I recently finished a second master's degree in engineering and am looking for regular tutees in the area.
As far as my experience with teaching goes, I tutored through Wyzant before I graduated undergrad (I did physics at Stockton), and then I was a high school teacher for 1 year. After that year, I got a professional engineering job and eventually went off to get two masters (one in Physics and one in engineering). My specialization is in advanced topics in mathematics, physics, engineering and computer programming. I currently work as an engineer and feel pretty comfortable explaining problems as well as solving them.
My tutoring and teaching style has changed over the years. In the past, I used to implement a more hands on approach for the tuttee. (I would guide the student as we solve problems together.) However, after working in a high school for a year and also teaching various undergraduate courses, I feel that the best approach is to first have you send me your homework/subject. My approach is to understand the topic that needs to be learned first and then to teach the student. This is done first by me solving a variety of the problems in advanced (this will save critical time and maximize the learning outcome), and walk the student through how to solve them and why we do it that way. The tutoring session concludes with me watching my tuttee successfully solve a problem themselves. Regardless of how far the student makes it through my notes, I strive to have them solve at least one problem without my assistance during the session and will send you home with my notes. (I have found this particularly helpful for parents who are also overwhelmed with the material, because sometimes you just need someone to intervene for an hour or two a month and you can take the “steering wheel” with your child’s learning.)
My recommendation for tutoring locations is dependent on the age of the student. For high school or elementary school, I recommend we meet at a library. (I encourage parents to stay with their child, because of my teaching style— you will also be able to help your child after the session ends.) For college students, I recommend we meet at a library or a coffee shop. In regards to the physics classes and engineering courses I can assist with;
-Nuclear Engineering (up to 600-level classes)
-Electrical Engineering (only undergrad)
-Physics (up to 600-level classes)
-Mathematics (only undergrad)
-Statistics (up to a 600 level course)
-Programming languages: C++ and Python
