With a PhD in Physics
, and advanced graduate work in chemistry
, I have taught both subjects at the university level, and have conducted research in both subjects. Recently, I have been an adjunct faculty member at San Antonio College in both the Physics and Chemistry departments.
Although qualified to teach math
at the college level, I have chosen instead to teach math at the high school level. Now I am tutoring physics, chemistry, and various math courses (including SAT
, and GRE
prep) through WyzAnt.
I thoroughly enjoy working with either secondary school students and college students here in San Antonio. However, due to the chemotherapy program I'm currently on, I now primarily tutor students in my own home.
Given my doctorate in physics, and having conducted research science
that required serious expertise in physics, chemistry, and higher mathematics
, my hope is to instill a love of math and science in students. These can be deeply interesting, even exciting subjects!! The key is to develop a solid foundation in the basics, and then to guide your child to see for themselves how good they will feel about themselves when they truly understand the math (or science). From the feedback I receive, available to be seen here, my goal of getting students enthused about the subjects they study has been working well.
When common sense is combined with stimulating your child's imagination, learning HOW to tackle problem-solving situations becomes a positive, rewarding experience. This is as true for my middle school students as it is for those of my students taking advanced courses in college.
