my name is Chadwick and I am a 4th year physics undergrad at UC Davis. I have taken many physics classes, 7 math courses and 3 chemistry courses. I do research with the Nuclear Physics Group here at UCD: this also helps my understanding of chemistry, because of the similarities in nuclear physics and chemistry. Although I have taken 3 chemistry classes and am sufficient in introductory and general chemistry, biochemistry and organic chemistry I cannot tutor. Math and physics is where my specialty lies. Since I am a physics major I have extensive problem solving in both math and physics. I have only tutored for math and physics to friends and family, but am looking to expand into becoming a paid tutor.
My tutoring approach is one of patience and understanding. Just because someone knows the material does not make them suitable for becoming a tutor. A tutor needs to be able to convey the material clearly and in a simple matter so that the student can learn. Another important thing, is that the tutor is not there to give the student answers, but to teach the student and help him or her out with their weak points. Lastly, patience is very important. A tutor cannot become easily frustrated with a student because the information does not come easily to the student. I feel I obtain the qualities that would make me a great tutor.
Algebra 2 is in important and is the last step before the higher maths of trigonometry, precalculus and calculus. I use algebra 2 often and can help convey the knowledge in a clear and concise manner. It is important to understand algebra 2 before one moves on to the next math courses.
I have taken two courses on C++ and also I have used it in my research for almost 2 years. It is a rewarding yet sometimes frustrating language to learn. Practice, practice, practice is the best way to learn this.
I received an A in Differential Equations and have used it in many upper division physics classes, like; Electricity and magnetism part A and B, Analytical Mechanics part A and B, Quantum Mechanics part A and Mathematical Methods in Physics part A. In many of these classes I have also used partial differential equations.
Linear algebra was heavily used in Quantum mechanics and mathematical methods in physics so I have a firm grasp of it. Linear algebra is very conceptual and is often difficult to visualize (in some cases impossible). I have experience with this and hopefully can help with the conceptualization of the material.
My major is physics so I would enjoy tutoring this. Compared to math and chemistry, physics is much more difficult and more difficult to tutor (in my opinion); however, I would like to tutor it to further my understanding and also study for the GRE test for graduate school.
I have taken 3 calculus courses, linear algebra and differential equations. Also I have taken over 10 physics courses. All of these courses require extensive use of precalculus. I often think of precalculus as the vocabulary of much of the later maths.
SAT math is notorious for trying to trick you. There are a couple of tricks but the best way to prepare is to practice and practice more. I have studied for the GRE (the grad school version of the SAT) and can provide help and insight. It is helpful to work through problems from previous tests which I have done.
