About Roy

I am a current physics PhD student with a bachelor's in physics that is ready to help you or your child succeed in physics, math, and chemistry.

My credentials:
* Current physics PhD student at the prestigious UC Santa Cruz.
* Graduated with a physics degree, having taken math and chemistry courses, at San Francisco State University (SFSU).
* I have taught supplementary physics courses for the past two years, helping students to succeed in their physics work.
* Over 6 years of tutoring experience.

I've been tutoring for six years now. Since my beginning tutoring experience when I was in high school, I have expanded my knowledge of the math and sciences while pursuing my PhD in physics at UC Santa Cruz.
While math and science seem intimidating when first being approached, experience tells me these subjects can be learned by any student.

Like the old adage about teaching a man to fish so he may eat for a lifetime, I try to instill in my students a deeper understanding of the subject than seems required. Why? It is such comprehension that leads to the skill necessary to tackle any curve ball question a teacher or professor throws at a student on an exam. More than anything, I hope to give students a great connection with the subject. If he or she find themselves enjoying the subject, studying no longer becomes a chore. This is what motivates my tutoring.

I live physics. Studying it in university requires dedication. While you or your student might not be pursuing a physics degree, such a course lends itself to learning a useful way of thinking. Besides the mathematical skills one gains from studying physics, one also gains a deep sense of intuition, analyzing, and problem-solving skills.

Thanks for checking my profile out! Give me a try. I have a deep appreciation for these subjects, and I'll try to pass on that feeling to every one of my students.
