I enjoy making math and science more fun and understandable for middle school, high school, and college students. I graduated in spring '08 with a BS in Physics and Math and in spring '10 with a Master's in Engineering from Colorado School of Mines. I was the physics department tutor and supplemental instructor in college for three and a half years and am currently working for an engineering design firm. As of January 2016, I now have 11 years of tutoring experience! I have not always bee... [more]
I have helped many students with all levels of college math, including Algebra 2.
I have been tutoring calculus for ten years and the majority of my recent students were in calculus or calc 2.
I was trained as a Study Skills teacher during my employment at a tutoring center and have helped many students with this subject. I have material and curricula picked out to utilize in lessons to help students become more efficient learners. I can help them become more organized, prepare for tests, manage test anxiety, prioritize, and develop time management skills.
I completed a discrete mathematics course at Washburn as part of my undergraduate mathematics minor. I took the class in the spring of 2006. I have helped several students with the course since then and have revisited many of the concepts in my further studies.
I took Differential Equations when earning my Physics degree and have helped several students with the class since then. I have also revisited many of the concepts in my advanced physics and engineering classes so I have a thorough knowledge of the material and its applications.
In my position as an engineer, I regularly create and modify AutoCad drawings. The software that I am most comfortable with is AutoCAD LT 2008 and am familiar with most 2D commands. I have also used SolidWorks and ProEngineer and have about the same level of proficiency in all of those software programs.
I took Linear Algebra while completing my Physics degree for credit towards a Math minor. I have used the material several times since then in my advanced Physics and Engineering courses and have tutored the subject a couple times as well.
I have had several courses in Mathematica while completing my Physics and Engineering degrees. I have used it to do everything from making graphs and animations, to solving differential equations using the finite difference method. I am very fluent in using the visualization capabilities of the program as well as writing iterative code to use computational methods to solve advanced math problems.
