About Noah

Hi! I'm a graduate of Caltech in Chemistry, and continuing my studies in Physics at Tulane. I did fairly well on the old SAT (800 V, 740 M), and was AP State Scholar for my state the year I graduated high school, so I think I'm qualified to tutor for AP exams. In addition, I'd be happy to help with the SAT. I can also offer assistance in study and test taking strategies. I have taught introductory chemistry labs for two terms at UCSB and was an undergraduate teaching assistant for freshman chemistry at Caltech, a required core course. Furthermore, I was an adjunct physics lab instructor at Loyola University New Orleans.

I'd ideally like to tutor for AP Physics B/C, AP Calc BC, AP Comp Sci AB (I took the C++ exam, but can work with Java as well), Chemistry, or European History, but any subject I've indicated is one I feel I am qualified in, and certainly at levels below AP/IB. I have a car and will generally not charge extra for a reasonable distance.

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.

Algebra 1

I can illustrate the basic concepts using relevant, fun examples and word problems.

C++

I understand ANSI C as well as C++, including ins and outs of templates, macros, inheritance and closures. I have worked in both small and large corporate environments requiring an understanding of C++ and can offer advice from the perspective of a working software engineer. I understand common pitfalls encountered when learning to program, especially using pointers, and can leverage my knowledge of assembly and memory (stack, etc.) to help illustrate memory management in C/C++.

Differential Equations

I have taken Ordinary Differential Equations in college, done well, and tutored PDE courses using Strauss. I am currently working through McOwen.

Geometry

One of my favorite subjects. I can help students learn via interactive computer demonstrations.
