I am a graduate student at the Catholic University of America, who will be entering her second year of study in Fall '10. I did my undergraduate degree in physics at Cornell University, and I took a number of chemistry, biology, and math courses throughout high school and my college career.
I have had extensive experience tutoring physics (mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves and thermal physics) and biology at the college level - I worked at a physics tutoring center for three years, and as a biology tutor for one year while in college. Additionally, during my first year of graduate school I had the opportunity to tutor a group of undergraduates in calculus and first-year physics. I am very comfortable tutoring mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and waves/thermodynamics, as well as calculus I and II, general chemistry, and general biology.
My style is quite flexible, and can be adapted to suit the student; a lot of my past students have preferred to come to me with questions, which is fine, although I do ask all my students to attempt assignment questions themselves before they bring them to me. I have also had students in the past who were struggling with their professor's style of teaching and wished to have someone provide them with an alternative explanations of broad concepts, which I am also happy to do. I do ask that each student let me know before our sessions begin the title of the text out of which they are working; and, prior to each session, the topic that they wish to cover in the upcoming session.
