As a science major, I will be dedicated to make the subject as clear as possible. I also believe that science and math is not only interesting but also fun and will try to convey that to the student. My experience includes teaching physics and chemistry at the secondary level. As these subjects especially physics require extensive math, I feel I could teach math through basic calculus. I also worked for many years for the Federal government (the U.S. International Trade Commission) where an important part of my job was to explain difficult scientific subjects in a manner that was understandable to the layman. That, of course, will be an essential requirement for my tutoring philosophy for your student. I also want to explain to the extent possible, the importance of the subject not only to an understanding of the universe but also to the needs of society. I prefer to have students come to my home in Springfield, VA (my wife will be at home with me) but if that is not possible, let's talk.
