About Shawna


Bio

Hello,

My name is Shawna, and I like to teach. I like to try to relate the science and math concepts to everyday problems and everyday things, so you can see how they are used in everyday life.

When tutoring, I follow the notes and homework/test problems given by the student's teacher, so the student can learn and understand what their teacher is covering. I find that mirroring the teacher allows the students to improve their in-class understanding to learn on their own as they...

Hello,

My name is Shawna, and I like to teach. I like to try to relate the science and math concepts to everyday problems and everyday things, so you can see how they are used in everyday life.

When tutoring, I follow the notes and homework/test problems given by the student's teacher, so the student can learn and understand what their teacher is covering. I find that mirroring the teacher allows the students to improve their in-class understanding to learn on their own as they progress, as well as improve their grades.

I have a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in mathematics and physics, and I've conducted postdoctoral research, as well. I have taught undergraduate physics and tutor high school and college. I enjoy seeing students grasp and understand the concepts and think of things in a new way.

I currently work as a Director in the IT industry and have worked at NASA.

I hope to be able to help your student learn and learn how to learn. :)

Differential Equations

I have taken differential equations and partial differential equations courses and received A's at Oregon State University while studying for my B.S. degree in physics and mathematics. I then went onto complete my Ph.D. in theoretical physics and completed more advanced math courses. I have tutored all levels of undergraduate mathematics and physics as a teaching assistant for 6 years.

Extremely knowledgeable tutor

Shawna answered my daughters questions and explained areas in which she didn't understand. She was professional and patient. I would recommend Shawna for you son/daughter.

Excellent Tutor

We studied many concepts and formulas together. Shawna was able to articulate concepts in a different way when certain ideas were particularly trying. All-in-all, 10 for 10.
