I have the following credentials and degrees:
B.A. Physics, Florida State University
M.A. Education, George Washington University
M.S. Information Technology, University of Maryland
Ph.D. Education, Catholic University
Certified Data Processor, Institute for Certification of Computer Professionals
I have had experience teaching physics (high school and college level), and college courses in astronomy, algebra, calculus, computer programming, and computer science (GUI design, security, artificial intelligence, and software engineering).
I specialize in teaching problem-solving skills in math and science. This includes problems in mathematics (especially algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus), statistics (hypothesis testing, probability), astronomy and physics. Many students have difficulty setting up problems, especially when a formula has two or more unknowns, some of which must be provided by other formulas. This type of logic chain challenges many students. Methods sorting out the known quantities from the unknown are a skill that can be taught. I enjoy helping students learn how to use such methods.
My schedule is flexible, but I am not available on Friday or Saturday.
