MIT Mechanical Engineering Alumnus with previous K-12 Math Tutoring Experience - Boston

Methodology

I work in a way that the students themselves tend to discover the approach toward a solution in a way that they can implement that process for all future problems.

I am patient and ensure that there is no pressure in a difficult situation so that each student feels comfortable taking the time they need to overcome an obstacle.

Background

I am a Mechanical Engineer II working in manufacturing in Massachusetts. I have previously worked at both a tutoring center and been giving private lessons for over 7 years in mainly mathematics and math-based subjects.
I have seen both an increase in practice test scores and subject grades as a result of my tutoring.
