Matthew Tedesco

Matthew Tedesco

I am currently a graduate student in the Mechanical Engineering/Material Science department.  I am originally from the East Bay in California, and when I am not researching or taking classes I love to play music with various organizations on campus.  As a tutor I like to look at more than just the expressions and equations on the page and ask "why?"  I believe that by answering these questions you build a more fundamental understanding of the material you are learning which will help you throughout your studies.

Sandra Batakana

My name is Sandra Martha Batakana, a sophomore at Duke. I was born in Eastern Uganda, but went to high school for two years in the UK where I earned my IB Diploma. I am double majoring in Chemistry with a double major in Biology and Global Health. I look forward to going to medical school, with an ultimate goal of being a neurosurgeon. I love cooking and dancing. On campus, I am involved with Duke Global Neurosurgery and Neuroscience (DGNN) as a Bass Connections Student, The Penny Pilgram George Women’s Leadership Cohort, DukeAFRICA, Minority Association for Premedical Students (MAPS), Black Students Association among others. Fun fact. I am the only Ugandan undergraduate on campus. Teaching is one of my passions. My philosophy is; tutoring is like a candle; one can use it to light up so many more candles and have a better glow of knowledge. I struggled a lot in Math but my aim was to challenge the myth that “Duke Math is Hard” and that is why I am here to help you overcome such myths.
