University of Minnesota (Mechanical Engineeri)
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have worked in industry for more than 10 years. I passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and have my EIT. I am currently (patiently) waiting on the results of my Professional Engineering exam. Since I recently took that exam, my knowledge was recently refreshed from months of study on most general and mechanical engineering topics.
I have always enjoyed math and use it daily in my career as an engineer. In college, I took four semesters of calculus and engineering coursework ranging from general mechanical engineering, motion control, thermodynamics and programming, scoring quite well across the board. In my career I regularly need to break down engineering principles to non-technical people. Another role of my job is to teach an eight hour beginners course to educate customers about the theory and application of our products. In my personal life, I have enjoyed volunteering at various science and technology activities for students - lego robots are a personal favorite!
Whatever level you are at I can work with you to get you to the level you want to be. I am patient and try to make the experience fun by using examples that anyone can easily understand. I know that to master these subjects a great deal of background knowledge must be accumulated. I will never assume that you already know something and if we need to go back to form a solid foundation that is what I will do for you.
I'm proud of what I have accomplished as an engineer. I attribute my success to three things. 1. My natural curiosity about how things work and the desire to make cool things to solve real world problems. 2. All the great teachers I have had throughout my life including my dad. Finally, 3. Thousands of hours working practice problems, most of which I didn't immediately understand. If you want to be an engineer it will be tough, but the difficulties make the success taste sweeter. I would not only help you learn the equations and solve the problems, I will encourage you though those tough times because I have been there.

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.
