I encourage my students to become independent learners, insomuch to eventually eliminate the need for my services. Although I am confident in my ability to break down scientific concepts and principles, my goal is to guide the student through the lesson plan and develop crucial study skills, while resorting to explanations to avoid hindering the flow of the lesson. Unfortunately, most students who request tutoring in science have lost confidence in themselves from the shortcomings of the educational system. It is important for me to practice patience, empathy, and positive reinforcement to gain the student's confidence back.
I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a double major in physics and chemistry, a minor in mathematics, and advanced coursework in molecular biology and astronomy. I have training and three years tutoring experience from my time in college.
Received a 36 all three times I took the test.
My highest score on the test: 33.
I am proficient in Calculus through vector and multivariate calculus (usually covered in Calculus 3). I have had practice applying Variational Calculus in my physics coursework. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC test.
In college I took an advanced math class in Differential Equations. I also have appropriate experience applying linear algebra in many of my physics classes: mechanics (simple harmonic motion), electricity and magnetism (wave equation), quantum physics (Schrodinger equation), and thermal physics (multivariate differential equations).
I completed 55 hours of coursework in physics, receiving a GPA of 3.55 out of 4.0 and distinction in physics upon graduation. I have completed advanced coursework in Mechanics, Special Relativity, Electromagnetic Fields, Thermal & Statistical physics, condensed matter (solid state) physics, Quantum Physics, and Electronic Circuits. I received a 5 on both the Mechanics portion and the E&M portion of the AP Physics C test.

Linear Algebra in a Month — I emailed Kyle with a month before my summer break was over and going into my sophomore fall term saying that I wanted help learning linear algebra. We met and immediately made significant progress and had the entire month planned out. For me the key was that he was able to keep myself more organized and get me through the rougher portions of linear algebra. He is a great tutor and I highly reco ...
