I am a state licensed professional engineer with Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University (top 10 US ranking) and have five years of mechanical systems engineering experience in the power industry.

Throughout my career I've always found ways to teach and give back to the technical community. At Purdue I taught undergraduate students and was responsible for laboratory, lecturing, and mentoring 30 students. Since then I have tutored undergraduates in one-on-one sessions at Purdue, Northwestern, UIC and local area high schools.

My approach is primarily concerned with identifying gaps in student knowledge, skills or study habits. In many cases students need help understanding the big picture of their courses. To address this I bring real-world experience to the table which I use to help to motivate and make relevant the problems presented to the student.

I also mentor students regarding professional and educational decisions (majors, course selection, college applications).

I live in the north side, work in the loop and commute by the CTA so I may be limited in my ability to travel. However I am available for online sessions as well.

Pay is negotiable as I am willing to negotiate based on commute, hours per week, or student age, subjects taught, etc.

Reach out if you are interested in the services of a young engineering professional.

Tutor what he taught me things i like helped me accomplish

Andrew S. is willing to go the extra mile to help me. He's taught me to develop a weekly-routine via google calendars, test-taking strategies, conflict-resolution, and understand the value of hard work in school. I like his promptness, enthusiasm, and overall knowledge. He's helped me accomplish completing my Real Estate Finance Case Study, prepare for my Business Calculus II Final, and organize my work-balance schedule. He's without a doubt one of the most well-rounded tutors on the market today.

Patient and knowledgeable

Andrew helped my son catch up on his precalculus lessons. He provided him with different ways to think about the problems and put them in terms he could understand more easily. This helped my son build the confidence he needed to get back on track and caught up on his studies. Thank you Andrew.

Fantastic Person and a Great Tutor

I am taking a college level heat transfer course as an undergrad and was seeking help for some extra lessons on the side. Andrew came through on such short notice and gave me the help that I needed to head into my exam with confidence. He explains things very well and is very knowledgeable. Much better I would guess than those old timers who haven't been in school for 30 years. I will definitely come back for help in the near future! On a side note, he responds to messages very quickly.
