Duke University (physics)
I have 28 years of experience tutoring and teaching middle and high school math and science, plus three semesters of experience teaching college physics. Algebra and physics are my specialties, but I work with multiple levels of both subjects.

I have a BS and an MS in physics in addition to certifications for public libraries and school media centers. I received a national commendation for my score on the math Praxis exam for teaching in public schools. I have worked with special needs students (most notably Asperger's syndrome and ADD) on organizational skills in addition to math and science skills and attended training courses at the Chapel Hill TEACCH center.

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 a BS in physics and an MS in medical physics. I am certified via Wyzant in prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry. On March 14, 2009 I received an ETS Recognition of Excellence for the Mathematics: Content Knowledge Praxis for a score within the top 15% of all test-takers who took the assessment in previous years.
I have a degree in K-12 media, thus qualifying me to work with students of all ages.
I spent a year teaching and tutoring elementary-aged students in reading and math at Montessori Community School. I taught students aged 18 months - 12 years at the Greensboro Montessori School from 2003-2005.
