I have 10 years of experience tutoring/teaching undergraduate students in math/physics at the University of Illinois at Chicago while obtaining a PhD in physics. I've also tutored college and high school students through the African American Academic Network at UIC and the Columbia College Upward Bound program. Having come from a family of teachers, I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others and helping them reach their goals in education. I believe teaching is an art form, and I am always working to improve every aspect of my teaching style; I've found success by carefully listening to each student's questions to gain an understanding of which methods will work best for that particular student. In addition, having worked for six years as a mechanical engineer before pursuing my PhD, I can offer insight into the real world as well as guidance on possible career choices.
