Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I took AP Calculus in high school and scored a 5 on the AP exam, which is the highest score possible. Because of this I was able to skip Calculus I and II in college and went straight to Calculus III where I got the highest score in the class on all my exams. As a Physics major as well as a graduate student in Physics, we used Calculus on a daily basis to solve Physics problems. I have tutored this subject extensively both privately as well as for the two universities I attended and have had much success in improving students' grades in all of Calculus I, II, and III.

As a physicist, I have to solve differential equations all the time. In fact, that is the majority of what physics is -- using the tools developed over the past few centuries by mathematicians to solve/gain insight into physical problems in order to better understand how the universe works. I've tutored countless students at Northern Arizona University in this subject while working for the Learning Assistance Center. And at Georgia Tech, while working on my Ph.D., I have tutored several students privately in this subject as well. Whether it be Ordinary Differential Equations or Partial Differential Equations, I have many years of experience tutoring both.

I took this course as an undergraduate at NAU and earned the highest grade in the class (a high A). I also tutored numerous students in this subject while working as a tutor in the Learning Center at NAU. And at Georgia Tech, I tutored several students privately in this subject as well.

I have a PhD in Physics which is the fundamentals on which Mechanical Engineering is based. I have a B.S. in Mathematics. I have taken Statics and Dynamics and got an A in both courses.

Physics is definitely the subject that I am most qualified to tutor. I have been interested in Physics for as long as I can remember. I took AP Physics in high school and scored a 5 on the AP exam. I have a B.S. in Physics with a 4.0 GPA, an M.S. in Physics, and recently I earned a Ph.D. in Physics. I have tutored and taught this subject off and on for over 13 years and plan to continue teaching this subject well into the future.

Calculus as well as Physics are the two subjects that I am strongest in. I have tutored these two subjects and used them in my academic career more than any of the other subjects on this list. So, I don't feel arrogant in saying that my foundations in Calculus are very strong. Precalculus is precisely that -- it is a subject which lays the foundation in order to prepare a student to do well later on in Calculus.

In middle school and high school I took Spanish I, II, III, and IV. In my senior year I took AP Spanish and scored a 5 on the AP exam, which is the highest score possible. Before enrolling at Northern Arizona University, I spent 6 months travelling around Costa Rica during which time I became quite fluent. At the university level, I have taken all sorts of Spanish grammar, oral, composition, and linguistic courses with a 4.0 GPA. I was only two classes away from getting a Bachelor's in Spanish but decided to go ahead and graduate so I could pursue my Ph.D. in Physics at Georgia Tech. I have tutored numerous students at both the high school and the college level and I feel that, besides English, it is the most useful language to know.

I have used Trigonometry so much over the course of my academic career that I don't even really think about it any more (kind of like walking). I have used it to solve problems in Geometry, Calculus, Differential Equations, Engineering problems, Physics, etc. I don't like the way it's normally taught though. Hardly any memorization is required and most textbooks fail to show that almost everything in trig can be derived from a few basic principles. I have tutored this subject for many years from this perspective and have had quite a lot of success in improving students' grades.
