About Dylan

My name is Dylan B. I graduated from Georgia Tech in May, 2015 with B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I have a thorough understanding of various math and science subjects as well as English grammar and writing. I understand that math and science are challenging subjects, and I have a passion for helping students understand them - not only so they can get the grade, but also so they are better equipped for their future in the subjects. I took and made A's in several subjects at Georgia Tech, including Calculus I, II, and III, differential equations, physics I and II, and several engineering specific classes.

I have a passion for math and science and how it relates to the world around us. Nothing is more fulfilling to me than seeing the look on students' faces when the material finally clicks and they truly understand it. I have tutored fellow students at Georgia Tech for four semesters, so I have a lot of experience in tutoring the most difficult of subjects, as well as getting to know the student and explaining things in the best way for them to understand it.

Before I was able to become a certified tutor at Tech, I had to take and pass a class about tutoring. Each week, we analyzed our experiences tutoring that week and discussed ways to help the students more effectively. We were also taught to analyze students' learning styles (as well as our own) so we could shape our sessions around these styles.

Education is one of the most important and time-consuming aspects of a young person's life. The lessons learned, both school related and real-world related, will provide a foundation for life, so it is important to me to help students' succeed.

I am extremely confident in my abilities as a tutor, and it is my hope that after reading this you will be too. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Drums

I have played the drums for 6 years. I have played with several guitarists, one of whom has since joined a band that plays metal, and one of whom has released a country EP. I played several songs with the latter throughout the summer, and I am extremely comfortable with many genres, including rock, country, jazz, and metal.

Mechanical Engineering

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering in the top 1% of my class with a 3.81 GPA.
