About Me

Experience Summary

I earned a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington, where I tutored for 2 years in the subjects of physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, engineering mechanics and thermodynamics. In addition to my technical background, I studied English and liberal arts for 2 years and wrote fiction for my college magazine. Over the past 2 years I have worked as a volunteer tutor with students in Chicago ranging from 7th grade through college, teaching English, mathematics and science. I am an experienced engineer and technician, and can readily communicate the relevance of math and science to students at all levels. I am currently pursuing a graduate degree in engineering.

Teaching Style

I am extremely patient and even-tempered, but also very focused and passionate about education. Communicating with the student and parents is vital to the tutoring process. It enables the understanding of goals, expectations, challenges and different learning styles. One of my personal strengths is organizing and clearly explaining complex material. This, along with completely answering questions and reinforcing the subject matter, I feel are the keys to learning and retaining knowledge. I believe that demonstrating a strong work ethic (through punctuality and preparedness) and an enthusiasm for academics has had a positive effect on my students in the past. I truly enjoy tutoring and try to make a difference in the life of each student.
