Teaching since:

My name is Trevor Karpinski, and I'm a College student pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I have achieved an AA in Mathematics and a Certification of Pre-Engineering at Irvine Valley College. I am currently enrolled at California State University, Fullerton in my Junior Year, with my B.S. expected in Spring 2020.

At a young age, I was fascinated with physical objects and I loved to understand the inner-workings of everything around me. Mathematics came naturally to me, and as I advanced into High School, Engineering was suggested to me and I knew that it was the perfect path. My passion in Engineering is Mechanical Design, and I hope to pursue a career in Renewable Technologies in the Automotive industry.

Tutoring is a comfortable place for me because I love teaching others about the underlying concepts that govern large systems. I believe that understanding the details is what truly makes a great student, and learning from a conceptual angle has served me well, as well as the students I have tutored.

I have helped many students with Calculus, Physics, and Engineering classes. I have and continue to keep a detailed record of all class material, making past knowledge easily accessible for every tutoring session. I have a patient personality, and I am able to explain difficult concepts in much simpler, and easier to understand ways. Through years of tutoring, and actively being a student, I understand that everyone learns differently and I am equipped with several different techniques and teaching styles to uniquely help you understand tough topics in a customizable way.

I can tutor all levels of Math students, from Kindergarten through College level, including difficult topics such as Differential Equations, College-level Physics, and up to intermediate Chemistry.

If you're looking for help with homework, or help with understanding difficult concepts to get the A you deserve, I'm the tutor for you!

Trevor is a wonderful, down-to-earth, and patient tutor. He helped me through a tough period of Calculus 1 & 2 where I just couldn't figure it out. He was always on-time, precise, and thorough. His knowledge of Mathematics is very diverse and he always went above and beyond to ensure I understood it. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for any subjects he offers as he's very competent and kind.

Trevor is an extremely professional tutor who helped me understand a subject I struggled with for two semesters. Through supplementary material and concise explanations, he was able to make every topic much more clearer. His knowledge and passion for physics extends beyond the realms of my homework as he showed me not only how to use the equations, but how they were derived and why they work. He was always punctual and efficient. Highly recommend!
