All of Nels’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Nels’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Chemical Engineering

I hold a BS in Chem E (GPA 3.7) with minors in Mathematics and Material Science Engineering. I was a tutorial instructor and a grader during two years in a course of Material and Energy Balances; my notes on this subject were used by graders at the University of Washington and at Washington State University. I was a grader and tutor for a Physical Chemistry course for which I wrote segments of the solutions manual and errata in the first edition of the text.

I've constructed, researched, and presented biological fuel cells. I've presented a fuel-cell powered car at a national AIChE conference. I've researched and presented UREX designs. I've worked for Boeing PhantomWorks on fuel tank anti-corrosive agents. I edited Montana State University's Biofilms book. I've made biodiesel. My report on distillation columns resulted in Washington State University's Chem E department modifying their distillation column content, reflux bulb volume, and thermocouples. My report on the challenges of crystalline fuel cell operation resulted in a redirection of thousands of research dollars away from such projects.

Differential Equations

I received an A in differential equations from Washington State University in a course taught by Alex Khapalov, who publishes papers about differential equations. I have a minor in mathematics and have used differential equations in a variety of theoretical and practical applications: physical chemistry, transport phenomenon, electric devices, chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and system controls. I have over 50 hours of experience tutoring students in areas of calculus, including differential equations.

Economics

Without books, I aced both my first and second (all of my) economics classes, introductory macroeconomics and intermediate microeconomics. I read Mises' "Human Action," joined an economics readers' group, and led economics group discussions. I helped three Masters' students navigate econ courses, at UW and MIT.

Electrical Engineering

I passed the military intelligence electronics specialist course quite quickly. I received a 3.7 or higher in my electrical engineering / electronic devices courses at Washington State University.

I have used electrical engineering principles in a variety of theoretical and practical applications: fluid flow, transport phenomenon, and electric devices. I constructed, researched, and presented biological fuel cells. I presented a fuel-cell powered car at a national engineering conference. I wired three buildings with design and application methods according to electrical engineering principles.

I have over 50 hours of experience tutoring students in areas of electrics and electronics including electrical engineering.

Logic

I studied logic at Bellevue College in high school. I have tutored several logic students. I maintain my proficiency with quiz questions from a math website. I studied a variety of fields while pursuing my degree in Chemical Engineering.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry was covered in my high school. When I attended Washington State University, I was placed directly into O-Chem; where I earned A's in lecture and lab. Immediately following the class, I was selected by the WSU Chem department to be an O-chem peer-tutor (a tutorial instructor).

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
