YingI'm currently studying mechanical engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University. I love physics and math, and I've always excelled in these topics. As a tutor, I've helped students prepare for Standards of Learning exams, and I really enjoyed helping students improve their scores. I'm looking forward to assisting students in algebra, calculus, differential equations, multivariable calculus, pre-calculus, mechanical engineering, trigonometry, statistics, geometry, and Mandarin Chinese. When I have free time, I like to play chess, video games, and tennis.

ShaneI'm currently enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington, taking courses in German and mechanical engineering. My love of German is unmatched. I care deeply about the culture and language. Tutoring is a great way for me to share my passion for it with others. I have spent time living in Germany, where I studied and worked while I was an undergraduate. I spent a semester in northern Germany as well as a second in southern Germany, where I received a BMW-sponsored internship. While there, I was able to learn all about engineering from a German perspective. Aside from tutoring Germans 1 through 4, I also teach students conversational German and prepare them for standardized tests on the language. In addition, I tutor in math subjects like college algebra, AP calculus AB and BC, mechanical engineering, and science. I enjoy showing students the real life application of abstract concepts. I adapt each tutoring session to the individual student, based around the type of learner they are and what areas they struggle in the most. I try to impart the passion I feel for these subjects onto the student. Outside of tutoring, I am a highly active person. I compete regularly in triathlons and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

AlI studied at Johns Hopkins University to earn my masters in mechanical engineering. My coursework put a heavy focus on robotics, though I also took courses in electrical and mechanical engineering. I served as a teaching assistant in a robotics course as a graduate. I even won an award as one of the mechanical engineering department's best teaching assistants. While in school, I also served as an outdoor trip leader and instructor, working with city kids to educate them in survival. The time spent with them taught me how to explain completely foreign subjects to a child. My style of teaching is linear, working through the earlier subjects that are necessary to understand the later, more complex ones. I can notice when someone needs a bit more time in working with a concept. As a tutor, I work to correct lacking foundation provided to students in certain subjects. Students often find advanced mathematics difficult as a result. Whether I am tutoring elementary math or algebra, I take an individualized approach for every student. A personalized curriculum ensures that important concepts are explored thoroughly. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy engineering and testing drones, going sailing, and playing the violin, as well as reading.
