I hold a Ph.D. in physics from UC Riverside. My area of expertise is theoretical / computational astrophysics, which means that I have a deep understanding of physics, mathematics, astronomy, and software engineering,...but don't let the credentials scare you! I'm just an ordinary person who happens to be very curious.
You are probably here because you are having difficulty with a course and it is not practical (or not possible) for your instructor to provide the extra help that you need. My job is to provide the extra guidance, insights, assistance, and motivation that you need in order to reach your goals.
Although I am new to WyzAnt, I am not new to tutoring or teaching. I have tutored physics and math in my spare time for the past 11 years. While pursuing my Master's degree, I worked as a high school physics teacher at one of the top high schools in the United States. Later, I became the first physics graduate student at UC Riverside to teach a course as an instructor, rather than as a teaching assistant.
I have taught a broad range of students, including struggling 9th graders, community college students, upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and middle school science teachers. Thus far, all of my tutoring experience has involved physics, astronomy, and calculus, but I am very excited about the prospect of helping someone with computer science (e.g., algorithms, data structures, Unix/GNU/Linux, and certain programming languages and paradigms).
