I am a highly motivated professional that has a great zeal for educating, by providing tools needed for success and the motivation to use those tools. I enjoy helping students of all ages to be successful and feel that everyone can learn if they have the desire. A student needs the tools for success and the motivation to use them. I have the great ability to figure out how a student learns from the three types of learning. I integrate all three methods of learning within my tutoring and can p... [more]
Algebra 1 is an important class for a student that is preparing to go to college or to a technical school. The tools in this class prepare a student for Geometry and Algebra 2. I have great knowledge of Algebra and it was my first class that I taught at the High School level.
I taught this class for many years and found that the skills needed to be successful in this class are an important part of Advanced Mathematics classes above Algebra 2.
Physics is the study of the physical that govern our world. I had to use them to design equipment. I taught Physics at the High School level.
I took Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 with the labs. As a Chemical Engineer I had to be able to use the chemistry of the process to develop the most efficient manner of developing the Organic Product. I made B's in both chemistry classes also and did all the work needed to be successful in a class that had a 50% drop rate. I also have taught Chemistry at both the High School and College levels. This is a class that I have a clear understanding of and it is very important to all those in the medical fields.
Chemical Engineering is designing equipment by use of the physical laws (physics) and chemistry laws. Newtons first and third laws (conservation of mass and energy) allows us to write mass and energy balances across a piece of equipment. I have worked in designing waste water treatment plants, water (potable) treatment and combined cycle power plants. I have also taught mathematics, physics and chemistry in the past (mathematics and chemistry at the college levels) so the next topic for me to teach should be engineering.
While I was studying Chemical Engineering I took many Civil Engineering classes as core classes and as electives. The classes that I took as core classes that were Civil Engineering classes were a Materials class, Engineering Statistics and a class in Linear Algebra was taught by the Civil Engineering department. The classes that I took as electives were environmental classes which were a part of the Civil Engineering curriculum. Those classes were Air Pollution Design, Waste Water Design and Environmental Equipment Design (which is the taken to work in Environmental Engineering). I have also worked designing Water Treatment Plants and Waste Water Treatment Plants.
