I'm a well educated and patient tutor for help with science, math, and English. I have worked as a post-doctoral fellow in neuroscience at Princeton, have a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard, and graduated with a B. Sc. from Columbia. I was a mathematics olympiad regional winner in high school. My background allows me to teach a broad range of subjects.
I'm really interested in my students succeeding. I make sure they have all they need to succeed at their goal.
My main main areas of interest are:
Elementary School and Young Students: Math and Science. I teach science in general and computers and computer science. I teach math to all levels of students whether gifted, or normal or having been diagnosed with a disability.
Mathematics: Through tutoring I have a good sense for what students should know and how to diagnose areas of weakness and strength. I've been able to keep young students engaged. My specialties are calculus, precalculus, geometry and algebra. I've taught calculus to students with no other instructor.
Science: I've introduced physics and chemistry to young students through both lectures and laboratory exercises. I've taught many concepts advanced concepts in a hands on and intuitive way so that students learn concepts profoundly.
Computer Science: I've taught young students programming from the ground up. I have a course of instruction designed for C++, but I also teach Java, and other languages such as MATLAB, Mathematica, and LABview.
High school: Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Computer Programming and related laboratory courses.
Mathematics: algebra 1 and algebra 2, Geometry, trigonometry, precalculus and calculus. I've helped students do well on finals and for regents under some difficult circumstances.
Physics: I've taught all levels from AP levels to introductory levels. I've helped prepare students for the physics SAT and they have done very well. I've taught students with no other instructor; I've helped students prepare for physics competitions.
Chemistry: I teach chemistry focusing on fundamental concepts that draws from both my understanding of physics and atomic physics and also putting order to all the many phenomenon that chemistry can explain.
Computer Science: I've introduced programming languages and concepts to students of all abilities and age groups
College and University:
Physics: Mechanics and Classical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Physics for medical students or poets, or other physics classes and Laboratory classes;
Mathematics: Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations;
Computer Science; Programming: Java, C++, MATLAB, Mathematica, and LaBview.
Statistics: I've taught business statistics, probability, probability distributions, biostatistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and ANOVA analsysis.
Mechanical Design: I am proficient at SolidWorks. I can introduce you to how to use the software to draw parts, assemblies in 3D or to make 2D drawings.
Please feel free to ask me if you need assistance with other related subjects.
I am also skilled at coaching for test preparation such as SAT, ACT, GRE, large parts of the MCAT, and other exams. I would focus on both learning the material and the best strategies for achieving success, given your particular situation.
I'll make good use of your time with me. These subjects can be very interesting and worthwhile studying, but often there may be a concept of two that is difficult. My goal is to get you on track, identify those stumbling blocks, and work through them. My goal is to get you comfortable and competent in the material so that the entire learning experience is rewarding in many ways. Longer term, that approach can open up many opportunities in the future, that may be hard to anticipate now.
I love teaching high school and younger students as well as college or others. For me, a big part of the reward in tutoring is making these subjects understandable and hopefully enjoyable.
