Education

The University of Texas at Austin - Bachelors, Mechanical engineering

Experience

My parents were both teachers, and it was pretty obvious from a young age that I would be following in their footsteps. I earned my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. My tutoring experience begins long before that, though. I was tutoring math, science, and music since I was just 11 years old. That's more than two decades ago. I've continued tutoring throughout my life, moving on to working with elementary students on STEM subjects, and teaching small groups of students in coding for the computer. I have a leaning towards the maths and sciences, and can tutor students in pretty much any math or science subject there is. I like to pass on my excitement for the STEM area to the students I work with. I like to do hands-on study, using various machines of various sizes to show how concepts work in the real world, when possible. I've had some amazing experiences in my career, such as working on the cooling system for Mars rover cameras. I like it when I can work with students who are not confident that they can learn STEM subjects, because I know they can, and I feel pride in them as they grasp subjects they never thought possible.
