I have seven years of experience tutoring physics [mechanics] and calculus.
I tutored at Texas A&M University and students at the local community college.
With my help they were able to transfer to A&M. I also tutored in Houston while I was teaching high school level physics.

One particular client had previously failed physics 3 times. He was on a work visa from Great Britain and needed physics in order to continue on his degree plan and meet requirements for his job. He entrusted me to teach him physics for an entire 3 months to prepare for an all or nothing cumulative written and verbal exam. He passed and is still working for the same company in Houston.

I can tutor derivatives, kinematics, projectile motion in 1/2 dimensions, integrals, momentum, work/energy, circuits with resisters/capacitors, and circular motion, both angular momentum and rotational kinematics.
