About Dawn

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2012 with an undergraduate degree in aerospace engineering and a minor in mathematics. I have a passion for math and science, particularly physics, and for helping the next generation of students gain an interest in STEM fields. Many students have a real knack for math until they hit a roadblock - be it algebra, geometry, calculus, or another new math concept.

I aim to help these students learn how to approach problems in a way that will not just help them through tonight's homework (though that's an added bonus!), but also set them up for next year's classes as well.

With my degree in aerospace engineering, I worked with complex mathematics and physics problems, while balancing a research position. I can help students apply mathematics to real world problems because I've seen them!

My credentials include a perfect score on the math portion of the GRE (graduate school admissions exam), scoring in the 98th percentile on my math SAT, and my cum laude degree from Texas A&M University and minor in mathematics. I took many AP classes in high school and scored a "double 5" on my Calculus BC exam, a 5 on the Physics C: Mechanics exam, and a 4 on on the Physics C: Electricity & Magnetism exam.

I work with students in pre-algebra or higher.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Calculus

Calculus is a gateway class - it's complex, but it opens the world up. It allows students to take advanced subjects like differential equations and physics. I used calculus every day for my aerospace engineering degree and tutor it regularly. Students I tutored weekly in the 14-15 school year received 4s and 5s on the Calculus AP exam.

GRE

I took the revised GRE in August 2011, and received a perfect score on the quantitative portion of the exam and in the 93rd percentile in the verbal portion of the exam. I help connect students with free resources many don't know about that can really contribute to success.

I help with both content and test taking tips and tricks. I definitely feel like test taking tips are the key to most students success!

Linear Algebra

I have a degree in aerospace engineering from Texas A&M University with a minor in mathematics. Aerospace engineering is very heavy on linear algebra. For my math minor, I took linear algebra coursework.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a degree in aerospace engineering from Texas A&M Univeristy with a minor in mathematics. Aerospace engineering is very closely related to mechanical engineering, with additional focus in fluids and orbits. I graduated cum laude in 2012.

All Around Fantastic!

Dawn was a perfect fit. She had great insight and immediately recognized what would help my daughter in her approach to the pre-calculus problems. She was really quick to respond to our request, found availability to fit our needs, and then knocked it out of the ballpark with her ability to help my daughter with the problems. Could not be happier! Thanks Dawn!
