I graduated from Shaker High School in 2015 and have since moved on to the University at Buffalo. Here, I am pursuing a mechanical engineering degree and will be going into my junior year as of fall 2017. I have experience teaching and tutoring students at an after school program I volunteered at in downtown Buffalo. I also have helped to explain and teach concepts to many other fellow engineers at my university. I feel comfortable tutoring the subjects within the realm of math and science, specifically the topics that lend themselves to mechanical engineering. Physics based subjects are definitely the most rewarding for me to teach because I feel I have a good understanding of how they work and apply to the real world and I really enjoy showing others these connections. This leads into my main teaching philosophy which is, if you commit yourself to fully understanding a topic you will never feel lost on a test. Many people try memorizing formulas which I personally find tedious and a waste of time in some cases. However, if you truly understand the fundamentals behind the formulas then you will be much more equipped with the knowledge needed to pass your exams and work through the trickier questions. When I find the time to do something outside of school related activities I enjoy woodworking and hiking. In the next few years I hope to hike the 46 highest peaks in New York, thus becoming an official Adirondack 46er.
