I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, where I received a solid grounding on the principles of engineering, calculus and algebra. I am looking forward to attain my maters and eventually PhD and hence become a professor. During my undergraduate I have tutored students for about 2 to 2.5 years.
I tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Math, Mechanical Engineering, Pre-Algebra, Science, and Trigonometry. I like to tutor all the above mentioned subjects as I love numbers and also like to solve problems. I teach by starting with basics and ensuring students understand base concepts before moving on to more complex material.
