My academic background includes a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with more than 20 years of teaching experience teaching at college level. I received my B.S from the University of Louisiana Lafayette, and M.S. and Ph.D from LSU Baton rouge. My university teaching career has taken me to LSU, Southern University Baton rouge Penn state, Temple University, Community College of Philadelphia, and Cal State Fresno. During this period, I was honored to be selected on three separate occasions as teacher of the year.
I took advantage of my teaching position to research how students learn and began to develop methodologies proven to improve student performance. This led me to publish more than 10 papers detailing the pedagogical research I conducted and the techniques I developed to enhance the classroom learning experience. One of these publications, one won an international award for introducing innovative teaching methods in both classroom learning and curriculum development. A list of these pedagogical papers is available upon request.
In addition to university level teaching, I have been tutoring independently in person and online for more than 10 years. My teaching skills range from high school math and physics to college level (lower level for mechanical and civil, and upper level for mechanical engineering). On a high school level I am experienced in tutoring ACT (math), BMAT (math and physics) SAT (math), GRE (Math) ). My prep course has had measurable success where my students improve their score up to 40% from the time they start. Because of the high success rate, my fee for college level and prep courses are different than my default rate.
