About Qais


Bio

Hello, I'm Qais (pronounced 'Kass'). I work as an engineer in the renewable energy field, building commercial and industrial solar and energy storage projects. I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and recently finished my M.S. in Environmental Engineering and Science, part-time, from JHU as well. I'm very excited about what I do, and am on track to be a licensed Professional Engineer in the next year.

Hello, I'm Qais (pronounced 'Kass'). I work as an engineer in the renewable energy field, building commercial and industrial solar and energy storage projects. I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and recently finished my M.S. in Environmental Engineering and Science, part-time, from JHU as well. I'm very excited about what I do, and am on track to be a licensed Professional Engineer in the next year.

I've worked with middle school and high school students for a while, in Baltimore and in Western Maryland where I live. I'm hoping to be able to help out anyone who needs extra support understanding math concepts, using my own experiences and the benefit of being able to apply math hands-on in the real world, something that makes all the concepts so much more intuitive.

I have experience with tutoring High School Maths like Algebra, Geometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, and SAT Math, as well as experience with college level maths in a typical engineering curriculum including Vector Calculus, Differential Equations and the GREs. Through work and school I have experience with engineering fundamentals such as Thermodynamics, Fluids, Statics and Dynamics, as well as working experience with Electrical Engineering.

I teach the same way I learn, through real world examples. I prefer using textbooks and example problems as a reference, but the best way to learn any math is to apply it in the real world. When I tutored high school students, we focused on the real application first, then the math, such as throwing a ball, and then talking about algebra and geometry, or why a roof should be a triangle or a rectangle, and then learn about geometry. As the math get more complex, the examples get more realistic! I find that this method makes the concepts intuitive.

I'm here to help anyone who needs it, and am always trying to improve my own skills and knowledge base. Please reach out and I will respond as quickly as possible. Feel free to contact me with any questions or for lessons.
