Electronics, Analog Electronics, Fundamentals of Electromagnetics, Random Signals and Systems, Power Engineering, Control Systems, and Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering. Outside of my job with the college of engineering I tutored the physics courses: Intermediate Mechanics, Introductory Quantum Physics & Relativity, Intermediate Electricity and Magnetism, Statistical Thermodynamics, and Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics.
I graduated with two degrees, Electrical Engineering and Physics, both Magna Cum Laude. I was voted by the faculty of the college of engineering to be the top student to represent the college at the graduation ceremony as graduation marshall (Auburn's equivalent to valedictorian).
After graduation I spent a year in China where I taught English as a Second Language at the Wuhan Institute of Technology.
Working in as an engineer in Aerospace/Defense I taught internal professional development courses on the Python programming language for the company I worked for.
In graduate school in Memphis at Harding School of Theology I have helped students here proofreading papers, helped with learning of ancient Greek, and better study methods.
In my varied experience tutoring and teaching others I have had to adapt to students various goals, learning styles, education levels, and preferences.
If you think that I can help you please contact me for a tutoring session!
