Calculus

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

In my education as a physics graduate student, I had to learn how to apply calculus to physics. Since then I have used calculus on an every day basis. Basic calculus, which a undergraduate student, or high school student would learn is the basis for everything else I do.

Another part of my education has been to...

Microsoft Excel

Excel is one of the oldest and most widely used spreadsheet programs ever. It can be used for all manner of analysis and planning. Complex problems and large sets of data can be organized using excel.

With my guidance a student would learn how to do all of the above and more.

####
General Computer

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

General computer literacy is the foundation of all more advanced knowledge in computers. I have been using computers since I was four. This gives me an intiutive knowledge of computers and computing which I would gladly pass on to you.

####
Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite area's of mathematics. In point of fact the study of what is known as differential geometry (a combination of calculus with geometry) is used in my scientific work. I can certainly help your student in high school or college with all manner of geometric problems.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing program with WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing of documents. I have been using this program for productive educational use since 1995. As a tutor I will provide patient instruction in the fundamentals of word processing with this program.

####
Physics

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Physics is the oldest and most fundamental of all the natural sciences. It is more than just a collection of equations to be memorized but a comprehensive philosophy of mathematical principles applied to nature.

I will teach a student how to approach physics problems and solve them in a careful systematic way...

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft power point is a program used for preparing presentations. In my time as a graduate student I have given many power point presentations in my time.

I would tutor a student in both how to create a presentation using the program and how to deliver it effectively.

####
Trigonometry

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Trigonometry is the study of measurement of angles and distances, literally the measurement of triangles.

I have great experience with this as I use it in my work on astronomy.

Part of my education has been to tutor undergraduate students in physics and mathematics as applied to physics. Students who...

Astronomy

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Astronomy is the study of heavenly bodies by careful observation and the application of physical principles to their motions, and nature.

My MS thesis at DePaul was in the subject of high mass star formation.

####
Physical Science

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Physical science is general and basic scientific literacy needed to be an informed member of society. I know this topic well and would be glad to share what I know with a student.

####
Elementary Math

Elementary mathematics is the basis of all future mathematical knowledge. From counting to understanding fractions and division tables I can help your elementary school student.

####
Elementary Science

Elementary school science is more than just a rote recitation of basic facts. I believe that from the very beginning of a childs education, science has to be taught like the art it is. Science is a structured but creative systematic inquiry into the workings of nature.

The basic scientific method consist of identifying a quesiton. Formulating a testable hypothesis, a statement of how and why something happens. Next we test the hypothesis via an experiment. Then based on the results...

Differential Equations

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Differential equations is the study of rates of change, a logical extension of calculus. In Calculus one learns how to take derivatives and integrals of functions. Differential equations involve some combination of derivatives and sometimes integrals. The aim of solving differential equations is to find the function which...

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is the study of abstract vector spaces. The equations of which are of the form.

Ax=y where A is a nxn matrix x is a vector and y is a vector.

My expertise in this subject stems from my education in physics. Linear algebra arises in problems where the math involves more than one variable. Linear algebra arises in Quantum mechanics. Indeed, the most fundamental equations of physics are matrix equations.

It is this practical and applied knowledge...

Linux

I have a Masters of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

I have been a avid user of Linux since 1997. In that time I have accumulated much knowledge of how Linux works. I also know a bit about debugging code and compiling programs.

####
Logic

I have a Master's of Science in Physics from DePaul University. My BS is from Northern Illinois University, where I will be returning to study for a PhD in physics.

Boolean logic is used in the formulation of proofs and the evaluation of logical propositions. This is used often in theoretical physics.

####
MATLAB

I have been formally taught how to write programs in Matlab throughout college, and have used it extensively in my graduate research .

####
Microsoft Windows

Microsoft windows 3.1 through Windows 8 are my area of expertise. I've used all of them. Windows is the most widely used operating system in the world. To use a PC one almost certainly has to use and understand Windows.

With my guidance a student will learn the usage of recent versions of Windows which they are likely to encounter. Everything from how to start to how to adjust the computers settings.
