About Adam

Five years ago, I began teaching in Houston, Texas at a Prep Public School. This has been a wonderfully rewarding decision, as I have always enjoyed tutoring and working together with fellow students on projects. Now that my fiancee is a grad student at FSU, I work as an engineer for the state. On weekends, I return to my passion of tutoring students in Math, Science, Engineering and Computer Science areas.

My experience in the classroom and my own high rigor college program (Mechanical Engineering at Rice University) means that I can help set you or your student up for success! Let's start tracking their progress today.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am qualified to tutor mechanical engineering because I have attained a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University, which is a rigorous program. After that program, I took the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, which is the first step to becoming a professional engineer, and passed on its pass/fail system. To ensure I haven't lost my skills after 4 years as a teacher, I studied and took the FE exam again this past spring, and passed once more!

Study Skills

In my 4 years as a middle school teacher, I have taught students study skills as part of my course by providing unique assignments that I designed myself to teach primarily the content but also study skills. I have incorporated study skills more this previous year by advocating and then running a study hall for my 8th graders where we pick a subject that has an upcoming assignment or test and learning an appropriate study tool for that subject/assignment. I have also practiced many methods of incorporating study methods into alternative homework assignments to increase student ownership of the study method.
