I am currently an undergraduate computer engineering student at Oklahoma State University. I am a member of my school's (The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering) academic honor society, Eta Kappa Nu (HKN). As a part of my HKN membership, I engage in weekly tutoring for the underclassmen of my school. My tutoring for HKN mostly involves teaching basic concepts of electrical circuit analysis as it relates to my school's introductory course "Introduction to Electrical Science".
The area that I am most knowledgeable of and comfortable tutoring is mathematics. As an engineering student, I use mathematics very frequently and am a strong believer in the value of mathematics, even for persons in non-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. In addition to mathematics, I also enjoy electrical science and computer programming.
I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn and understand mathematics and gain value from applying it in their professional and non-professional lives. It provides an essential framework for modeling and understanding the world and is the root of many worthwhile fields of study.
Keeping the student's perspective in mind when tutoring is important for teaching the student successfully. Subjects that a student is having difficulty with can sometimes seem intimidating to the student. For these reasons, I try to always remain patient and empathetic when guiding a student through a lesson.
My particular method is generally example-heavy and process-focused. I find that myself and many that I teach learn best through doing (i.e. working examples and practice problems). This philosophy can, of course, be adjusted if need be.
When I'm not working or studying, I enjoy cooking, drawing, mechanical keyboards, and PC gaming.
