Mechanical Engineer with Physics and Engineering degrees, offering math and physics lessons in San Francisco.

Methodology

My main teaching method is to make sure that we have a strong understanding of the fundamentals that we can continue to build on with more complicated topics. Reviewing the fundamentals is also helpful in establishing a common vocabulary and getting a feel for the learning styles of the student.

Background

I am a Mechanical Engineer with a Bachelor's degree in Physics from McMurry University and a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University. I am new to tutoring, but I have experience in coaching baseball, which has helped in refining my teaching strategies.
