Are you or your child struggling in math or physics? Do you just want to nudge that B up to an A? Maybe you need a tutor! I can help you or your child with any mathematics or physics course, from first grade through college.

I have Bachelor's degrees from UW-Madison in Math, Physics, and Astronomy, and am currently finishing up a Master's degree in West Chester University's Geology department. What qualifies me to tutor is not just that I know the material, but that I love to teach and am good at it. In my last years of undergraduate study, I spent several hours a week tutoring non-majors in introductory physics, many of whom were struggling with the subject. Since then, I have helped students of all ages and backgrounds to conquer subjects they'd though were impossible. Not only did all of my students improve their scores tremendously, but several of them grew to love the subject because I love to make science interesting and exciting. I am very patient with frustrated students, and am good at making boring subjects palatable.

If you're having trouble with any mathematics (especially algebra, geometry, trigonometry, or calculus) or physics course from elementary through college, I'll help you do better than you ever imagined. I can also help students prepare for the SAT (math or critical reading), or GRE general test.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

My undergraduate degree is in mathematics with an emphasis on analysis. I've tutored students in both college-level and high school calculus. I've also taught calculus to people with little math background in a classroom setting.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is one of my specialties. Calculus requires an immediate grasp of trigonometry, so I have developed a knack of teaching the main concepts quickly and clearly in my calculus sessions. I also have a background in astronomy, which requires A LOT of trigonometry to deal with orbital mechanics.
