About Alan

Hi! Through my tutoring experiences, I have found that students have different needs and expectations from a tutoring session. My tutoring style and methods adapt to fit those needs and expectations. That is, I don't have a rigid routine or set plan for a session. Some students just want to work specific problems, others also want to have physics and astronomy concepts presented to them. Not only do I provide students with the typical questions they may encounter on a test but I also try to provide students with a study strategy so that they will be able to accomplish more on their own.

Education:

I have spent the last 4 years in the graduate physics program at Auburn University pursuing a PhD. Currently, I am not enrolled.

I have a B.S. in physics and a B.S. in astronomy from Valdosta State University. I graduated in 2008.

I also have an A.A. in music from Macon State College.

Experience:

I have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Auburn University for the last four years. My duties included teaching laboratory and study sessions for the undergraduate classes: physics I, physics II and astronomy.

While at Auburn, I was also a private tutor for four years.

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 have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Auburn University for the last four years. I am qualified to teach differential equations. I took DE and made a B when I was completing my BS in Physics and BS in Astronomy. I also studied physics in graduate school for 4 years and it demanded not only the understanding of differential equations but the use of differential calculus.

Linear Algebra

I am qualified to tutor Linear Algebra. I took the class and made a B when I was completing my Bachelor's degree in physics. Furthermore, linear algebra is used quite heavily in the study of Quantum Mechanics, in the study of oscillating systems in classical mechanics and in many other advanced subjects in physics. I have studied all of these extensively as an undergraduate and when I was in graduate school.
