...As a student of Mechanical Engineering, I focused on understanding concepts rather than memorization, an approach that led to academic success. I carried this approach to my position as a Teaching Assistant at UC Berkeley, where I taught introductory engineering courses for three semesters. In ...
...I help my students understand they are capable of more than they think they are! I have formal training as a tutor and have experience working in schools in the High School and College level. I have previously helped teachers and professors create worksheets and handouts for class materials and have tutored many different grade-levels of students.

I find that by pulling from other subjects students are able to become more focused because they begin to care about the material. If interest and the willingness to learn are present then the only thing left is the work!
For forty years, I taught chemistry and developed academic advising programs at CSUS. In retirement, I have continued to mentor science majors at both CSUS and community colleges and have volunteered at the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, specializing in math and the physical sciences. My teaching approach tries to make complex subjects accessible to my students.
Background: I am currently studying to get my BS in Mechanical Engineering from California State University Chico, and therefore have a lot of experience in math and physical sciences; including chemistry, physics, dynamics, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and energy systems. ...
