Aerospace engineer (B. Eng 1998) available for math/physics tutoring in Kanata & Ottawa area

Methodology

I have no fixed approach to any particular subject. In general, I try not to present material in lecture format. I prefer to ask questions in an effort to understand the nature of what is giving a student difficulty and then provide feedback, guidance and suggestions to hopefully allow the student to arrive at their own understanding. My feel is that this better serves future retention, and when a student really understands a concept they can better apply it in unfamiliar situations while also having less of a struggle when asked to build upon it.

Background

My resume below fairly well details my academic and career related information. I am an aerospace engineer having graduated from Carleton in 1998 and spent numerous years in that and other unrelated industries. I have the good fortune to have always possessed exceptional strength in the math and sciences academically, and even after a 10 year break from high school I was able to obtain grades sufficiently high enough to enter a very competitive University program on an academic scholarship.

While at this stage I have somewhat limited experience with tutoring, over the last three years I have worked with one particular student to complete their academic upgrades for college entrance, and subsequently complete their first term.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $110
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

I'm willing to negotiate rates for various factors and circumstances. Feel free to enquire.
I have posted a rather large radius for my willingness to travel, but the "Cost for Travel" option only allows for specifying a fixed rate...therefore I will state it here: $0.50/km (one way distance)
