About Christopher

I'm a graduate of Purdue University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I've worked for more than 10 years as a design engineer for a large industrial equipment company. I've always loved exploring concepts in science and math, both professionally and as a hobby, and helping others improve their understanding of those areas.

Over the years, I've enjoyed supporting my friends, fellow students, and professional colleagues achieve their learning goals. I've tutored math in high school, provided competitive bicycle racing training consultation in college, have mentored new employees at work in a variety of design methods and software tools, have been shadowed by high school students interested in engineering as a career path, and have some experience teaching in a classroom setting.

With a background that has peaked at 300 level undergraduate math, along with producing CAD geometry in a professional setting for over a decade, I've practiced mathematics in a variety of forms nearly every day since I passed my AP Calculus exam in 2002. When teaching, I like to emphasize patience and practice. Because of it's logical nature, I truly believe that all are capable of grasping mathematical concepts, be they fundamental or complex.

My science background as a degreed, professional engineer cannot be understated. Physics, statics, dynamics, machine design, thermodynamics, heat & mass transfer, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics and many others comprise my classroom experience. Professionally, I have a lot of experience with CAD design as well as CFD and FEA. I also dabble in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology in my free time. I pride myself on being able to coherently explain and illustrate concepts surrounding physical science. I constantly look at the world around me with an analytical mind.

Whether you're looking to simply catch up or become a subject matter expert, I'd love to put in the time and effort to help shape you into the student you want to be. Please contact me to schedule a lesson.
