About Manuela

I am a scientist in the Earth Science field. I've earned my PhD at UCLA in civil engineering and I've completed my bachelor and master in engineering at the university of Padova, in Italy.

During my PhD I had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant for multiple civil engineering and computer science classes, but I have been tutoring students in math/science/calculus my entire life.

What I really enjoy about tutoring is being able to transmit my love for math/science to students that often considered these subjects as their endless nightmares.

My challenge for when I tutor/teach is making students enjoy the subject they struggle with.
Only if they start understating it they start enjoying it and they start succeeding on it.

The subjects I tutor the most are math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.
But I am available to help also on physics and all technical subjects a civil engineer needs (e.g. construction science, topography, mechanics, etc.).

I am also available for tutoring in Italian, as this is my native language!

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to touch base on starting a tutor session with me.

Many thanks.

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.

Civil Engineering

I have received my BS and MS degrees in civil engineering at the university of Padova (Italy) on 2003 and 2005.

I have finished my second MS and a PhD degree in civil engineering In December 2013 from the university of California, Los Angeles.

I have worked part-time as a consultant in a construction company for the summer months during my BS degree.

I have tutored statics and dynamics (abc classes of structured engineering), and hydraulics during my BS and MS in Italy.

Fortran

I am available for tutoring programming subjects such as Fortran.
I have been a Fortran user for 10 years. I use this language on a daily basis on my own work. I have taken several programming classes and previously helped coworkers and students with their own codes. I feel strong in the subject and feel confident I can help WyzAnt students who need help with their own codes.

MATLAB

I am a PhD student in civil engineering and I use MATLAB on a daily basis. I feel I own the subject. In fact, I use MATLAB for my scientific research, for post-processing and analyzing data. Moreover, every year I TA for several undergrad classes at UCLA that requires the use of MATLAB, I am usually holding a 2 hour MATLAB tutorial at the beginning of each quarter, so that students attending the class can all be on the same MATLAB application level.

Terrific hydrology tutor!!! — I was on the verge of failing my surface water hydrology course in the spring semester of my senior year of college. Not good. I searched for tutors knowledgeable in this specific civil engineering discipline, and was fortunate to find Manuela on Wyzant. She has a Ph.D. in Hydrology form UCLA, and recently moved to Maryland to work at NASA, i.e. she's one smart lady! Hydrology courses tend to ...
