About Darrick

I have been a Teaching Assistant at USF for over 2 years and I have been privately tutoring also for the last 2 years. I have taught classes at the college level including General Physics Lab courses and Problem Solving Sections. I have experience in communicating general physics concepts to students with either a Calculus or Algebra-based background.

I enjoy helping students learn about physics. I like to focus on understanding the physical concepts, because it leads to an easier understanding of the math used to solve problems.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics from the University of South Florida where I am now a graduate student in the Applied Physics Department. I received my Master's Degree in Applied Physics, also from the University of South Florida, and I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Applied Physics.

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.

Physics

I have an M.S. in Applied Physics from the University of South Florida, and I am currently working towards a Ph.D. also in Applied Physics. My undergraduate work was also in Physics, and correspondingly I have a background in mathematics.

I have tutored undergraduate and high school students for the past two years, and I am actively involved in physics outreach programs to educate younger students, particularly in the field of Optics. I have also taught courses at the college level including Physics Problem Solving applied towards both the Calculus and Algebra-based courses. More recently I have taught General Physics Lab courses.
