Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne, FL (Astrophysics)
Florida Atlantic University (PhD)
In the last seven years I have professionally taught astronomy, calculus, calculus-based physics and privately tutored for physics topics such as algebra, electromagnetism and classical and quantum mechanics. I also have graduate experience in education research and a Ph.D. in physics.
I prefer tutoring more advanced courses, such as calculus, differential equations, linear algebra and physics and helping others develop an appreciation for them as well. Advanced courses are broadly connected with other subjects, which adds to their difficulty but also to their power. And, in my experience, understanding these connections helps to visualize and interpret each assignment. Accordingly, I focus on conceptual understanding over drill-and-kill.
I can typically meet on short notice and have a 12-hour cancellation policy. I am flexible to meet at different locations and advise that the student suggests a meeting location that is sufficiently quiet and that they are comfortable with. However, I regularly hold sessions at the Harold Washington library.

Excellent tutor, rapid email respond. He was very patient and he can explain complex subjects in a clear manner. Highly recommended!
I used Shawn for a college 300 level physics mechanics course. He was the ideal tutor. He knew the material, explained it well, developed a learning strategy for me, and implemented it well. I'd definitely use Shawn again.
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.
I have a B.S. in Space Sciences/Astronomy and Astrophysics and a Ph.D. in gravitational physics. I have professionally taught astronomy at the collegiate level and am an avid sky enthusiast. I have also designed assessment for the astronomy portion of Science Olympiad in south Florida
I have a Ph.D. in gravitational/mathematical physics and specifically in analysis on differentiable manifolds and systems of partial differential equations. I have also professionally taught for Calculus II at the collegiate level. Officially, the courses that I've taken involving calculus include Calculus I-II, Differential Equations, Complex Variables, Boundary Value Problems and graduate Mathematics for Physicists.
I have a Ph.D. in physics and specifically in mathematical and gravitational physics for which I commonly employ differential geometry. Newton's and Schrodinger's equations are second-order differential equations which we use to analyze classical and quantum systems. We commonly employ Fourier transformations to analyze quantum systems.
I have a Ph.D. in physics and as an undergraduate I took linear algebra/differential equations. Additionally, linear algebra is required for quantum mechanics and symplectic methods in classical mechanics. Whenever I lecture physics, professionally, I ensure to emphasize vectors, their applications and systems of equations.
My Ph.D. is in Physics. I have also professionally taught Physics I and II at the collegiate level. I have also privately tutored more advanced course (which build on the topics from a typical physics course) such as Classical and Quantum Mechanics, Electrodynamics and Thermodynamics.
