I have been a teaching assistant in physics for four years teaching physics I and II to undergraduate science majors at Michigan State University and teaching physics II to engineering majors at the University of Connecticut. To me, teaching has many rewards. It is great to be a part of the moment where someone 'get's it' and from then on have mastered the required concept. It is also great to see people figure things out as we go along or see where the logical progression in the lesson will take them.
I also think it is important to emphasize that physics and math have many real-world applications and the things that are being learned are not just abstractions but something useful and interesting. I think most people enjoy having a better understanding of the things we generally take for granted in our world. That and it's nice to know how much you are supposed to pay with tax included. Being fluent numbers has no end of benefits.
I have an undergraduate minor in mathematics from the University of Connecticut and a master's degree in mathematics with a concentration in actuarial science also from the University of Connecticut.
I have a bachelor's in science with a major in physics and philosophy and a minor in mathematics from the University of Connecticut. I also have a master's in physics from Michigan State University (my graduate concentration was experimental nuclear astrophysics). I have been a physics a TA for 4 years and was a supplemental instructor at the Naval Academy Preparatory School for 2 years.
I am easy-going and patient but determined. I am confident that everyone has a lot to learn from physics and math and that it can be fun learning the way the world works. Success feels good, you should too. I have been a teaching assistant in physics for four years teaching physics I and II to undergraduate science majors at Michigan State University and teaching physics II to engineering majors at the University of Connecticut.

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.
