Michigan State University (Mech. Engineering)
University of Michigan (PhD)
I have several years of experience tutoring students primarily in Math, Physics, and Engineering at the college level. I am available to tutor Math and Physics at the high school level as well. I have a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University and am currently pursuing a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. In addition, I have about three and a half years of experience working in industry as an engineer.
I love to see students improve through our tutoring sessions. I'll focus on getting students to understand the concepts behind each topic and problem, rather than just learning how to solve specific problems. I believe a strong understanding of these concepts leads to much greater success in these types of subjects.
Through my engineering degrees and experience, I have gained extensive experience in physics and mathematics (particularly in calculus), particularly as they pertain to engineering applications. In addition, I've spent substantial amounts of time writing code in MATLAB (which I do on a daily basis), modeling in ProEngineer, and using standard Microsoft Office programs.

My son has only seen him once so far, but thought he was very helpful helping him catch up with AP Physics mechanics.
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.
I have a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering. Many of the courses are crossover in the first few years of mechanical and civil engineering degrees, so I am able to provide assistance in such courses given my background.
I received a 4.0 in my undergraduate differential equations course. I continue to apply what I have learned regularly in graduate school. In addition, I took a graduate level math course which covered portions of ordinary differential equation theory.
As a part of my undergraduate degree, I was required to take a course in MATLAB (in which I received a 4.0). I have used MATLAB on a nearly daily basis since starting graduate school a year and a half ago and have become very competent with it.
I am capable of tutoring the physics portion of the MCAT. While an undergraduate, I tutored several students in this topic. I also taught a two day course covering the physics portion of the MCAT through the MSU Learning Resource Center.
I have a B.S. in mechanical engineering and am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in ME as well. I will have my M.S. requirements completed within this year. I graduated from Michigan State University with a 3.93 GPA in the subject. In addition, I currently instruct students in a mechanical engineering class as a part of my Ph.D. program.
