About Amanda

I'm Amanda W., a graduate of Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Science Electrical Engineering with a concentration in semiconductor devices. The summer before my freshman year of college I spent six weeks tutoring and counseling children ages 6-13 at a camp about basic mathematics, reading, and grammar. All the children I tutored increased their school test scores by at least 5% the next year. Aside from a camp counselor I have lead a number of study groups throughout my career at Tech. When I taught other people about the material I knew best, I realized that I had to explain it in with different approaches so that everyone would be able to understand. I also made sure to check for understand whenever I went over new concepts and made sure everyone felt at ease about asking questions no matter how many times I would have to go over something.

I have completed all of my college level math classes with 4.0. Each subject I taught my fellow classmates the hard concepts and developed plans to help them better study for my classes. I break each concept down to the fundamentals so it is easier to understand remember during a test. I also develop a test taking plan for each concept, so on the day of the test you will feel confident in your ability to excel.

I relate electrical engineering problems to everyday situations so that the materials is easier to remember and grasp. Also, I have used my electrical engineering skills in the field for 1.5 years, so I can explain how some concepts are used on the job. Additionally, I research in organic semiconductor devices for a year with doctoral student at Georgia Tech in the Kippelen Research group. These experiences will be translated to help you understand how these concepts are actually used.

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.

Electrical Engineering

I received a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech with highest honors in May 2016. I have 1.5 years of work experience related to radar and circuits. I also researched in the Kippelen Research Group at Georgia Tech for 1 year conducting experiments on organic semiconductors. During this time I aided in another member's research by manufacturing and testing 15 organic transistors and 25 organic solar cells.

Calculus II was giving me anxiety and Amanda helped lower mine. She is very knowledgeable and made the experience fun. Her patience and positivity helped get me more comfortable with the material.
