I believe anyone can learn anything, even if it may take longer or a different route from other people. It's about motivation, understanding, and practice, and I hope you believe that, too.
I'm a bioengineer and mechanical engineer who's starting his own business in Austin, TX, in educational software and games. When I'm not developing products, I like to help educate others directly, through training sessions and tutoring.
If you'd like help with mathematics or English, especially for standardized tests, then I definitely can help you. I have experience directly teaching undergraduates in math and engineering, as well as years of experience training adults in a range of technical subjects.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Everyone can learn. No matter where you're starting out, it's possible to work through challenging topics to increase your knowledge, skills, and understanding. It takes motivation, thinking, and practice to get there.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would get to know the student and what the student is looking for. I then would set expectations, find out what the starting level of knowledge is, try a few practice exercises, and go from there.
