I'm Rob and I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and suma cum laude with a doctorate degree in Civil Engineering. During my time in academia I have experienced a multitude of teaching styles and methods and believe that my teaching style reflects the most successful of these approaches. In general, my lesson plans include: determining the student's knowledge base, explaining the basic concepts and theory behind the topic, going over example problems, allowing the student to work on examples on their own, and time for any additional questions. I am willing to adapt this strategy as needed.

I have over 5 years of tutoring/teaching experience that I attained as I progressed through my graduate degree. This includes: being teaching assistant for 5 different university level classes, developing tutorial videos for engineering related software, and independently teaching 2 university level courses. During my time lecturing I developed lesson plans, assignments, and examinations. Additionally, while my lectures may have been geared towards large groups (approximately 70), I also provided recitations and office hours for small groups and individuals who had additional questions or required 1-on-1 learning. In these settings I have tutored/taught some basic and advanced concepts of engineering, including: structural analysis, autocad, finite element analysis, and computer methods/programming in engineering.

I have utilized and taught high level mathematics for upwards of a decade. I have tutored dozens of students in Calculus as well as taught a university level course introducing linear algebra concepts.

Throughout my undergraduate civil engineering curriculum I tutored students who were struggling with concepts. Additionally, during my graduate and post-doc studies I have been a teaching assistant and instructor for multiple civil engineering courses.

I have 9 years of Matlab coding experience. Not only have a used Matlab for engineering courses, but I also used Matlab for the m

I have used Matlab consistently during both my undergraduate and graduate studies. Specifically, during my graduate studies I was teaching assistant for two courses that introduced Freshman engineering students to coding/Matlab. Additionally, one of the courses I taught during my studies included implementing Matlab into civil engineering concepts.
