I am a graduate of Rutgers who majored in Physics and Mathematics. I have over 3 years of tutoring experience. I have also been a teacher at the Center For Talented Youth, through John Hopkins University, teaching rising 8th graders and high school students mathematical modeling.
I have tutored at the college-level at the Rutgers Learning Resource Center and have privately tutored students from elementary school to high school. At the Rutgers Learning Resource Center I tutored small groups in problem solving, theoretical content and scientific methods for undergraduate science classes. I have tutored from Algebra to Calc-III at Rutgers in addition to chemistry at times.
I have also had a great deal of scientific experience and have worked around the world on different physics projects. I have been to Germany, Poland, Canada and still do research locally at Rutgers. I have actively been involved with RUPA-The Rutgers University Programming Association throughout my college career and have served as VP of Finance on RUPA. (RUPA puts on events like RutgersFest as well as other events for the Rutgers community through the year).
As I am a tutor and a researcher, I try to implement elements of my research while tutoring. I feel students should try to approach new concepts by drawing on what they already know and thus extend their understanding. In the sciences, simply memorizing is not enough to learn how to apply a concept to a new problem. In mathematics, I feel the proper motivation and background is required when mathematics is being learned; otherwise it is quite frustrating to learn what can be a very abstract subject. I also feel that a tutor isn't simply there to teach information to a student but rather to draw on a students strengths and help them develop study skills and approaches to learn any new material they may encounter in their lives.
The AP classes I took in high school were the following:
•Physics C (Electricity and Magnetism)
•English Literature and Composition,
Some math classes I have taken include the following:
•Calculus 1 and 2
•Ordinary Differential Equations
•Partial Differential Equations
•Real Analysis (2 semesters) (Advanced Calc I and II)
•Linear Algebra (2 semesters)
•Introduction to Probability
•Stochastic and Probabilistic Models
•Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning
•Theory of Numbers
•Advanced Calculus for Engineering
•Case studies in Operations Research
•Introduction to Mathematical Finance
Some of the physics classes I've taken include the following:
•Physics I, II
