I have been working as a tutor for over two years now. I started out working in a computer science lab helping people on various assignments they had. I eventually decided I would like the experience of working as a private tutor and started doing so summer of 2013 and have continued ever since. I have tutored many subjects such as physics, calculus, precalculus, algebra, geometry, and java. I love the experience of helping a student gain a deeper understanding of a subject they have been struggling in.

I am currently majoring in physics at Sacramento State University, I planning on graduating spring 2015. Physics is a subject that requires you to have a strong background in many areas such as mathematics, computer, electronics and so much more. This same background also prepares me to tutor students in a wide range of subjects.

For students attending Sacramento State University I would be happy to tutor you on campus if that is your preference.

I have received the following 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

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.

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. In my introductory differential equations course, I received an A and had above 95% on all of my tests.

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.

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.

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 hard.
