I have been a classroom teacher of science for eight years, mostly conceptual physics. My math background and lifelong pursuit of astronomy enable me to tutor in astronomy and algebra with a high degree of expertise.

I generally start tutoring by answering specific questions from the student. This takes care of the student's urgent needs. Then, as I get to know the student and identify areas of weakness, I work intensively to develop the student's ability to independently master those areas.

The student is always encouraged to interupt me any time they don't understand. I am very good at finding alternative ways to explain things. My ability to reach students at all levels is outstanding.

In addition to my classroom experience, I have engaged in other jobs and activities that involved teaching. These include many astronomy outreach events as well as years as a personal trainer and golf instructor.

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.

Golf

In high school and college I played on the varsity teams and won some tournaments. Over the years I have taught many people successfully to play golf and enjoy the game. More formally, in graduate school at Texas A&M a few years ago, I taught beginning golf to college students. I am competent enough to teach the basics to beginners as well as help more experienced players fine tune their game.
