Regarding my educational level, I have a Master's degree in Physics from Western Michigan University, and now I am working toward earning my PhD in theoretical subatomic physics. Focusing on the theoretical branch of physics requires vast amount of mathematical knowledge or what we are used to call; mathematical tools.
I have a long experience conducting various physics labs. I also worked as a tutor in the Physics Help Room. My first tutoring experience ever was in free tutoring some relatives, friends and neighbors. I was glad to do that. Gradually developing a reputation as expected, later on I branched out.
Because of the large amount of information students receive in a short period of time, it is hard for students to create a genuine understanding and/or strategies to tackle new problems. That is why it is not unusual for students to seek extra help from a private tutor. My first aim as a tutor is to help the student to discern the line of reasoning behind all these information, and to see the mental building he/she is expected to see and to inhabitant. At this point, the student naturally will have the root confidence in answering any question and solving any problem, in principle. What is left is just a matter of exercising and practicing so the student moves up to the stem confidence.
From a practical point of view, my approach varies depending on the student’s needs. I start from topics the student is comfortable with and gradually move towards more complex areas.
Hopefully, I will be able to meet the exact needs of my student and build a close relationship based on mutual trust and respect. I am a highly qualified math and physics tutor. I love learning, and absolutely love to teach what I learn.
Algebra 1 is the first dedicated course for algebra. Algebra is a cornerstone of mathematics and is a topic most students will want to master in high school. Solid foundations in algebra will give students the ability to excel with related topics such as the ACT, SAT, probability, statistics, precalculus, calculus, chemistry, physics, etc. Students learn numerous concepts including linear equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, exponential functions, radical expressions, and rational functions.
Algebra 2 is the second course dedicated to the study of algebra. Algebra 2 expands upon the foundations created in Algebra 1. Together, Algebra 1 and 2 form a cornerstone of mathematics that most students will want to master in high school. Solid foundations in algebra will give students the ability to excel with related topics such as the ACT, (P)SAT, probability, statistics, precalculus, calculus, chemistry, physics, etc. Students learn numerous concepts including linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities, matrices (operations and determinants), quadratic functions and inequalities, polynomial functions, radical equations and inequalities, rational expressions and equations, exponential and logarithmic relations, and conic sections.
Calculus is another cornerstone of mathematics and is one of the more useful branches for high school and undergraduate students to master. Solid foundations in Calculus will allow students to excel with related topics such as differential equations, partial differential equations, physics, engineering, computer science, physical chemistry, etc.
Physics is challenging, because it requires students to describe physical systems using mathematics. Physics will allow students to excel with related topics such as medicine, engineering, architecture, computer science, physical chemistry, etc.
