I have graduated from Huron High School in 2009. I then got my bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in Mechanical Engineering in 2012 along with a math minor. In 2016 I got my master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Currently I am working towards a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan.

I have started tutoring in High School (2008) when I began working at the Kumon Center of Ann Arbor. At Kumon I primarily helped students with K-12 math,including pre-calculus and calculus. I then privately tutored individual students in Geometry, Algebra 2, Physics, and Calculus during Summer 2010. Starting with Fall 2010 I started working as a teachers assistant for undergraduate physics courses. I helped physics students with statics, dynamics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and heat transfer. During Fall 2012 I started working in the Math lab at the university of Michigan, helping students with pre-calculus, calculus 1, calculus 2, multi-variable calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and probability.
From Winter 2013, I became a teaching assistant for several classes including dynamics and control, vehicle dynamics, and nonlinear dynamics. In these classes I helped create homework assignments, exams, lead discussion sessions, and office hours to help students understand the material.

Currently I can tutor mathematics from high school algebra and geometry to multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra. This includes SAT/ACT mathematics as well as GRE. I can also tutor physical science, physics including statics, dynamics, electromagnetics and thermodynamics.

In tutoring I seek the student to become an independent learner. In my students I like to develop a sense of discovery and pride of ownership of the knowledge, as this motivates students to cherish their acquired knowledge and seek knowledge on their own, past the tutoring experience.

I like to spend my free time around automobiles, which includes working on cars, driving cars (both competitively and for enjoyment), and going to car-related events.
