My name is Eric. I have a Bachelors degree in Physics with a minors in Mathematics and Writing. I spent three years as a graduate student in Physics at Vanderbilt University. I then taught high school Math and Physics for six years at Walden School in Louisville KY. As a teacher, I found that each student learned the material in their own way; there are as many different learning styles as there are students. This means, of course, that an effective teacher must be flexible in their methods....
My name is Eric. I have a Bachelors degree in Physics with a minors in Mathematics and Writing. I spent three years as a graduate student in Physics at Vanderbilt University. I then taught high school Math and Physics for six years at Walden School in Louisville KY. As a teacher, I found that each student learned the material in their own way; there are as many different learning styles as there are students. This means, of course, that an effective teacher must be flexible in their methods. In my opinion, the ability, and willingness, to meet the student on their level, and a thorough understanding of the subject, are what make for a good teacher. I taught both AP Physics and AP Calculus for many years and all of my students passed with a 3 or higher; some years every student received a 5. I have a passion for math and physics and I am excited to share what I know. I can tutor any undergraduate physics course and any related math course (calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and numerical analysis for example), as well as formal or symbolic logic.
I have many years of experience as a Math teacher, but I have also put my knowledge to practical application as a Physicist. If the question "When will I ever use this?" ever comes up, I will generally be able to point out many real world applications of the lesson.
I spent seven years in university studying Physics and another six teaching it in high school. I have a deep understanding of material students will be learning and a desire to share that knowledge.
I have been tutoring, on and off, since my undergraduate days, over 20 years ago. I like the 1-on-1 format because it allows me to really tune in to the way my student is responding to the lesson. I will work with students, parents, and other educators to structure lessons that meet the different needs of different students. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson.
