Hello my name is Reid. I am a recent graduate from Bloomsburg University with a major in physics and a minor in chemistry. While I was there I worked as a tutor for the university for two years dealing mostly with introductory and general level physics, chemistry, and calculus. Before I went to college I worked as a taekwondo instructor for four years with students ranging from 4 - 14. I am also an eagle scout and served several years in my troop as I guide for younger scouts.
I understand the subjects I tutor are not the most interesting to many people and that it is easy to get deterred from the subject matter. I have found that patience and completeness are the most important tools for tackling this material. My first goal is always to identify a student's trouble with the material and then to address the trouble with a combination illustrating the underlying concept and working through real world problems.
My ultimate goal is help an individual become comfortable with a subject which I love and be able to use the tools I've shown them to conquer whatever troubles they may have in the future. I know the satisfaction I feel when I help someone fully grasp a subject and I look forward to helping anyone I can.
