My goal is to help students succeed in school and encourage them to pursue studies in engineering or science. I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and extensive practical experience from a career of working in exciting fields such as space satellites and laser weapons. As a result, I am well versed in the mathematics, statistics, and physics disciplines. I have been tutoring with WyzAnt for almost four years and have enjoyed it immensely. Some of my students have told me that I was the best tutor they have ever had.
All my students have shown improvement. My personal experience is that when a student is having trouble understanding a subject it is generally because the teaching material is not tailored to their individual learning style. This is not unusual in the classroom because the instructor has many students and does not have the time to focus on the individual. My approach is to identify each student's learning capability and adapt my tutoring to fit their style and needs. During my time with WyzAnt I have assembled significant supplemental learning aids in each subject and typically spend significant time prior to a session further tailoring easy to comprehend material to help my students more readily grasp the topic at hand.
The grade levels of my students has ranged from freshmen in high school to college. Their motivations are quite varied and range from just wanting to pass the course to serious interest in advanced placement and college classes. Consequently, the performance ability and need of each student is different. I have been able to help them all and believe I can help you too.
