I have my Master's Degree in Geotechnical Engineering and enjoy helping others understand material in mathematics and the sciences after having much exposure to it myself. I have 2.5 years of formal tutoring experience and have also held multiple positions as a Teaching Assistant for engineering courses.
Finally having the lightbulb go on when tackling problems is rewarding, and being able to help others experience this moment is what motivates me. Even as a tutor, working with students helps me to view problems under a different light and broaden my understanding. The more ways I learn to look at a problem, the more effectively I can guide students towards success.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Getting to know about the student, their interests, and their academic goals helps me to understand the student and their views on the subject matter. From there, I try to find the tutoring style which works best for that student (visual, hands-on, etc.) based on their learning preferences.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Master of Science in Civil Engineering, with a Minor in Mathematics
2.5 years of tutoring experience
1 year of being a Teaching Assistant, which includes grading and holding office hours
How did you get started teaching?
I was always a helpful resource among my Engineering peers, so I obtained a tutoring position to expand and assist students of any background. My desire to provide academic support for others likely stems from my goal to become a college professor and influence students to reach their full potential.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What topics do you struggle with the most? What are your studying habits and can you improve them? What style does your current teacher use and what style would you prefer?
