Ph.D. in Engineering with 6 years research experience at NASA offering math lessons in Hampton Roads

Methodology

I believe in first identifying what the student has trouble with. Once the problem area is clearly identified, I point out the key concepts that are required to be understood by the student. After teaching those key concepts, I try to test their understanding by giving them examples, a few problems to work on, and then relating that knowledge to real world applications so that the student can grasp the importance of the topic they are learning. I have taught students using this technique and they have not only been able to understand the course material, but also appreciate why they were learning it.

Background

I am an engineer and build robots in my startup company. I received my Ph.D. in engineering while having an amazing research experience at NASA. I have received several scholarships and won competitions during my education career. Today I use a lot of math, data analysis, and Artificial Intelligence for my work but all this has been possible because my fundamentals were clear. While you are in school, it is important to understand the basics and use it to build and understand more involved topics.
