Now, we have two college graduates in my immediate family; my younger brother and me. In summary, my vision in life is very simple; to inspire hope in hopeless situations and I ultimately want to be that positive change I want to see in this world. Hopefully, do it with some class, humor and dignity.... Every tutoring session is an opportunity to engage in some awesome intellectual conversation outside the classroom. It provides an atmosphere to be creative and have fun with our study materials while developing some mental retentive and comprehensive muscles.

At the same time, I helped my fellow French students understand the relationship of integration with area under or above a function on a graph, and helped them use this relationship to demonstrate our findings in Excel (Microsoft Office).

Nick ...and autonomous navigation of robotic systems. In my tutoring I have always strived to take a very practical approach. I believe that both memorizing equations, or “plug and chug” techniques are both inadequate. Conceptual understanding and practical application are both equally important as one informs the other. I know a student understands a topic when they are both able to discuss its implications as well as solve numerical problems. Math and physics are some of...
