About Janelle

I graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in December 2015. I have spent the past year working as a packaging engineer for a company that manufactures medical devices. My degree required years of math and mechanical engineering classes, which I performed very well in. I have taken all of the math classes that I selected, along with calculus III (3 dimensional calculus and vector analysis), differential equations, and matrices. I have taken years of classes in engineering mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, vibrations, turbomachinery, materials, product design, and manufacturing processes. I have experience with SolidWorks, C++ programming, and Matlab. I also performed very well on the SAT, the SAT physics and math subject tests, and the ACT. Working as an engineer has continued to expand my own critical thinking and enforce the material learned in school.

I was a private math tutor for four years in high school. I have also been a part time tutor since I graduated college in 2015, helping students with various levels of engineering, math, science, and test prep. With every student, we work through new material and improve study skills and critical thinking. Rather than giving students the answer, I guide them through problems step by step so they grasp the process and material. I can simplify the material so that it is easier to understand. I pay attention to and focus on areas of struggle. I am very patient and flexible and apply different teaching methods to find which works best for each student. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to use my skills to improve students' grades and give them the confidence to succeed. To me, developing study skills to be used in all subjects is just as important as learning the material.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

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.

ACT Math

I received a 35 on the math section of the ACT.

Differential Equations

I took differential equations at Penn State and received an A-. Since then, I have used differentials in most of my engineering classes and have continued to improve my skills at taking derivatives and integrals.

Linear Algebra

I have taken many math classes that incorporate linear algebra. I took math 220 at Penn State which involved solving systems of equations using matrices. I also took math 230 at Penn State, which was calculus and vector analysis of three dimensional equations. I just graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

Mechanical Engineering

I just graduated in December 2015 from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. I have a lot of experience with engineering mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, vibrations, turbomachinery, materials, product design, and manufacturing processes. I have experience with SolidWorks, C++ programming, and Matlab.

I also worked in a team on two technical design projects. One project involved improving the thermal efficiency of a building on campus, which entailed finding possible solutions to insulate the building, testing the possible solutions in a hotbox experiment, and analyzing costs and energy savings of each solution. The second project involved redesigning the power transmission components of a 3-axis CNC milling machine, which entailed redesigning elements such as the frame and motor housing to increase accuracy and reduce costs. We also used the PRIMA matrix to determined better manufacturing processes for lower costs, shorter manufacturing time, easier assembly, and higher strength.

Regents

I have taken multiple Regents exams in high school. I have taken the Regents for math (integrated algebra, geometry, algebra 2/ trigonometry), Earth science, biology, chemistry, English, history/ geography social studies, and Spanish. I received at least a 90 on all Regents exams.

SAT Math

I received a 700 on the math section of the SAT for a total of 2040. I also received a 720 on the Mathematics Level 1 SAT subject test.

Janelle was friendly and approachable. She reviewed previous trouble spots (9th grade geometry). Seemed to get daughter on board and engaged. We'll see how the next quizzes/tests go. Stay tuned. UPDATE - As we approach the end of the year Janelle has helped daughter right the ship and get back to her previous high performance in math. It is a shame we can't continue as we get closer to the en
