My name is Joyce F., and I am a second-year master’s student in systematic theology at Wheaton Graduate School. I have a BS in physics from Wheaton and over three years of experience in tutoring and teaching high school and early college physics, math, chemistry, and writing. I have been a TA for college freshman level physics--the equivalent of AP Physics C--three times. One of those times, I had to lecture for three discussion sections of 25 students each.
In high school, I was a straight-A student, who took all honors and many AP classes. I was also on the math team and helped my high school win the state championships. I was a National Merit Finalist, received a 36 on the ACT and was accepted into several top 20 universities. More importantly, I enjoyed learning and worked hard to excel.
I believe that the heart of academic excellence is not about getting good grades or winning awards. In addition to teaching content and skills, I focus on communicating enthusiasm for the subject being taught and helping students develop a lifelong love for learning. I am a patient, understanding tutor, who enjoys breaking down concepts so that they are easy to understand. I work hard to identify each student's strengths and weaknesses and will work with your student to overcome his or her problem areas. I have written mini-lectures and problem sets for students before as supplements to their official homework when I thought that it would benefit the student.
This summer, I am available Mon-Thu from 9 am -5 pm. My resume and references are available on request, as well as a list of tutoring policies.
