About Austin

I was born and raised in Florida where I went to high school and graduated summa cum laude in the top 2 percent of my class. While I was there I was a part of a number of volunteer froups and tutored many different age groups ranging from 1st grade to 12th grade in all subjects. I was given a couple of awards for my work tutoring in Latin and Math at my high school. This helped me realize how much I enjoyed teaching.
I went on to pursue joint bachelor's and masters degrees as well as a minor at SIT which I completed in 4 years with high honors for both degrees. I spent some time there doing unofficial tutoring for my peers but primarily focused on my studies.
I currently work as a naval architect in the DMV area and am looking to pursue my interest in teaching as a part time job.
My experience in tutoring is primarily in helping with already provided assignments while working towards a better understanding of the material. I also have experience giving full lessons in some topics and i have experience lecturing. My teaching method emphasizes student participation.
My interests and skills are mainly in the STEM fields but I have also had success in history and English subjects.

I have an extensive background in math. I am extremely competent at teaching math courses up to Calculus 1 and have experience tutoring in almost every math level up to that point. I received a perfect score on the math section of the AC, a 5 on the AP Calculus exam, and excellent grades in all math courses.

Science is a big part of my background as a STEM major. As an engineer I have to use physics every day. I received passing scores on every AP science that was offered: chemistry, physics, biology, environmental, and psychology.

I have a huge amount of experience coding in a number of different languages both for work and in college for projects ranging from data analysis code, program creation, and robotics. Coding is a passion of mine.

I am primarily looking to tutor because I enjoy teaching. I am a very patient teacher and enjoy working with people towards the success of their goals.
