Hello, students!

I am a current Ph.D candidate, pursuing my degree in Physics at Michigan State University.

I received my Bachelor's from Trinity College in Physics, Classics, and Mathematics, all with honors. I was near the top of my class and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I was an active member of multiple tutoring services on campus during all four of my years there, and recently traveled to Thailand to teach English before I enter into graduate school. I have always loved learning a plethora of subjects, academic and otherwise, and bring my full weight to bear in everything I pursue.

On the tutoring end of things, I have loved tutoring and teaching others since I began in high school. While at Trinity, I tutored privately, in groups, and TA'd for labs. I volunteered at the local middle school and helped found a Science and Mathematics suite devoted to tutoring the campus. Fostering knowledge in others has been a passion of mine for many years.

My approach has never been to give students answers, or to supply simple one-time techniques. I always aim to foster confidence and build understanding from the ground level up. I instill a mode of thought that facilitates problem solving and knowledge assimilation. If my initial explanations are inadequate, I will happily switch gears until my approach suits you, the learner.

I also offer free email support between tutoring sessions. Whether you need more material or have a question, you are welcome to email me.

Thank you for considering my services and enjoy!

John B.

John's subjects

####
Algebra 1

I hold degrees with honors in Physics and Mathematics from Trinity College. I have taken an extensive college course load in these two subjects, many using techniques ranging from basic algebra up through advanced calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. I have more than five years of tutoring and teaching experience, largely in the fields of Mathematics and Physics. I am willing and able to tutor any student in Algebra 1!

####
Algebra 2

I hold degrees with honors in Physics and Mathematics from Trinity College. I have taken an extensive college course load in these two subjects, many using techniques ranging from basic algebra up through advanced calculus and linear algebra. I have over five years of tutoring and teaching experience, largely in the fields of Mathematics and Physics, with students ranging from middle school to college in age. I am willing and able to tutor any student in Algebra 2!

####
Calculus

I earned degrees with honors in Mathematics and Physics from Trinity College, where I took Calculus intensive classes in both majors, from basic Calculus I straight through to application in Electrodynamics and Quantum Mechanics. I have taught and tutored extensively for more than five years. Very often, this tutoring involved helping students understand Calculus both in its pure form and through application in Physics. I am ready and willing to tutor any calculus student!

####
Grammar

I hold a degree with honors in Classics from Trinity College. During this time, I intensively learned Latin and Ancient Greek and took several classes in both Norwegian and German. I have sense dabbled in Thai and Russian. Though I am by no means a grammarian in any official capacity, language and grammar have been a passion of mine for many years. I am willing and able to help any student with grammar!

####
Physics

I earned degrees with honors in Mathematics and Physics from Trinity College, where I was an active member of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and was inducted into Sigma Pi Sigma, the Physics national honors society. I have tutored Physics for over five years and conducted Physics demonstrations for local middle school students. I have performed first-hand research and have a peer-reviewed publication. I am willing and able to tutor any student in Physics!

####
Precalculus

I hold degrees with honors in Mathematics and Physics from Trinity College. I have taken an extensive course load in these two subjects, many of them intensively using Calculus and all requisite material. I have also used this level of Mathematics while performing research in Physics. Beyond this, I have also tutored and taught for over five years, largely focusing in Physics and Mathematics courses which use this material. I am willing and able to tutor any student in Precalculus!

####
Differential Equations

I graduated with honors in Physics, Classics, and Mathematics from Trinity College. During this time I took Differential Equations and received the letter grade of "A+." I have five years of tutoring and teaching experience, especially in Physics and Mathematics.

####
Linear Algebra

I graduated with honors in Physics and Mathematics from Trinity College. During this time I took Linear Algebra and received the letter grade of "A." I also took many upper-level, proof-based mathematics courses to supplement my understanding. Finally, I have five years of tutoring and teaching experience, especially in Physics and Mathematics.
