About A. T.


Bio

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....

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.

Knowledgeable, patient, excellent at explaining

He has been a huge help in filling in the gaps of teaching which my college professor leaves out. I have a much better understanding of how to approach and solve physics problems.

Mary, 9 lessons with A. T.

Great Teacher

Very good tutor. Very responsive and informative. He helped my daughter have more confidence in where she is in Pre Calculus.

Jerome, 1 lesson with A. T.

Patient and kind tutor

Mr. B. is a great tutor. I was having trouble with my college physics I class, keeping up with the pace and understanding the material. Mr. B. gave me several ways on how to maintain understanding and solve new problems. He listened to all my questions and then calmly and clearly explained the topics to me. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Excellent Tutor!

Mr. B. is an extremely helpful and flexible tutor who truly cares about your success and has the skills necessary to teach anyone! He was always able to break down even the most complicated problems in both of my college math classes and helped me to understand them. Thanks, Mr. B.!

John , 44 lessons with A. T.

Very Patient

A.T. was very patient with my 17 year old son with ADHD. He helped him to prepare for an upcoming math test and gave him positive feedback which helped to lower his anxiety and give him self-confidence.
