Bio

My schooling is in engineering and I'm looking to tutor in Algebra. I worked in industry for a hydro-power company as a hydraulic engineer for 9 years and as a structural engineer for 1 year. During my time in industry I worked a lot with CAD, creating 3D models, meshing, CFD and FEA. I tutored my younger brother in Algebra 2 when he was around 15 years old and enjoyed giving him support and working to help him do well in school.

My schooling is in engineering and I'm looking to tutor in Algebra. I worked in industry for a hydro-power company as a hydraulic engineer for 9 years and as a structural engineer for 1 year. During my time in industry I worked a lot with CAD, creating 3D models, meshing, CFD and FEA. I tutored my younger brother in Algebra 2 when he was around 15 years old and enjoyed giving him support and working to help him do well in school. I was a "Pass the Torch" mentor to incoming freshmen at my undergraduate school NJIT and would help them with course work and getting accustomed to college in general. I think school is a very important part of a person's life. I think the discipline of math helps build a strong mental ability to think logically. I went to school for engineering and received my Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from NJIT and my Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Penn State, Main Campus. I'm not looking to tutor in advanced subjects because I am rusty but still have a strong working knowledge of Algebra. In my opinion, the reason for my low rating is because I tutored someone in Calculus and I hadn't used it in awhile, which is why I'm currently limiting my tutoring to Algebra where I can be more effective.

I also enjoy helping people and think tutoring is a good way to support a child's confidence and self esteem. I would like to be there as a coach and mentor and cheer the child (or adult) on to believe in themselves and let them know that someone cares. I am a patient and easy going person and think that this will help in my ability to tutor well. The engineering discipline requires an extensive study of mathematics and I took Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3 and Differential Equations. I did well in my Calculus courses. I am also very comfortable with Algebra and that is what I intend to tutor.
