About Walter

I am looking to tutor students in science or math. I have expertise in this area, including a Master's Degree in physics from Penn State. At Penn State, I worked as a teaching assistant for six semesters, so I understand how to instruct. I taught introductory physics for pre-med students, which gave me practice in explaining technical concepts to people whose area of expertise differs from mine. I enjoy teaching; one of the most rewarding experiences I've had is seeing a student finally grasp a difficult concept. Although my degree is in physics, I am knowledgeable about other fields as well, especially math. I have been tutoring for over a year now, and I have experience working with students of all learning styles and education levels. I am willing to travel.

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 took Algebra 1 in middle school. Since then, I have built on my algebra knowledge with a wide array of advanced mathematics. Therefore, I am very comfortable with the basics of algebra.

Algebra 2

I took Algebra 2 in middle school. After that, I built on those skills on my way to a master's degree in physics. I've helped many people improve their algebra skills.

Bible Studies

I have been a Christian my entire life, and I've been studying the Bible since I could read. I have read commentaries, and have memorized over 100 verses.

Calculus

I took three semesters of calculus at The University of Maryland, and did well in all of them. I went on to use what I'd learned to obtain my bachelor's and master's degrees in physics.

Chess

I have been playing chess since I was 8 years old. I've read multiple strategy books and am currently ranked #418/1364 on the itsyourturn.com chess ladder.

Differential Equations

I took Math 246: Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers at the University of Maryland while pursuing my bachelor's degree in physics. I received an A- in the class.

Linear Algebra

I took Math 461: Linear Algebra for Scientists and Engineers at The University of Maryland while pursuing my bachelor's degree in physics. I received a B in the course.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Windows based computers for the past 20 years. I am familiar with the Windows UI.

Physics

I have a master's degree in physics from Penn State. I also have six semesters of experience as a physics teaching assistant. During this time, I have assisted students in recitation, as well as one-on-one during my office hours.

Piano

I have been playing the piano since I was 8 years old. I have taken 10 years of lessons, and I am able to perform many different pieces at a high level.

Precalculus

I took Precalculus in high school. After that, I went on to take AP calculus, and major in physics in college and grad school. So, I am comfortable with precalculus concepts. I've had practice over the past year teaching these concepts to other students.

Great AP Calculus Tutor!!! — When I needed a tutor to help with my summer homework in order to prepare for my upcoming AP Calculus class in the upcoming school year, Walter answered my call.
