ExperienceWhat I will do for you: Our first meeting will be used to develop a simple, yet effective academic plan to accomplish your goals. We will discuss your weaknesses, strengths, and problem areas first and move forward from there. If the subject is physics, for example, I would like to know how the student is studying the book and problems, and develop a plan for the student so that they can eventually become an effective independent learner.
Each week, I will devise a progress report for parents or the student. This is so we can discuss your growth and take an opportunity to talk about new or persisting problem areas. The tutoring plan will evolve from tutor/tutee communication.
Below are some of my experiences with tutoring and teaching:
*Tutored for two years at the collegiate level for intro and intermediate Physics and Math courses.
*Instructed a supplemental component to an E&M physics course twice a week for a year.
*Undergraduate TA for two physics courses.
Overall, I've always had a passion for teaching and helping others learn. I often find myself helping friends and family with coursework because I enjoy explaining concepts and finding better ways to articulate complex ideas. I am a patient tutor with hundreds of hours of experience.
HobbiesI enjoy running, reading, and learning. I love pets (dogs and cats equally). Love birds too!
