Start setting up appointments for the Fall semester!
Openings available for areas of physics and math in the Atlanta area!
Do physics and math seem too confusing?
Are you struggling on your homework?
Are test questions not making sense?
Did the lecture go by too quickly?
Then Andrea is the person you are looking for! She has calculus, linear algebra and physics tutoring experience as has also been a teaching assistant for introductory physics and calculus. She is patient and caring and enjoys helping students work through problems and feel more confident with their material. Her teaching methods help the students to become more engaging with the material and helps to students to not feel like math or physics are so intimidating. She also spends time talking to her students about better student happens and, since each student is different, she tries to find what works best with you to help you learn what you can.
Andrea has also been apart of a few outreach programs including "SET in the City" in Boston which is an annual event held in Boston to increase the interest in science, engineering, technology and math for young girls. She has also attended middle and high schools in both Boston and Atlanta trying to make science more interesting and accessible to young students. While in Austin, she also volunteered in the Saturday Morning Math Group which involves a lecture given by local professors directed toward junior high and high school children which includes fun activities.
While she has primarily tutored students at the college level since she is currently a Ph.D student in the School of Physics at Georgia Tech, she would love to tutor a younger child in need of help as she has had a lot of fun on the outreach programs mentioned above.
As she is currently still a graduate student, weekends and evenings are the best time for her to meet with students, so if this works for you, please contact her if you are interested!
As a physics and math student, I have a lot of experience with differential equations from basic ODEs to nonlinear dynamics.
First starting with my undergrad differential equations course and my mathematical methods of physics course, I was well prepared to begin studies in areas of intermediate physics where differential equations are necessary. They are useful in classical mechanics to describe motion in the form of Hamilton's equations and Euler-Largranian equations, they are a foundation in electrodynamics courses which deal with anywhere from simple circuits to Maxwell's equations--a set of differential equations which give the motion of charges and current in electric and magnetic fields-- which can be combined to form the wave equation, and they are also important in quantum mechanics starting with Schrodinger's equation which describes the change of a quantum state with time.
Besides working with differential equations in all these areas in physics, my research field uses a lot of elements of differential equations. I study cardiac dynamics and other complex dynamical systems, where differential equations play a key roll. The heart is a oscillatory system which has motion that can be described by a propagating wave. The FitzHugh Nagumo differential equations are important in this area because they describe an excitable cell which we can use to then describe waves which propagate through your heart. Other research areas of mine include the Kuramoto model set of differential equations used to describe synchronizing a set of oscillators.
As differential equations are an important part of my area of field and my research in particular, I would definitely be able to help anyone with difficulties in this area of math.
As a physics Ph.D student, a lot of my coursework has used various topics in linear algebra. In 2008, I took a linear algebra course from Boston University and then the material was reinforced in advanced calculus, math methods for physics, differential equations, as well as quantum mechanics and electromagnetism.
I started graduate work in the math department at University of Texas-Austin where I took an applied methods of mathematics course which covered material such as finite and infinite dimensional matrix theory (e.g. orthonormality, eigenvalue problems, symmetric matrices, diagonalization, theory of Banach spaces, compact operators, spectral theory, and Hilbert spaces). Arriving at Georgia Institute of Technology, my physics course work, especially in quantum mechanics, used a lot of matrix theory especially pertaining to eigenvalue problems and adjoint, unitary and Hermitian operators to solve problems in wave mechanics.
Excellent Tutor I Highly Recommend — Andrea has tutored me in my second semester of Calculus and she is such a great help. She is very patient and brilliant, being able to think of the problems very quickly. We go back over lessons that I was taught in class, do practice problems, and she answers my detailed questions from my work outside of class. She also has been available for me to email her anytime with a question on homework or ...
