About Brittany


Bio

I am an upperclassman Mechanical Engineering and Physics major at TCU, with research interests in Semiconductor Materials and Plasma Physics. I have a passion for STEM education. I have participated in multiple research opportunities on campus--from cancer drug manufacturing research with an esteemed Welch Chair to industry-contracted materials research for Lockheed Martin. In Spring 2013, I won the Engineering Department award at the Student Research Symposium for my work, and soon after...

I am an upperclassman Mechanical Engineering and Physics major at TCU, with research interests in Semiconductor Materials and Plasma Physics. I have a passion for STEM education. I have participated in multiple research opportunities on campus--from cancer drug manufacturing research with an esteemed Welch Chair to industry-contracted materials research for Lockheed Martin. In Spring 2013, I won the Engineering Department award at the Student Research Symposium for my work, and soon after some of my chemistry research was published in ACS's research magazine.

As a student, I have always been well respected and looked up to by my peers, and as such have often been offered tutoring and mentoring positions. Since middle school I have been in a variety of peer-tutoring programs where I helped other students prepare for state exams, as well as homework help. Throughout high school I was on a list of approved tutors for a variety of subjects, and my Junior year of high school I began tutoring AP/College level courses. Since moving to college, I have continued one-on-one and group tutoring, specifically in courses relating to Science, Math, and Engineering, although there are a few others I occasionally tutor for as well. In addition, I have experience with science education as a Gallery Presenter at the Perot Museum. I also have much experience with and am very comfortable with tutoring those with learning and social disabilities.

I've heard people say that the best way to learn is to teach. I embrace this idea in my approach to tutoring, where I have the student walk me through what they understand, so together we can explore what they don't. This positive approach allows the student to see how much knowledge they actually already have at their disposal. It encourages the student and gives them the confidence they need approaching their coursework. My job is to give students the tools necessary to be able to understand, analyze, and work through problems on their own.

The best way to learn something is to teach it. –I embrace this idea in my approach to tutoring, where I have the student teach the material to me. I believe this is a more positive approach because it encourages the student by focusing on their strengths instead of their weaknesses, so they can have the confidence they need. This approach also results in better understanding of the material, because it makes the student think about not only 'how' when solving a problem, but also 'why'.

I have open availability evenings after 5 and weekends. I am looking forward to working with your student to reach their goals.

I currently work as a Structural Designer in an engineering firm, so I work with AutoCAD everyday. I have 3+ years professionally using the software, and have tutoring engineering students in it and Autodesk Inventor for about 6 years. I have even developed a three week training program for my firm for new employees to get familiar with the software.

While I scored in the 98th percentile on my own exam, I have spent the last few years helping students reach their goals too. I average +230/+5 points for over 30 hours of tutoring. Along with SAT and ACT tutoring, I work with the student to assess their college aspirations to give them clear goals- both ultimate goals and benchmark goals during our time together.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I completed this course with an A+ when I first entered college, the only student in the course to do so in two semesters. Since then, I have spent over four years tutoring this subject and consider it one of my specialties. I have gone on to take advanced/partial differential equations and have used applied differential equations in my quantum mechanics courses, so I feel very comfortable describing the subject in real-world problems. I have had many students go from failing to making A's and B's on final exams with my help.

Electrical Engineering

I am working on completing my degree in Mechanical Engineering, but along the way I did pursue an electrical engineering degree. I covered 5 semesters worth of electrical material, and I have been tutoring freshman and sophomore level courses for over six years. I specialize in digital logic and Circuits 1-3. Tutoring engineering is my passion, because I really make a difference in these students futures. I have had continued success tutoring students in these areas.
