About Silvia

As a fellow student, I get what it's like to be in a class and want some extra help. I am nearing the end of my degree in Mechanical Engineering, and I've gained plenty of experience along the way, not only with the subject matter, but also with balancing school and life, studying effectively, and finding the best available resources for help.

I am a senior in an accredited Mechanical Engineering degree with a 3.5 gpa. I have worked two mechanical engineering internships; one with a slight tendency toward manufacturing, the other more on the research and development side of things. I am currently preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. I have experienced tutoring in these subjects from both sides (being the tutor and the tutee) and hope to be able to help you succeed in the demanding classes characteristic of engineering.

Throughout school, I have worked as a private tutor for a variety of subjects, and I have participated in countless study groups. I really enjoy being involved in collaborative education this way because I think that being able to teach a concept or subject is the best way to keep it sharp in the mind. Likewise, my approach to tutoring is focused more around a discussion than a lecture style, where you and I are able to figure out the material together. We'll talk through your ideas and reasons as we work out example problems and review key concepts.

I am familiar with a wide range of topics. I took (and passed!) eleven different AP tests (Human Geography, European History, Spanish Language, English Language, English Literature, Statistics, Calculus, Psychology, Physics Mechanics, US Government, and Comparative Political Science) as a high school student, and currently participate in my University's Honors program specifically to make my broader education more meaningful. Because of this, I am eager to work with students who might be struggling in topics that aren't necessarily their major focus (either for a degree or just what they want to do with their education) to find ways to build from things they are already familiar with and help them to understand the material and know how it might apply to their future course.

Most of my formal tutoring experience has been at a collegiate level, specifically working with student-athletes. I also have lots of informal experience teaching things like sports, cooking, crafts, and school subjects to younger age groups, from elementary school to high school. I love seeing students get excited about a topic as they have success with it, especially younger kids. I am a big believer in helping kids get a good academic start as early as possible to shape their future.

I am excited to get together with anyone else who loves learning and is willing to work hard to overcome those difficult classes that we all get stuck in!

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 English

I got a 36 English subscore on the ACT.

Lacrosse

I played high-school level lacrosse for two years and was a captain on my team. I have experience with all field positions, especially defense. I love the game and can help develop skills from beginning to intermediate play.

Mechanical Engineering

I am a senior in an accredited Mechanical Engineering degree with a 3.5 gpa. I have worked two mechanical engineering internships; one with a slight tendency toward manufacturing, the other more on the research and development side of things. I am currently preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.

I have experienced tutoring in these subjects from both sides (being the tutor and the tutee) and hope to be able to help you succeed in the demanding classes characteristic of engineering.

Proofreading

I have worked as a peer editor at a university for a year now, and I love proofreading and editing papers. I have taken a training course that focused on helping the writer become a better writer (in addition to helping the paper become the best it can be), along with working with ESL students, group settings, and online conferencing. I have also taken a technical writing course with an emphasis on writing in engineering.

I can help you proofread business letters, resumes and CVs, essays, short stories, long stories, poetry, and anything else you're working on writing. I give tons of feedback and help you develop your own writing.

I can also share some pointers and insights on how to become a good proofreader.

Soccer

I have played soccer for 15 years and loved every minute of it. I have experience with co-ed and women's competitive leagues, with 5-a-side play as well as full 11-a-side. I have played in all positions and spend most of my time playing goalkeeper. I am knowledgeable in the game and I have been a referee for adult recreational leagues. I am familiar with conditioning workouts, skill drills for individuals and teams, and giving feedback during gameplay.

Solidworks

As a mechanical engineer, I have spent a fair amount of time with this software. From starting a simple part, to creating assemblies, to running simulations, and finally creating drawings to get your parts made, I can help you navigate the software and create beautiful, functional models. I have used Solidworks in both educational and professional pursuits and can give you some manufacturing insights to help your make something the best possible way, as well as common practices that will lend to easier editing and collaboration with other engineers, customers, or manufacturing shops.

Spanish

I have actively studied Spanish for over a decade in school settings as well as home study and immersion. I am fluent in the language and passed the AP Spanish Language exam as a Sophomore. I spent 18 months teaching and serving the Hispanic communities of Arkansas and Tennessee and during that time was responsible for teaching the language to many of my fellow volunteers. I am very familiar with the difficulties of the language and how to grasp difficult grammar context. I love the language and culture and am eager to help anyone, from beginners to anyone wanting to practice speaking and refresh the accent a bit.
