UW Madison - Engineering (Engineering)
My name is Tyler, and I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am originally from Appleton Wisconsin and I am currently studying engineering at the University of Wisconsin. I plan on double majoring in electrical engineering and computer science. My coursework in these majors is rigorous, and they require a strong background in math and the science. Fortunately, I do have a very strong background in math and science and as a tutor, I want to use my knowledge and skills in these subjects to help more students succeed.
My favorite part of tutoring is seeing a student finally grasp the subject, and then start to learn and succeed on their own. I believe that is the purpose of any teacher or tutor, to empower the student in the subject area that they are struggling in, so that eventually they will no longer need a tutor. I have some experience tutoring in the past. When I was in high school, I was a member of my school's chapter of the National Honor Society. One of the activities I participated in was tutoring students on Tuesday mornings. My experiences tutoring in the National Honor Society have given me practical experience in teaching; experience that I hope to use to make clients into more capable students.
Engineering is a field of study that requires math. Lots and lots of math. So, naturally, I have a strong background in math. I was already taking college level Calculus while I was in high school, and by the time I graduate, in addition to a double major in electrical engineering and computer science, I will also have a certificate in mathematics. In addition, I scored a 33 on the math section of my ACT, for a total composite score of 32. My knowledge includes Pre-Algebra to Calculus, and everything in between.
In addition to mathematics, engineering also requires a strong knowledge of scientific principles. Throughout the course of high school, I took rigorous, Advanced Placement courses in chemistry and physics, and I passed all of the tests. At the University of Wisconsin, I am currently taking an advanced level chemistry course for my major. In addition, I scored a 34 on the science component of my ACT exam.
Students, if you are motivated to learn and looking for a knowledgeable, flexible tutor, I'm your man. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

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.
