Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My regular price is very fair given my background and understanding of where the student is in their level. I use to struggle with math and had to get a tutor to be where I am today and get my dream job at NASA. I do require to have a consultation with my student in person and online before we can discuss next steps. My initial meeting with the student is longer and will not over charge so the student gets to know who I am and we get a chance to learn each other's personality. Once we realize we can work together we can move forward.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. I do an initial consultation and go over the students work and areas of difficulty to ensure I know the subject 2. Then we review the students lesson plans 3. Go over a couple math examples slowly, breakdown the problems into sections to help the student dissect and gain a better understanding of the problem. 4. Finally I have the student workout the problem alone and I have them talk it through with me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm an engineer. I got my Bachelors in Civil Engineering from Purdue University and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Portland State. I worked for NASA Kennedy Space Center for 4 years. I have passed me Fundamentals of Engineering Exam and am now an entrepreneur.
