About Todd

To whom it may concern,

There are few things in life that I would say I am passionate about, but I can say without reservation that I am passionate about mathematics and helping others. It is this passion that I feel makes me an excellent tutor.

For as long as I can remember, I have had an aptitude for math. It is this ability that fueled my desire to excel in the subject. It was this desire that lead me to learn the deep ins and outs, the whys of math. It was my love of math that helped me decide to study engineering in college (as a side note, I received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Brigham Young University - Idaho, have completed a master's degree in nuclear engineering at Texas A&M, and have just begun a doctoral program at Brigham Young University). I feel that my extensive knowledge allows me to explain things from many different angles as needed.

I also enjoy helping others. There are few things in life that bring me the same joy and satisfaction that I feel as when I help someone understand something new. During my time as a student at BYU-I, I worked as a math tutor for the university. I believe it was my love of helping others that allowed me to always be happy to go to work.

I thank you for taking the time to read this and hope that I can fill your need for a tutor.

Sincerely,
Todd W.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring college level algebra for four years and have been applying the principles learned therein for even longer as part of my calculus and engineering classes.

Calculus

I took AP Calculus in high school and received a 5 on the test. More recently, I worked for seven semesters at the Math Study Center at Brigham Young University - Idaho where I specialized in calculus.

Geometry

I excelled in 8th grade geometry.
I have studied geometric principles in algebra 2, pre-calculus, and three semesters of calculus.
I additionally studied geometry and geometric relationships as part of my undergraduate work in mechanical engineering.

Mechanical Engineering

I've just completed a BS in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in thermal sciences. I feel my strong points are statics, dynamics, strength of materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, numeric methods, and heat transfer. Most notably, I worked as a TA/tutor for dynamics during my undergraduate work.

Physics

I have had two years of high school physics, and 10+ credit hours of particle motion, rigid body motion, static equilibrium, electricity, magnetism, and optics.
