Hello! My name is Hughie, but feel free to call me Stewie. I’ve lived in Cary, NC for almost two decades now and I attend NC State University now. I am a rising senior studying undergraduate Mechanical Engineering. While taking engineering courses I also conduct research in the fields of vibration damping and noise control. When I am not studying or working in the lab, I enjoy building computers, surfing, making playlists, speed cubing, mountain biking, gaming, talking politics and tutoring.
Ever since I started a small tutoring business in middle school, I have continued to grow in my aptitude for tutoring. Throughout every step in my educational career since then, I have been involved in a mentoring or tutoring program designed for my fellow peers. Most recently, I have tutored for the University Tutorial Program at NC State. I have studied and trained with a variety of techniques, such as active listening, ideation scaffolding, effective questioning, redirection and many others. Since starting my career at the UTC, I have continuously employed these techniques throughout my tutoring career. All of these methods are developed to result in the student’s retention of material, work ethic, testing skills and academic improvement.
My teaching philosophy revolves around the customization of my tutoring sessions to each individual student. Using different combinations of techniques to best match your learning style and expertise, we can achieve an efficient and effective rate of improvement.
I look forward to providing the guidance and structure to optimize your educational experience!
