Hello! My name is Brian; I´m a mechanical engineer who loves learning and helping simplify complex subjects. I tutored as an undergrad at UConn in math and physics and graduated with a Master´s in Mechanical Engineering with a focus in Thermal and Fluid Sciences (Combustion mostly) and minored in Computer Science. Have real-world engineering experience within aerospace (helicopters) and aeronautics (submarines).
Currently living on the road touring the country trying to explore all the great hiking, biking, climbing and music this country...
I was a tutor for 2 years at UConn´s quantitative learning center in Calculus I and II, Geometry (Euclidian), Physics I and II, and Entry level math
