Engineering

I am a senior in the General Engineering program (Mechanical Option). I tutor for Dynamics and Fluids primarily, but I will try my best to help with any General Engineering class. I am originally from a small town near Houston, Texas, but I have been in Montana for over five years now. I started at Montana Tech in January 2011. I enjoy living in Butte, and I especially like to hike, mountain bike and rock climb in the area!

I was born in Missoula, Montana, but I was raised right here in Butte. This is my third year at Tech, and I am studying to be an Electrical Engineer. I am currently tutoring Chemistry and Math at the Tech Learning Center.

Justin Boland

E-Circuits

I was born in Korea and moved to Texas when I was a baby. Ever since I was a little toddler I loved taking electronics apart and putting them back together. Also I always loved numbers, and as I got older, I always had a natural tack for mathematics. This led to my choice to be an Electronic Engineer. Now I am a junior level Engineer and I love it, and feel like I am in the right place. Some things I like to do are ski, camp, hang out with friends, play games, and spend time with my family.

Don’t be afraid to come in, even if it’s just to say hello!

Chemistry/Psychology

I am 21 years old and a junior at MT Tech. My major is cellular biology and I hope to attain a minor in chemistry. With these, I want to go to Med School and earn my right to practice general medicine in a clinic. I also have a 5-year old son and he's probably the reason why I am working so hard to get where I want to go. I tutor psychology and chemistry in the Learning Center, so come see me! I love helping people understand these topics.

Math

I lived in quite a few places growing up, but was born in Libby and went to high school at Libby High School. I graduated with a B.S. in Math with a focus in Secondary Education in December 2009. After student teaching at Butte High School for a short time, I decided to come back to school, and the Geophysics graduate program at Montana Tech was the best fit. I am currently in my third year of graduate studies in the Geophysical department, and am working on a graduate thesis entitled Finite Element Modeling of Geothermal Resources. I have been an active volunteer DJ at KMSM-FM radio for 7 years.
