EducationIn the process of completing my Master of Applied Science in Engineering Mathematics at Dalhousie University. Did my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, also at Dalhousie University.
ExperienceI've tutored on and off throughout University, mostly in the past 3 years or so since I've been a graduate student. During this time I've also worked as a teaching assistant to a number of professors; marking, holding office hours, writing homework solutions, you name it.
I enjoy tutoring, I love the subjects I've studied and I do my best to use that enthusiasm to your advantage.
Currently I tutor a mix of high school and university students, mostly in calculus and statistics. I have a fair few topics listed above, but it's hardly a complete list. If you have questions about your particular subject feel free to contact me, ideally with some example questions. I'll do my best to get back to you quickly about whether I'll be able to help or not.
HobbiesI am most in my element when asked to teach for understanding. I don't think that doing the same questions over and over is an incredibly helpful action to learn something. I think the best way to learn a topic is to fully explore problems to understand the concepts involved and how they relate to other sorts of problems.
I'm patient, and I realize that not everyone understands things in the same way, so I will do my best to explain the concepts in different ways so that they make sense to you.
If what you're looking for is review for a test, or some help working through homework concepts, bring it along. I'll explain, to the best of my ability, what the questions are asking, how I identify key parts of the question, and will try and give you some forewarning about tricky types of questions that might appear on a test. Most homework assignments or practice tests tend to take a bit more than an hour to go over, so please keep that in mind when budgeting for time, rushing things doesn't do you any favors.
If you're just looking for someone to grill you on test questions you would most likely be better off with someone else. I want to give you the benefit of my experience to help build your confidence about the questions, so that you're ready for whatever is coming.
