Texas A&M University (Mechanical Engineer)
I am a mechanical engineer with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, who works in Midland. As a mechanical engineer, my formal education is rooted in math and science related subjects, such as calculus and physics. Although I do not have an extensive history as a formal "tutor", I do have a history of helping some of my friends and siblings with their math/science related problems. The breadth of difficulty ranges from elementary to college level. I have always enjoyed teaching others and working through problems together. Also, as a very patient individual, I enjoy taking as much time as it requires to adequately explain the problem fundamentals.
As a very conceptual and detail oriented person, I will teach the "why" of the problem, and not just "how" to do the problem. Knowing "why" to do a problem a certain way is the best way to first learn the concept of what is going on. Once the concept is learned, the "how" or execution of the problem becomes easy and is more efficient than guessing with various memorized equations. Memorizing equations to throw at a problem hoping that one will work is a poor way to learn. Equations are written down for a reason, so you don't have to memorize them all. Learning the concept of the problem first is the best way to learn. As your tutor, I will strive to teach in a conceptual manner so that the purpose of the problem is clear and defined.

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.
I graduated from a major Texas university with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I am currently a practicing mechanical engineer and a licensed "Engineer in Training" by the Texas Board of Professional Engineers. I have just over three years of professional experience in various industries.
