I've been working at a local learning center for the last six months or so, where I teach their curriculum and do subject tutoring, primarily for high school students (they charge about 3 times what I do). In the past I've tutored college and high school students, and have also been a teacher. I taught about a dozen credit hours worth of physics labs and recitations after finishing my undergraduate degree. I was also a supplementary instructor for a linked English comp and college algebra course.
I can easily teach algebra, trigonometry, physics, and calculus. I can help with some of the more difficult mathematics courses, too. During my sessions I prefer to present the important material, and make sure its conceptually understood. Then, one may learn to apply the concept to the actual material. I won't do your homework, but I will help you learn to do it yourself.
Right now I'm working part time in Beaverton and doing private tutoring here in Portland. I don't drive, so I'll most likely bike to wherever our meeting location would be. For anyone in suburbia that wants me to travel to them, because of the time public transit takes, I would ask to adjust my already low rate for some kind of reimbursement for 2+ hours on public transit.
I'm currently applying to PSU for a graduate program in physics, but the earliest I could start would be Spring, so in the mean time I have enough time for new students.
