About Donovan


Bio

I earned my Bachelor's in Physics at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and my PhD. at Lehigh University. While at Kutztown I worked as a tutor in Math, Physics, Economics, and almost tutored Organic Chemistry (I did rather well for the first lesson without even taking the course). I also worked at the Da Vinci Science Center as a floor coordinator. My educational responsibilities included training volunteers of a wide age range on all exhibits in the center, and lead groups through the...

I earned my Bachelor's in Physics at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and my PhD. at Lehigh University. While at Kutztown I worked as a tutor in Math, Physics, Economics, and almost tutored Organic Chemistry (I did rather well for the first lesson without even taking the course). I also worked at the Da Vinci Science Center as a floor coordinator. My educational responsibilities included training volunteers of a wide age range on all exhibits in the center, and lead groups through the center educating them on the exhibits.
As a graduate student I worked as a teaching assistant instructing introductory Physics labs. I was able to clarify the scientific principles covered in lab, teach by example, and also ensure understanding of the covered material through supplementary questions. Long story short, I have plenty of experience tutoring Math and Science, and know how to have fun doing it, while making seemingly complex ideas simple and easy to apply.

I have tutored in these subjects to many students while at Kutztown University and minored in Mathematics. I have taken courses for a statistics certificate through Kutztown. My professor for probability even announced to the class towards the end of the semester that someone (no names, but it was me) had made a mockery of his course by obtaining an average over 100% on the tests and homework.

I have a PhD in Physics which focused on computer simulations of model systems and phase transitions. I've tutored undergraduate courses and have taught college introductory labs with great success according to my students. I often clarified material that the main lecturer or recitation instructor had not covered with great detail or due diligence.

I want you to understand whatever topics you are having issues with. You can learn the material. It's usually some misunderstanding of a small idea or principle. I will help you find those trouble spots, set them straight, and give you the confidence to be able to succeed without my help.
