I love learning, and I believe that you can, too! I have a passion for helping others discover that math, physics, and computer programming are much simpler than they appear at first glance. With a little work, some systematic thought, and a bit of help from me, you can master these seemingly daunting subjects.
When we meet for tutoring, I won't just re-teach the material that you've already heard in class. Instead, I'll watch your problem solving habits to unearth systematic errors on the problem-solving level. In other words, I'll help you figure out WHY you're having difficulty instead of just showing you that your answer is wrong. In a typical tutoring session, we will discuss the ideas behind the problems at hand (and I'll ask you to do a good bit of the talking!), look at some physical representations of the concept, and work out some practice problems. So whether you learn by hearing, talking, seeing, doing or working hands-on, I'll look for your particular learning strengths and use them to help you learn in the way that works best for you.
I graduated from Taylor University, where I earned a B.S. in Physics/Mathematics Education (3.96 GPA) and was chosen as the Distinguished Physics Senior of my graduating class. I earned an Indiana Professional Educator's License for teaching physics and math in grades 7-12. During my one-on-one experience in tutoring college-level physics, mathematics, and computer science, I earned Regular Tutor Certification through the College Learning and Reading Association. But don't expect all these certifications to mean that I'm boring--I also worked for five years at a summer camp, where fun is the name of the game!
