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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I can tutor earth science with its four basic areas: atmosphere, ocean, geology, astronomy.

MCAT

I have a PhD from Princeton University. I taught Physics and Astronomy at the University of Maryland. I taught also at Fairfield University. Recently I have been tutoring math and physics at the high school and college level.

I have successfully tutored students at the college level probability and statistics.

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.
