My teaching philosophy is bottom up. I believe that learning the basics forms a strong foundation, which allows students to understand concepts more deeply. I base my lesson usually on the feedback of the student (i.e. if there is something he or she is struggling with, or there is homework).
I am a Systems Engineer, working with complex aerospace systems on military aircrafts and space vehicles. I have been tutoring in Canada since I was 15 (12 years of experience). My students have always received 90% or higher in the applicable subjects.
ENGINEER IN TRAINING (EIT) A mechanical engineering graduate who combines technical background with valuable project experience. Is passionate about innovation and space exploration and keeps up to date with the cutting-edge technologies. Collaborates as a team member to provide exceptional technical support. Also possesses excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to develop positive relationships both internally and externally. Continuously builds professional knowledge through online study from MITx outside of work. Exercises discretion and professionalism to handle sensitive information.

INTERMEDIATE SYSTEMS ENGINEER, GENERAL DYNAMICS, 2015-Present
On the Maritime Helicopter Program, investigated and performed root cause analysis for approximately 40 system problem reports; provided analyses and recommended solution to the Solutions Investigation Board for implementation.
Adopted system-engineering methodologies as part of the Aurora Data Management System development to include Link 11, Link 16 and Joint Range Extension (JRE).
Ensured that all designs follow the appropriate standards i.e. Military Standards (MIL-STD) or Standard Agreements (STANAG).
Collaborated with various engineering functions (e.g. Human Factors, Software, Operator Liaisons) for the purposes of design development and technical analysis.
Employed impeccable attention to detail in documenting tech-notes and design documents.
Employed impeccable attention to detail in documenting and performing integration and design verification tests to support debugging and de-risking software.
Performed requirement analysis, design, verification and validation at component and system levels to support the Integrated Product Team, and gained experience in working through a typical system development life cycle. Client Name
ENGINEERING CO-OP, LINAMAR CORPORATION, 2012-2013
Significantly improved business efficiency by programming a search/tracking engine in Excel VBA to digitize technical documents, and reduce search time by ~95% i.e. from 15 minutes to under 30 seconds, and labour. (Previously, technical documents were searched manually and without indexing and were inconsistent in accuracy and format.)
Employed impeccable attention to detail in reviewing risk assessments, risk control documents and technical manuals to support Product Safety manager.
Analyzed Test and Validation results by generating comparative matrices across major standards (ANSI/CSA, CE) to resolve discrepancies between design and manufacturing parameters.
Adopted a culture of lean principles and by implementing 5S methodology in the office.
TEAM LEADER, U OF T AERONAUTICS TEAM , PROJECT: CASI FREE FLIGHT
Selected as a team leader for University’s glider entry for the Canadian Aeronautics Space Institute Free Flight Competition (won 3rd place nationally in the competition).
Ensured that all principles were adhered to i.e. NASA Systems Engineering Principles, Lean Principles and DMAIC.
Managed the project from initial concept to final delivery whilst motivating a team.
Scheduled and coordinated work amongst team members and project personnel while tracking project goals and milestones by using Microsoft Office.
Gained working knowledge of aircraft engines and thrust calculations.
Assisted in designing and optimizing the airfoil and wing subsystem to account for stress distribution using ANSYS.
Developed a scoring function model in MATLAB to prioritize which design factors to be focus on.
