About Chanyalew

Welcome!
I am very effective and well qualified to tutor Math (Algebra, Calculus and Differential Equation) and Mechanical Engineering courses. I am a professor of Mechanical Engineering with more than 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience in various colleges and universities around the world. Through my career, I got the opportunities to learn the beauty of multi cultural socities in Malaysia, Sultanate of Oman, Ethiopia and the US. I enjoy working with students and find great pleasure in seeing their achievements.
I have very clear and simple approach for my tutoring lessons. Once I conversed with my clients, I set up goals for the course and propose to my client before the first lesson. Based on the feedback to the proposal, I will device the best approach to help my client understand the core concepts and feel confident.
I would like to let you know that your messages are very valuable to me and will be given immediate attention. Moreover, I will even give top priorities for urgent matters like: help my assignment due is tonight, I have tests coming too soon, and so on!
I am looking forward to investing my experience and serving you!

Thank you!
C. Taye

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

Besides Pre Algebra, the most covered topic on the ACT math is Plane Geometry. The most important concepts about plane geometry are parallel lines are lines with the same slope and perpendicular lines are lines whose slopes are negative reciprocals. The area of a circle is Pi*r^2, the area of a triangle is 1/2*b*h, and the area of a rectangle is l*w.

Algebra 1

Algebra I is all about the solving linear equations of single variable in the form of ax + b = c. There are two steps needed to solve such an equation. First we have to subtract b from both sides and then we divide both sides by a. It is necessary to understand these two steps before proceeding in any algebra.

Algebra 2

In Algebra II we extend our knowledge of Algebra I and learn how to solve system of 2 linear equations with 2 variables. A popular method is to multiply both sides of one equation by a number so that the coefficient on one of the variables is the same in both equations. Then we subtract/add one equation from the other to eliminate that variable. The problem has then been reduced to a problem from we studied in Algebra I.

AutoCAD

I am Mechanical Engineer and as of such intensively use AutoCAD to prepare engineering drawings for my design projects, and research works. I was a lecturer in the graphics department in college and taught AutoCAD for more than three semesters. I am working with advanced solid modeling with AutoCAD and CREO (Pro Engineer).

Calculus

Calculus deals with the derivatives and the integrals. Derivatives are instantaneous rates of change and integrals are areas under curves. It turns out that derivatives and integrals are inverses of each other. That is, the area under the curve of a derivative function is the function itself. The engineering application of calculus is really fascinating.

Differential Equations

During my undergraduate study as a Mechanical Engineering student I had taken 23 credit hours of Engineering Mathematics (Descriptive Geometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations and Numerical Methods). In my masters study, I took advanced Maths on the application of Partial Differential Equations for Engineering Dynamics, Tensor Mechanics and Fracture Mechanics. I taught Engineering Mechanics courses (Vibration, Dynamics and Mechanisms) which intensively use differential Equations.

Geometry

How would you prove the area of a circle is Pi*r^2. Well, you could inscribe the circle inside an octagon and form 8 triangles within that octagon. The area of each of those 8 triangles is 1/2*r*s where s is the length of each side of the octagon. So we have an area within the octagon of 8s*1/2*r. This is an approximation of the area of the circle that improves if the polygon (in this case, an octagon) has more sides. In particular, a polygon with many sides will have a perimeter very close to the perimeter of the circle which is 2*Pi*r.

Mechanical Engineering

I have my PhD, Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering.
I have more than 10 years of experience teaching Mechanical Engineering courses in different Universities and colleges. I taught Engineering Mechanics (Statics and Dynamics), Mechanisms of Machinery, Mechanical Vibration, Strength of Materials, Solid Mechanics, Technical Drawing, Machine Drawing, Machine Elements, Mechanical Design, Final Year Project, Engineering Metrology, Metallurgy and Production of Metals. I am rated as best lecturer/tutor by my students.

Physics

I've helped many high school (regular track and AP Physics) and college students (Physics I and II) through their problems with physics. I'm very well versed in both algebra-based and calculus-based physics, and being a mechanical engineer, I'm not afraid to help you tackle any difficult problems!

Prealgebra

Perhaps the most difficult hurdle in pre-algebra is how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. Adding and subtracting fractions requires a common denominator. Multiplying fractions does not, and dividing by a fraction is just multiplying by the reciprocal.

SAT Math

One topic on the SAT includes finding the length of an arc using the Pythagorean Theorem. If the arc is a quarter circle and there is a rectangle inscribed in that quarter circle with the length and width known, then the Pythagorean Theorem will calculate the radius of the quarter circle and from that we use the fact that the arc length is the radius times the angle which in this case is 90 degrees or pi/2 radians.

Wonderful experience

Chanyalew came to the house for the first time to tutor my sophomore son in Algebra 2. He came well prepared to review problems that my son had questions about. He knew the subject matter very well, and was able to explain it in a way that my son understood quickly. He was friendly, professional, and efficient. My son had a very positive experience, and actually had fun learning with Chanyalew
