About Tammy


Bio

I'm a Mechanical Engineer with five years of working experience who has always been drawn to helping others understand math and physics. This started in high school when I helped two of my closest friends gain a better understanding for physics. I am a big believer that different people learn in different ways, and I enjoy figuring out how to adjust the concept to the student rather than the other way around. By far my greatest passion and understanding lies in mathematics, though I am happy...

I'm a Mechanical Engineer with five years of working experience who has always been drawn to helping others understand math and physics. This started in high school when I helped two of my closest friends gain a better understanding for physics. I am a big believer that different people learn in different ways, and I enjoy figuring out how to adjust the concept to the student rather than the other way around. By far my greatest passion and understanding lies in mathematics, though I am happy to help in physics and chemistry as well.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and went on to get a Master's in the same subject from Oakland University.

My tutoring experience started working with second graders while I was in high school. In college I worked in a one-on-one setting with college students taking Algebra. Since graduating I have taken on tutoring here and there, working one on one with students studying for GREs and MCATs, as well as in a group setting. I always strive to help the students I work with get excited about the subject and gain confidence in their skills.

Having an MS in Engineering required taking a lot of math classes! Beyond that, I always enjoyed math and was taking the most challenging classes available in my high school. Through my job I've kept my skills sharp and also learned where math concepts can be applied in the real world.

If you need help with math at any level, I'd love to hear from you.

Thorough and detailed tutoring approach

Tammy has been very thorough and detailed in her lessons. She has broken down processes into discrete steps, making everything more clear. In addition, she has provided supporting written materials for me to review outside of the lessons. Thank you, Tammy!

Excellent Math Tutor

Tammy has been working with my daughter to help her with IB math. She’s very knowledgeable and has been very helpful, explaining concepts in ways that are easily understood. We would highly recommend her and intend to continue using her as a tutor.
