I am currently a senior at the Colorado School of Mines, majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a special interest in heat transfer and fluid flow. I'm also getting a math minor in computational mathematics. As much as I love learning, I love teaching and helping my peers and many others understand the material with many years of tutoring experience. I work hard to make sure the subjects at hand are well understood as well as a fun, engaging, and accessible learning experience for everyone.
During my free time, I enjoy making my friends and family laugh, play piano and guitar, play video games, and weight-lift.
Thank you for viewing my profile and hope to see you soon.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I teach for understanding the material well enough where the student feels comfortable enough to explain the concept to a high standard. When the student can show mastery through teaching, they can show mastery on homework and exams.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Typically I want to get to know the student where I can identify their strengths and weaknesses as well as what they do and don't understand so I can help them improve in their subject they are struggling in. This way we can set a positive, fun tempo that will carry throughout many sessions.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
My personal way to stay motivated is to do the things that I enjoy and integrate the things that are fun with the subjects that are slow. By doing so, I can make boring subjects a little more fun. So I'd use my personal experience to help others stay motivated as well as by integrating what they like into everything we do.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
If a student is having a difficulty, I'd try new ways to explain the concept. This can include different organization strategies, a different approach to the problems, or even finding what is confusing and trying to clear it out.
