I have experience doing physics teaching and physics research. My research field is theoretical nuclear physics. I study the physics of the "strong interaction." My doctoral studies were done in experimental nuclear physics, and my postdoctoral studies were done in theoretical nuclear physics. My professional research has been done in theoretical nuclear physics.
While doing my postdoctoral studies at the Ohio State University in Columbus, I worked with high school students who were striving to pass the comprehensive exam that every high school student of the Columbus public schools must pass, in order to graduate. Mathematics was the subject I tutored with these students. I will not attempt to tutor math with Wyzant but will stick to my fields of physics and physical science.
What might make me outstanding as a science tutor is my love for the subject and the enthusiasm it generates within me. I would try to catch the person I am tutoring where they are and then lead them forward. I would try to avoid discouraging remarks.
I could tutor high school physical science, high school physics, and college and university physics, for freshmen and sophomores, and selected physics courses for juniors and seniors. I welcome contact from students who want to learn more about me and who wish to schedule lessons. I have experience doing physics teaching and physics research.

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.
My physics qualifications include a doctorate in nuclear physics, as well as physics teaching and research experience.
