About Judy

Even at an early age, I had developed a propensity to teach. At the age of five, I began teaching my then 2 year old brother how to add numbers when he only just learned how to count. Since then, I have been actively teaching my younger siblings throughout their education concepts in math and science, teaching tricks in arithmetic to algebra, even to the calculus level. I have taught my sisters concepts in physics from building transistor radios to understanding electricity from batteries. I realized then how excited I was to teach things I was passionate about, and math and science are two subjects I find really fascinating.

I have extensive work history in physics. Previous work experience includes working at NASA Ames, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of Chicago, Reed College Nuclear Research Reactor, and Stanford University. I was awarded an honorable mention for an NSF Fellowship Award and have even been accepted and studied at Stanford University in the past.

I have a lot of tutoring experience in math and physics. In college I was a calculus and a physics tutor. I was also a physics outreach volunteer where I went to a nearby elementary school to work with other students to conduct physics experiments for the kids. I love teaching, and I especially love that moment when students begin to enjoy learning too. I find that often times, math and physics can be difficult to grasp, but I always challenge myself to look for fun and innovative ways to teach.

I love teaching and I love science. Math and physics are hard subjects. My goals in tutoring are to help the student develop physical intuition of the concepts, and help them build strong problem-solving skills to feel confident in the material.

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.

Physics

Having a bachelor's degree in physics, I graduated with all As and A-'s in physics undergraduate courses. Courses include first year physics, second year physics, quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, optics, thermodynamics, solid state physics, and classical mechanics. I have tutored physics to college and high school level students.
