While getting my master's degree from the University of Pittsburgh, I tutored undergraduates in Physics for two years, giving me some experience and my own philosophy of teaching.
I can tutor students in Physics(all branches), Algebra, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I can also help with Philosophy (help understanding it or help writing papers). I even helped one student pass his Logic class!
My top priority is to give students a conceptual understanding of the material (as opposed to rote memorization). I do this by asking the student questions to gauge their understanding, then giving advice or practice problems to personally address the material they don't understand. I also like to encourage them by pointing out the things they do understand. I believe in being personally friendly but intellectually demanding.
