Hi my name is John. My passion in life is to understand how the universe works. As such I am currently majoring in physics. I also have many other interests to such as computers, math, astronomy, philosophy and many others.

I also enjoy working with others to help them learn something new. As your tutor I would feel it is my role to help you truly understand the subject. This means much more then just passing the exam next week. That being said when you do understand the subject better you will be certain to pass your tests.

I have worked in a computer science lab helping students with their projects. This was a great experience it helped me to see how much I enjoy helping others learn.

Awards and Honors from California University of Sacramento physics department:

Awarded the Maxwell Physics Scholarship for Fall 2012, Spring 2013, Fall 2013

Awarded the Vanderberg Scholarship on May 1st 2014

Awarded the Edwin Iloff Physics Scholarship on May 1st 2014

Inducted into Sigma PI Sigma Physics Honors Society on May 1st 2014

John's subjects

####
Algebra 1

I apply algebra on almost a daily basis. It would be impossible to study subjects such as calculus and physics without algebra. I have also had experience tutoring many people in algebra. Algebra at this level is largely about solving problems so as your tutor I would primary focus on your ability to solve and understand the solutions to the problems.

Algebra 2

I apply algebra on almost a daily basis. It would be impossible to study subjects such as calculus and physics without algebra. I have also had experience tutoring many people in algebra. Algebra at this level is largely about solving problems so as your tutor I would primary focus on your ability to solve and understand the solutions to the problems.

####
Calculus

I have taken three semesters of calculus in college, including vector calculus. I also have experience applying calculus in my physics courses.

####
Physics

Physics is a subject that I truly enjoy. Every since I was young I would wonder about how the universe works. Now I as a physics major every time I solve a problem I am a little closer to that elusive goal of understanding the universe. I have completed the standard calculus based physics series. At the junior/senior level I have taken Classical Mechanics, Thermodynamics. Electromagnetism, Into to Modern Physics, Scientific Computing, and Electronic Instrumentation.

####
Java

I have had about 3 years of experience programming in Java. I have a decent knowledge of data structures and algorithms; however most of my experience is in creating simulations. I have also had quite a bit of knowledge tutoring people in java while I worked in the computer science lab at Sierra College.

Study Skills

Through out my years in school I have learned to develop excellent study habits. Through tutoring I have also been able to see where other students struggle with there study skills and have been able to help them strengthen them. One of the best ways of helping get your work done is to develop a weekly plan, so this is where I would start helping. A plan not only gives you a guide line of when you should get things done it also gives a since of accomplishment that motivates you to keep working...

Differential Equations

I have a strong background in differential equations. So I will be able to help you with any introductory course in differential equations. I am familiar with the common techniques in a first course in differential equations, such as separation of variables, solving linear differential equations, exact equations, Laplace transforms, and many more. I am also experienced in applying differential equations to real world problems, such as population models, motion with air resistance, and RLC circuits...
