Walla Walla College
As a mechanical engineer, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of subjects: math, material science, Computer Aided Drafting, Finite Element Analysis, Structural Analysis, Aircraft and flight dynamics, and data analysis.
As a lab instructor, college tutor, and high school math/science teacher, I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of students and subjects. I greatly enjoy working with students in a challenging area, and seeing a cloudy subject become clear.
I greatly enjoy math, science, and computer related fields of study. I look forward to working with anyone interested in these areas, who could use some help from someone who's had to work hard to learn too.

I believe a good session length is two hours. For cancellations with less than 8 hours notice, I will charge for one half of the planned session time.
I really appreciate that Tim took the time to brush up on logarithms and half life formulas before he met with me. He was very encouraging and just what I needed to help me with these concepts. His teaching style was just perfect for me.
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.
I thoroughly enjoy drafting! I like seeing a clean, clear drawing take shape from rough ideas and sketches, and being able to present a finished product that has all the information needed to create a product, and look good.
I have used Autocad from Release 9 up through Autocad 2010. I have used Autocad in a professional capacity for many years as a draftsman, as well as for my own projects.
I have also done a great deal of solid modeling using Autodesk Inventor and Pro Engineer.
As a substitute teacher at Palisades Christian Academy, I have had the chance to work with 4th through 10th grade students. I enjoy seeing their minds expand as they acquire the skills needed to make a resounding success of their time in school.
I earned my B.S. degree in mechanical engineering. I have experience in all classes required to complete this program.
Having played volleyball for 25 years, I can say I really love this game. I have played both indoor and outdoor; I have played in leagues; and I have played very competitive (BB level) matches.
I have been a girls volleyball coach for two years, and feel comfortable teaching both the fundamentals as well as more advanced skills of the game to anyone wanting to learn.
