If you need help with math or math heavy subjects such as physics or finance or with the math sections of standardized tests, I can help. I have two masters degrees, one is an M.Sc in physics and the other is an MBA. I also have years of class room experience teaching a diverse student body. I got excellent teaching evaluations and have mentored new teaching assistants.

Teaching tests your knowledge and understanding about a subject like nothing else does. It makes you think clearly about the assumptions you make unconsciously and sometimes gives you a different perspective. I have mostly taught physics but also math and chemistry to students at the University of Maine.

I was a teaching assistant for the course with the largest enrollment in the department, the introductory calculus based course aimed at physics and engineering students. I taught labs and recitations and also prepared the solution keys to each week's problem set, which was used by all other instructors who taught the class.

I also taught problem solving sessions for algebra and trigonometry based physics course aimed at Life Sciences majors for a couple of semesters. For one summer I worked as the physics instructor for the Upward Bound Math Science Program. One of the students I mentored went on to win the prize for the best project that year, where she found the surface temperature of the sun.

I also taught one semester of College Algebra at the Math Department when I was a full time MBA student and I taught one semester of General Chemistry lab, in my last semester at the University of Maine. 

I have the experience to help you succeed and achieve your potential, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have a master's degree in physics and I have taught college algebra at the University of Maine. I also have years of classroom experience teaching students how to tackle Problems for college level physics courses.

ACT Science

I have both an undergraduate and graduate degree in physics and was a teaching assistant in physics for more than five years as a doctoral student at the University of Maine.

Algebra 1

I have taught college algebra for one semester at the University of Maine, while I was a full-time MBA student. Besides which I have taken many math and physics classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level as a student.

Algebra 2

I have taught college algebra for one semester at the University of Maine, while I was a full-time MBA student. Besides which I have taken many math and physics classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level as a student.

Calculus

I was a teaching assistant for many years for the calculus based introductory physics course. I have also taken many math and physics classes that have generally required an expertise in calculus to succeed.

Chemistry

I have taught general chemistry lab to freshman at the University of Maine. As an undergraduate in physics I had to take many chemistry classes as well. I am quite comfortable in teaching AP chemistry and chemistry at the college freshman level or physical chemistry at junior level, since that is the closest to physics.

Economics

I have taken several graduate level micro and macroeconomics classes in the recent past as a doctoral student in finance. I also have an MBA for which freshman level economics is a prerequisite. So I am pretty comfortable teaching this subject.

Finance

Most of MBA electives were in finance and as a doctoral student in finance I even read the original papers that form the basis of modern finance, including but not limited to modern portfolio theory. I am also familiar with Microsoft Excel's financial functions as well as the use of a business calculator which can be very useful in tackling finance problems.

Geometry

Geometry and algebra are the basis on which all other subjects rest, from calculus to physics. I have years of experience teaching physics and taking classes in physics and math, which would not have been possible without a thorough understanding of geometry.

GMAT

I have not taken the GMAT myself but taken GRE and the strategies to do well in both is not that dissimilar. I can be particularly helpful in tackling the data and math heavy sections.

GRE

I have taken the GRE myself and done very well, especially in the math section. I have several tricks to get through the math section quickly without making errors.

Physical Science

I have a bachelors and a master's degree in physics, this has given me a thorough background in physical science. I have had classroom teaching experience in both physics and chemistry, and I have worked with high school students as well.

Physics

I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in physics. Plus I have classroom experience of many years leading problem solving or recitation sections of both the calculus and algebra based introductory physics classes. I was also in charge of preparing the key to the homework assignments which used by all the instructors, some of whom were professors, of the course. I have mentored new teaching assistants, and I have also taught high school students in the Upward bound math science program.

Prealgebra

I have a master's degree in physics and I have taught college algebra at the University of Maine. I also have years of classroom experience teaching students how to tackle problems for college level physics courses.

Precalculus

I was a teaching assistant for many years for the calculus based introductory physics course. I have also taken many math and physics classes that have generally required an expertise in calculus to succeed. So if I can teach calculus, I can certainly teach pre calculus, which requires a thorough background in co-ordinate geometry and trigonometry.

SAT Math

I have taught college algebra for one semester at the University of Maine, while I was a full-time MBA student. Besides which I have taken many math and physics classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level as a student.


Statistics

While doing my MBA and later as a doctoral student in finance, I have had to deal with a lot of statistical analysis. In addition to my MBA class, I have also taken graduate level statistics.

TOEFL

Even the medium of instruction at my K-10 school was English, I had to take TOEFL when I applied for graduate study in the US. Needless to say I did very well. So I have actual test taking experience with TOEFL so I can help a student taking the exam better.

Trigonometry

I have had years of experience teaching physics, knowing your trigonometry is an essential skill to do well in physics. I am pretty good trig, even if I say so myself. I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve which make learning and remembering trig formulas easier. Once you understand trig, conquering calculus becomes that much easier.
