I am a young structural engineer working in the offshore oil industry. I completed my masters degree from A&M in December 2010 and have been working in Houston since. In the evenings and weekends, I moonlight as a tutor, specializing in math and science courses. I offer tutoring in a multitude of subjects, but specialize in high school and college level mathematics, physics, chemistry, and statistics. I have been tutoring on and off for a decade and can help you or your student through these often challenging courses. Depending on your location, I can come directly to your home or meet at a library, coffee shop, etc.

I've worked with students throughout the Houston area, including areas such as Bellaire, Rice, Memorial, Westchase, Sugar Land, Katy, Richmond, and many others.

My cancellation policy is that a lesson must be cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled time. For a lesson cancelled within 24 hours, I may charge a missed lesson fee equal to one-half of the lesson cost, though I may waive this at my digression. For no-shows, I will charge a missed lesson fee equal to the cost of the session.

Algebra 1

I offer tutoring in every math class from pre-algebra through differential equations. I have tutored students in mathematics ranging in ages from middle school to university. To me, simple algebra is beyond trivial. I not only have a mastery of the material, but experience in explaining it to students with a variety of learning styles.

Algebra 2

Algebra I and II are trivial to me. I have taken and tutored a great many mathematics courses, and algebra II is one of the simpler courses that I can tutor.

American History

While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP American History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.

Astronomy

Astronomy and cosmology are two of the subjects closest to my heart. Carl Sagan is my hero. Whether you need to grasp stellar nucleosynthesis or just what the hell the Big Bang is, I can help you learn about the grand nature of the cosmos.

Calculus

I have studied calculus, tutored calculus, and applied it to real-world design problems. I took AP Calculus AB and BC in high school, and scored fives on both exams. At university, I took Calculus III, differential equations, and numerous upper level engineering courses that involved applying basic calculus.

Chemistry

Chemistry is one of my strongest subjects. I have tutored numerous students at high school, community college, and university level chemistry. Back in high school, I took AP Chemistry and scored a 5 on the AP exam. As part of my engineering education, I gained further mastery of this material and the mathematics behind it.

Civil Engineering

I have a bachelors and a masters degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M, the school that educates the majority of the civil engineers in the state of Texas. I'm a licensed EIT in the state and current work as a structural engineer.

Elementary Science

I have an immensely broad background in and knowledge of the elementary sciences. From geology to meteorology, geology, physics, biology, chemistry, cosmology, etc. I have a grasp of the basics of most all elementary sciences.

European History

While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP European History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.

Finite Math

Finite math covers an assortment of topics including solving systems of equations through matrices, linear programming and optimization, probability, and basic statistics. As part of my engineering education and background, I have a solid knowledge and experience with each of these subjects. I have tutored many students in these subjects and their applications. As such, I am well qualified to tutor any student struggling with a finite mathematics course.

Geometry

Geometry comes naturally to me. I'm a classically trained civil engineer. From the balance of forces to surveying, so much of what I do in my career involves applied geometry. I have experience tutoring students in geometry and can help any student in this subject.

Physical Science

I have an immensely broad background in and knowledge of the physical sciences. From geology to meteorology, geology, physics, biology, chemistry, cosmology, etc. I have a grasp of the basics of most all physical sciences.

Physics

I offer tutoring in middle school through university level physics courses. I am an engineer. My field is essentially applied physics. Whether the course involves classical Newtonian, electromagnetism, or special relativity, I have no difficulty guiding a student through these physics courses. In high school, I took AP Physics and earned a 5 on the test.

Prealgebra

This is the first named mathematics course that most students take. I have tutored young students in math such as this and will no difficulty doing it again.

TAKS

TAKS is a standardized test offered to students in Texas. I've helped numerous students with this before, just usually working with the test requirements and giving lessons on material accordingly. The material is the same as the standard high school math and other courses I tutor regularly.

Trigonometry

This is another math course that I am very experienced with, through my education, through tutoring, and through direct professional application.

World History

While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP World History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.

We're so glad we found her! — Our 11th grade student was having a hard time transitioning to a new school and a new town, and some of her grades reflected this, including Chemistry. We realized it was necessary to find a tutor immediately as there were tests coming up and homework due and there was no time to mess around trying to muddle through the text book and "negotiate" due dates with the teacher. It was especially not he ...
