Hi! My name is Albert and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University, so I know what it takes to build strong math skills. I am also a veteran Surface Warfare Officer from the United States Navy, which means that from navigating warships, I have gained a deep, first-hand applied knowledge of vectors; momentum; geometry; trigonometry; and the relation between time, distance, and speed that few have experienced. It’s this combination of theoretical and practical knowledge that I have honed through over 5 years of tutoring into my signature tutoring style: 1. Assess where a student is at and how they learn best 2. Target areas of improvement with laser precision one at a time, getting to the root of students’ struggle or confusion 3. Reframe complexities in a simple way they will understand. 4. Review the concepts they have previously not mastered in light of their new understandings, and ensure a strong foundation and mastery is established by giving practice sets. 5. Build from this foundation in a step-by-step way, ensuring they fully comprehend new concepts as they advance, going back to step 1 and repeating this cycle as necessary. I am a detail-oriented and disciplined thinker who is passionate about sharing my knowledge to help students succeed while having an engaged, joyful experience.
