I'm 30, received my BS from Iowa State University in Civil Engineering in 2006, and currently work as a civil engineer (I am a licensed PE and LEED AP BD+C). I tutored friends in college in Math, Science, Physics, Engineering Economics, and other engineering related classes. I have also spent time tutoring a middle school student in English literature, math and science. My strongest subject is obviously math, but I enjoy multiple subjects. I like to meet with students, and their parents if young, and discuss goals and then get to know the student's learning style. I greatly enjoy helping people learn and get excited about how they will apply what they learn to their real world career later on.
I spent about 10 years studying classical piano with an instructor and the last 10 playing for enjoyment. I have had one long term student whom I instructed and some short term students who I spent time assisting with technique.
I took a formal class in AutoCAD in college, but more importantly I have been using AutoCAD for civil engineering work for the last 4 years in my profession. I predominantly utilize it for site drawings, grading, earthwork with LDD, and other elevation and volume calculations.
I graduated with a BS in CE from Iowa State University in 2006. Since then I have worked for two different private consulting companies. I currently work for R.W. Beck as a civil/environmental engineer.
My experience includes Land Development (commercial development and redevelopment planning, site layout, grading, drainage, utilities, permitting, storm water pollution prevention, report writing, LEED certification, etc), Water Resources (H&H for commercial development, single structures and comprehensive planning, Programs:stormSHED, HydroCAD, HEC-RAS), and Solid Waste (landfill planning, design, and permitting).
I am a LEED AP BD+C and I will be sitting for my PE Oct, 2010.
I began lessons at age 8 studying for 2 years on level type books. I then studied for 7 years under the pianist for the MN orchestra and 1 year private study in college. I have spent the last 8 years playing for my own enjoyment. I had one student for a couple of years whom I taught out of lesson books and others that I simply tutored in technique, fingerings and practice methods. I am willing to work with whatever type of instruction you need.
Excellent Tutor — Sarah is an excellent tutor and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Not only did she guide me through difficult math problems, she invested time building my confidence and providing study tips/habits that worked for her. She successfully passed the Civil PE so I appreciated how she leveraged her personal experiences to guide our study sessions. The first day we met, she helped me build a study ...
