My first experience tutoring was when I was a marketing major as an undergraduate. This was my first foray in the world of teaching. Later, after I switched majors, I became a teaching assistant at WSU. I was told I had a knack for teaching and won an award for excellence in teaching. While a graduate student I tutored to make extra money for a local tutoring company. My students stayed with me for their entire semesters, which means I must have been pretty effective for them to want to see me week after week.
After graduating with my M.S. in Physics and Astronomy I worked at several local area community colleges teaching physics and astronomy. I was also hired as a temporary instructor at Roeper for an academic year. I currently teach full time at a local community college. I love being able to help students learn that the monumental problem isn't so monumental when they are able to see the pattern in problem solving.
I learn how my student's think so that I can teach them methods of problem solving geared towards their natural ways of thinking. I believe students learn best when they are the ones solving the problems and not me. I guide the problem solving, instead of taking over the problem solving. My goal is to have students leave the lesson feeling more confident with their problem solving skills than when they arrived.
Don't wait until the last minute to get help when preparing for exams or homework! I'm here to help you now. Get help the moment you realize that the problems just seem too hard to solve.

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.
I have been teaching physics at the college level since 1997. I have taught physics at Wayne State University and local community colleges. As a graduate student, I worked for a local tutoring company for several years. I also worked as an independent tutor for many years. I currently teach physical science, physics, and astronomy at the college level full time.
