I have 3 years of experience teaching college classes and tutoring on all levels of math, science and writing.
I can tutor students in Physics(all branches), Algebra, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I can also help with Philosophy (help understanding it or help writing papers). I even helped one student pass his Logic class!
My top priority is to give students a conceptual understanding of the material (as opposed to rote memorization). I do this by asking the student questions to gauge their understanding, then giving advice or practice problems to personally address the material they don't understand. I also like to encourage them by pointing out the things they do understand. I believe in being personally friendly but intellectually demanding.
I have been using differential equations for the last 4 years of my Physics classes, and for 2 years in my research. Differential Equations forms the foundation of Quantum Mechanics, which is my primary area of study.
My specialty in Physics is Quantum Mechanics, which uses linear vector spaces, an advanced concept in Linear Algebra. Not only did I take a class in the basics of Linear Algebra as an undergrad, but I have been using the advanced concepts of linear vector spaces for the last three years in my Quantum Mechanics courses and research.
James is brilliant — James has been patient with my son and my son is loving math. What a change. When you like the subject, the grade improves. Thank you James ...
