About Lance

I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. During my final year I became a mentor to first year students through the Collegiate Success Institute and tutor in Math and Spanish. I enjoyed it so much I passed on a career as an engineer to become a teacher giving classes in Math, Science, and Spanish. My goal as a tutor is to have my lessons be on track with the student's actual curriculum by coordinating with the teachers. I intend to guide my students through their homework assignments and prepare for upcoming exams.

As a high school student I excelled in Math and Physics earning AP Honors and college credit for Calculus 1 & 2 and Physics. These skills were the foundation of my success as a mechanical engineering student. I am fluent in Spanish as a second language and spent 6 months in the Dominican Republic as an educator and mentor to underprivileged youth. I recall how demanding math courses are and how challenging it is to learn a second language. I will utilize my experiences to improve my students performance and relate to the material. I am willing to travel to the students home or meet at a public library.

Excellent tutor! — He really took the time to break down the concepts of Algebra with my daughter. She felt more confident after the session that she will pass Algebra now. He even gave her some advice on websites to go to study more on her own. I highly recommend Lance! ...
