Bio

My name is Percy, I was born in a country in West Africa called Cameroon. Yes, I am a long way from home, but I believe I have had a successful educational and professional career thus far in the western world. I credit this success to the good Lord’s blessing alongside my hard work and dedication.

My name is Percy, I was born in a country in West Africa called Cameroon. Yes, I am a long way from home, but I believe I have had a successful educational and professional career thus far in the western world. I credit this success to the good Lord’s blessing alongside my hard work and dedication. Growing up in Cameroon where high level technology and education resources were limited, I was always the creative kid who made something out of the little he had. From building toy cars, bird cages, and houses out of bamboo to making toy caterpillars using empty tomato cans. My parents looked at a 6-year-old me and saw an engineer in the making...I did not disappoint them.

I enrolled in, and successfully completed a bachelor’s in biomedical engineering at (Carl Von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Germany) and a master’s in medical physics at Oklahoma State University. I am currently a therapy Medical Physics Resident at Willis Knighton Cancer Center. When I look back at my young educational and professional career, I ask myself, " What did I derive the most pleasure doing?" The answer is usually “teaching”. I love teaching, and at almost every stage in my career I have been involved in teaching at different levels. While in Grad school I was a fulltime Physics teaching assistant. I thought calculus physics and electrodynamics laboratory sessions. Currently while completing my residency, a fellow colleague and I created an education class for our patients called “Radiation 101”. Our radiation 101 class which we voluntarily present to educate our patients on their treatment modality has received a lot of positive reviews. In 2017 I was a tutored a high school student who was suffering from ADHD. I helped her improve her Math grades from F's to A's in the space of one month. Helping students, improving grades and sharing my knowledge is something I derive a lot of pressure in doing.

I have been a physicist and mathematician all my life, I was nominated in the list of top students nationwide in the Cameroon General Certificate of Examination (analogous to the GED in the USA). I strongly believe I strike the right balance in not only having the knowledge, but also the patients, and communication skills needed by a tutor to be able to successfully pass on my knowledge when called upon. Cameroon is a bilingual country, so I speak English and French. I am also fluent in German, so employ me as your tutor and we can have sessions in any of these languages if you wish.

I completed undergraduate and graduate level Math courses. I have a very comprehensive understanding of the major areas of Math; Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry and Calculus. I have the experience in successfully guiding students to better grades in Math and helping students pass their proficiency examinations.

I am a physicist by profession, through put my career I have gained in-depth knowledge in the different major areas of physics. Mechanics. Motion. Thermodynamics, Heat and temperature, Optics. Light. Vibrations and wave phenomena, Sound and electromagnetic spectrum, Electromagnetism, Electricity and magnetism, Relativity, Movement of particles, Quantum mechanics, Radiation and Nuclear physics.

What you need is a tutor whose goals are to help encourage you, and teach you the concepts not only accurately but in a concise manner. Living in Germany I learned a thing or two about punctuality, and professionalism. I will prepare for any lessons you schedule in order to present the material in the most comprehensive way possible. Lets get to work!
