I know Calculus can be a scary subject but it can be a fun one because it has many real life applications. Give me a chance to help you appreciate Calculus so that you will enjoy it and have fun with it. In fact, I heard that those who were nervous about Calculus came to love it as they progressed into it.
When I took a math class on Differential Equation (DiffEq), I thought it was easier to understand than Calculus. In this DiffEq class, I learned about how to solve first-order differential equations that describe systems such as population growth and the harmonic oscillator. These differential equations even involve imaginary numbers and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. I came to appreciate those after I took this class and I enjoyed it! I hope to make your DiffEq class a similar experience.
Physics is my specialty because I have a Bachelor and Master degree in Physics. While studying, I worked as a Teaching Assistant where I taught introductory physics laboratory courses. The lab courses I taught were Newtonian Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism (my favorite!), Geometric Optics, and General Physics. Teaching these courses for a total of seven years during my undergraduate and graduate career combined gives me the confidence needed to tutor someone like you in Physics!
