Hello! As a physics tutor I help you think like a physicist. As you may have experienced, physics describes the world in very precise terms, has a vocabulary all its own and produces results often quite contrary to our everyday perceptions and expectations. I can help students to master the many facets of physics and instill a sense of excitement about this subject. Let's go beyond "I can't solve that problem"! I hope to transfer my enthusiasm for physics to you! And solve the problem at the same time with confidence and insight!
Tutoring high school & college physics is my principle expertise. This includes the classical topics of physics: scientific method, classical mechanics, fluid statics & dynamics, thermodynamics, gravitation, electricity, wave theory, optics and introductory quantum mechanics.
Physics is not possible without mathematics and my expertise includes these essential mathematics topics: high school math, 1st & 2nd year college math including algebra, trigonometry, geometry, introductory calculus, introductory statistics.
I look forward to meeting you and tutoring physics and math with you. For the past four years I have taught college physics at DeVry University. I regularly contribute to 'WyzAnt Answers,' and have a WyzAnt Blog with some provocative physics questions for discussion! I get great satisfaction in helping students improve their understanding of science and math. The payoff for student and tutor alike is improved class performance. Your learning is important to me!
Prior to teaching I made a successful career for over 25 years in electronic sensor design and development. My work contributed to building significant and profitable automotive sensor businesses and patenting sensor and fail-safe automotive systems found in cars today. My scientific publications include topics in inertial guidance accelerometers, character recognition, and signal analysis. I hold BS and MS degrees in physics from the University of Virginia and University of Oregon as well as an MBA from the University of Michigan.
I attempt to accommodate students' schedules and meeting locations on a case-by-case basis. Contact me via WyzAnt email.
Online tutoring can be accommodated. This is an easy and convenient way to augment your problem solving and learning.
