I am currently pursuing my Master?s degree in Chemical Engineering from NYU-Poly, but spend most of my free time either inside reading or outside gardening and running. When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While gett...

Majoring in some type of engineering at a rigorous tech school means mastering single and multivariable calculus at a much higher level than a standard college or AP course. While mastering the specifics is important, I have found many teachers are often unable to convey the important underlying concepts. Understanding these concepts is important, and most of the time makes the tedious calculations much easier to see and understand. I have experience tutoring both AP Calculus courses (AB/BC), and experience tutoring single and multivariable for general programs as well as more challenging engineering programs.
Completing an engineering degree at a rigorous tech school means taking courses in mechanics, E&M, and optics/thermo much more rigorous than the average university or AP class. While that may provide some assurances on my subject knowledge, it does not indicate how good I am at getting through to students on a conceptual level. I have always had a passion for teaching, and I have tutored for both regents and AP physics, in addition to unofficially helping undergrads with their physics courses while at NYU-Poly.
