About this tutor

I have been working in the Electrical/Automation industry for a few years now and I want to help share my knowledge that may help students learn. I dont just want to acheive and answer, I want the student to feel comfortable with their work and devolop an understanding that will last past the homework.

I take great pride in helping others learn and grow. I remember may times when someone else has either sat with my or just givin me passing wisdom that has stuck with me. I want to try and contribute a small part of that to students in the hopes that it will help them down the road.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I want to start where the highest level of comfort is to devolop a base and then build on that with what they want to work on. Drawing from both the known and the unknown.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been working as an electrical/controls engineer for the past 3 years and have a degree in Robotics Engineering from Penn State. I have made every mistake imaginable so I have alot of experience with what not to do and that in turn has taught me better ways to approach problems which I hope to pass on to others.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I want to set the average price around $30/hr. Depending on the level of education this price may need to be adjusted. If it is just simpler math then we can talk about lowering it.


How did you get started teaching?

I am a Ski Instructor and I have been doing that for about 4 years now. I have taught every age from 3 - 75. I love interacting with a student and helping them learn instead of just throwing knowledge at them. I hope I am able to do this in an academic way as well.


What types of students have you worked with?

As a ski instructor I have worked with all ages of students and understand how to communicate with the various age ranges. Communicating a more academic-based information stream will come with its own challenges and I hope to work with my students to find the best way to present and channel that knowledge.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I finished designing a yarn spinner for my partner. She is an avid knitter and I decided I could improve upon her existing yarn ball winding device. I 3d printed the body and attached a motor to replace the crank. It didnt work out as I had hoped but the process was very fun and I hope to work on similar projects in the future.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Depending on what you are asking for, make sure you know what it is you are struggling with. Engineers tend to be very set in certain areas after a while, so asking for a broad expalnation may be trickier than you think. For instance, if a student were to ask me anything about basic circuitry I would be more than happy to help, but if they had specific issues with lets say inductance properties, I may not be the guy to ask since I have not had much experience with that.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

When I approach a student I want to know 3 things:
1. What is your current level of experience/skill.
2. What have you done/tried that either works or doesn't.
3. What do you hope to accomplish from a tutoring session.

Goals are very important to set at the begining of a lesson because this will have an effect on the rest of the time. The longer I can spend working towards your goal the more you will get out of it.
