About Tiffany


Bio

I am an Astrophysicist and former Astronomer at NASA MSFC. I have a Bachelor's degree in Astronomy from the University of Toledo, a Master's degree in Physics and a PhD in Astrophysics both from Georgia State University. I have experience helping students with their math coursework ranging from Pre-Algebra up to Precalculus. I am most comfortable helping with all levels of Astronomy and with Physics ranging from high school Physics and Introductory Classical Physics to Modern Physics.

I am an Astrophysicist and former Astronomer at NASA MSFC. I have a Bachelor's degree in Astronomy from the University of Toledo, a Master's degree in Physics and a PhD in Astrophysics both from Georgia State University. I have experience helping students with their math coursework ranging from Pre-Algebra up to Precalculus. I am most comfortable helping with all levels of Astronomy and with Physics ranging from high school Physics and Introductory Classical Physics to Modern Physics.

I worked in a Planetarium for four years where I taught groups ranging from Pre-school children to adults, so I am comfortable working with students of any age. I have experience teaching intro level astronomy courses, which include basic physics and math, for college students both traditional and non-traditional.

My approach to teaching is to help the students understand the reasoning behind what they are studying, rather than just memorizing facts and equations. In the lessons I have taught I prefer to use more images and examples, rather than lists of facts and equations without much explanation. I have experience tutoring astronomy students with their homework as well as helping them to study for exams.

I'm interested in online tutoring as I am now staying home with my young children and am very interested in helping students with their education through these difficult times. I really love to teach and talk with people about astronomy and physics and would love the opportunity to help students using the knowledge and skills that I have acquired over the years.

Very Knowledgeable, Caring, Patient

Tiffany was an Incredible Tutor! She made me feel very comfortable. My Pre Calculus math problems seems easier because of how Tiffany taught. She has a passion in wanting to make sure I understood my assignment. I will Absolutely use her again to help me with my math assignments .
