In order to help you make the important decision concerning a tutor, let me give you
a brief introduction:
I have taught physics
(from the college/honors levels to the AP levels (Mechanics/Electricity & Magnetism Level "C
" with calculus
and Level "B" without calculus) and mathematics
; calculus: differential/integral
and multivariable). I have had forty-two years of teaching experience. I retired last June from a High School, and currently am tutoring students from China who wish to attend college/university here in the United States. I also am tutoring several students in AP Physics
, as well as students taking Honors Physics. During my forty-two year academic career, students of my Honors 1 Physics classes have averaged 732 on the SATII Physics examination. I have, during my career, been actively involved with the United States Physics Team, which competes internationally representing our country. Some of my students having been on that team. Many more have reached the semi-final stage of that competition.
I have, over the years, also tutored many college students in various physics courses in which they were enrolled. These have included college students from Boston University, Northeastern University, and M.I.T. in the very traditional first four courses which include such topics as mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermodynamics
, wave motion and modern physics.
Because my undergraduate degree is in physics and mathematics and my graduate degree is in physics with extensive course work in education, I am passionate about these subjects and trying to help students improve his/her achievement in these areas. I am also able to tutor various examination preparations, including the SATII Physics, SAT
I and II Mathematics, the AP Physics "B" Examintion, the AP Physics "C" Examination (Mechanics and/or Electricity/Magnetism), the AP Calculus
Levels "AB" and "BC", the MCAT
(physics sections only) and the GRE
I enjoy the challenges which tutoring brings, and feel confident that I am able to adjust my methods and techniques so that virtually all students will benefit from a tutoring experience with me. If you feel that I can be of assistance to you in improving your achievement or preparing to ace a standardized test in physics or mathematics, please do not hesitate to inquire.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
