About Geriel

I'm Geriel E.M., a 36 year old female with a true passion for mathematics, science and engineering. I have been tutoring for over 15 years now and have had great success with my students, ranging from middle school to college-age, and non-traditional students.

I began tutoring by helping other students in my high school classes. In college, I worked as a private math, biology and engineering tutor with the School of Engineering at the University of Connecticut. I was then hired by the UConn Athletic Department to help fellow student athletes maintain high GPA's and academic eligibility. Subjects ranged from remedial algebra, geometry, trigonometry, to calculus, biology, and calculus-based physics.

In graduate school, I instructed undergraduate courses in Statics and Dynamics, and Fluid Mechanics and Bio-Heat Transfer. I also, taught students about introductory biomedical engineering and developed an entrepreneur series workshop. In 2005, I took a position with the tutoring company ‘TutorFind’ where I worked one-on-one with High school in math and science and College students helping with homework, preparing students for exams, and lots of SAT, ACT, and GRE math and readding test preparation.

I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging math problems. I challenge my students to doing multiple math examples so that they became very comfortable solving many different problems; which encourages student to build their confidence after getting the solution to the math problem on their own. I find that students become more happy if they can solve math problems in ways, style/terms or language that is most natural to them. I also like to apply math to real world situations to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing and using math in their everyday lives.

What I love most about tutoring is seeing the big smiles and positive feedback I receive from my students when they share with me their "OMG moments!" Ms. E., thank you so much for helping me, I finally understand how to solve this math problem or I received an "A" on my math test today. or " Thank you for making math so much fun and easier to understand."

Most students say that I am fun teacher and tutor because they are able to understand math problems in ways that is easiest or natural for them to remember. I enjoy giving students constructive feedback for their courses and mentoring them by providing study skills and advice on how to learn better or more effectively during their tutoring sessions. I also provide resources and share my real-life experiences as a Research scientist and engineer for math problems that relate to these disciplines. Most of my students always credit me as being an “Excellent Practical Tutor/Teacher who cares about her students”. These experiences have built my confidence and interest in tutoring more students because teaching and helping students to succeed is my passion.

I am excited to tutor with Wyzant Tutoring because I enjoy tutoring and mentoring students to help them build their confidence in learning and succeeding in their courses and passing their exams. Please contact me about any questions you may have! I look forward to working with you to reaching your GPA and test score goals!

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.

Electrical Engineering

I have a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering and have tutored over 100 mechanical and electrical engineering undergraduate and graduate students. I have taught the following electrical and mechanical engineering courses (Circuits I and II, Introduction to Electrical Engineering, Signal Processing, Statics and Dynamics for Mechanical Engineers, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Biomechanics) at both UConn and UMBC for a combination of 3 years or 12 academic semesters and I currently teach ME 321: Mechanical Experimentation II at George Mason University which involves both electrical and mechanical measurement systems and instrumentation.
