Hey! I bet I can help you. I am generally laid back in my approach to teaching and strongly believe that EVERYONE can succeed in math and science. The nice thing about these subjects is that there is a right answer and there is always a way to get to it.
About my styleI love when students have questions. It will help me to help you. I remember hating when my teachers didn't take the time in class to explain the answers to my questions and I promise that whether you want the long or short answer I will give it to you or research it until I can. If you decide to set up sessions with me, it will be a discussion and an interactive learning process (you get lectured enough in class). When solving problems, I like to guide students to the answer without giving it to them; I have always found this to be the best way to learn. I can also provide full solutions when it comes time to study for that big test.
My backgroundI am a graduating senior completing both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the accelerated Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics program at Drexel University. In addition, I have completed all of the pre-medicine coursework requirements. I am a member of the Pennoni Honors College and an officer in Pi Tau Sigma, the International Mechanical Engineering Honor Society. Upon graduation, I will begin my Ph.D. in the same field, also at Drexel. My area of focus is biomechanics and I have worked in industry for a year designing orthopaedic implants and surgical tools, I have done undegraduate research in tissue engineering, and I am in the process of designing a new total ankle replacement for my Master's thesis.
