Meeting the challenges of 21st century life requires a combination of mental flexibility and detailed technical knowledge that can be hard to acquire. I am committed to fostering these qualities in the students I tutor.
After working as a mechanical engineer in industry for over 10 years, I know how academic subjects translate into the ability to complete a job well and offer the kind of value employers will pay for (and colleges are after). I specifically know how abstract subjects like mathematics can be applied to real-world problems, and how much a little attention to writing and communication can help those who are already technically proficient in math and science.
I specialize in math and science courses where I believe my past experience is most relevant, but feel I am competent to advise students on reading comprehension portions of many tests, which benefit from a logical approach. I'm a believer in studying hard, but building balance into your life and schedule. A tutor should help you to study better and more efficiently so you can make time for the things that matter in your life.
I attended the University of Kansas, graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering. After several years in the industry, I am currently going back to school to receive my degree in education, with the intention to teach high-school mathematics courses. I enjoy reading, sailing, and biking.
