Experienced Mechanical Engineer (over 25 years) offers Math and Physics lessons in Cleveland, Ohio

Methodology

I teach as I like to learn, visually. I use a white board and/or multiple graphic examples that highlight what I'm trying to get across. I like getting as much information from the student so that I can home in on how they like to learn and what works best for them.

Background

I am an experienced Mechanical Engineer who's been tutoring students since undergraduate. I have a Bachelor and Master degrees in Mechanical Engineering and still use my Engineering Math and Physics on a daily basis. I like to use examples from real life that students can easily relate to and help them visualize what is going on with the equations.
