About Lianne


Bio

As a lifelong learner myself, I enjoy helping others learn as well.
I have a B.S. in Physics from M.I.T. and an M.S. in Learning Sciences from Carnegie-Mellon University. I have worked as an engineer on medical equipment and as a contractor at NASA and Stanford University, where the real-world applications of the math, science, reading and writing skills come about in a variety of contexts; therefore, I like coming up with fun and creative ways to present and explain often-difficult concepts...

I also enjoy tutoring and teaching and have taught introduction to engineering at Foothill College and tutored pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus and elementary statistics at the PSME center, taught Algebra 2 as a substitute teacher at a private high school, and tutored middle and high school math, science, reading, and writing at a tutoring center. I have also served as an academic advisor to aspiring engineering students, mentored a student robotics team, and participated in efforts encouraging STE(A)M education and outreach to under-served high school students.

For private tutoring, I often start by getting acquainted, discussing learning objectives and goals and answering questions a student may have from their homework and school textbooks. As I get to know each student, I can then tailor subsequent lessons to their individual learning needs. I believe students are more motivated to learn by goals that mean something to him or her and in seeing examples of how what they're learning is used in the context of realistic situations. I can provide periodic assessments and progress reports and am open to feedback, as I'd like make sure I'm doing my job well for my clients. I have tutored students at the local library or am willing to travel to another location within a certain radius that may be more convenient.

I look forward to helping students discover and develop their talents and strengths and encouraging them to work to the best of their abilities for the
