About Alexandria


Bio

I am starting graduate school for mechanical engineering at UW starting in January 2018. I have my B.S. is a mechanical engineering field and spent the last year and a half as an engineer of Electric Boat (contractor for the US Navy Submarine program). While working as an engineer, I tutored various subjects. My favorite part of the job (though it never felt like a job) was seeing students understand something that they didn't before.

I am starting graduate school for mechanical engineering at UW starting in January 2018. I have my B.S. is a mechanical engineering field and spent the last year and a half as an engineer of Electric Boat (contractor for the US Navy Submarine program).
While working as an engineer, I tutored various subjects. My favorite part of the job (though it never felt like a job) was seeing students understand something that they didn't before.

I loved being part of that process. I know there were some subjects that were very tricky for me, and spending just an hour with someone who understood the subject was a huge help. It made me more confident and happy, let alone improved my grades. I hope I can help you by taking the time to break things down, be patient and work through tough subjects!

I took a lot of math, science and engineering courses during undergrad. Some were easier and some were extremely difficult for me. I also was on the rowing team for the first two years of college. Holding a leadership role on a D1 sports team was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I had to learn time management, work with a lot of different people to achieve a similar goal, but most of all, I had to learn how to study efficiently because I had limited free time. I know what it takes to balance all the extra-curricula's you may be juggling in high school or college.

One of the resources I had was the athletic tutoring center available for athletes. I also tutored introductory college-level math once I completed those subjects. Having that resource and then being able to be a resource for others was a great experience. Everyone learns different concepts at a different pace and that is the main lesson I learned while tutoring at the center.

A lot of class time isn't devoted to helping you through problems. Most classes are either lecture-based or the homework is simply assigned without much instruction. Problem-solving is a skill that is vital to any course, including any college entry tests. It's also the main skill I use at my job now. My approach is to allow you to figure out how to solve the problem on your own. With some hints and guidance, and definitely some reassurance, I believe I have a really positive and motivating tutoring style.

These are some of the subjects I tutor:
ACT Math, ACT Science, ACT Reading (I received a 30 on my ACT, so much of this exam is test strategy)
SAT Math, SAT Science, SAT Reading, SAT Writing
Calculus (I have a 3.7 GPA in all calculus courses)
Algebra I and II
