I greatly enjoy tutoring in math and physical sciences. Having taught physics both on the college level and occasionally to groups of homeschoolers, as well as tutoring various students, I've learned a great deal about helping students be successful.
While I spent some time as an education major, I ended up with a Ph.D. in Physics. Currently I work as a physicist / mathematician.
My qualifications for teaching differential equations start with my having received a 3.5/4.0 when I took this course in college. I then proceeded to learn more about differential equations in a number of mathematically intensive courses needed to complete my Ph.D. in physics. For 15 of the last 18 years I have held a mathematical physics research and development position at IBM where differential equations are used in what I do. Finally, I have spent two years teaching physics and have had numerous smaller teaching and tutoring experiences spread over the last 20 years.
My qualifications for teaching linear algebra start with my having received a perfect score when I took this course in college. I then proceeded to learn more about linear algebra in a number of mathematically intensive courses needed to complete my Ph.D. in physics. For 15 of the last 18 years I have held a mathematical physics research and development position at IBM where linear algebra is a mainstay of what I do. Finally, I have spent two years teaching physics and have had numerous smaller teaching and tutoring experiences spread over the last 20 years.
