BS - University of South Florida (Civil Engineering)
I graduated USF with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in the winter of 2013. I have 1 year experience as a tutor from working for the USF Department of Mathematics as a STEM Tutor when I was a student there. While employed there my responsibility was to tutor precalculus to calculus II and Physics I and Physics II in a group setting. Math and science are subjects that are very dear to me so i get excited when I get to nerd out and teach them.
My style of teaching focuses on making sure the student understands the underlying principles of the subject rather than merely memorizing charts of information. After discussing the principles (or rules, laws, theorems, etc.) I will guide the student as they do some example problems so they can learn the how to apply those principles to example problems. I find this method to be the most effective technique for developing critical thinking skills and ensuring the student truly understands what they are doing with the numbers on the page and what it means.
Currently I work full time as a design engineer and only available after work hours on weekdays and varying times on weekends. I will require any student to email me some of the current coursework that they need help with so I can review that specific section of the subject and come prepared. I want you to get the most out on what you pay for and this is how I make sure your time and money isn't wasted. I require a 4 hour cancellation notice prior to the beginning of a session for cancellations.
I have taken and passed all math courses up to calculus 3 and differential equations. My specialities in teaching calculus however i can teach algebra, geometry, and trigonometry as well. I have tutored the subject at length before and know that what gets most students is the chain rule and/or integrals/antiderivatives, particularly when combined with trigonometric functions or logarithms.
Physics is my favorite subject of choice. As an engineer my work involves the application of the principles and rules taught in newtonian physics on a daily basis so I know this subject like the back of my hand. I prefer to teach physics 1 but can teach physics 2 on request.

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.
