I am a graduate Mechanical/Nuclear Engineering student at Virginia Tech. I have taught Mechanical Engineering students at Virginia Tech in addition to working with high school students around the Blacksburg area on test prep.
I am patient and easy going when it comes to teaching math and science. I remember how daunting the subjects seemed as a high school student, particularly when dealing with the ACT and SAT; however, I was fortunate enough to have great tutors and teachers available to help me get to where I am today. I want to offer bright young students the same help and support that I was fortunate enough to receive.
The best results come not from teaching to the test, but from teaching the student strategies for thinking and problem solving. Breaking a seemingly complicated problem down into simple steps helps students not only solve the problem, but understand the process behind the problem solving. My knowledge and experience allows me to guide the student to an understanding of the main concepts and techniques of a difficult topic.
I look forward to working with you!
