My name is Sherman. I have a PhD in Physics from Princeton. I have taught in the Dept of Physics and Astronomy at University of Maryland, College Park, and at Fairfield University.

I now have success tutoring at the high school and college level. Students I tutor do B+ work or better. I teach all-levels math, statistics, physics, and general science.

My tutor process is as follows: We review together past homework and quizzes as they occur. We then do any remedial work indicated. Next the student does their homework with me at their side as a guide.

I teach exam taking strategies for each subject, as well.

As a result, I find many students profit by a new confidence in their abilities.

Study Skills

“I am looking for organization help and life coaching.”
Quote from student request. Jon 6/7/2014

My name is Sherman. I have a PhD in Physics from Princeton. I have taught many years in the Dept. of Physics and Astronomy at University of Maryland, College Park, and at Fairfield University.

With respect to study skills, I now have success tutoring at the high school and college level. I teach all-levels math, statistics, physics, and general science. I teach study skills and exam taking strategies for each subject as an integral part of tutoring. Students I tutor do B+ work or better.

With respect to organization help and life coaching, I help clarify a person's thoughts and options so they can act. I work with them to analyze their thinking and options and develop alternate courses of action. I provide support to enhance the capabilities that they already have. I have many years experience in college teaching, in project management in private industry, and counseling on office politics problems. The process includes written lists and flowcharts.
