“**Heat Transfer Tutoring**”

Hello! I'm Ethan P., a 26 year old male currently pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the University of Houston National Wind Energy Center with a focus on VARIM composite manufacturing process modeling and simulation. I'm a research assistant and a teaching assistant (TA). Within the past year I have helped facilitate and teach MECE

Background Check:
Passed

In-person lessons

Ethan assisted me with my graduate level heat transfer homework. He was very knowledgeable in the subject matter and provided thorough explanations of how to approaches/ solve problems. He seemed to have a general interest in ensuring I understood how to solve the problems, as opposed to just solving the problems himself. I would recommend Ethan to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of complex engineering concepts.

We worked on Linear Algebra. Conversation was free-flowing. We talked about the theory. He ha a lot of examples to help explain the theory.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

As a Freshman at UH, I completed Advanced Honors Calculus with an A grade and went on to gain a minor in Mathematics. I kept my calculus knowledge fresh as an undergraduate and graduate student in mechanical engineering. I try to teach a physical understanding and derivation of the problem along with its application when possible.

I passed MATH 3363: Introduction to Partial Differential Equations with an A grade in the Spring of 2010. I have also received grades of A- or better in Solid Mechanics, Intro to Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer and Computational Fluid Dynamics I and II which require an understanding of differential equations. In graduate courses, differential equations were emphasized in Methods of Applied Mathematics I and II, Viscous Flow Theory, and Multiphase Flows. My research into the liquid phase of composite processing requires an understanding of differential equations.

As a graduate student in mechanical engineering I have time for one hobby and I chose to focus on golf. It is easily my favorite hobby as I golf at least once per week. My last 10 rounds were scores of 77, 82, 78, 76, 76, 80, 85, 84, 89 and 82. My lowest score is a 72 (twice) I have taught 6 friends how to play and am currently teaching another. As a student of the game, I have read 'Ben Hogan's Five Lessons' and learned from watching professional gofers as a volunteer at the Shell Houston Open. I competed in the Houston Junior Golf Association for a year and have found a few to compete in since then, winning the Spring 2016 Intramural Golf Tournament at the University of Houston.

I passed MATH 4377: Advanced Linear Algebra I with an A grade in the Summer of 2011. I graduated in 2012 from the University of Houston with a math minor and have since taken courses in graduate school which teach or require an understanding of linear algebra such as: Theory of Elasticity, Methods of Applied Mathematics I and II and Composite Materials. I was also a Teaching Assistant in the Fall of 2015 for MECE 3400: Introduction to Mechanics, which involves some linear algebra.

I received an A grade in CHEE 1331: Computing for Engineers (A MATLAB, Excel and Fortran course) at the University of Houston. I have since used MATLAB throughout my undergraduate and graduate career as a tool for solving problems, plotting, analyzing data and performing basic numerical procedures. When I have taught peers how to use MATLAB, I have done so through buddy coding and writing sample code.

I graduated in the Spring of 2012 at the top of my mechanical engineering class at the University of Houston with a 3.790 GPA, Summa Cum Laude Honors, Honors in Major, and a Mathematics Minor. I am currently pursuing my PhD in mechanical engineering and possess a GPA of 3.500 and I have passed the Qualifying Exam. I have been a Teaching Assistant for two MECE courses: Intro to Mechanics and Design of Machine Elements and look forward to being a TA during upcoming semesters. I specialize in Fluid Dynamics, Numerical Fluid Dynamics, experimentation and Mechanics as they relate to my research in composites and I have a solid understanding of heat transfer and thermodynamics.
