About Donald

I am a licensed Professional Engineer and have lived in this area for more than thirty years.
My favorite course in high school was trigonometry, but I also enjoyed geometry, algebra, and all of my English courses. As a mechanical engineer, I've been trained to proceed in a logical step-by-step method toward a solution and I try to work with my students to first promote their thinking about and understanding some base processes.

I try to teach in a logical and straightforward manner to create a foundational understanding of the material using plenty of questions and examples. Once this understanding exists, it will build confidence and further understanding to enable solutions of even higher-level problems.

Having a thorough understanding of the materials allows me to customize problems to demonstrate the usage of the subject matter in many situations. This allows the student to see the practicality of the subject matter and that it exists in the real world and not just in their math books.

My father stressed the importance of correct grammar, and I suppose I can credit him more than any of my school teachers for my abilities to write and to speak. I would like to teach people that there are times for the contractions you're and they're and that apostrophes are generally used in contractions and to show possession.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Mechanical Engineering

I graduated from an ABET-approved university several years ago and have been working since then almost continually as a mechanical engineer. I am a state-licensed professional mechanical engineer. I passed the Machine-Design concentration version of the Professional Engineering exam in 2006 when I took the test.
