I am a mechanical engineering student, in my second year of working towards my PhD at the University of Washington, and am an experienced tutor in the areas of math, science, and engineering. I did my undergraduate studies at Lafayette College in Easton, PA, and graduated at the top of my class due to my commitment to not just memorizing an answer, but understanding a concept. My academic interests are in the fields of energy, thermodynamics, and heat transfer, but I am also excited to explain fundamental algebra and physics concepts.
I love helping others to understand the subjects they are studying - it is so rewarding for everyone involved! During my undergraduate studies I worked as a supplemental instructor for a 200 level statics course, and helped many students with homework problems and concepts. The feedback I received from that experience was positive, as students appreciated that I both explained the mathematical concepts and the physical intuition behind each concept. I've also spent the past year tutoring many students one-on-one in calculus and physics, among other subjects.
I have a number of different strategies for explaining concepts, for all different learning styles. My favorite teaching strategy is to ask leading questions along a student's line of reasoning, and examine their steps with them until they see the legitimacy of their approach. In that way, I encourage students to scrutinize their own reasoning and develop techniques to solve problems independently.
I have flexible availability around my academic commitments. Please feel free to reach out! I respond quickly and am always looking to help.
