Study Skills

I currently pursuing a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and focus in the area of thermal/fluid sciences. Through out my career as a tutor (~8 years) I have worked with many different types of students. However, when it comes to study skills, I find that most students don't learn great study skills by the time they can reap the benefits of it. Great study skills come down to two different process for the mathematics and physical sciences. Practice exams for pretest studying and focusing on understanding during homework reviews. These are the strategies I emphasize with my students and have seen great benefits for those that apply them.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have several years of multiple level mathematics tutoring experience at Lower Columbia College. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and have had to use algebra as the basis for any engineering problem I have ever had to solve. I have extensive experience solving these types of problems, as well as, helping others understand them.
Calculus,

Calculus

As a graduate level student in Mechanical Engineering, I have to use calculus level thinking in my daily life. I have completed several above calculus level courses including differential equations, linear algebra, and advanced engineering mathematics (essentially, a advanced combination of linear algebra and differential equations). In addition, my field of thermal/fluid sciences is a mathematically complicated field and I have many successes in these classes as well. Furthermore, my primary clients are students that plan to or who are majoring in a technical degree programs, with that in mind I often include practical science applications in my lessons. This, in my opinion, offers the student insight into what to expect for their future studies and the importance of the subject matter as a prerequisite to their future career.
Geometry,

Geometry

I am a recent Mechanical Engineering Graduate, preparing for grad school. During my studies as a mechanical engineering student, I used many of the properties being learned in high school geometry on a daily basis. I am very comfortable with these subjects, additionally, I received a score of 100% on the Wyzant Geometry Test.
Physics,

Physics

I have Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and graduated Cum Laude (3.51/4.00 GPA), as well as, have an Undergraduate Research Publication published in the Applied Physics Journal. Additionally, I am currently applying to graduate school for Fall of 2016 and plan to focus on energy systems in mechanical engineering.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I tutored Mathematics professionally for 2 years at the community college level. Unofficially, I have been tutoring mathematics for additional 3 years with friends and family members. I have a passion for the subject and helping others master it.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

As an experienced mathematics educator, most of my clients that have requested calculus tutoring did not actually have a problem understanding fundamental calculus concepts. Their issue was nearly always not having a mastery of college level algebra and trigonometry prior to starting their study of calculus. The study of mathematics is very incremental and requires great understanding of building blocks before each concept in order to be able to properly learn the next. This is where Precalculus comes in. Precalculus normally does not teach much new material to students, rather it allows you to dive a bit deeper and wider into previously learned topics in algebra and trigonometry. This course, while not always demonstrated in such a way, is meant to finely hone your algebra and trigonometry skills, to allow for you to focus on purely calculus concepts when you arrive to them. If you are not fully confident in your mastery of algebra and trigonometry, taking this course and/or receiving tutoring around this course material is highly recommended.

Mechanical Engineering

I am a PhD student in the Mechanical Engineering department at the Georgia Institute of Technology, I work on heat transfer applications for thermal management and characterization of electronics. I recently completed my MSME and in that role I conducted novel Thermal Engineering research and published multiple journal papers in the Applied Physics Letters and the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer. In addition, I have been providing educational services in some form for nearly a decade (primarily in the mathematics and sciences). My knowledge and background makes me best suited to assist with lower division Mechanical Engineering courses such as: statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, as well as upper division courses such as: fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer. My primary expertise is in the Thermal Sciences. I have passed the rigorous heat transfer and thermodynamics qualifying exams at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Demonstrating my expertise in these subjects. Furthermore, I would also enjoy helping any students who are trying to navigate getting into a Mechanical Engineering PhD program.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry along with many other mathematics types is a fundamental tool used in the physical sciences and engineering. As a mechanical engineer these tools are extremely vital in nearly every core class in my undergraduate curriculum. Now as a graduate student (nearly completed my MSME) as well as a educator I enjoy bestowing the value of this tool on to up and coming science and engineering students. I have many years of experience not only using these tools myself but also teaching them to less experienced students.

College Counseling

I have spent nearly a decade of my life in college. Additionally, I plan to spend more if not the rest of my life navigating the college educational system, first as a graduate student and then as an academic. I have had many different positions at college campuses: research assistant, peer mentor, tutor, IT assistant, lab assistant, alternative high school program tutor/assistant, honor society information specialist. I would like to explain further my experience as a peer mentor and how that experience relates to college counseling. As a peer mentor at Lower Columbia College's Student Support Services Trio program I spent 2 years mentoring first year, first generation college students. Going into this position I knew first hand the trials and tribulations of first generation college student's as I was one myself. I was passionate about this position and I spent many hours with my mentees, helping them with homework, directing them to on campus services, and listening/advising them on their unique problems. My second year of peer mentoring, my role changed a bit as I was the only second year peer mentor and naturally became a mentor for the new peer mentors. This gave me great experience in a leadership role and helped me learn to not just give answers but to make my mentees think dynamically about their situations.

Extremely happy with Brian

Brian has been helping my son with his calculus. Brian seems extremely knowledgeable in the subject area and is able to explain his processes to my son. He has also helped evaluate some of the missing components to my sons skill set. Brian has also been helping me with some lacking math skills as I am an adult learner continuing my education for my employment. I look forward to having Brian assist my daughter as well in the area of math, as she will most likely need some assistance in that area as well. overall our family has been extremely happy with Brian and the job he is doing.
