After graduating high school as valedictorian, I studied Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. I chose engineering because of my love of math & science subjects that came naturally to me. During my junior year, a professor I worked with strongly suggested I pursue grad school, telling me he thought it would be a good fit. So after graduation, I attended the Georgia Institute of Technology to earn a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I took advantage of Georgia Tech's study abroad program living and learning in eastern France, where I became fluent in the French language.
Upon earning my degree, I was hired by Fortune Global 500 company in the Energy Sector where I held various technical positions worldwide in countries like Kazakhstan, Turkey, Scotland and France before coming back to the US in 2011.
I tutor math and science, with a focus on more advanced subjects such as Geometry, Trigonometry, Algebra, Calculus and Physics. These are the subjects I enjoy most because they allow us to model and understand the world we live in.
I have benefited from tutoring in the past, and I believe a mentor can help fill the gaps in a student's education. I do this by explaining concepts and ideas in ways that are easier to understand and relate to. Education is extremely important for success in life. Several members of my family have lifted themselves into success and happiness through education.
I enjoy staying active by playing sports and partaking in the great outdoors. Travel is a passion of mine, whether exploring a new continent or something around the corner. Scuba diving is a recent hobby I've added. It's an incredible feeling to dive on an underwater wreck site!
I look forward to working with you and achieving amazing results!
