About Chacha

Hi! My name is Jacqueline, but everyone calls me Chacha. I graduated in June 2014 with a bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and focused in Business and Design from MIT. Currently I'm in a master's program at MIT called Integrated Design and Management through Sloan (the business school here). I have tutored kids as young as 9 and adults as old as... well, celebrating their 20th anniversary of turning 35. ;)

Areas I'm very comfortable in: pretty much any math you can encounter in elementary, middle school, high school up through BC Calculus. I also know Differential Equations. As a mechanical engineer, I'm also very comfortable with any physics a student might encounter elementary through high school including first year Mechanics here at MIT (rotating reference frames get a little confusing, but they're fun!). Likewise, as an engineer and because of my focus in Business, I am very very comfortable with presentation prep (slides, public speaking, how to interact in the business setting, etc.). I prefer in-person tutoring though I am happy to help online as well if needed. My program has trained me in the specialty of design thinking, so any project, product, or design related and I'm happy to help.

For fun: I like to learn new languages (studied Spanish, Italian, French in high school, and Chinese while at MIT-- though sadly I'm not fluent in any of them, still fun to practice!). I LOVE anything food related (pics, cooking, baking, eating...) and actually studied cooking in Italy during the summer and then worked as sous-chef in an Italian restaurant back home in CA. I'm also a fan of the TV Show Psych, anything with cats, and fantasy football...

Hope I can help you! Have a great day!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Handwriting

I had a very strict teacher in elementary school about handwriting and routinely write in cursive. I have been complimented on my penmanship before. I am also comfortable correcting standard print or non-cursive handwriting.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a Bachelor's from MIT in Mechanical Engineering and about to start my Master's in Integrated Design and Management which is part engineering and part business.
