I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering. I am a teacher's assistant at a middle school. My passion is teaching students mathematics, from algebra to calculus. My goal as a tutor is to show students that math is doable and enjoyable. By teaching them the tools they need to solve simple and complex problems, I help students move forward in math with a strong foundation. As a tutor I am dedicated to building this foundation with my students so that they may apply what they have learned to future math courses.
Because I have a degree in Civil Engineering, I understand the nature of math and what is needed to solve seemingly difficult and complicated math problems. I know how to approach complex problems, and more importantly how to teach these approaches to students. I believe that students who are intimidated by math can develop the skills necessary for successfully completing their math courses.
I know how overwhelming math can be, but I can help students approach their homework and exams with confidence in their comprehension and ability. I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering.

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.
As an engineer, Algebra I is included in every aspect of solving mathematical problems. I have been working as a teacher assistant for 7th and 8th grade students, on a daily basis.
Algebra II is an extremely important step in mathematics. It is the last bridge to cross, for every student, who is looking forward to Pre-calculus. I know that from my own experience and by working with students from 8th grade to college. It is very crucial to understand functions, exponents, factoring, simplifying and solving equations with multiple variables.
Calculus is the foundation for every scientific major, or scientific aspects to it. Almost every subject in engineering depended on a strong understanding in calculus. Also, I am always taking refreshing courses. 2013-2014 I attended Raritan Valley Community College, where I took Calculus I, Calculus II, Linear Algebra. Between 2015-2016 I attended Thomas Edison University, where I took Calculus III, A History of Mathematics, College Geometry, and Linear Algebra.
As an engineer, I had to study Geometry in depth; Problem solving , Geometric shapes and Measurement. Formal Synthetic Euclidean Geometry. Parallel lines and Quadrilaterals. Alternate Approaches to Plane Geometry. Inequalities in Algebra and Geometry. Making proofs, Postulates, Theorems and Corollaries.
Also, I studied Non-Eucalidean Geometry and Taxi Cab Geometry.
Pre-Algebra is the foundation for the higher courses of mathematics. As an engineer, it is very important to understand this math course, because it opens the door to accomplish the Algebra course ahead and is necessary to be successful in it.
In addition to my education in Civil Engineering, I am constantly taking math courses to improve my skills in Precalculus and in the higher level of mathematics; RVCC, mathematics level 200; Calculus I, Calculus II and Linear Algebra.
Thomas Edison University, mathematics level 300- 400; Calculus III, A History of Mathematics, College Geometry and Linear Algebra.
