About Heidi


Bio

I am an experienced tutor and teacher, having taught and/or tutored on the high school and college level at various times for nearly 30 years. However, my scientific experience is not limited to teaching and tutoring. I conducted research on rocket fuels, the interstellar medium, ocean acoustics, and the gravity anomaly. My experiences in research and operations enhance my tutoring because I can describe real-world situations illustrating the concepts.

I am an experienced tutor and teacher, having taught and/or tutored on the high school and college level at various times for nearly 30 years. However, my scientific experience is not limited to teaching and tutoring. I conducted research on rocket fuels, the interstellar medium, ocean acoustics, and the gravity anomaly. My experiences in research and operations enhance my tutoring because I can describe real-world situations illustrating the concepts.

I love sharing my love of science and math with students. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is the ability to work with a student to identify where the student is confused and modifying my instruction to address the particular area or areas of misunderstanding. I try to break complex processes and problems down in to easier steps to help clarify the problem solving process.

I have a master's degree in mathematics and have taught and/or tutored math classes from algebra 1 through calculus and college algebra.

I have a PhD in physics and have completed graduate classes in chemistry and astronomy and worked in physics and astronomy research. I taught college physics as well as physics, chemistry, earth science, astronomy, and biology on the high school level. During college I tutored physics, algebra, and astronomy. I have written two short courses in acoustics on the college level and student study guides for three astronomy courses (stellar astronomy, solar astronomy, and planetary sciences) on the high school level.

My goal is always to best serve the student. I am open to suggestions of resources and tools from parents and students, and will recommend resources and tools if they will benefit the student. I am available to students in Albuquerque or the East Mountains. Please feel free to contact me with additional questions or to schedule a lesson. I am easy to reach and will respond promptly.
