Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have a doctoral degree in physics, which requires extensive use of the skills and methods learned in Algebra 2, and I have about 1 year's experience doing 1-on-1 tutoring in Algebra 2. I have worked with both high school students and college students studying at this level. My students have said that working with me has increased their self-confidence as learners.

I received a doctorate in Physics in 2015, which required me to apply methods from Calculus 1-4 at length. So far, I have worked with one student in Calculus 2, and I would be happy to tutor students in Calc 1-4. Before coming to me, my Calc 2 student had recently failed the class and was in a position that required him to retake and pass it in a five-week summer session: a difficult task. We were successful in getting the desired result.

I have a Ph.D. in Physics from Penn State University that I received in May 2015. While studying for my degree, I worked as a teaching assistant for Penn State---instructing physics students at both the 1-on-1 and the group level. Penn State gave me an award for my performance in this role. Since my degree, I have tutored physics on the high school, college and graduate levels.

Throughout my time studying for my undergraduate and graduate degrees in physics, I regularly applied methods from precalculus to solve physics problems. As a graduate teaching assistant, I taught undergraduates to use these methods to solve physics problems as well. I have been tutoring pre-calculus for about 2 months.

I received an 800 (perfect score) on the math section of the SAT when I took the exam and a perfect score on the math section of the GRE (taken before graduate school) as well. During my time as a teaching assistant at Penn State, I regularly used and taught skills that the SAT math section is designed to test. I have about a year's experience tutoring high school math and have spent about six months tutoring the SAT Math itself.

Trigonometry is a skill set that is central to the discipline of physics, which is my area of expertise. While studying for my bachelor's and then my doctorate degree in physics, I regularly used and applied the central definitions, functions and identities of trigonometry. I am familiar with the proofs of the identities as well. When I tutor students in physics, trig definitions and identities are common points of discussion.
