"I have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. I have experience tutoring a variety of engineering subjects and hope to be able to help you succeed in the demanding classes characteristic of engineering. I also like to offer tips on test taking, balancing school and life, studying effectively, and finding the best available resources for help.

Effective learning takes teamwork. I really enjoy being involved in collaborative education because I think that being able to teach a concept or subject is the best way to keep it sharp in the mind. Likewise, my approach to tutoring is focused more around a discussion than a lecture style, where you and I are able to figure out the material together. We'll talk through your ideas and reasons as we work out example problems and review key concepts.

I am familiar with a wide range of topics. I passed 11 AP tests (Human Geography, European History, Spanish Language, English Language, English Literature, Statistics, Calculus, Psychology, Physics Mechanics, US Government, and Comparative Political Science), and participated in my University's Honors program specifically to make my broader education more meaningful. Because of this, I am eager to work with students who might be struggling in topics that aren't necessarily their favorite subject to find ways to build from things they are already familiar with.

Most of my formal tutoring experience has been at a collegiate level, specifically working with student-athletes. I also have lots of informal experience teaching things like sports, cooking, and school subjects to younger age groups, from elementary school to high school. I love seeing students get excited about a topic as they have success with it. I am a big believer in helping kids get a good academic start as early as possible to shape their future.

I am excited to get together with anyone else who loves learning and is willing to work hard to overcome those difficult classes that we all get stuck in!" less...
