Just when you thought there is no light at the end of the tunnel, you have access to someone experienced and readily available to help.
One that has been there and done that, I am an Engineering Professional able to assist in getting over those intimidating high hurdles and to navigate through seemingly insurmountable subject matter. I have tutored individuals of all ages and abilities using visualization tools to solve the most difficult problems in math and science. Learning mathematics for many can seem like a daunting task - similar to learning a new language from a different culture in a foreign land. I will act as translator and navigator enabling you to get there by your own accord. I currently hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA where I graduated with honors.

Excellent understanding and explanation of material

One tutoring session so far but definitely helpful with getting me on board in understanding the architectural engineering problems I was having trouble with. Great!
