About Steffanie

I've tutored students from nearly all ages, from 5th and 6th grade, junior high, high school, and college in mathematics such as algebra, geometry, precalculus, trigonometry, calculus, and general physics such as classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism.

I received my B.S. in physics from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2007 and have been tutoring off and on since then. I worked at Apple Inc. for about five years in their Environmental team working to eliminate the use of toxic substances, so I have lab experience with instrumentation involving physics and analytical chemistry.

I enjoy working with students in science and mathematics to help improve their understanding of these subjects and develop general problem solving skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

I received a B+ in lower division differential equations course which covered first and second order differential equations, separation of variables, linear differential equations, systems of first order equations, nonlinear differential equations and stability (Math 4B at UCSB).

I also received an A in partial differential equations which included fourier series, integrals and transforms, and infinite series (Math 6B at UCSB).

Linear Algebra

I took lower division linear algebra at UCSB and used many of the topics in linear algebra extensively in a courses in mathematical methods of theoretical physics as well as in three quarters of quantum mechanics.

More recently, I took a graduate level linear algebra course at Santa Clara University (AMTH 245).
