Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a PhD in physics. I have taken many advanced math classes. I scored well on both ACT and SAT exams, as well as the GRE exam. I have tutored over 300 hours algebra specific related topics and I have over 1000 total tutoring hours.

Algebra 2

I have tutored more than ten students in algebra II concepts. My students enjoy the way I break ideas down into simple concepts and then reinforce them with examples. All my students continued after the first lesson, through the end of the school year and showed significant improvement.

Calculus

I have tutored more than ten students in calculus concepts who saw significant improvement in their understanding. I enjoy tutoring calculus because I believe that some mathematician long ago decided to make calculus seem difficult by employing a lot of Greek symbols and squiggles. When I show my students that these symbols, in fact, stand for understandable concepts, they quickly grasp the ideas and do well in their course. You have failed, ancient mathematician; calculus can in fact be understood in simple terms!

GRE

I have spent hours and hours preparing for and taking the GRE exam. In addition to teaching content, I can provide helpful tips on how to approach the exam, study habits, etc.

Physical Science

I have a PhD in physics, and I have taken many advanced math classes. I have also completed two semesters of courses on chemistry and geology. I love teaching students about how the physical world behaves. My background allows me to delve into all physical science topics in more depth than is typically taught. I have tutored over 300 hours on physical science related topics and I have over 1000 total tutoring hours.

Physics

I have a PhD in physics, so I am well versed in this topic. I also have taught 8 semesters of physics laboratory courses at UNC-Chapel Hill. It saddens me that so many people have a fear of physics, mostly because of poor instruction; I try to make physics topics as accessible as possible by discussing real-life applications, and tuning lessons to the individual student's skill level. I have specifically tutored over 300 hours in physics and I have over 1000 total tutoring hours.

Precalculus

I have extensive experience teaching precalculus as part of the Kent State Academic Success Center. Having a good understanding of precalculus is essential for all higher level maths. I make sure my students understand both the how and why of precalculus because both are essential in this bride-type math course. I think precalculus can be a very fun course as well, because you finally get to see the power of mathematics in more advanced applications.

I am a College Reading and Learning Association Certified tutor. I have a PhD in physics and over 1000 hours of private tutoring experience, including working three years at the Kent State University Tutoring Center.

SAT Math

Doing well on the SAT, and any other national test, in part depends on knowing the tricks of the test. My test prep courses include not only the math skills to do the problems, but also test taking skills in how to approach problems, how to look for traps, how and when to answer questions if you don’t know the answer, and how to pace yourself. Only when you have all these skills, are you truly ready to succeed on a national exam.

Trigonometry

I enjoy tutoring trigonometry. I use it regularly in my research, and have tutored it extensively. I have a PhD in physics, and I have over 1000 total tutoring hours.

Great physics tutor. — My son likes Nathan and his physics lessons very much. I am very impressed with his teaching as well. His instruction is precise and well planned and every word of it is critical to the subject and aims at my son's weakness. Most importantly, Nathan knows how to teach and communicate complex physics concepts to my son who is struggling with honor high school physics with simple visual graphs. ...
