About A. T.

Both my bachelor's and master's degrees in physics included many math courses. I started majoring in chemistry before switching to physics at Hendrix.

Except for 6 years helping the Corps of Engineers with their first microcomputers, I've been a classroom teacher/tutor since I finished college. Even at the Corps, I was teaching employees how to best utilize their new computers.

I love teaching! The Socratic method is my favorite. That means I ask a lot of questions. This helps make sure the student is "getting it", and improves his/her retention of knowledge

"Perfect practice makes perfect." Once I make sure students have worked a problem correctly once, I give them lots of practice to seal the knowledge In their heads.

I've taught physics and physical science many times at levels junior high through college. I'm also qualified to teach lower-level chemistry courses with the exception of organic. All these courses include a lot if algebra.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

My bachelor's degree from Hendrix was in physics, but included 24 semester hours of mathematics. My Master's degree from Purdue was also in physics. I have been a teacher all my adult life. I have often taught, tutored, or reviewed math as part of my work.

Algebra 2

I've worked at both Sylvan Learning Center and TRIO at Pulaski Tech, tutoring students in algebra, physical science, chemistry, physics, geometry, calculus, etc.

Chemistry

I majored in physics at both the Bachelor's and Master's degree levels. Chemistry was my major for my first two years at Hendrix. Then I realized that my expertise is in problem solving, so I switched to physics. Since then, I have taught chemistry several times at both the high school and college levels.

General Computer

I majored in physics in both my bachelor's and master's degrees. I taught computer science at UALR, and at UCA. I bought my first Apple II computer in 1979. During all of my succeeding teaching years, I have used computers for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations.

Physical Science

For the past 10 years, I have taught physical science at Pulaski Technical College. I've also taught it several times at the high school level.

Physics

I hold both bachelor's and master's degrees in physics. I've been a teacher all my adult life. I've taught and tutored physics and other courses from the junior high through the college level.
