About Seth


Bio

I have gotten to tutor students over a wide age range in the past 10 years. While in high school, I tutored a few middle school students and some fellow high school students. Math was always my favorite subject and, fittingly, I tutored these students mostly in math classes, ranging from basic multiplication and long division, up to calculus. Most recently, as a part of my graduate studies, I got to be a teaching assistant for a couple of engineering college classes. As a part of my...

I have gotten to tutor students over a wide age range in the past 10 years. While in high school, I tutored a few middle school students and some fellow high school students. Math was always my favorite subject and, fittingly, I tutored these students mostly in math classes, ranging from basic multiplication and long division, up to calculus. Most recently, as a part of my graduate studies, I got to be a teaching assistant for a couple of engineering college classes. As a part of my assistantship, I held office hours where I would tutor students and help them work through the assignments.

In each of these experiences, the most rewarding part was always seeing the moment when a concept clicks inside a student's brain. I love to see the sense of accomplishment they feel once they've finally mastered the problem or the concept that they had been struggling with. I often considered becoming a teacher during my time in academia but decided to go down the more industrial route of becoming an engineer, which I also thoroughly enjoy. However, I've realized that there's no reason I can't do a little bit of both, and that's the reason I'm here today. I hope I can use what I've learned to help you too.

As a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, I've had to take many different math classes and I've had a wide variety of teachers and professors with different teaching styles. Through those classes, I've learned a lot of different ways to teach math, ways to approach problems, and what makes certain mathematical concepts more tricky than others. I've also seen how mathematical concepts, from basic math to algebra to calculus and differential equations can be applied to real-world problems. This allows me to take abstract concepts in math and put them into real examples that can be useful if you are a visual/conceptual learner, like myself.

I always loved math, and physics was the first class I can remember taking where math, beyond basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, became very useful. I loved it so
