About Janelle

I just graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. This 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.

I was a private math tutor for four years. In that time, we worked through new material and improved study skills and critical thinking. I am patient and will take the time to take you step by step until you understand how to do the problem. Rather than doing the problem and giving you the answer, I will guide you through so you learn the process and material. I can simplify the material so that it is easier to pick up. I will pay attention to areas where you struggle and focus on that. I am flexible and can teach through different methods to find which works best for you. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to use my skills to improve your grades and give you 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.

Great Help — 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 ...
