About Brian

I'm a graduate from an Ivy League college with a degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in electrical engineering. Even though, aside from when I worked at a teaching assistant while getting my masters in mechanical engineering, I don't have teaching background, I have always enjoyed tutoring because I enjoy learning and believe that it's an important skill for life. I primarily tutor high school math and science (physics and chemistry), but I have also tutored college level math (calculus, statistics), mechanical engineering (thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer) and computer science.

The thing that makes a little different from most tutors is that I only do this on the side. Despite over ten years of experience tutoring, I've always kept tutoring as a part-time thing with a limited number of students. I prefer it this way so I can get to know my pupils better. In addition, this arrangement means that I usually have enough free time to be flexible in case the student needs an extra session for a test or midterms, or has to reschedule because of conflicts.

My hourly rate is a little on the high side but depending on the proximity of location and time of day, the rate can be adjusted down.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Electrical Engineering

I have minored in electrical engineering while getting my degree in mechanical engineering. I also worked for three years as a research assistant doing signal and data analysis for a professor of electrical engineering.

I can help with second-year analog circuits and digital logic, along with their related lab classes. I can also help with discrete math and computer architecture classes.

I have basic level exerience with EAGLE CAD circuit board layout software.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering with a concentration in vehicle engineering and minor in electrical engineering from Cornell University and a Master of Science in mechanical engineering with a concentration in thermofluids from Stony Brook University.

On the academic side I have tutored college students in calculus, statics, physics, chemistry, thermodynamics and computer science (Java and Matlab). When I was at Stony Brook, I was a teaching assistant for a system dynamics class and for senior lab where I worked with students on their wind tunnel experiments.

On the professional side, I'm familiar with many computer-aided design programs, but I am most proficient with ProEngineer Wildfire/Creo. For finite element analysis, I am experienced with ANSYS and ProMechanica. I also have a lot of experience with Matlab for data analysis.
